What to Expect Before You're Expecting ($8.85) A lot of good information, in an easy to follow format. - I learn new things each time I read it and It makes me very excited to get ready to have a baby and to know what to expect. - I think it was an attempt to make the book more entertaining but it dilutes the real facts and make it a bit annoying to read.

What to expect when you're expecting. Ok: I don't love this book, but it was the book for me when expecting, covered way more than any other book I looked at, so I could look up weird symptoms or discomfort and be reassured "that's ok, it's normal, lots of expectant mothers get that". Not recommended for those who will read it and think "oh my god, ALL that's going to happen to me?."
