Your Pregnancy Week By Week Review
I bought the pregnancy book, Your Pregnancy Week by Week when I first found out that I was expecting back in week 5 or 6 of my own pregnancy. From that point on I followed the book and kept it bedside for rest of my pregnancy.
Your Pregnancy Week By Week isn't a reference manual covering every effect some medication may have, or every single thing that may occur during your pregnancy. This is just a basics pregnancy book that like the title states, gives you a week by week look at where you are at.
Your Pregnancy Week By Week
From week 1 to week 40 you can have an idea of the size of your little munchkin (with pictures of actual size up to week 11), with estimates of weight and height for that particular week. Plus a good idea on what developing at that time. The exepecting mom can know where her uterus should be at that particular point, or an estimate of how much weight she should have put on by now according to the doctors.
Other Great Pregnancy Books
In Your Pregnancy Week By Week, for each week a few pages are dedicated to little bits of advice on nutrition, basic pregnancy advice, pregnancy tests that you will take or may take, pregnancy complications that may arise, as well as ideas and tips for dad to help mom and share the experience, and more.
The layout of Your Pregnancy Week by Week is friendly and visually fun. Well sketched pictures of what your little growing baby may look like at that time can be found though out book especially in beginning when some much change in appearance occurs. Towards the end of the 40 weeks advice is given on preparing and getting ready for labor emotionally and physically.
I've read a plethora of pregnancy books during my pregnancy and while its nice to know what's going on month by month, when your pregnant you what exactly what's going on inside your belly. Until the writers can put out a day by day account of your growing baby, which I swear pregnant women would buy (I would!) , Your Pregnancy Week By Week is the best book offering week by week information.
