I bought this book when I pregnant with my first child. I read it and re-read it over and over again. The information is great and the pictures are even better! The ultrasound pictures are great and gives you a clear idea what your own baby looks like inside of you at any given point in your pregnancy. I also found it handy after my daughter was born...then AGAIN when I got pregnant with my second child. This is the ONLY pregnancy book you will ever need!!!

Format: Paperback
First off, this is not a cover-to-cover read. That's common to the three pregnancy/parenting I currently own (including What to Expect When You're Expecting - 4th Edition and Parenting For Dummies). Don't expect to find everything within pregnancy reference books to be relevant to your case.

I thought that this was a highly useful reference book, although I honestly believe this to be a good companion book to What to Expect When You're Expecting - 4th Edition. This book is rich with illustrative and photographic reference and contains a wealth of information pertinent to a developing fetus, pregnancy and maternal health. The reason that I say that this is a good companion book to What to Expect When You're Expecting is that I found that this book doesn't provide as much in-depth information of the health effects and symptoms of pregnancy. I am very pleased that there are exercises listed in this book which have been adapted for expectant mothers, although I've yet to actually make use of those. Still, I don't regret this purchase at all and have given it four stars.

Format: Paperback
I come from a medical family with a lot of healthy babies and active mothers. This is the first book that reflected the level-headed advice given to me by family members. It talks about the risks of certain activities and foods without making you feel like you've ruined your baby's chance of a healthy life by week 6 of your pregnancy. It is very informative, helpful, easy to read, and has sections for the dad-to-be as well. It distinguishes between things that have been proven to affect you during pregnancy versus things that may have an affect you during your pregnancy. It has managed to put into words some of my fears and concerns so concisely, I am constantly calling my husband over to read sections of the book.

This is the one and only pregnancy guide I recommend. It is extremely down to earth and not scary to read; I found other pregnancy guides to overwhelm you with unlikely scenarios with regards to complications. The Pregnancy Bible gives you just what you need to know, and information on the most common complications. (Any info needed on more complex and rare complications really should be given to you by your doctor.) The week by week guides are great and my husband and I very much enojoyed following them along with my pregnancy. Baby number two is currently in the oven and once again The Pregnancy Bible is back on my bedside table.

Lots of great information, no fear mongering stuff just very reassuring. I have been recommending it to friends already and I am about half way through reading it from cover to cover. Very well written and organized.

I was originally gonna get "What to expect when your expecting" but I'm happy I read the reviews which pointed me to this book instead. Very informative and the pictures make it fun to read.

A friend recommend this book to me when I was pregnant and have subsequently sent it to 3 other friends who are pregnant. I liked this book mostly because of the week by week play of how your body is changing and what is going on with the little miracle in your belly. It's also a great reference book. For those of you in Canada, I would recommend a supplemental canadian resource because some of the information about check-ups and what to expect from your caregiver is different in the States.
