Product Description

From the Back Cover

Expecting to Expect? Plan Ahead.

Everything you need to know before you’re expecting to help you prepare for the healthiest possible pregnancy and the healthiest possible baby. Filled with practical tips, empathetic advice, and savvy strategies all designed to help you get that baby of your dreams on board faster. How to get your bodies into tip-top baby-making shape. Which foods feed fertility. Which lifestyle habits to quit and which to cultivate. How to have sex for conception success (from timing to positions to logistics). And when to seek fertility help. There’s even a fertility planner to help you keep track of your conception adventure.

Answers to all your baby-making questions:
  • How can I tell when I’m ovulating if my cycles aren’t regular?
  • Should we be having sex everyday? Every other day? Three times a day?
  • I’ve heard certain sex positions can help you conceive―true?
  • I’m overweight―does that affect my chances of getting pregnant?
  • Can certain foods help you get pregnant?
  • I’m 37. Does that mean I’ll have a harder time getting pregnant?
  • How long should we keep trying to conceive before we get some help?


About the Author

It all started with a baby…and a book. Heidi Murkoff conceived the idea for What to Expect When You're Expecting during her first pregnancy, when she couldn’t find answers to her questions or reassurance for her worries in the books she’d turned to for much-needed advice. Determined to write a guide that would help other expectant parents sleep better at night, Heidi delivered the proposal for What to Expect When You’re Expecting just hours before delivering her daughter, Emma.

Dubbed the “pregnancy bible”, the iconic New York Times bestseller is now in its all-new fourth edition, with over 18.5 million copies in print, and according to USA Today, is read by 93 percent of women who read a pregnancy book. Other titles in the series include Eating Well When You’re Expecting, What to Expect the First Year, What to Expect Before You’re Expecting (a complete preconception plan), and the newest member of the What to Expect family: What to Expect the Second Year, the must-have guide for parents of toddlers. The What to Expect books have sold more than 34 million copies in the US alone, and are published in over 30 languages.

In 2005, Heidi expanded the What to Expect (WTE) brand online with WhatToExpect.com – the interactive, state-of-the-internet companion to the WTE books, and home to a vibrant, vast, yet close-knit community of 3 million parents. In 2009, WTE went mobile with the WTE Pregnancy Tracker (the most popular pregnancy app in the world), the WTE Fertility Tracker, the WTE Baby Name Finder, and the WTE First Year Tracker.
Heidi’s passionate commitment to moms and babies led to the creation of the What to Expect Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping underserved families expect healthy pregnancies, safe deliveries, and healthy, happy babies. With a beautiful, culturally appropriate low-literac

This was the first of many pregnancy books i have read before even expecting! I wanted to get as much info as I could about "what to expect" before Trying to conceive. I thought it was just ok, I learned a few things about nutrition and ovulation predicting, but most information was common sense or general knowledge. Although it was easy to read, it lacked depth and medical knowledge, leaving it somewhat superficial. I also thought that the writing was immature and annoying at times. I can enjoy humor, but i wanted well sound medical information, not a Cosmo-like version of what to expect. After reading many other books, I would not recommend this one because there are too many books out there that provide much more information than this one. Unless you have the funds to go through tons of book and have spare time, I wouldn't recommend this book. The Mayo Clinic Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy would be a much more well rounded choice, that informs you medically without assuming you lack th intelligence to comprehend pregnancy.

This book was very helpful in that it taught me about prepping my body to conceive and carry a baby/babies. I became motivated to check up on my weight and eating habits. It also helped me to understand my cycle and recognize when I'd be ovulating.

Parts 1 and 2- "Getting ready to make a baby" and "Making a baby"- were most helpful to me; and although I did not require the
last section, "Bumps on the road to baby", I'm sure many women (and men) will benefit from this section.

Overall, it's an informative and helpful book that I would recommend to anyone who is dedicated and committed to preparing themselves for a healthy and timely pregnancy.
