I liked this one. It was divided into months and had a good deal of information without being completely overwhelming with every detail I don't need to know. It even made me laugh a couple of times! I liked the monthly diagrams of what u could be feeling or what is going on with your body.

Really easy to digest book. Fun to read, easy to go through. Useful but not overwhelming. Sort of like reading a magazine, which might have been their goal. I loved how bright and colorful it was with each page broken up into sections that stood out.

This book was okay... it was fairly anecdotal, which was a nice balance to the other more 'researchy' baby books I've been reading, but it also left me feeling fairly unsettled. What can I say, I like science.

Definately a great read for a mother to be. Great illustrations. What to expect is really broken down well and put into simpler terms than just the traditional What to expect when prego book. Very colorful. There are even checklists in the back that are really helpful!!

The way everything is broken down and simplified in a non-patronizing way is fantastic! And the illustrations are fantastic for putting things into perspective for someone not medically trained. I regularly refer to this book when working with moms-to-be to explain things. Love it.

This was my favorite book about pregnancy. It is in a very easy to read format with great illustrations. It gives a lot of information without being overwhelming and is easy to use to refer back to things. There are also a lot of helpful checklists.

This book was super helpful for new moms! Just a few reader friendly pages for each month of pregnancy. This would be a great gift for someone expecting. :)

Really breaks things down at a level anyone can understand. Highly recommend the book to new moms to be as well as dads! Everything you'd expect to find in one book.

I only read months 6 through 10 since I'm in month 6. It seems helpful, although I guess I'll find out as I progress.

This book covers pregnancy on a very superficial level. I found it spoke down to my intelligence. There are more useful resources available for pregnant women.

Cutesy and fun. A nice addition to the more heavily involved books I've been reading.
