I picked up this book while trying to conceive. The relevant advice for me was limited and pretty lame: eat well, exercise, don't smoke, take prenatal vitamins. All stuff that I was pretty well aware of going in to the process. About two-thirds of this book is dedicated to fertility problems which thankfully I did not have. Perhaps it would be a more useful book for some struggling to conceive. That said, I'm not really a fan of the overall tone of the "What to Expect" series/franchise in general. I find the author to be a little condescending and her attempts at humour to keep the subject matter light come off as dumb to me and serve to emphasize that reading this book is a waste of time.
