    1. The very savvy marketing people make sure to note conspicuously on the cover that this book was written by doctors who are also parents. And you know what? That's a pretty useful thing to know. I'm not one of those people who believe that "one mom's simple trick to losing a belly" is automatically a smart diet plan or that a schoolteacher is likely to invent a cold prevention drug that the pharmaceutical companies couldn't. I prefer to leave my medicine to people who have actually been trained a [...]


    2. I haven't read this one cover to cover, but I'm including it here anyway because it is by far my favorite pregnancy book. Most of them try to hold your hand, but then end up making you feel guilty that you're going to ruin your child's life if you don't do things exactly the way they describe in the book.This one, however, is so clinic that there are no value judgments whatsoever. They explain that there are many different ways for pregnancies to progress and explain the different ways medical p [...]


    3. I chose this book as my "pregnancy reference guide" in lieu of "What to Expect" due to its negative reviews. Fortunately, this book has the goods to back it up. Authoritative, objective, and grounded, this book omits the gushy "mommy" tones that I find in most pregnancy books and leave only the facts, including lots of statistics and outside additional sources to consider. This book also includes a lot of information on pre-pregnancy, labor, and post-pregnancy, which is nice. The middle of the b [...]


    4. By far the best pregnancy book out there. Much better than the most popular pregnancy book, which I borrowed and read a couple of years ago (you know which one I mean). First thing, this is a resource with academic credentials written by 2 OBs and 1 CNM and endorsed by the Mayo Clinic, v. the "mom" credentials of the other book where the author has no academic credentials. The differences go on from there. Each month is broken out by explaining what is happening to baby and what's happening to m [...]



    5. Very informative and straightforward, particularly for someone like me who has no interest in giving birth anywhere other than a hospital. If you're interested in an alternative birthing arrangement, you won't find much information on that here, but that's probably not surprising, given who puts the book out. Other common pregnancy decisions (amnio or not? pain meds during labor or not? breast or bottle?) are described with a nonjudgmental rundown of the pros and cons of both sides.Other than th [...]


    6. The worst part about my first trimester is that nausea kept me from reading. (Only 2 books read the whole month of September! ARGH!) I spent most of the last month in bed watching a marathon of Curb Your Enthusiasm, because only Larry David could make me feel better through his discomfort, haha. I did consult this reference guide a number of times in my misery (primarily to find out WHEN DOES THIS CRAP STOP?) and found it to be a good, scientific source of information. I detest anything cutesy, [...]


    7. I eschewed the standard What to Expect When You Are Expecting because I am the type of person who thinks the worst case scenario will always happen to her, and after a few pages of What to Expect I knew reading it would turn me into a nutcase. The Mayo Clinic Guide is a straightforward, nonjudgmental, scientific reference book for pregnancy. There are no ponies and unicorns, no references to miraculous angels from heaven, no judgment on the normally controversial stuff like nursing versus formul [...]


    8. When I found out that I was pregnant, I check out a ton of pregnancy books from the library before choosing which to get my own copy of. I picked a lot of the big, well-known titles, including What To Expect When You're Expecting, and some lesser known titles, but this one came out on top.What I valued about it over others was simply the layout. While I felt that some if the other pregnancy guides were too heavy and verbose, the Mayo guide broke down the information in fairly brief, basic sectio [...]



    9. You know what this means!!!Physical copy would probably be a bit easier to navigate and flip around to different sections then the e-book was


    10. Incontinence is a serious and common issue affecting millions. People usually keep quiet about this sort of thingbut NOT ANYMORE!


    11. Okay, so I didn't technically read this book cover to cover, but 1. that's not how reference books are generally supposed to be read, and 2. I think I've earned the right to count this as "read," since I went into preterm labor and basically skipped my third trimester, rendering much of the book irrelevant. This is probably the best pregnancy book available, as it gives you practical information without being fear-mongering (as many pregnancy books are wont to be). In fact, it mostly lumps all t [...]


    12. This book is written in a easy to read and understand manner. I felt it gave me a good understanding of what to expect and also had some tables that are useful for a quick reference.


    13. More of a reference book than a cover-to-cover book. I was still in the market for a month-by-month book when I initially grabbed this. It's fine for that, if brief. The real value is in the "decision guides," alphabetical symptom index, and complications discussions.Which raises an interesting question for me. Every time I opened this book to look up heartburn or carpel tunnel or whatever, I always snagged on the word "healthy" in the title. It's just such a meaningless word in this context. Pa [...]


    14. This book is a lifesaver, and is the only pregnancy book I consult regularly. My husband also finds it helpful. It gives you just enough info that you feel informed, but not so much that you feel like you're always on the verge of miscarriage. It has a few charts to consult if you're experiencing certain side effects (nausea, bleeding, dizziness, etc. and then in the third trimester section, cramping, etc.); the charts are possibly the most helpful thing in the book because they have rows for va [...]



    15. This may be my new go-to pregnancy guide, and I wish this was considered the "Pregnancy Bible" rather than the horrific "What to Expect While You're Expecting." Well organized, honest and straightforward without being condescending & fear-mongering, and encourages mothers-to-be to be active, informed participants in their prenatal care rather than patronizingly stating that you should "just so whatever the good doctor says" This book is an incredibly helpful, informative pregnancy resource. [...]


    16. Disclaimer: I didn't read this from cover to cover, but did read most of the salient chapters and sections.The book is kind of an infodump. It's good if you like that, or if you're stranded on an island with no internet and no doctors. But if you're stranded on an island and pregnant, then you probably have bigger worries than what pregnancy books are worth reading.Parts that I found helpful:- Breakdown of what the mom should expect each couple of weeks.- The fetus's growth and development broke [...]


    17. Has been a great companion during my wife's pregnancy. Comes from a very traditional medical perspective, both a plus and a minus for couples looking at both traditional and non-tradition methods of medical care. From my understanding, much better than "What to Expect While Your Expecting" if you really want to understand the development of your baby and its effect on the mother.


    18. a great reference. when the fetal is due, the book will even extract it from the birthing canal at no extra cost. (suffice it to state that the book was not allowed to participate as directly in the commencement of pregnancy.)


    19. I figure if I don't count these baby books on my list this year, I might not make my goal total. This guide was informative and well organized. Definitely minimized my need of googling pregnancy issues, which was for the best.


    20. When you are pregnant, you want to know two things:What's going on with the baby?What's happening to me?This is a no-nonsense week-to-week guide to those two things. It leaves out all the sanctimonious bullshit contained in "What to expect" because seriously, who needs that?



    21. The same info you'd expect, but I really enjoyed how organized it is. Plus the pages were soft so, you know, 4 stars.


    22. I've heard that the "What to Expect" series is patronizing and fear-inducing, so I got this book instead. No complaints - straight forward, reasonable, clear.


    23. First off, I'm a nurse so I enjoy the medical side of a lot of things. Second, this was my first pregnancy and like most new moms, I felt clueless on a lot of things (still do). I got this book to give me direct info that was easy to read. Things I like about this book is that it's not full of jokes to make it easier to digest or cute drawings. This book is like a text book in a way. Meaning, headlines describing paragraphs that are easy to find and quickly read, anatomical pictures, and a strai [...]


    24. This book was very helpful during my pregnancy. It was the main text I read to stay abreast of the changes happening in my body and Mina's growth and development over the months. It created a nice rhythm for me to have a new chapter on these topics to read each month. While it doesn't replace the helpfulness of hands-on childbirth classes, I found myself rereading many chapters in this book in anticipation of labor and delivery. As it is written by folks at the Mayo Clinic, there is an emphasis [...]


    25. I'm using this as my basic, standard reference for month-by-month pregnancy tracking and to-do's. It's very useful for that purpose. Very neutral in tone, pretty much the official medical-establishment voice, a good baseline for making sure you're not missing anything obvious. If you've ever wondered "how do moms and pregnant women have so much technical medical info?? how will I ever learn this?", in reality it isn't that much, and it's all covered in books like this one. I also note that this [...]


    26. I kept this by my bedside throughout my pregnancy and what a wonderful resource it was! Week by week I read through what my little one was doing and reassured myself that the totally weird symptoms I was experiencing were normal. The exercises were nice too (not that I did any, but they were nice to look at while I put more food in my face). There were also a few sections for fathers, which I appreciated -- so often pregnancy feels like this huge task the woman does by herself while the man migh [...]
