Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannan | 2/17/2014

    " I liked this book and it's weekly updates. It was a good balance of information without going overboard or freaking you out over every little thing. Towards the end, it seemed less helpful and started throwing in more complications and/or rare things that wouldn't apply to most. Overall, a good reference for keeping track of the pregnancy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katherine | 2/15/2014

    " Short articles on every week of pregnancy- what's happening to your body and what's happening for baby. I thought it was helpful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anastasia | 2/10/2014

    " Learned that there are a lot of things that could go wrong with one's body "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kelley | 2/10/2014

    " hate this book. The format and where to find information is not helpful at all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angie | 2/3/2014

    " This book is great for first-time pregnant women. It's well-written, informative, interesting, and useful. I love the way it is organized. It goes through your pregnancy week-by-week with what you're going through (or will be going through), what the baby is doing, and what to expect with different pregnancy topics or issues. I read it with my first baby and loved it. Now that I'm on number 4, it's still nice to have a review, but I find I skim lots of the paragraphs. I'm glad they have bold headings so I know that it's safe for me to skip a topic that doesn't apply to me and know I'm not missing something vital. It's also nice that the book has a detailed index so I can find a specific topic when I have a particular question or concern. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin | 2/3/2014

    " I think this book had good information (which is why I gave it 3 stars) but I did not like how it was organized. If you are looking for a book where you can strictly read what is happening during a specific week in pregnancy, this is not the book for you. The book has to be read in totality in order to appreciate its information. For example, while specific parts of the auditory system might be developing over a series of many weeks, the book only discusses hearing in week X, so you will miss out on information if you only read this on a weekly basis. Also, if you are a stress-ball, this might not be the book for you because a significant portion of the book (throughout the book) is dedicated to telling you about what can go wrong and warning signs. It talks about rare disorders quite a bit and in some cases repeatedly so some parts of the book were slow reading. I read the 6th edition (not the CD). I can't imagine trying to follow the information in this book while only listening. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/31/2014

    " Forget what to expect when you're expecting, this was the best week to week pregnancy book I found. There were detailed pictures of the babys growth, dad tips, and exercise suggestions for each week. Its fantastic! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 DaraB | 1/18/2014

    " Liked this one better than What to Expect. Week by week helps keep you more on track without lumping many of the changes together. Easy to read and comprehend. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elke | 1/2/2014

    " I really liked the way this book was organized. I felt that some of the information at the very end was incorrect (i.e. saying that under no circumstances can you eat or drink while in labor when my hospital provides jello and other light snacks to laboring mamas). I also found myself at week 38 of my pregnancy and thinking "Geez, what if I go into labor now and I don't make it through weeks 39-41?" Needless to say I quickly finished the book, throwing the weekly routine to the wind. :) Overall, I felt that this book was really good and would recommend this book over the other standard book (What to Expect When You're Expecting) but feel that reading both is really the way to go. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meredith | 12/20/2013

    " Loved this book during my last pregnancy. A lot of good information, and a little something to read every week, for those of us obsessed enough to need it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Provvi | 12/9/2013

    " Great book for first pregnancy! It explains how your baby is growing every week of your pregnancy, and what is happening to your (the mom) body. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Liza | 12/7/2013

    " I really like the layout of this book. I loved that each week it tells you what your baby should weight, measure in length, and what is developing. It has a section on baby, mom, and nutrition every week. I would definitely recommend this book to all pregnant women out there! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole Javvaji | 11/30/2013

    " Full of great info, and not as paranoia-inducing as some books can be. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracy | 11/14/2013

    " This book was great to read as I went week by week through my pregnancy. I really liked the mental image it gave of my baby inside! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather Jones | 11/10/2012

    " A waste of money. Only gave it two stars because there were few spelling and grammar errors. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marianne | 7/6/2012

    " I like this book for it's week by week charting. Day by day is too much and month by month is ridiculous. It's also a little more reasonable than the "What to expect..." series. I hate that book. This one doesn't make you feel like a crack whore for eating a donut. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn Oswald | 5/31/2012

    " Read in the car while commuting with my husband. The information week-by-week was very helpful as a 1st time mom and dad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sonia | 5/3/2012

    " I like that this book explains things in small chunks--that's all I can take at the moment--AND it doesn't really harp on all the horrible things that "might" happen to me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Idahogirl | 4/15/2012

    " This is a good book to read - but it can be a little condescending. Also, I am glad I read it BEFORE I am pregnant - it talked about stuff later in the book that one should know earlier in their pregnancy. I liked the layout of the Mayo Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vanessa | 12/9/2011

    " I love the detailed weekly information in this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mo | 12/1/2011

    " It's great to track your baby's development while pregnant. I preferred this book over all the other pregnancy books that I read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alissa | 11/2/2011

    " Pretty good and informative book. It had lots of information on the different complications that you could run into with pregnancies which I found interesting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ashley | 10/2/2011

    " My insurance company sent me a copy of this for free. It gives you the basic information and isn't a bad reference, but I think there are more comprehensive and modern guides out there. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 9/6/2011

    " Better than what to expect. Not the worst case scenario approach. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Allison | 7/18/2011

    " It was fine. It seemed to be heavy on the Standard American medical way to manage pregnancy and birth and light on your baby's growth and development. The opposite of what I was looking for in a pregnancy book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 7/17/2011

    " I liked this book - it told me what to expect each week and a few times it helped me feel very normal! :) I also liked that it told me each week about how big the baby is. Good things to think about & ask the doctor about, too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shini | 5/15/2011

    " This came handy for me 7years ago....one of the books i love most....so when i saw the reviews cudnt help to say this book was wonderful n helped me understand those terms n stuffs in simple terms "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie B | 4/10/2011

    " As in all of the pregnancy books, I skipped some parts. This was my favorite that I read, less alarming and less extreme than "what to expect when you're expecting". I read it in spurts rather than in one sitting, so it wasn't information overload. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trish | 3/28/2011

    " I really like this book. I didn't want to read any baby books but this is about you being pregnant and what you might go through. Also it has pictures of what the baby looks like week by week. This is not a preachy book and that's why I love it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Meg | 12/6/2010

    " I found that I got more info from babycentre.ca
    "

    " As in all of the pregnancy books, I skipped some parts. This was my favorite that I read, less alarming and less extreme than "what to expect when you're expecting". I read it in spurts rather than in one sitting, so it wasn't information overload. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi | 9/14/2010

    " I have read this with the last 2 pregnancies. It is interesting and just a refresher for me by now. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 9/7/2010

    " I liked this better than "What to expect when you are expecting", however, I found the information to be a little too outdated. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Allison | 7/15/2010

    " It was fine. It seemed to be heavy on the Standard American medical way to manage pregnancy and birth and light on your baby's growth and development. The opposite of what I was looking for in a pregnancy book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristen | 7/4/2010

    " This was much better than What To Expect When You're Expecting because of the layout. It gave me an idea of the size and developmental progress of the baby on a weekly basis instead of a monthly basis like in WTE. It was very informative and great for first time moms. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 6/4/2010

    " Full of great info, and not as paranoia-inducing as some books can be. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashley | 4/26/2010

    " I generally hate books that tell you what you are "supposed" to be experiencing, but this one was really good. I liked the week-by-week development of the baby and the things the mother may be going through too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lorna Doone | 3/23/2010

    " I enjoy the way this book is broken down more than What to Expect. A good choice, in my opinion. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bethany | 2/21/2010

    " Liked it more than what to expect when you are expecting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsay | 2/15/2010

    " This was my favorite pregnancy book by far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 2/11/2010

    " I liked reading this book more than any otherse while pregnant to give me a real sense of what was going on and what to expect. "
