Book Review: What to Expect When You're Expecting

Love, love, love this book! If you’re bound for a nine-month “bumpy” adventure, this is truly a good read. What to Expect When You’re Expecting by Dr. Heidi Murkoff is America’s Pregnancy Bible. Now in its 4th edition, it has loads of current information for new-generation parents. Its comprehensive take on pregnancy takes its readers from preconception to post-labor (including coping with pregnancy loss) and everything in between. 

It has answered tons of my own questions…including embarrassing ones, with a medically professional, yet amusing tone. Some personal questions answered:

  •  Can I get highlights in my hair? How about my monthly wax?
  •   What’s safe when it comes to sex?
  • Can I really be this emotional?
  •  Is an epidural safe?
  •  What’s up with these skin blotches?
  •  Will my body go back to normal after delivery?

Part 5 was especially appreciated by both my husband and I. (Okay, so the part's entitled “For Dads.” Still, who was gonna stop me from reading it?) ;)

Lucky for me, my sister-in-law who’s also expecting gave this book to me as a gift. (Hint, hint, to friends and family looking for a great gift for parents-to-be.) This book’s a must-buy.

P.S. Did I mention they have website with lots of helpful tools and articles too? Here's the link:
