I bought a couple of pregnancy books and I must say this book is just great! For sure it is not a medical encyclopedia (and does not mean to be) but I could not put it down because it was written so well and was so fun and informative! In those first months when you don't yet talk to anyone about your preganncy, this is a lifesaver as it really feels it is your girlfriends talking to you! It also tells you all sorts of things no doctor would unless you asked (and if it is your first pregnancy you do not).
A must have if you wish to approach pregnancy in a fun manner :-)
I will for sure buy it as a gift for any girlfriends who are pregnant!

This is an OK book, with interesting tips and humor that I not always appreciated. I somehow get the feeling this is a book more suitable for older pregnant ladies, since I have not been able to connect and identify myself with many of the situations described by the author. The part about exercise is very biased and honestly it does a deservice in terms of healthy habits. The attitude regarding husbands/partners was also not appreciated. Anyways, not my cup of tea, but certainly appeals to other audiences since it remains a best-selling book...
