5.0 out of 5 stars Packed with information - recommended 27 Sep 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I'm expecting my first baby and bought the ever-popular 'What to Expect When You're Expecting', which I found quite informative. However, I was looking for a book that went into a bit more detail and was recommended the 'Day by Day Pregnancy Book' by my consultant ObGyn who is a contributing author. I absolutely adore this book. It has weekly diagrams and photos of the baby's development as well as information and advice from pre-conception through to the first days with the baby. Strongly recommended for anyone looking for a comprehensive guide.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bitesize chunks but some inaccuracies 5 Jun 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Having harassed my husband with information weekly ("did you know that this week the baby will start doing x, y, z"), when I saw a book that promised to give me an update every single day, I was sold!

It has been really nice to sit down and read this together every day, and because it is in such small chunks, just a page a day, I think you are far more likely to read this all the way through than you would a book with a more conventional format- thrilled as my husband is about the baby I think this day-by-day set up is the only way I could have got him to read about the pregnancy.

However, naturally because of this layout, not all the information under a specific day will be applicable to you, eg there are bits on twins scattered through the book, they have put info on sun care under 14 weeks of pregnancy if I recall rightly, which of course, will not coincide with summer for many women at this stage of pregnancy etc etc...obviously you just ignore the bits that don't apply, but on a couple of occasions this has meant that there hasn't been much under that specific day that was relevant to us.

My main bug-bear is that the book has some inaccuracies, and even contradicts itself a few times- for example, on the 7th day after birth they talk about the heel prick test, and say that it has to be done between days 5 and 7....this isn't true! I'm a midwife, and it is done between days 5 and 8! Not a massive thing, but if a couple had their home visit for this test put off until day 8 it could cause them some worry thinking it would be too late.

5.0 out of 5 stars A daily ritual 28 April 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The authors struggle for things to right some days, and end up repeating themselves, but it has been nice reading this to the bump on a nightly basis, and is very insightful in the early stages when the baby is developing so quickly!

While it's focused on pregnancy, there is some useful guidance for when the baby arrives. There are also the occasional bits of insight for expectant dads, and for those expecting twins. But if you are expecting twins I would recommend getting a specialist book, given the differences in development pace, and size etc.

This was very helpful. It was good to have something to look at each day. With some handy tips and thoughts. It also has a helpful guide to birth and the first few weeks at the back which was helpful. Also helped hubby feel a bit more engaged, especially as he couldn't come to all anti-natal appointments. The pictures of growing baby are lovely. Helped make it all seem a bit more real.

Good guide although as it was written some time ago some of the infoprmation will not be factually correct as things change over time. Contains some very useful inofrmation and has good amount of diagrams and photos. brought this for my daughter and she loves it and has found it really useful to refer to/keep up with what baby is doing while he is growing. Would recommend.
