I bought this book as my husband and I are thinking of trying for a baby soon. Feeling nervous about it, this book answered a lot of my questions. It is written with good humour, and is honest and sometimes quite blunt! It doesn't use much medical jargon (although it often puts them in brackets), and as a result it's easy to read. Like most other reviewers of the book, I would agree that whilst this book is great, you will need a more indepth book as well, such as "Your Pregnancy Bible" by Anne Deans, which is more in depth. With regards to previous reviews saying that the author has an irresponsible attitute toward food, I think it is fairly obvious that she is joking - some of this food related stuff is in the diary sections, and she talks about eating a lot of magnums! I think she's being honest and saying that you might just feel rather hungry during your pregnancy. She also talks about not eating junk food as well, which I think is pretty responsible. All in all, there is a LOT of good information in this book - getting pregnant, nutrients / what not to eat, the size of the foetus / unborn baby each week, pain relief in labour, what to really expect in labour, the birth itself, c-sections, stretch marks, relationships, sex, breastfeeding....and loads more. It's also entertaining, honest, and like having a chat with a pregnant friend!! 5/5!
