5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this book - it will keep you sane!, 30 Aug. 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: The Rough Guide to Pregnancy and Birth (Paperback)
I am 38 weeks pregnant. So far I have bought 3 'pregnancy' books, 2 'baby' books and a number of magazines. This book is the voice of reason amongst the preaching and/or neuroses of all the others. It has all the medical information anyone could want in a pregnancy book, but it also makes you realise how normal all the other little complaints are. The diary section (a couple of pages per week of pregnancy) describes how I have felt physically and emotionally to within a week or two. This not only makes me feel sane, but has given me a way to explain things to my husband and I am sure it has helped him understand better how I feel. We have both read large sections of it just for the pleasure of reading it and find ourselves reading bits aloud to each other - and we are not the sort of couple to read bits of baby books at each other. About the only thing that stops you reading is the pain in your side from laughing so hard. I would recommend it to anyone even considering getting pregnant. The best news now is I have just discovered she's written a 'baby' book as-well, so I'm ordering that before it's out of stock.
