This fantastic book is an absolute must for all first-time pregnant mums (and dads) as it gives you a complete picture of your pregnancy from start to finish. It is a comprehensive guide to everything that your body and your baby goes through during each week of pregnancy.
The book of course begins with what to look out for and consider when preparing for pregnancy, from health conditions to exercise and nutrition--it even deals with what the older woman should consider.
Then follows, just as the title suggests, a guide to your pregnancy week by week. Each week or chapter concentrates on the size of your growing baby, the size of you (!), changes and developments in your baby and changes that you would experience at each stage. It also concentrates on how your actions can affect your baby's development and gives you a handy tip for each step of the way.
The book gives you a focus for each stage of the pregnancy and is incredibly enjoyable to read. You come out at the end of the 40 weeks feeling well informed and prepared as it gives consideration to your worries and fears and physical state appropriate to each stage of your pregnancy. It is particularly fun to read how large your baby is at each stage--often compared to various fruit!--and what you can expect to feel at each stage. The book gives you a kind of connection with the little life that is growing inside of you. --Helen Humphrey, Editor, UKparents online --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
