Just hours before delivering her daughter Emma, Heidi delivered the proposal for a pregnancy guide that would help other expectant parents sleep better at night. She was a mom on a mission - a mission that was only getting started. Dubbed the pregnancy bible, What to Expect When You’re Expecting has more than 19 million copies in print

By What to expect when your expexpting, August 1, 2019 Verified Purchase. I needed an updated version to use especially with all the changes there are now. This book should not be used as a substitute for a doctor but it's terrific when your doctor refers to something and you can reference it in the book. million copies in print, What to Expect When You re Expecting is read by 93% of women who read a pregnancy book and was named one of the Most Influential Books of the Last 25 Years by USA Today. I purchased this book because it’s well-known. Admittedly, I felt like it was one of those books every expecting mother should read and I didn’t investigate the type of content that would be covered. What to Expect When You're Expecting by Heidi Murkoff and Sharon Mazel - Paperback. I found very little useful information in the book and certainly nothing was covered that wasn’t discussed in every app out there.

Announcing a brand new, cover-to-cover revision of America's pregnancy bible. What to Expect When You're Expecting is a perennial New York Times bestseller and one of USA Today's 25 most influential books of the past 25 years. It's read by more than 90% of pregnant women who read a pregnancy book--the most iconic, must-have book for parents-to-be, with over 14.5 million copies in print.

Now comes the Fourth Edition, a new book for a new generation of expectant moms--featuring a new look, a fresh perspective, and a friendlier-than-ever voice. It's filled with the most up-to-date information reflecting not only what's new in pregnancy, but what's relevant to pregnant women. Heidi Murkoff has rewritten every section of the book, answering dozens of new questions and including loads of new asked-for material, such as a detailed week-by-week fetal development section in each of the monthly chapters, an expanded chapter on pre-conception, and a brand new one on carrying multiples. More comprehensive, reassuring, and empathetic than ever, the Fourth Edition incorporates the most recent developments in obstetrics and addresses the most current lifestyle trends (from tattooing and belly piercing to Botox and aromatherapy). There's more than ever on pregnancy matters practical (including an expanded section on workplace concerns), physical (with more symptoms, more solutions), emotional (more advice on riding the mood roller coaster), nutritional (from low-carb to vegan, from junk food–dependent to caffeine-addicted), and sexual (what's hot and what's not in pregnant lovemaking), as well as much more support for that very important partner in parenting, the dad-to-be.

Overflowing with tips, helpful hints, and humor (a pregnant woman's best friend), this new edition is more accessible and easier to use than ever before. It's everything parents-to-be have come to expect from What to Expect... only better.

Be careful when ordering that you get the right edition. The first time I ordered, they sent the UK edition. It isn’t labeled at all, you just start reading and notice that they talk about different healthcare issues and use a lot of different British slang. Reordered and got the correct edition. Frustrating though. See picture for different versions. UK is on the left.

I bought this book when I found out I was pregnant based off of my doctors recommendations. It definitely has a lot of useful information, however, the website is very similar. If you sign up for their emails, or I'm sure just browse the site, the info is exactly what you're reading in the book. If you wanted to not spend the money on the book, I would just just check out the website or sign up for the emails if you want the info on a weekly basis. If you want the info right at your fingertips in book form, then this is for you.

I purchased this book because it’s well-known. Admittedly, I felt like it was one of those books every expecting mother should read and I didn’t investigate the type of content that would be covered. I found very little useful information in the book and certainly nothing was covered that wasn’t discussed in every app out there. I also found it annoying that there were sections on HIV, diabetes (gestational and non), etc—these topics do not pertain to the general population and those that do need information about these topics need an entire book and close monitoring by a professional to be at all prepared for pregnancy with those conditions. It felt like fluff to bulk up the book as nearly no reader could benefit from the included information, even if they had the conditions. Furthermore, the writing style is a little too cliche, filled with puns and childish humor. Just because you’re an expecting mother doesn’t mean you now talk and think like a child. The target audience feels like expecting teenagers, not expecting adults. Finally, there are a few areas of misinformation and, when I read them, it discredited the whole book. For example, page 155 under the Manicure and pedicure section it discusses cutting calluses and notes, “...(never mind the fact that the more you cut calluses, the more they grow back).” This is completely untrue and is written in as FACT! I won’t get into detail about how calluses form, but they don’t form because they’re cut away. They form as a result of friction or overloading caused by a biomechanical or musculoskeletal factor. I almost quit reading after that point and once I got to the end, I wished I would have.

I wish I have had this book when I had my first child (18 years ago!). Lots and lots of very useful information, specially for those mommies (like me) that are a bit apprehensive or anxious and get easily concerned. The information is presented very thoroughly, yet in a way that is very warm and sympathetic. The app is a very nice complement for the book, as you can get videos, picture, forums, etc. that add to the reading.
My husband really LOVES this book, and he says it has been very helpful for understanding all the changes (and challenges) that I'm going through. He also loves to to learn week by week how our baby is growing and what to expect for that week. Absolutely recommended for all the moms and dads to be!!!

Husband and I love to read this together, as we feel it gives us a nice heads up on what to expect week to week. The Q&A part is also great, as there are many questions on there that we can relate with, and we get giggles out of some of the Dad components, which are really a nice add-on and make this book feel like its made for all participating members. Pregnancy really is wonderful thing, but there are so many unexpected and unknown components to it, it can get really intimidating and scary. Reading what others are going thru or have done thru is really comforting, and it helps us get our questions ready for our monthly doctors visit (there are so many things you don't even think about asking!). Its also been great to truly have a reference guide on what to expect, and what tests are coming up, so when they do happen, we are better prepared and can get to the core questions answered by our OBGYN. Recommend this to all expecting families, it has been really helpful for ours.

I found this book to be very informative. I am entering my third trimester and it has been pretty spot on with everything. It's an easy read and I always look forward to reading what is coming next. I highly recommend this book for new mamas. There is A LOT of information in here but I am the type of person who wants all the details so it worked for me. I highly recommend this book!

Love! This book contained so much valuable information. My doctor kept saying everything was fine & I didn’t need to do anything but after missing out on some testing during the first trimester I decided to read ahead in the book. Thanks to it I was able to go into my appointments well informed and able to ask for certain tests with enough time to complete them. This is a must for any pregnant woman. I’ve already purchased the What To Expect The First Year & cannot wait to read it!
Bought this for my son and his girlfriend to read together as they take the journey into parenthood together. I read an earlier version 23 years ago, and this version is proving to be as helpful and interesting to expecting parents as the older one was to me. As I watch them reading together, I am struck by how this book helps to foster an immediate connection for both of them to their developing baby. Very cool when a book can provide important information and evoke an emotional response.
