Item Description...
Because of the rapid rate of change to both mother and baby, doctors refer to a pregnancy in increments of weeks, not months or even trimesters; expectant mothers look for changes and compare the details of their pregnancies based on the same weekly schedule. The best-selling Your Pregnancy Week by Week doles out focused information in this medically appropriate way, making it the most mom-recommended pregnancy guide on the market.Now carefully brought up-to-date, this expanded Fifth Edition will also be the most medically current and comprehensive pregnancy guide available. Always reliable and now re-designed to be even more accessible, weekly chapters include illustrations, descriptions of baby's growth and developmental milestones, information about a mother's average weight gain and what she might be feeling or becoming aware of, and the medical testing that corresponds to the week in question. New features include:* Information on cutting edge obstetric technologies-from 3D ultrasound to pre-natal genetic testing* The very latest diet, nutritional and fitness recommendations for expectant mothers* A new chapter devoted to overdue (post-term) pregnancies* An expanded 15-page glossary of pregnancy and childbirth terms* A handy Due Date Prediction Calendar

Pregnancy should be a time of wonder and hope, but these days, it's associated more often with paranoia. Dr. Glade Curtis is keenly aware of the anxieties heaped upon expectant women: he has written several pregnancy-related books. So while he covers pretty much any topic that an expectant mom might be concerned about, he does not overload the reader with extraneous information or horror stories that can be found in that other best-selling pregnancy guide. In this completely revised and updated edition, Curtis describes the physical developments from weeks 1 through 40--or 41 or 42!--such as the size and weight of the baby, emotional changes in the mother, typical medical tests offered, and nutritional requirements. (The iron found in prenatal vitamins may exacerbate morning sickness, he writes, because iron supplementation is usually not needed until the final trimester.) It is too bad that Dr. Curtis does not recommend more alternative-medicine approaches for treating common pregnancy discomforts. In the chapter covering Week 8, he rightly describes sciatic-nerve pain as excruciating, but does not advise yoga or chiropractic treatments for its relief. However, he *is* hip to the use of doulas, or labor coaches, he encourages breastfeeding, and includes numerous tips for making your partner feel included in what should be a thrilling experience for you both. --Erica Jorgensen

Reviews - What do our customers think?
worry your way through pregnancy  Jun 9, 2008
I bought this book because it was written by a doctor and was recommended to me but I am very unhappy with this purchase. The vast majority of the content of the book is negative in nature. From STDs, to ectopic pregnancies and on to every birth defect imaginable, this book spends most of it's space on the problems you could face. The first couple of paragraphs of each chapter discuss the growing baby and then it launches in to new problems for each week and not even in a helpful, precautionary way. Stay away from this book! Not good for nervous, hormone-filled pregnant women!!!
Highly Informative  Jun 5, 2008
There are many critics of this book who claim that it is worries expectant mothers unnecessarily. However, I feel that it is necessary to understand the risks of pregnancy, as well as how to take care of the needs of an expectant mother. It is foolish to ignore the statistics, no matter how scary they can be because bad things do happen, and it is wise to be prepared.

I would definitely recommend this book to all expectant fathers and mothers.
Excelent Book on Pregnancy.....  May 22, 2008
This is an excellent, informative book, well written and organized, which I have found helpful at answering a lot of my concerns and questions.
Buy the book!
Very informative!  May 15, 2008
I read this book during my last pregnancy. I liked the format - weekly updates on mom and baby and it was just full of information, including sketches of the growing baby :) Highly recommend.
Good but unnerving  May 8, 2008
This book had a lot of information; however, topics such as miscarriage, different deformities or birth defects, and other pregnancy problems were in every chapter- I would have preferred them to all be in one section. As a first time mom, it was unnerving to constantly see what "could go wrong" every time I read another chapter. Also, there weren't really any pictures.
