We bought this book for our 5 year old. Every night she loves to see what her little sister looks like, even if she is still in mommy's tummy! Of course there are some things that we skip over. Would be great for a first time mom also, to get to know her new little one.
I think this book is pretty good. The informaion presented is different from what you get in the 'what to expect' pregnancy books. The pictures, however, make me worry. I just somehow got the idea that maybe some of the pictures where taken of babies who were stillborn, or worse. As a person who is normally very sensitive to these types of things, being preganat, hormonal, and overly emotional, I can't look at the pictures when I read this book. Maybe I'm all wrong, and there is nothing to worry about, but still...
This book is really just ok - I liked the Your Pregnancy Week by Week book much better...better information and quality. This book is actually spiral bound and just seems cheap.
I have loved this book for the last 3 of my kids. When it first came out, there was NOTHING like it. I was tired of looking at cartoon drawings by the month, I wanted to peek in today! There is a lot of repetition of photos, but for 6-10 years ago, it was groundbreaking. The new imaging techniques beg for a revision, and I'd love to see one for other reasons too. There's a little sketchy science within, not much critical review, but that's just me. I mostly loved/love it because I don't have to go a single day without something new to read about the baby within. The commentary space acts like a journal, and while I didn't write much, I did put in the dates for development, so I have 3 sets in there now. It's cute that way. My book is crinkled and scarred like a well loved cookbook. I should have contacted the author while I lived in Vermont. (But I wasn't pregnant then, and didn't realize that's where he was from!) If you're hungry for information, this should be added to your collection, and it's SO reusable! It's spiral binding and informal format make it approachable even if you're feeling crappy and resentful about the ever growing belly. You don't have to feel 'super duper' to want to figure out why you feel like crap today. A too glossy coffee table tome might make me avoid it, sometimes. I'm not one to say, "I love being pregnant." But, I love babies, and sometimes I need an excuse to bond with the belly. (er, baby) I can relate to some of the criticisms leveled, but, we all have more than one pregnancy book, right? Does any ONE of them cover it all?
The Sinners from Mitar
I bought LOTS (over 20) of books when I found out I was pregnant with our first. This was one of them and by far my favorite. It has a spot on each page to write when this occurs for you- like a calendar. It is even better to refer back to with your next child. As you can compair the two and how things changed for you, how you felt. I loved it. Has a bit of info for each day. It got daddy excited too. I totally recommend this book. Very educational as well. Lots of nice photos.
I gave this book to my wife when we found out she was pregnant. It enabled us to follow along each day with the changes that were occurring in our new baby. The book shows a picture of what she looked like, what physical changes were taking place and what she could do. There really is no other book like this. We really felt connected to our unborn child earlier.
