Best Book for Expectant Mothers

I was given the book "What to expect when you're expecting" during my first pregnancy. I found it very informative but seven years later and second time around I'd like something different. What books did you guys really enjoy?

What can I do next?

My step mom gave me The Girlfriends Guide to Pregnancy, I loved it! It's fun to read yet still very informative.

I didn't like what to expect when you're expecting. I loved my Mayo Clinic guide to a healthy pregnancy. I loved that book.

I LOVE Baby 411 and would highly recommend that. It's super easy to navigate and find what you're looking for. We also enjoyed Baby Bargains- it's good to know what's out there and this book gives fabulous feedback and advice for shopping for baby stuff. And then there's Toddler 411, also fantastic. There is even a website that goes with this series.

I suggest Baby 411 by Denise Fields and Ari Brown M.D. Our pediatricians (NMPG) highly recommend this book. I am a second time around mom, too and enjoyed this reference for its doses of humor, concise and clear answes. The book is divided into sections (sleep,feeding,sickness,etc.) Rather than by the child's age. There is now a Toddler version available, too. Www.baby411.com
