I've got Eating Well When You're Expecting and I really like it.

I have enjoyed Eating for Pregnancy for many years. It is a pretty good cookbook even when you are not pregnant.
It has detailed information about the nutritional content of the recipes and explains why those nutrients are important during pregnancy. Here is a link to it so you can read the description and some reviews.

Rather than buy, I would check out what is available at the Library first. That way, you have not dished out the money for one that you end up not liking very much. Sometimes local La Leche Leagues have Lending Libraries with those sorts of things. If you are not a vegetarian, I would encourage you to check out some vegetarian recipes cook books. They often have great recipes with LOADS of veggies...an important part of pregnant mom diets. Good luck!

If you are pinching pennies, the pregnancy books are ALWAYS on the shelves of used book stores. Or even craigs list. That way you can get several for the price of one new one. (I thought I had "What to eat when you're expecting" on my shelf - Id be happy to pass it along, but alas it is not there.) That made me think of the used books etc. Mikes used books in Wakefield is a nice one (near the theatre next to Starbucks) Look on line, too!
