I feel kinda lost right now, I haven't read any pregnancy books and all my info has come from friends who have talked about their pregnancies.

I know there are people who love the what to expect when expecting book but my ob told me to stay far away from it as it includes every conceivable thing & can do more worry than good. I have "Your Pregnancy week by week" written by an ob. I bought it with DS and have been re-reading it this pregnancy. I love it!

I liked it when I was pg with DS, of course that was before I'd had any losses. I read that and The Everything Book on Pregnancy, and there was another one that was kind of more like a journal. Every day there was a couple pages to read on development and such, but I can't remember what that one was called.

Have you checked out the information on our pregnancy channel yet? There is a lot of information on it, including ultrasound photos of what your baby looks like each week. Here is the link: http://www.ivillage.com/pregnancy

You can also sign up for My Pregnancy Week-by-Week: http://www.ivillage.com/my-pregnancy-week-by-week

Dustie, you should be able to have it emailed to you by signing up on the newsletter page: http://www.ivillage.com/funnels/5?vrtid=6

It's the first one listed under Pregnancy. Let me know if you don't receive it within a week after signing up. I'm not sure what day of the week they are emailed. I'm sorry I didn't include this link before, I should've have done that!

With my last pregnancy, I got what to expect at the library that way I didn't have to buy it if I didn't want to! Our library has tons of books on pregnancy - you could check that out!

I love two books by DK publishers, with lots of color photos and pictures:

I'm Pregnant (week by week) goes through PG one week at a time, very readable,

Pregnancy (day by day) goes through PG each day at a time, more detailed.

Me () -- 34 DH -- 37 Conceived DS naturally after almost 2 years TTC and one loss. Currently have been TTC #2 after 2 more years and two more losses. Recently found polyp in uterus. Scheduled for hysteroscopy and removal 6/2011..... Instead surprise
