Anyone got a good recommendation of a book that would help DH. He is really excited. Would love to get him a good book from the father's perspective :thnk

My DH has one at home, i'll check the name of it tonight and let you know. It's both informative and very funny.

Thanks Ochre, that would be great. Thanks a million Daisy B. Funny you should post. I was thinking about your earlier. And saying o look there's my wedding twin - wish I was where she was!! Can't wait to wish away these first few weeks - hoping and praying everything will go okay. I think I am four to five weeks. Want to get beyond 14 and relax a bit more about the whole thing. But it's sooooooooo exciting, isn't it??

Congrats on the baby wishing you a great pregnancy! I bought my DH quite a few books to try to get him more involved and would recommend 'The Blokes Guide to ..' series. He has the guide to Preganacy, Babies and Baby Gadgets and they have all gone down pretty well. Funny and accesible but will all the key info and easy to dip in and out of. We got them online from amazon and they were only a couple of pounds each. Hope that helps x

My DH got two books- one is a humorous take on pregnancy called "My Boys Can Swim"(!!!), & the other one is a bit more informative, it's called "The Expectant Father- Facts, Tips and Advice for Dads-to-Be" by Armin A. Brott & Jennifer Ash. It's quite good.
