I know it has been asked so many times so im sorry for asking about it again! Always thought id get What to Expect but now not so sure after hearing it gives nearly too much info. Was looking at Your Pregnancy Bible but not sure if its from irish point of view? was also lookin at Miriam Stopparts Conception, pregnancy and birth but its brittish. Not sure if this matters but would love some advice. also want one with a week by week update and lots of pics!! not asking for much! :o0 Thanks in advance and hope you all doing well. :wv

I like the weekly updates and pics in my pregnancy bible. basically, with any of the non-Irish books you just have to ignore all the medical check up and 'at this month's appointment....' stuff!! I love the ruler running down the side of the page of the rough guide to pregnancy, that book spends more time on my tummy than in my hand, but there are no pics at all ;o(

Thanks milis, Is 'My pregnancy bible' different than 'Your pregnancy Bible'? saw 2 different books with those names but look more or less the same?

I have the same book as Milis, I have found it brilliant, especially the week-by-week update of how baby is developing & the picture each week. There's also a couple of handy chapters at the back for when the baby arrives, ie step by step photos of how to bath a baby, how to top & tail, dressing a baby, nappy changing etc (for total beginners like me!!).
