Pregnancy Books - Books to Read During Pregnancy

You have just found out that you are pregnant. Pretty soon you are receiving lots of advice from friends, relatives and just about everyone else who knows you are pregnant. However, not all of the well intentioned advice maybe factually correct and reliable. For more reliable resources you can turn to doctors, pregnancy related websites and pregnancy books. If you are like me, nothing beats the age-old book for easy accessibility and usage. There are a wide variety of them to choose from. Most of them are authored by medical experts or experienced mothers.

So, what are you waiting for? Take your purse and step out to your nearest book store. Many leading book stores such as Odyssey, Landmark, Higginbothams have books and CD-ROMs sorted by category. This makes it easy for you to walk into their Pregnancy section and check out what they have to offer. If they do not have a particular book that you are looking for, they may place an order for you. You may also visit websites such as Amazon, Flipkart etc and check out their collection. Some websites also have e-books that you can download and read whenever you wish to. Some books come along with CDs that have more illustrations about the topics covered in the books.

Find your head reeling with the number of guides on the rack in your book store? Feeling lost and confused about making a selection? Do not fret, worry or panic. Allow us to help you make a choice by highlighting a few books for you to get started with right away.

Now that you're eating for two, your primary concern should be maintaining a nutritious meal plan that benefits both you and your baby.How Much is Too Much?You may be wondering, now that you're pregnant, if you should literally eat enough for two.
