Review

Announcing a brand new, cover-to-cover revision of America''s pregnancy bible. What to Expect When You''re Expecting is a perennial New York Times bestseller and one of USA Today''s 25 most influential books of the past 25 years. It''s read by more than 90% of pregnant women who read a pregnancy book--the most iconic, must-have book for parents-to-be, with over 14.5 million copies in print.

Now comes the Fourth Edition, a new book for a new generation of expectant moms--featuring a new look, a fresh perspective, and a friendlier-than-ever voice. It''s filled with the most up-to-date information reflecting not only what''s new in pregnancy, but what''s relevant to pregnant women. Heidi Murkoff has rewritten every section of the book, answering dozens of new questions and including loads of new asked-for material, such as a detailed week-by-week fetal development section in each of the monthly chapters, an expanded chapter on pre-conception, and a brand new one on carrying multiples. More comprehensive, reassuring, and empathetic than ever, the Fourth Edition incorporates the most recent developments in obstetrics and addresses the most current lifestyle trends (from tattooing and belly piercing to Botox and aromatherapy). There''s more than ever on pregnancy matters practical (including an expanded section on workplace concerns), physical (with more symptoms, more solutions), emotional (more advice on riding the mood roller coaster), nutritional (from low-carb to vegan, from junk food–dependent to caffeine-addicted), and sexual (what''s hot and what''s not in pregnant lovemaking), as well as much more support for that very important partner in parenting, the dad-to-be.

Overflowing with tips, helpful hints, and humor (a pregnant woman''s best friend), this new edition is more accessible and easier to use than ever before. It''s everything parents-to-be have come to expect from What to Expect... only better.

An Essay from Heidi Murkoff
What to Expect started with information--or, actually, lack of information. In fact, when I found out I was expecting for the first time--I didn''t have the slightest idea of what to expect. And back then, it wasn''t as easy to find out what to expect as you''d think. I created What to Expect When You''re Expecting because I couldn''t find the answers to my questions or the reassurance for my worries that I was searching for in the pregnancy books I read (and believe me, I read plenty). I was a mom on a mission--a mission to help other moms and dads worry less and enjoy their pregnancies (and their babies, and their toddlers) more. And I''ve been on that mission ever since.

So what sent me back to recreate What to Expect--for a fourth time? Today, there''s definitely no lack of information on pregnancy. In fact there''s more information than ever before (a quick online search of pregnancy or a glance at pages and pages of pregnancy and parenting options right here on Amazon will clue you in on that). But often what''s still hard to find is the right kind of information. Information that''s accurate yet empathetic, reassuring yet realistic--that empowers you, but doesn''t overwhelm or confuse you, that guides you but doesn''t dictate to you. And it''s not just about the right information, it''s about information that''s presented in the way that''s most helpful--easy to access, easy to digest, easy to use. It''s about information that makes your pregnant life less stressful--more enjoyable, and, well, easier.

The fourth edition is a new What To Expect for a new generation of readers--you!--and I''m excited to say it''s the best What To Expect yet. It''s packed with all new information, of course (since things tend to change quickly in the baby-making and baby-delivering business--something you''re probably all too aware of already if you''ve made more than one trip to the birthing room). But it doesn''t only take into account what''s new in obstetrics and what''s new in pregnancy; it takes into account what''s relevant to pregnant women now. Lifestyle. Working. Eating on the run. Juggling the pregnant life with real life. Keeping up with relationships. Birthing options that are family friendly and pregnancy care that incorporates the best that complimentary and alternative medicine has to offer. Managing multiples (which more and more moms are carrying). Sorting out the information from the misinformation--the reality from the hype, fact from Internet legend.

The fourth edition also takes into account how you likely use books these days, so the format is even more accessible than ever. More geared to in-the-moment, find-it-in-a-flash reading.

Most important of all, the fourth edition celebrates pregnancy. I have a passion for pregnancy, and always have. I love moms, I love dads, and I love babies. But everything about this fourth edition from the happy, excited mom-to-be on the cover, proudly caressing her beautiful belly and its even more beautiful contents, to the adorable week-by-week description of the making of your baby, to the positive (yet realistic), mom-to-mom tone throughout--this fourth edition is not just an explanation of those 9 amazing (though often bewildering) months you have ahead of you. It''s a celebration of them.

What to Expect When You''re Expecting fourth edition is everything moms and dads have come to expect from What to Expect... only better. And I can''t wait to start sharing it with you.

I guess you can say--I''m a proud mama all over again.

--Heidi Murkoff
