just curious which books you got and loved or hated. i want one week by week book full of information of what's going on but am focused on having a natural birth and making informed and healthy choices throughout my pregnancy so am looking for something beyond just having the typical what to expect when you're expecting but recognize a lot of the 'green baby' books can be full of hype as 'green' is so trendy right now.
anyone have any recommendations?

Pregnancy Book-Dr Sears
Pregnancy Childbirth and the Newborn-Penny Simkin and others
After the Baby's Birth by Robin Lim. I loved this book as I learned so much about other culture's birth and postpartum traditions.
Both books have lots of good stuff that go hand in hand with my personal philosophy of birthing, parenting, health and wellness.
Livin' the good life here in Connecticut with my DH and our three fabulous boys (4/3/06, 2/4/08 and 5/20/10) Hoping to try for Sweet Baby #4 in December!
Ina May Gaskin's Guide to Childbirth was also helpful. I have Birthing from Within and plan to start reading it maybe later tonight.
