I'd like to buy a book that gives good explanations and possibly pictures week-by-week of what is happening with the baby. I think my 3.5 yr. old son would enjoy that. Can anyone recommend something?<br><br>
We have the free book from the Mayo Clinic (via state farm)... I'll go find the link if you'd like. Anyway, it has lots of pictures.<br><br>
But, mostly, I don't look at it until I have some sort of ailment, and I want know if I should call my m/w.
<span style="text-decoration:underline;">From Conception to Birth</span> is an amazing book! it has real photos at each stage in the womb. everytime I look at it I cry though.lol. it's a beautiful book! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I also like a book called <span style="text-decoration:underline;">The Pregnancy Journal</span> it has day by day accounts of what is going on with your baby (at getstational age!) and a place to write.<br><br>
Theres also<span style="text-decoration:underline;">Your Pregnancy Week by Week</span>, this is probably the easiest to find too but more mainstream.
I really like Ina May Gaskin's <span style="text-decoration:underline;">Spiritual Midwifery</span>, as a general reference... Your DS might like the pictures of hippy mommas and daddies with their babies, too!
btw I wanted to add you can find some great kids books here about pregnancy<br><a href="http://www.1cascade.com/bookstore_products/for_children/" target="_blank">http://www.1cascade.com/bookstore_pr.../for_children/</a>
