Updated version of pregnancy advice book

I think every pregnant woman has a copy of What to Expect When You're Expecting on her bookshelf. She's either bought her own copy or borrowed a friend's well-worn edition. I read it when I was in my 20s and pregnant with baby #1. And I glanced through it again when I found out I was pregnant again at 41--once the shock and morning sickness abated.

Heidi Murkhoff's well-respected book has more than 14 million copies in print--and a brand new 4th edition that is a cover-to-cover revision of the book. There's a lot more information in the book:

  • a detailed week-by-week account of your baby's development
  • more pregnancy symptoms and even more practical solutions
  • a new section on pregnancy beauty - which treatments are safe and which aren't
  • An expanded section on working during pregnancy

Murkhoff also has a Web site that's been around for three years: the site, you can go to Ask Heidi and get answers to your pregnancy-related questions. Recent questions dealt with sleeping positions during pregnancy, anemia during pregnancy, and minimizing morning sickness.

Other areas allow members to create blogs, videos, or connect with other moms through message boards. Murkhoff has her own blog where you can keep on her activities surrounding the release of the newest edition of her book.
