What to Expect When You’re Expecting by Heidi Murkoff is a must read! It is full of details and valuable insight. Doctors may not tell you everything about what to expect and prepare for, so we should research and gather information on our own. This one book itself serves as a go to guide. It was very helpful for me so I was thrilled when I also came across other books such as What to Expect The First Year and What to Expect The Second Year: From 12 to 24 months.
