I used to be a L&D nurse, and loved the pregnancy week by week book I used to have.  I forget the author’s name, but it was really neat.

If you want to breastfeed, the book “So that’s what they are for!” book was a great read.  It was informative, but written so you wouldn’t be overwhelmed.

I also love anything by Dr. Sears.

“What to expect when you’re expecting” covers sooo much info!!

Also, for fun and for a good laugh you should read Jenny McCarthy Belly Laughs. haha..

I haven’t read it yet, but there is also a book called “What to Expect Before You’re Expecting” which might be better than “What to Expect When You’re Expecting.”  You can go to Amazon and look up several pre-conception books.

I would suggest looking at a library too.   I got some of mine there.   I found the What to Expect books to be too vague and they seemed a bit alarmist.

I just finished “What To Expect BEFORE You’re Expecting”… Although I knew most of the information in there (thanks to being a crazy researcher about EVERYTHING!) there was a lot of helpful info. I’d definitely pick it up!

Of course, I also recommend the famous “Taking Charge Of Your Fertility”

I read what to expect before you are expecting, a girlfriends guide to pregnancy, getting pregnant, tcoyf, and your fertility signs.

These are all great suggestions, but I wanted to say to check your local Goodwill for any books that might be helpful.  I got “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” and “What to Expect: The First Year” for 3.00 TOTAL.  Mine had a huge section on TTC/Pregnancy/Parenting, so it’s definitely worth checking out.

Hey there. I am in your same boat except that i have a longer wait (we start trying next spring. I have been doing alot of research though and here asre the books i love:

What to Expect BEFORE your expecting

Taking Charge of Your Fertility

Before Your Pregnancy: a 90 day guide to a healthy conception

A Girlfriend’s Guide to Pregnancy (stuff they don’t tell you in depth. pretty funny and informrative)

The Yummy Mummy Manifesto (amazing for preggo style and flair).

 

I love all these. I especially like the preconception books because there are a lot of things that you don’t realize you could be doing sooner, before you start the baby dance. Good luck!
