    Pregnancy Books!

    Hi everyone, I am very newly pregnant (due in June 2011) and am wondering what books you might recommend for a first timer, preferably beyond What to Expect...

    Also any good ones for the dads? I've seen some really jokey ones on Amazon, but I don't think they're really my DH's style.

    Thanks!

    P.S. We're both kind of crunchy, so the more emphasis on "natural" the better!

    Skinny Bitches Bun in the Oven will scare the sh*t out of you, but I wish I had at least been better informed about the topics they cover so I could have made more knowledgable decisions when I was pg.
