    Pregnancy book, which one's better?

    Hello gals,
    I'm looking for a good book to guide me thru my pragnancy, and i'm a first timer. So please give me some advice....

    1) Mayo Clinic Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy
    2) The Girlfriend's Guide to Pregnancy
    3) The Pregnancy Bible

    I've research these 3 in amazon, and they're the top 3 i'll most likely get.
    Thanks for your help =)

    Out of those 3 I have only read the girlfriends guide to pregnancy and it is more of a humor book than anything. The best book I have read is

    pREGNANCY CHILDBIRTH AND THE nEWBORN

    by penny simkin,

    who is a very well know north american prenatal expert. This book is especially good if you are looking for labor information. I bought a lot of books on pregnancy, but really this is the only one that was actually useful.

    I had the 'Rough Guide to pregnancy', which is written by a UK author and therefore is a bit UK centric, but good nevertheless. It combines humour (in the form of a week-by-week diary) and good advice (also in a week-by-week basis). I would say you could have mine, but for a few more weeks I'm still referring to it.

    amongst the 3 you have there, i would recommend the Mayo Clinic guide. it's quite matter of fact & informative. i read like 5 of the most popular pregnancy books, hate to say it, but i find "what to expect" the most comprehensive.
