There are so many different pregnancy books out there to choose from. As a mom, I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed reading the week by week format books, with updates of all the changes happening both to the baby and to my own body. As an expectant mother, it’s only natural to want to read as much information as possible before the baby arrives!
With all the choices of reading material out there, let me be honest for a minute and tell you that although a week by week pregnancy book might be a bestseller, it doesn’t mean it’s all that good. To help you wade through all the selection, here are my top picks for the best pregnancy books with week by week updates!
