Pregnant women typically fall into two categories: those who want to be informed, and those who want to be soothed. The want-to-know-everything set will be enchanted by the fifth edition of obstetrician Clark Gillespie's detailed guide to pregnancy. An erudite and humorous obstetrician? You bet! In this newly revised and updated edition of his classic, Gillespie gives the facts--all of them--in an informative and entertaining manner. Q: "What position is the best for having sexual intercourse while I am pregnant?" A: "Like riding a camel, there is no best position," Gillespie writes. If you are someone who wants an answer for every "why," who feels in control only when you have all the statistics in hand, then this book is for you. As the title indicates, Gillespie discusses the stages of pregnancy and fetal development month by month. Ultrasound photos and a few pages of personal diary questions begin and close each chapter, but much of the information slated for each month pertains to the entire pregnancy. Nutrition, maternity clothes, birth preparation, pain relief, risks from house pets, varicose veins... you name it, Gillespie delivers the details--with a great bedside manner. --Ericka LutzAbout the Author:
