What to Expect When You're Expecting
A completely revised and updated edition of America’s pregnancy bible, the longest-running New York Times bestseller ever.

With 18.5 million copies in print, What to Expect When You’re Expecting is read by 93% of women who read a pregnancy book and was named one of the “Most Influential Books of the Last 25 Years” by USA Today.

This cover-to-cover (including the cover!) new edition is filled with must-have information, advice, insight, and tips for a new generation of moms and dads. With What to Expect’s trademark warmth, empathy, and humor, it answers every conceivable question expecting parents could have, including dozens of new ones based on the ever-changing pregnancy and birthing practices and choices they face. Advice for dads is fully integrated throughout the book. All medical coverage is completely updated, including the latest on Zika virus, prenatal screening, and the safety of medications during pregnancy, as well as a brand-new section on postpartum birth control. Current lifestyle trends are incorporated, too: juice bars, raw diets, e-cigarettes, push presents, baby bump posting, the lowdown on omega-3 fatty acids, grass-fed and organic, health food fads, and GMOs. Plus expanded coverage of IVF pregnancy, multiple pregnancies, breastfeeding while pregnant, water and home births, and cesarean trends (including VBACs and “gentle cesareans”).

What to Expect the First Year

With over 11 million copies in print, What to Expect: The First Year, now in a completely revised third edition, is the world’s best-selling, best-loved guide to the instructions that babies don’t come with, but should. And now, it’s better than ever. Every parent’s must-have/go-to is completely updated.

Keeping the trademark month-by-month format that allows parents to take the potentially overwhelming first year one step at a time, First Year is easier-to-read, faster-to-flip-through, and new-family-friendlier than ever—packed with even more practical tips, realistic advice, and relatable, accessible information than before. Illustrations are new, too.

Among the changes: Baby care fundamentals—crib and sleep safety, feeding, vitamin supplements—are revised to reflect the most recent guidelines. Breastfeeding gets more coverage, too, from getting started to keeping it going. Hot-button topics and trends are tackled: attachment parenting, sleep training, early potty learning (elimination communication), baby-led weaning, and green parenting (from cloth diapers to non-toxic furniture). An all-new chapter on buying for baby helps parents navigate through today’s dizzying gamut of baby products, nursery items, and gear. Also new: tips on preparing homemade baby food, the latest recommendations on starting solids, research on the impact of screen time (TVs, tablets, apps, computers), and “For Parents” boxes that focus on mom’s and dad’s needs. Throughout, topics are organized more intuitively than ever, for the best user experience possible.

What to Expect the Second Year: From 12 to 24 Months (What to Expect (Workman Publishing))
The essential sequel to What to Expect the First Year, with 11 million copies in print, What to Expect the Second Year picks up the action at baby’s first birthday, and takes parents through what can only be called “the wonder year”—12 jam-packed (and jam-smeared) months of memorable milestones (from first steps to first words, first scribbles to first friends), lightning-speed learning, endless explorations driven by insatiable curiosity. Not to mention a year of challenges, both for toddlers and the parents who love them, but don’t always love their behaviors (picky eating, negativity, separation anxiety, bedtime battles, biting, and tantrums).

Comprehensive, reassuring, empathetic, realistic, and practical, What to Expect the Second Year is filled with solutions, strategies, and plenty of parental pep talks. It helps parents decode the fascinating, complicated, sometimes maddening, always adorable little person last year’s baby has become.

From the first birthday to the second, this must-have book covers everything parents need to know in an easy-to-access, topic-by-topic format, with chapters on growth, feeding, sleeping, behaviors of every conceivable kind, discipline (including teaching right from wrong), and keeping a toddler healthy and safe as he or she takes on the world. There’s a developmental time line of the second year plus special “milestone” boxes throughout that help parents keep track of their toddler’s development. Thinking of traveling with tot in tow? There’s a chapter for that, too.

What to Expect Before You're Expecting
Announcing the prequel. From Heidi Murkoff, author of America's bestselling pregnancy and parenting books, comes the must-have guide every expectant couple needs before they even conceive―the first step in What to Expect: What to Expect Before You're Expecting.

An estimated 11 million couples in the U.S. are currently trying to conceive, and medical groups now recommend that all hopeful parents plan for baby-making at least three months before they begin trying. And who better to guide wanna-be moms and dads step-by-step through the preconception (and conception) process than Heidi Murkoff?

It's all here. Everything couples need to know before sperm and egg meet up. Packed with the same kind of reassuring, empathetic, and practical information and advice and tips that readers have come to expect from What to Expect, only sooner. Which baby-friendly foods to order up (say yes to yams) and which fertility-busters to avoid (see you later, saturated fat); lifestyle adjustments that you'll want to make (cut back on cocktails and caffeine) and those you can probably skip (that switch to boxers). How to pinpoint ovulation, time lovemaking, keep on-demand sex sexy, and separate conception fact (it takes the average couple up to 12 months to make a baby) from myth (position matters). Plus, when to seek help and the latest on fertility treatments―from Clomid and IVF to surrogacy and more. Complete with a fill-in fertility journal to keep track of the babymaking adventure and special tips throughout for hopeful dads. Next step? What to Expect When You’re Expecting, of course.

What to Expect: Eating Well When You're Expecting
Eating Well When You're Expecting provides moms-to-be with a realistic approach to navigating healthily and deliciously through the nine months of pregnancy—at home, in the office, over the holidays, in restaurants. Thorough chapters are devoted to nutrition, weight gain, food safety, the postpartum diet, and how to eat when trying to conceive again. And, very exciting, the book comes with 150 contemporary, tasty, and healthy recipes that feed mom and baby well, take little time to prepare, and are gentle on queasy tummies.

Eating Well comes with a light, reader-friendly tone while delivering the most up-to-date information. At the heart of the book are hundreds of pressing questions every mother-to-be has: Is it true I shouldn’t eat any food cooked with alcohol? Will the caffeine in coffee cross into my baby’s bloodstream? Help!—I’m entering my second trimester, and I’m losing weight, not gaining. Is all sushi off limits? How do I get enough calcium if I’m lactose intolerant? I keep dreaming about a hot fudge sundae—can I indulge? Guess what: The answer is yes.

Qué Puedes Esperar Cuando Estás Esperando: 4th Edition (Que Puedes Esperar) (Spanish Edition)
Esta traducción al español del libro considerado como la biblia del embarazo en Norteamérica con más 19 millones de copias impresas, What to Expect When You’re Expecting: 4th Edition, es más vital, menos formal y más sencilla de entender de manera general que cualquier otra anterior. Es un libro dirigido a padres que esperan un bebé y quienes no dominan el inglés o quienes, en un momento de estrés como este, prefieren lo que les resulta más familiar – su primer idioma.
Está repleto de información actualizada no sólo sobre lo nuevo que se sabe sobre el embarazo, pero también sobre los temas que son relevantes para las embarazadas. Heidi Murkoff ha respondido decenas de nuevas preguntas e incluido nuevos materiales requeridos por los lectores, como, por ejemplo, una sección detallada en todos los capítulos sobre cada mes del embarazo sobre el desarrollo fetal en cada una de las semanas de este, un capítulo expandido sobre la pre-concepción y uno completamente nuevo sobre embarazos múltiples. Siendo más completa, reconfortante y empática que todas las anteriores, esta edición incorpora nuevos descubrimientos en obstetricia y toca diferentes tendencias actuales (desde el tatuaje y otras modificaciones corporales hasta el Botox y la aromaterapia). Hay mucho más que antes sobre temas prácticos (incluyendo una sección aumentada sobre cuestiones relacionadas con el sitio laboral), físicos (con más síntomas y soluciones para estos), emocionales (más consejos sobre cómo navegar la montaña rusa emocional), nutricionales (desde la dieta baja en carbohidratos hasta la vegana y desde la comida chatarra hasta la adicción a la cafeína) y sexuales (lo que es excitante y lo que no lo es al hacer el amor durante el embarazo), así como mucho más apoyo para ese muy importante socio en la maternidad: el papá.

Con derroche de consejos útiles y humor (el mejor amigo de una mujer embarazada), esta nueva edición es más asequible y fácil de usar que en el pasado. Es todo lo que los padres esperan de Que puedes esperar . . . durante el embarazo, pero mucho mejor.

This Spanish-language translation of What to Expect When You're Expecting: 4th Edition, America's pregnancy bible with over 19 million copies in print, is livelier, less formal, and altogether more user-friendly than ever before. It’s a book for expectant parents who don’t speak English or who, at a stressful time, find that what's most familiar—their first language—is most welcome.
