have any of you invested in them? do you find them useful?

I got two. one is like a medical text book, i know the ins and outs of pregnancy and birth off by heart. its by Dr Miriam Stoppard and its fantastic, puts my mind at ease every time.

but i also wanted something thats from a moms perspective and wasnt so clinical. i got What to Expect when Expecting. i like it, its american tho so alot of it doesnt apply to me, but it is comforting and they have a chapter on each month which i look forward to reading.

my dh has his own one for daddies.

I enjoyed reading about labour so early on. its scary and takes a while to get your head around it, so i feel almost ready now. plus i keep changing my mind about pain relief, so knowing exactly whats happening allows me make an educated decision.

plus i like having them for reference.

I haven't invested in baby books. I don't want to spend the money when I can find the information on the Internet. My Mom is also the next best thing to a text book. She's not afraid to sugar coat anything and tells me on a daily basis what I should expect!
