Thanks for list, it's always nice to get an expert opinion and seal of approval on things like these. I will be sure to file these away for a couple of years until I need them! : )

wow...you are all studied up! I read What to Expect and Pregnancy Week by Week or something like that--it was loaned by a friend. I should have read more!

i think crib notes is a cute book for new parents. it is described as 'a random reference for the modern parent' and i picked it up at paper source.
congratulations on your pregnancy!

Girlfriend's Guide was my go-to manual. I love the telling-it-like-it-is frankness of Vicky Iovine.
