Build parenting skills with:
Insights and guidance

A focus on your partner

A standout among dad books, this guide includes lists of everyday objectives, as well as big-picture goals to help you think ahead, so you can be an excellent parent and partner.
“While nothing can truly prepare a man for fatherhood, this book comes pretty darn close. Part handbook, part handholding, Adrian’s words will comfort and prepare even the most terrified dads-to-be. Your partners will thank you, I promise!”―Jill Smokler, founder of Scary Mommy
“We’re Pregnant delivers the right balance of clinical information and ways to support expecting moms, all while speaking to what men need to hear in a way that will make sense to them and their roles as fathers. Writing and coaching as a once clueless and misguided first-time dad, Adrian clearly understands the challenges ahead and makes it his mission to get first-time dads to pay attention, and most importantly to understand what it means to provide support.”―Heather B. Armstrong, creator of dooce®
"When my wife was expecting for the first time, I had little to no clue what to do. I learned an incredible amount from my wife (she already had 50 nieces and nephews) and her doctor, but I wish there would've been a book out there that could have given me the knowledge and encouragement to better connect with her during pregnancy. Now that book has arrived. <emWe're Pregnant! has you covered, guys. Just do it. And good luck!"—Tom Riles, founder of Life of Dad--This text refers to the paperback edition.

BEST PART: By far, what my husband and I love most about this book is that it doesn't have a sexist overtone. It's not obnoxiously stereotypical like other "dad-to-be" books in that it doesn't assume that every man is a slack-jaw, knuckle-dragging idiot. It's smart and witty. The tone is generally, "Look, here's what's going on and why. It's going to be scary and fun and you'll do great. Just step up, dude." Highly recommended!

Speaking of which - there is absolutely no mention of the birth itself??? You have a chapter discussing week 40+ and then it skips straight to the postnatal phase!
The good parts: it provided useful info on what challenge’s the woman can expect various stages and how the man can help.
Setting the above mentioned frustrations aside, the book is ultimately lacking in any real advice. It provides easy to read and digest info that helps you follow the babys growth week by week. However, if this is the only literature you absorb during the pregancy, you will find yourself largely unprepared at each key milestone.
In short, this is a book for Americans who enjoy a "traditional" family dynamic and want to say they have read a baby book without actually taking a leading role in the pregancy.
As a side note, If you are from the UK, I suggest buying a book written closer to home. I recommend Rob Kemp's "The Expectant Dad's Survival Guide".
