Would you read what to expect when your expecting?

or would it scare you of the things that are in it that they tell you can happen?

  • I bought it, I hated the book it had way too much info that just made me paranoid, I did really like the iPhone app though, and the after baby app also made by what to expect had a great thing to track diapers, feedings and vaccinations.

  • I did read it when i was expecting and it scared the hell out of me most of the stuff that was written on there. but my friend told me it doesnt always happen and not to always believe what is written.
