DH has asked me if I will get him a book all about pregnancy, but considering the last time I bought one was 11 years ago I'm pretty sure there are heaps more options out there.

Also, I have a 10 year old DD who would also like either a book or an app that she can follow along on.  I have downloaded a couple, but they are a bit adult for her.  Has anyone come across anything that I can look at for her?

Thanks

The (free!) app will tell dd what's happening at ur particular gestation week by week with a little picture. That's probably all she needs.
As for dh there's the pregnancy bible u can get from bigw. Pretty thick but goes thru everything. Otherwise google lol all the info he will ever want/need to know is online

I bought DH "So You're Going to be a Dad" and he really enjoyed it!  Apparently really easy to read and understand and light hearted.

My friend bought himself that one - he really enjoyed it.  He also read all the other non-male-specific ones too though (likes to be informed that lad)
