What pregnancy books can I read that won't make me crazy?

My husband and I will begin baby making attempts in the next few months. I've never been into self-help and intend to approach pregnancy as just another stage in life, not some idealized baby obsessed utopia during which I need to document everything, take extreme precaution with safety and food, and transition my life into mommy perfection.

I've purchased the Mayo Clinic Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy, which is very straight-forward, medically accurate information. I'd like to find some book suggestions though that other Offbeat Mamas have found enjoyable and informative. — Theresa
