I don't think your DP would be offended if you bought him the book or DVD - the book has sections for Mums and Dads, and it's pretty funny. You could get the DVD and watch it together - make some popcorn and turn it into a date night!!
There's so much information here for you - hopefully it is not overwhelming! But it is all good info and I'm reading along nodding and smiling.

That your feet can grow! Before my first pregnancy I was a size 6.5, but gradually I've inched up to a 7.5-8.

Yeah I thought my df would be bad in labour. But with both kids he gets this amazing glow, he looks at me like I'm super woman. He did get a bit overly concerned and irritating. Like asking me if I needed anything mid-contraction! ARGH! Don't talk to me!!! Or asking me whats wrong if I made a slightly different noise. But once we were into the swing of things he says all the right thing and I'm pretty sure the awe in his eyes is him thinking no way would he trade places with me. lol.

I can relate to so many of these posts! And have a laugh about it now! So don't let these things scare you!
Each pregnancy is sooo different as is every baby, my first bub was almost have the size of my second, yet the second was way easier!
-I was surprised by my water not breaking just slowly dripping
-delivery is very messy
-breast feeding -for me was so hard, if you need to bottle feed your not a bad mum! (when you become a mum you'll get this magic power where you find way to blame yourself for everything!)
-advice is thrown at u from all angles- it will probably be upsetting
-bonding takes time
- no everything does not " just come naturally" and that's ok
-it's ok to cry, and to ask for help, with my second one I asked visitors to sit with bub while I had a shower, if it was one of those days, ppl especially mums will understand!
-let you birth plan. be that you'll take things as come!
-oh and during labour take all the drugs you want

Ive only had a c section so thats all i can comment on. Im 24 weeks now with my 3rd baby and reading to refresh my memory.
Firstly, getting up after c section was hard, I fainted on my first attempt
The first Poo after is scary too, it hurts to sneeze, cough and laugh hard. The nurses will ask you daily if you have opened your bowels yet.
Breast feeding is hard like the others have said but just ask for help, it took me 7 weeks to establish feeding my twins with nipple shilds and nipple thrush, mastitis and supply issues and well everything really but we got there in the end.
You uterus contracts for weeks after the birth every time you breastfeed. My bleeding had stopped but i bled when I fed from the contractions. (and i gained weight breast feeding )
My boobs started leaking before I had the babies. At birth class (31 weeks) we were practicing feeding by holding a fake baby and at the end of the class my boobs has leaked thru my bra, tshirt and jumper
