Babby formed. Help me arm myself with knowledge.

I've looked around a bit and haven't yet found anything that fits the bill. I need recommendations for books, sites or other materials on pregnancy/ childbirth with the following features:
1. Practical, non-panicky
2. Not precious, cutesy or overly sentimental
3. Will not talk down to me or assume I read at a 4th grade level
4. Not too crunchy granola
Super extra bonus points for anything aimed at helping me stop freaking out about how my freedom, personality and body are about to be completely destroyed and I'm going to be trapped in drudgery and obligation for ever and ever.
(Yes I am the mother in this equation, and though I am currently terrified, I've mostly decided to go through with it. Haven't entirely made peace with everything yet, but I've got a while.)
