A lighthearted, helpful, and brutally honest book from someone who understands. You'll laugh and learn about what to aid (perms, maternity clothing stores), what generally can't avoid be avoided (hemorrhoids, a tendency to worry about everything), and what not to be afraid of (if you're having amniocentesis, that big needle; turning into your mother). And if you feel as though you've embarked on a nine-month-long ride on a roller coaster, the chapter called "Pregnancy Insanity" will reassure you that you're normal.People
A laugh-out-loud primer for unseasoned moms-to-be.
