“One of the most candid, refreshing and funny books on pregnancy that I have ever read. I laughed so hard at times that I had tears rolling down my cheeks…Humorous and candid.”
About the Author
Top customer reviews
Here, each chapter covers one aspect of pregnancy - mostly ailments! (and each has a hilarious title with a pun) eg one on morning sickness, one on bloating, another yet on baby kicks, etc. which gives a refreshing overview of what is in store for you.
It is, indeed, pretty blunt and direct but the humor makes it go down more easily! and I could totaly relate to a lot of the tpics covered and her perception.
However, it is enough to scare a sensitive future mother, and I want to point out to all pregnant women who read it : don't worry, things are not always as bad as that, there is little chance you will endure all or even most of the issues described here, for a lot of women it's down to a few specific problems - some of us don't gain much weight, others are not bloated etc. `
When I read through the book I kept thinking, "this is the worst pregnancy I ever heard of!", not to mention the hellish delivery. Chances are you will have an easier time statistically speaking!
A criticism I have is I thought the book was overpriced for its length; I read "Baby laughs" too and the same applies - if sold together they would be worth 10 dollars, but 10 dollars each is a little over the top.
I can definitely see myself reading this over and over throughout my pregnancy. I wish I could give it a better rating I love it so much!!
