Kate Martin is pregnant, her baby sister is bridezilla, and her professional life is up in the air and life is a little crazy. This book is the story of how Kate must deal with all the stress while on the verge of welcoming her first child that she isn't quite sure she is ready for.
A lot of books share the joys of pregnancy and impending motherhood and this one felt real. I loved how honest the character Kate was about her fears and insecurities and how unsure she was about the whole becoming a mother thing. I loved that it wasn't all sunshine and rainbows and beautiful onesies! I did think that this book was chock full of drama, at times maybe a little too much and a little amped up. I couldn't believe that she had all these things going on at once and was trying to juggle it all.
Although the theme is serious, the book is laugh-out-loud funny. Wittman weaves blatant discrimination, family dysfunction and working motherhood into a hilarious tale without ever making light of it. Katie has to navigate the minefield of pregnancy while confronting her fears about what it means to be a working mother. What will become of my career? What about my hopes and dreams? Where did my waist go? If all Katie had to deal with was saving her career, that would be hard enough but family drama unfolds as Katie's spoiled little sister plans her over-the-top wedding from hell. Just when Katie thinks it can't get any worse, her biggest career fears come true and a near-tragedy that she never could've imagined forces her to re-evaluate her priorities.
Dripping with wisecracking sarcasm, quick wit and tearful realities, "No Kidding" explores the evolution of working motherhood that many of us face each day.
Buy this book: If you like dogs, babies, and other sundry cuteness.
Don't buy this book: If you're expecting dinosaurs, lasers, or zombies.
**I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.**
Katie Martin is content with her life as it stands. She has an adoring husband a house and a decent editing job. Katie just has her hopes on taking her career to a bigger level very soon. When Katie finds out she is expecting her first child and her job is not going so well and there is a possibility she may be layed off what else is she to do but worry!
I LOVED this book!! It was a very easy read and almost reminded me of my life when I found out I was having a child. You get to know the charters very well in this book (so well when they cry, you cry)!

But here's what I really learned: being a man is easy, compared to what today's women go through. Way easy,
Wittman's narrator lays it all down: child delivery, office politics, family politics, maternity leave, married life, bodily functions. You feel for the narrator: she's funny and fierce, but has her doubts: will she make a good mother? She's great at what she does, but will the backwards thinking of others kill her career? And what about her mother's health, and her sister's upcoming wedding?
And did she really just use the phrase 'camel toe'?
This first book from a wonderful new author is a true gem. I look forward to everything else she has to say.
