Review

Dallas Morning News, 4/28/09
“[The authors] offer wit, wisdom and whimsy in this lighthearted guide to those all-important nine months…Positive attitude, coupled with the duo’s breezy style give the book it ‘talking to a friend’ flavor. Extensive research, meanwhile, enabled them to pass on scientific insights into everything from bonding with your burgeoning bump to the reasons behind cravings.”

“It's filled fun and quirky details and tips about pregnancy… Basically, it's like a bunch of your best girlfriends got together and wrote you a book. Instead of freaking you out, Postcards makes you smile…Along with being a nice Mother's Day gift for an expectant mom, you should add this to your list of potential baby shower gifts.”

By Christy McArthur on April 17, 2009
Format: Paperback
The Chick's do it again! Another fun, informative book by the "It's A Chick Thing" authors. This will be my new go-to book for my expectant friends and family. The stories from mom's who have been there give those entering this most wonderful experience of life a heads up on things to pay attention to and to watch for. I particularly like the pages for notes to record the readers experiences for their bumps to read later.

The medical and scientific information is also helpful to give insight into the changes going on in our bodies and minds during pregnancy. From hormones to why we go to the refrigerator only to find that we have no idea why...this is the information we need in short form rather than having to wade through a medical textbook.

This is a thoroughly enjoyable book for mom's-to-be, dad's-to-be and those who have been there!

Easy and fun read! PFTB really called to mind some great memories from being pregnant. I just laughed being reminded of the times my husband and I read books about what to expect and the precious and ridiculous moments that come with pregnancy. As a mom of two it was fun to read other's adventures in expecting and some really good advice and recipies. The book is a must give gift to all your girlfriends growing thier own bumps and a trip down memory lane for you.

This book is a must read for anyone who is pregnant or anticipating getting pregnant (new moms, be forewarned, after this book you might find yourself asking for a do-over). A refreshing blend of humor and truly useful advice, the authors offer wonderful suggestions and anecdotes which encourage you to make the most of your pregnancy rather than simply rush toward the finish line. And anyone can enjoy the fantastic recipes!

OK, I admit it. I bought it for a friend and, even though I'm not having any more babies, I was curious and read the entire book in two nights. It was a great, fun read and I loved it! I just bought 4 more copies for pregnant friends as I know it'll help them really bond with the baby in their bump and start some great memories. It's the perfect gift for anyone who is pregnant!
