  • Funny look at pregnancy

    I found this book more hilarious than helpful. I enjoyed it though because it wasn't so information heavy and scary. It was more like speaking to a funny close friend on her experiences of being pregnant.

    I loved this book. I bought it when pregnant with my 4th child and think it gave me the best down to earth advice. Sure their is the fictional story plus the real stuff, but I related to so much of it. I then handed to a cousin and she loved it too. Would recommend to expectant mothers with maybe a bit of an open mind.

    I didnt like the book at all, I think the author was more trying to boost her own career than write anything helpful for expectant mothers, unless you are in exactly the same boat as she is then this book is no use to you
