4 posts | 6 read | 2 to read
The practical, comforting, honest, and hilarious bestseller for moms-to-be, with more than one and a half million copies in print! Your doctor gives you medical advice. Your mother buys you baby clothes. But who can give you the real skinny when you re pregnant? Your girlfriends, of course at least, the ones who ve been through the exhilaration and exhaustion, the agony and ecstasy of pregnancy. Four-time delivery room veteran Vicki Iovine talks to you the way only a best friend can in the book that will go the whole nine months for every mother-to-be. In this revised and updated edition, get the lowdown on all those little things that are too strange or embarrassing to ask, practical tips, and hilarious takes on everything pregnant. What "really" happens to your body from morning sickness and gas to eating everything in sight and what it s like to go from being a babe to having one. The Many Moods of Pregnancy why you re so irritable/distracted/tired/lightheaded (or at least more than usual). Staying Stylish You may be pregnant, but you can still be the fashionista you ve always been (or at least you don t have to look like a walking beachball) wearing the hippest designers and proudly showing off your bump. Pregnancy is Down To a Science from in vitro fertilization to scheduled c-sections, there are so many options, alternatives, and scientific tests to take that being pregnant can be downright confusing! And much more! For a reassuring voice or just a few good belly laughs, turn to this straight-talking guide on what to really expect when you re expecting."

This book was the worst. Maybe I'm hormonal and pregnant but that makes me the target audience right? Soooooo judgy at a time in a woman's life when the last thing she needs is judgement. Not a book I will pass on.

No, I don't want no judgment
This book is a book that can't get no love from me
Hangin' off the top shelf side
Of it's judgy nosedive
Trying to throw shame at me.

I haven't been as active on here lately because I've been too exhausted to read much. Look closely at the books my hubby and I are reading to figure out why :-)

britt_brooke Congratulations!! ❤️❤️❤️ 3y
AJBowers YAY!!! My husband bought that same book! Congratulations!! There is nothing that is like that kind of tiredness. 3y
Reviewsbylola So exciting! For some reason, I always have an aversion to reading when I'm pregnant. Maybe it is the exhaustion! 3y

Librarylady3 @Reviewsbylola For me it is the exhaustion and the brain fog combo. I'm lucky if I can read a couple chapters a week! 3y
Librarylady3 @AJBowers no, there isn't. I always thought that my first year of teaching would be the most exhausting...until I got pregnant. This is a whole new level of tired. 3y
jessdean Yay! Congrats🎉 3y

Nice introduction to the idea of being a real person during pregnancy.

This book was fine until I got the point where the "girlfriends" think it's not important to exercise while pregnant. That is just ignorant. Also, terrible advice.
