I absolutely love this book. It was so refreshing to read something that was less serious but still have found that everything I’ve read in the book has been spot on with my experience. It’s nice to find reading on pregnancy that doesn’t actually terrify you and gives real life experience. I’ve found her advice and facts do actually match up with other books I’ve read by doctors when people don’t take the statements in this book out of context. Great read that will have you laughing and I will be the first to pass it along to my next pregnant friend!

Despite some negative reviews, I ordered this book anyway since I had skipped ahead and already read "The Girlfriend's Guide to the First Year" and I enjoyed that one. It seems like those reviews are pretty nit-picky, or else I'm just easy to please. I enjoyed the writing style of this book and it not being stuffy and clinical like all the others I've read about pregnancy. Aside from only a few more gory details I learned from my actual friends, I definitely learned a lot from this book and I'm glad I have it. Some of the info is dated since it is a fairly old book, but not a big deal. If you don't agree with some of the things she advocates, just do what your instincts tell you.

This book is a horrible pregnancy book. It isn't based on any sort of factual, medical data, but basically one lady and her girlfriends thoughts on pregnancy. Much of the information in the book is factually incorrect. For example, she states that you shouldn't exercise during pregnancy because it has "no benefits". This is absolutely not true. Research has shown that exercise in healthy pregnancy women leads to healthier birth weights and better labor. Another blatant, and honestly unsafe statement she makes is to practice kegels by stopping your flow of urine. I asked my doctor about this and she actually that I shouldn't do this because it can lead to a UTI. Please DO NOT buy this book!!!!!

Such a refreshing book. I bought this back in 2003 when I was pregnant at 19 back when the internet couldn't provide all the answers it can now. Let me just tell you, this book was a lifesaver. I had no idea what to expect and this book talked about all of the taboo subjects that women just don't share with each other. I would have been lost without this!

Good stuff: She gives really good advice on certain topics such as not to be embarrassed or afraid of wasting your doctor's time. She helps explain how your relationship with your OB is very different from any other doctor. She is also very reassuring and helps you prepare for any number of gross and/or embarrassing issues that may come up during your pregnancy or delivery.

Bad Stuff: Oh boy does she have body issues!!!! There is barely a topic in the entire book that she doesn't relate back to the fact that you are fat and disgusting when you are pregnant. She herself went from a size four to a ten so she was hardly obese but she will simply not stop harping on how unattractive you are when you are pregnant. She also goes out of her way to let you know that not only she thinks pregnant women are by nature gross to look at but that your husband thinks you look gross. She describes her own husband as only having sex with her when she was bigger out of pity. She does include one brief blurb that some men might like the pregnant body shape and find it a turn on but it is written in a style that leaves no doubt that she finds this to be a rare and laughable quirk that some men might have. If she hasn't already managed to make you feel self conscience about your changing body there is a paragraph about how some men tend to cheat on their wives while they are pregnant if they aren't up for sleeping with their husbands or if their husbands can't stomach sleeping with a pregnant woman. Not just insulting to women but she reveals a very low opinion of men as well. Reducing them to bumbling creatures who are disinterested in their wives apart from a creature to have sex with and to have to put up with if she gets emotional.

Oh, and if you thought that maybe instead of getting neurotic about your increasing size and you would focus on your health, here she comes to shame you out of exercising. She seems to take this really personally. Only crazy people exercise. And if you exercise and something bad happens with your pregnancy you will always be haunted that you harmed your baby by exercising.

Overall:I know this book has been revised over the years but I think it needs a complete rewrite for the next generation (by a new author).

After 'morning' sickness, tiredness, and reading a ton of informational books on pregnancy, I was so scared and starting to re-think the decision to EVER have children. My friend recommended this book with a smile saying "it's funny" and she was right. This book had me laughing at 3AM when I couldn't sleep, during plane rides, and even just thinking about some of the things she writes.

Pregnancy can be such a scary time and knowledge of biology doesn't make it any easier. This book is enlightening and candid. One feels identified with the author and her girlfriends on the funny experiences during these trying time. My individual fears suddeny were not as bad as others and the realization that women have been doing this for hundreds of years and have been successful at it! sets in as I read her stories. I highly recomend it for new mothers and especially for older new moms that analyze eerything (like me)!
