First off I love Jenny McCarthy. She is sooo funny she makes me laugh so hard I practically joked on my milk. I think her crudiness is extremely funny. I read this book in one sitting and laughed through out the whole book. My husband kept asking, "What's so funny?" and " I thought you were reading a baby book?" I think he felt a little left out. This book is great. A great book to add to your list of baby books you need to read before the baby comes.
A hilarious look at the pains and laughs of pregnancy. The author shares her highly personal and funny pregnancy experience. There are aches and pains and symptoms not every preggo mother would endure, but it's fun to read and grin along with her. You may not learn much from this book but at least you'll feel better you're not the only one going through this.
This book is a hilarious look at all the changes that take place during pregancy - some of them even a bit humiliating. But it's written in such a light hearted way you will find yourself saying "oh that happens to me" or "i'm not the only one" over and over again. It's good for all moms, but especially 1st time moms who wonder what the heck is happening to them both emotionally and physically! A must have!
A witty and upfront look at the ups and downs, although mostly downs, of pregnancy. Jenny McCarthy is refreshingly honest. If you don't like "too much personal information", then this is not a book for you. If you are pregnant now, it gives you an honest look at some things you might experience that you may be embarassed to talk about with even your closest friends. If you are not pregnant, but have been, it allows you to have a good laugh remembering all the bad things about pregnancy. Overall, a quick and funny read.
This was my favorite book to read when I was pregnant. I had What To Expect When You're Expecting and all the other typical pregnancy books, but this was by far my favorite. I would recommend it above all others. It was honest and straightforward from a pregnant woman's point of view. Made you feel like you weren't alone and crazy. Awesome book!
I would recommend this book to everyone... If your pregnant and can appreciate Jenny's crude but truthful humor you will enjoy this book... My husband came running inside to see what was so hilarious to find me reading still dumbfounded by the fact I was almost peeing in my pants over a book....
Great book! It feels like you are having a conversation with a girlfriend about her pregnancy. It's really short - I read it in 3 days in small chunks. Very entertaining, yet informative. It makes you feel like you aren't alone. Jenny is very funny - I will be reading her new book next!
When I am pregnant I LOVE to read pregnancy books. Being pregnant with my 5th, I really needed something to different to read besides the basic "textbook" pregnancy books with all the same info. This book was perfect! A great reminder of all the not so fun things that come with being pregnant. This hilarious book is a great read, regardless of if it's your 1st or 15th pregnancy!
This book is a no-hold-barred, all secrets out expose' on the much-"waxed poetic" time of expecting a baby. If you are looking for dreamy and general outlines of the beautiful moments preceding labor and delivery of a baby, trust me and look elsewhere! If, on the other hand, you are looking for the real, tell-it-like-it-really-is story of what a woman may experience during pregnancy, then this is your book!

I am reading this book for the 3rd time since owning it. OMG!!! It's comical. However. I don't have kids, so listening to her, kinda makes me go... Oh hell no. However on this last read, in the middle of the book now. I found it more comical then the other times I read it. I'm sure that not every Mother has experianced everything in this book and some have, and much more. This is a great read for anyone really. It will keep you laughing. Jenny is a very good author. I personally can't wait till she writes some more. Peace!
I loved this book! It helps you keep things in perspective, I think. It's so easy to get bogged down in all the aches and pains and yucky stuff about pregnancy. It's nice to hear to hear her make fun...

Even my husband who NEVER reads...I mean he doesn't even read his Playboys...picked this one up to see what all my laughs were about! He got a good chuckle out of the "piggy sex" chapter!!
