No educational value whatsoever, but hilarious! A nice break from "textbook" style pregnancy books.

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.

I loved her no holding back attitude. All of my pregnant friends are reading this and it has been a great ice breaker to all the not so nice parts of pregnancy.

This book didn't live up to my expectations. I heard tons of women rave about it and while it was humorous enough, I didn't like McCarthy's close minded views of breastfeeding or birthing naturally sans drugs. I didn't want to expect to read any judgments in this book, and being an emotional pregnant woman already sensitive to my choices for feeding and birthing, I probably would've passed had I known about them.

That said, she's quite honest about many of the dirtier details of pregnancy, so it's nice knowing that even Playmates deal with the same symptoms.

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.

I read this book in one setting, as did my sister. It's pretty hilarious and brutally blunt. Not for the squeamish!

Cute book. Super quick read. I only recommend reading this once you have symptoms to relate to. It's funnier that way.
