I'll be honest, I'm not a mom-to-be but really wanted to read this since I seen her promoting this on Tyra. I haven't read her other books so I can not compare it to others in her "series". With that out of the way, I thought the book was a loosy-goosy "what to expect" in the months during and after pregnancy, from a view point of a friend-like person without a medical and "sterile" background. With this in mind, her point of view is seen in realistic 30 year old mom setting/language but also VERY Jenny McCarthy.
If you haven't heard of her before this book and get easily offended by crude nick names like "Nursing Nazi" or the occasional swearing, this book isn't for you. If you're looking for medicinal/factual information, this isn't for you. But, if you want something that displays a tongue-in-cheek way of looking at pregnancy, this is one that I thought was pretty amusing. Kitch-y illustrations and all.
I could totally relate to Jenny McCarthy's truth-telly book about the first year of motherhood. I found myself laughing out loud, which was much needed for this sleepless mom! I have passed this book along to another first time mom, so that she too knows that she is not alone in her motherhood journey!
Very cute book. I definitely had a few laugh out loud moments as I remembered the times that she was describing.
This book is probably more helpful for someone who is about to have a baby or has a very young baby opposed to someone with a 6 month old.
Very funny book for the woman's woman :)
