This is part of the Mommy But Still Me blog tour by Babs Blog Bonanza

Well written in a narrative/diary style which I found very interesting and entertaining. The author captures the intimate events of early pregnancy and motherhood in an honest manner with much needed injections of comic relief. The fears and hopes that many would be mother's can relate to are also weaved into this story which makes this a wonderful read for all women.

This was a quick, cute story about one woman’s transition to parenthood. I thought she raised some good questions. It was funny (describing the early bedtime of a newly pregnant woman and how men’s books are shorter than women’s). She also gave some good advice (really good to know other moms so you have someone to contact for questions or concerns). She mentions how becoming pregnant and having kids tends to bring people closer to you – I do feel like that is true. As soon as I found out I was ...more

Despite my rating of only 3 stars, I did enjoy this book. It was quick read of a series of essays during different points of the authors pregnancy. I found the tidbits about pregnancy in another culture interesting and would be interested in more. Unfortunately I was often distracted by an obvious lack of general editing. If the actual editing had been a bit better I would have rated this pick higher, still I am rather glad I took the time to read it.

As women this whole having children business can be overwhelming for something that is supposed to be a natural part of our existence. But for a purported innate female ability the journey to motherhood follows its own path for every woman. No matter what the textbooks say, or the experts (some of whom aren't even women), one of the best ways to even begin to understand is for us to share our stories and read those of others. Rajakumar shares her story admirably from the determination to pursue ...more

Mommy But Still Me is an honest account of one woman's journey into the realm of pregnancy and motherhood. The anxiety of finding out you are not pregnant when you desperately want to be, then finding out you are and if you do everything the right way. As a mother of four grown children, this book brings back numerous memories of my pregnancies and deliveries. I was in labor with my first child for over 36 hours and I had lots of anxieties, especially when I really did not know what to expect. W ...more

A free book I picked up on kindle. A realistic and honest account of one woman's journey through pregnancy and the beginnings of motherhood. Humorously written, but I felt it a bit too flippant at times. I didn't agree with everything she wrote, but then again that's parenting, no two people will parent exactly the same!
