I really enjoyed this story of a pregnant woman's first-time journey through pregnancy and childbirth. Although, I do not have the personal knowledge or experience, I could empathize with the main character, Gretchen. This book reads like chick lit and is a quick and fun read. I would recommend it, especially to anyone who is pregnant!
We'll see if I like it... perhaps. Interesting age relevant idea: A woman who is struggling with if she wants to enter babydom or not, but she is really intent on showing that she is cool and liberal in the first few pages... if I can get past that I might like the book .
