Sarah | 21 comments I'm currently reading "Diary of a mad mom-to-be" a funny book about a woman on her pregnancy journey or whatever you want to call it and I love it! I'm getting married next year and we plan to try to have a baby right afterwards so I really want to read a bunch of books like this so I know what to expect and just because I can't wait!! Any suggestions would be awesome, thanks!

Expecting Adam A True Story of Birth, Rebirth, and Everyday Magic was really good too, but not funny either.

Babyhood
Belly Laughs The Naked Truth About Pregnancy and Childbirth

I havent read Jenny McCarthy's, tho I heard it was quite humorous. Paul Riesers book- Babyhood - Absolutely HILARIOUS!!!

Hayes (Hayes13) Haven't seen the book, so I don't know how irreverent it is, but the title is great:

What to Expect When You're Expected A Fetus's Guide to the First Three Trimesters

Angie crosby (SierraMae) | 32 comments I thought Girlfriends Guide to Pregnancy was funny.

Brenda | 265 comments I thought Dave Barry's: Babies and Other Hazards of Sex was hilarious, someone gave it to me as a gift after my son was born and it made me laugh out loud.

Sarah | 21 comments I've read lots more hilarious and informative books on this subject by now so if anyone can think of any others that would be very helpful. If you are interested and want to know my suggestions as well don't be afraid to ask. Thanks!

Kristen Cummiskey | 1 comments I am an author. I recently wrote the book "You Know You Are Pregnant When...". It's a funny book about what women go through. It's great to read aloud at baby showers or just to get a laugh. And it's all stuff that actually happens!! Hope you enjoy it. You can find it on amazon at: http://www.amazon.com/You-Know-Are-Pr...
