So I finally gave up and just read the book, its too much just reading a chapter at a time! She tells the story of her second pregnancy and birth in journal form, so its nice to hear a real woman's account of what you're going through at the time you are going through it. However, she seems to have some more graphic problems that I don't have yet...so I'm not sure if that is reassuring or just scary foreshadowing of things to come! Very quick and fun read.

When I found out I was pregnant I bought a ton of books. As it turned out, this was the one of the only ones that I ever read cover to cover. It is entertaining and informative. Also, while the author talks about complications to be aware of, she doesn't make it sound scary and impossible like some other books out there. It's just like talking to a friend. I highly recommend this book.

Fun to read, kind of like sharing pregnancy experiences with a good friend. Not awesome for getting the facts (since this is just one person's experience) but entertaining nevertheless. It helps to know that crazy things happen to someone else's pregnant body and you aren't alone!

Reading this book is like talking to the girlfriend you wish you had about pregnancy. She documents her pregnancy week--by-week, the good and the bad. Loved it!

An enjoyable read, but there were enough detailed descriptions of side effects that I think I'll avoid it while pregnant so I don't get too paranoid and expect the worst.
