The practical, comforting, honest, and hilarious bestseller for moms-to-be, with more than one and a half million copies in print! Your doctor gives you medical advice. Your mother buys you baby clothes. But who can give you the real skinny when you're pregnant? Your girlfriends, of course--at least, the ones who've been through the exhilaration and exhaustion, the agony and ecstasy of pregnancy. Four-time delivery room veteran Vicki Iovine talks to you the way only a best friend can--in the book that will go the whole nine months for every mother-to-be. In this revised and updated edition, get the lowdown on all those little things that are too strange or embarrassing to ask, practical tips, and hilarious takes on everything pregnant. What really happens to your body--from morning sickness and gas to eating everything in sight--and what it's like to go from being a babe to having one. The Many Moods of Pregnancy--why you're so irritable/distracted/tired/lightheaded (or at least more than usual). Staying Stylish--You may be pregnant, but you can still be the fashionista you've always been (or at least you don't have to look like a walking beachball)--wearing the hippest designers and proudly showing off your bump. Pregnancy is Down To a Science--from in vitro fertilization to scheduled c-sections, there are so many options, alternatives, and scientific tests to take that being pregnant can be downright confusing! And much more! For a reassuring voice or just a few good belly laughs, turn to this straight-talking guide on what to really expect when you're expecting.… (mais)

I read this guide from cover to cover a decade ago now, and I decided to revisit it as an older person thinking about having another baby. My original score for this book was somewhere around 4 or 5 stars, but now it's 3. The first time along I was a very young woman who was very taken in by the humor and the way the author encourages women to do things whatever way that they need to. It's very much a calm down, everything will be fine, even if you're a little crazy right now book. I still like the humor and the message to just get it done whatever way you need to, but older me has more reserve. I know now that she is a bit misinformed about some things, and that there are things that you can do to screw the pooch in pregnancy. These days I'm more of a there's very little that you can do to really mess things up person. So my overall opinion on this book is that it is good for the humor and calming yourself down when you're about to melt down, but I wouldn't advise taking all of the information inside to heart. This is feel-good reading, not hard hitting research. Treat it accordingly. ( )

Read sometime in May. I thought it was better than What to Expect. ( )

Vocki Iovine puts a hilarious spin on pregnancy. Now, having had three kids, I probably wouldn't recommend it for it's usefulness, as what I know about pregnancy and childbirth and the highly medicalized industry it's become has changed vastly, but when I was pregnant for the first time I really enjoyed it. For the mainstream population out there it's probably a good selection. ( )

"Now is the time for a reappraisal of your relationship with your bed pillows. They will grow to become your best friends, not only the one or two that you have always known and loved, but all the new pillows you will buy (or steal from your husband) to help them in their duties."

Vicki Iovine, veteran of the birthing suite x 4, is here to save you from all the conflicting pre-baby advice. With humour.

I have to say, I thought this was going to be funnier than I found it. Only at two points (and now, of course, I cannot find them to quote them) did I actually burst out laughing. Some of the time I smiled, the rest of the time it was just, you know, a normal book.

What I did like about this was that it felt very real. Like Iovine had gathered the experiences of Actual Humans and not the magical birthing droids who live in What to Expect. She has examples from an array of her girlfriends, which was quite reassuring.

Worth a read, but definitely when I did, towards the end of pregnancy when you've already read the whole internet. And more for a light bit of reading than for side-splitting hilarity or particularly sage advice. ( )

A fun and easy read, full of lots of fun and funny tidbits, but lacking in content. Read this and buy a more "medical" type book too. ( )
