All I can say is fantastic!! These two ladies need to really write a novel! They are funny and smart and I laughed and understood and want to give this to a pregnant woman so she can laugh and understand! The authors cover it all and also let you in on their pregnancies and what they went through and what you can expect and more. I laughed so hard at her cravings for festival/carnival nachos with neon cheese! It was such a fresh new view on the whole experience that I found myself remembering my own pregnancies and my last one was 29 years ago!! In this day and age woman need to connect with other woman who have “been there and done that”. This book does that, but in a way so you feel like you’re hanging out with close friends and telling your war stories! Some of the fun chapters include: A bumpy start (for those about to hurl), and “What the bump want the bump gets”! and “Belly Dancing your bump gets busy”. It is such a fresh look at this wonderful part of life and a lot of books forget the humorous side to it. And let’s face it if you’ve been pregnant before or it’s your first time, we need laughter, and lots of it. This is one of those books that when you are finally done having babies, you pass it on to a sister, friend or co-worker. I am going to find someone pregnant so it won’t be wasted on me!!! I loved this!!!
