“One of the most candid, refreshing and funny books on pregnancy that I have ever read. I laughed so hard at times that I had tears rolling down my cheeks…Humorous and candid.”

This audio book was my first try at listening to a book in the car. I don't think I liked the book that much, I found the first few chapters funny but then felt it was just a long list of complaints. Pregnancy isn't all that bad for me so I have a hard time relating. And the voice for this audio book is not Jenny McCarthy and sounds like someone who has never used foul language before which really took away from the whole book. Hard to laugh at "I am so friggin' miserable" when it sounds like a diction teacher saying it!

This is a good book, that is funny and was a good read.
I got this for a friend as well, and its a fun book about the road to parenthood.

If you are pregnant and have time for a fluffy book to cheer you up, then this is it!

This book is extremely disappointing, unfunny and tragic !!! It is vulgar and the tone of it sounds like it is written by a 14 yrs old who learned about pregnancy from watching a dumb comedy. Poorly written and executed. It will only take you a few hours to read the book since each chapter is a few pages long. In addition, this book is just a long blurb of complaints. If you are considering this book read both the negative and positive comments then decide what appeals to you.

I thought this book was an enjoyable, quick read. I found it funny. I think some of these readers should lighten up - it's not supposed to be a book that tells you every detail of pregnancy - go buy 'what to expect' if you're looking for that. Some books are actually intended just for a good laugh and most of us could use just that when we are hormonal and expecting our first. Don't be so anal - you are about to become a mom, lighten up!

This book was ok, its basically Jenny telling a few stories from her pregnancy. it's really short and each chapter is about 3 pages. I think I just expected more of a story then what is basically excerpts from every pregnancy book I've ever read. Not terrible, but I wouldn't recommend it.

I read this book about half way through my pregnancy and I absolutely loved every minute. It was hilarious to read what Jenny went through in her pregnancy, and actually made mine seem like a breeze compared to hers! I absolutely recommend this to any moms-to-be or current moms!

Best Book Ever for expecting moms!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have never laughed so hard out loud reading a book in my life. It tells the truth and makes you feel better while being so, so entertaining all at the same time. Easy read, big letters, a must read!!!

I read the whole thing because I had a chunk of time and the chapters were short, but it wasn't worth it. Never could muster any empathy for her despite being pregnant myself. Kept thinking, "why was this published?" the whole time.
