How I came across this book:
I actually didn’t choose this book; my husband bought it for me for Christmas when I was about two months pregnant. He knew I was pretty excited but also very nervous about this new phase in my life. He also knew that I would hate to read any mom or parenting books that were too complex and serious or gave strict dos and don’ts about becoming new parents. When he read this title, it made him laugh and decided to buy it for me, and I am so glad he did.
A little something about this book:
This book is written by Dawn Dais, focusing around the time she became pregnant and how she felt as a pregnant woman. She gives her readers all the raw and detailed feelings she had throughout her pregnancy but she does this all in an entertaining and comical way. She also includes partner sections where she offers beneficial tips on how our partners can help us through pregnancy and the first couple months of motherhood. These are usually one or two paragraphs love, my husband really enjoyed reading them.
While I was pregnant, I really enjoyed reading this book. There are many pregnancy books out there and books written to prepare you for becoming new parents, but this one really connected with me. I wanted someone to walk me through the changes I was going through, but in a fun way. I learned a lot about what was happening to me and my body during my pregnancy, and Dais also prepared me for labour and the first couple months of motherhood. The way she wrote about her experiences resonated with me, and I am so glad I read this book.
For any newly pregnant women who are a bit nervous about pregnancy and being a mom, this is the perfect book for you.
