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, during and after her pregnancy. As the title of her book leads you to assume, she will give you all the details of pregnancy. She does this all in an entertaining and comical way. She includes partner sections where she offers beneficial tips on how our parents can help us through pregnancy and the first couple months of motherhood. She does this in a fun and short way; my husband liked reading those sections every time they came up.
I enjoyed reading this book while I was pregnant. 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 woman who is a bit nervous about pregnancy and being a mom, this is the perfect book for you.
