Humorous and frank, Forty Weeks of Keeping Your Head Down chronicles one couple's struggle to conceive, navigate through the pregnancy, and survive the trials as gracefully as possible. It's a story of how one average guy deals with all that accompanies becoming a father-without suffering a mental breakdown. Author Bill Bounds is just a normal guy who wants to arrive at "daddyhood" with some sanity still remaining. He is not a doctor or psychologist. He's an average "Joe" trying to show others "Joes" what awaits them as they travel the winding road to fatherhood. Forty Weeks of Keeping Your Head Down does not focus on the medical aspects of pregnancy, but rather it provides a lighthearted alternative and discusses the real-life situations couples experience as they try to become parents. Geared toward men, but helpful for women, it provides a personal perspective on a man's thoughts and feelings as he experiences his wife's pregnancy.
