After reading the reviews and needing to educate myself on my current condition I thought this would be the book for me. I like things to be funny while learning as I have always found I retain more information when there is a sense of humour involved. In this case I was wrong. The apparently witty stories of her pregnancy (albeit admittedly mixed with stories from other people) came across as tiresome and not funny at all. In fact I am left wondering why this woman even decide to have a baby as pregnancy appears to be nothing but an inconvenience to her and she is doing the whole thing with nothing but disdain. I would find myself reading these and once I flipped the page and realised the end of this "tale" was a few pages away I skipped to the chapter on the actual pregnancy week. This was stressful. Already being an anxious person as I am a bit older, I found the fact that she constantly bangs on about all the negative and horrible things that can and will happen during pregnancy really quite depressing. I gave up reading at week 11 and didn't sleep a wink that night after what I had read. My doctor had put my mind at ease the week before, she had managed to undo all of that in just a few short paragraphs. I am a person who likes to be informed, but I don't like to be scared beyond belief and left feeling depressed and negative. Pregnancy is a trial at times and you do need to be made aware of certain things, but it wouldn't hurt to show some joy. Afterall, your body is doing something awesome; creating a whole human being. I would not recommend this book to anyone... Unless I really didn't like them very much.
