    I loved this book It's heartwarming and funny It tells a personal story while also offers things to think about if you're having a child which don't always get discussed

    I couldn't stop laughing Everything she wrote rang so true I loved her writing style and her humor I never read the last few chapters however as it slowed down after she actually had her baby But I immensely enjoyed the diary of her pregnancy I was laughing so hard my husband made me read it outside because he was trying to study I would buy a copy of this book for everyone I know who has had a baby if I could

    I really enjoyed this memoir I rarely laugh out loud when reading but this one got to me a few times I'm only 21 weeks along right now but I feel like this must be a pretty realistic account of what happens to you physically and emotionally during pregnancy and as a mom Because some parts scared me some parts made me smile some parts made me want to cry and some parts made me just laugh And all that sounds a lot like what I've heard about parenthood from other parents

    A delightful read for expectant mommies Far from the tired what to expect type volumes this journal style book reads like a hilarious novel I read it every time I am pregnant and it always makes me laugh It's a little irreverent but not inappropriate Makes a great gift for an expectant friend with spunk

    Just because I read this does not mean I'm pregnant I AM NOT PREGNANT just enjoying Martha's wicked sense of humor and to tied me over until she gets her but in gear and releases another YA novelI kind of wish there were sections in Adam's perspective those were the parts I read aloud to my husband
