Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Bella Online

"One of the most candid, refreshing and funny books on pregnancy that I have ever read. I laughed so hard at times that I had tears rolling down my cheeks...Humorous and candid."

Hudson Valley News, 2/12/2014

"A book for the expectant mother who needs a few moments of frivolity."

MediaMikes.com, 2/20/2014

"Jam packed with side splitting stories...The cool part about the book is that it doesn’t really matter if you have 1 kid or 10 or if you’re a guy or a girl. McCarthy’s book has a little something for everyone...Graphic yet hysterical stories...A fun quick read that both you and your significant other can enjoy."

"Like a gossipy girlfriend, McCarthy brings you in and makes you laugh; there's a certain comfort in knowing that even a sex symbol gets stretch marks and balloons to 200 pounds during pregnancy.... A must-have." --Booklist

"Jenny McCarthy is now the go-to girl for pregnancy." --Toronto Star
 
"Dishes dirt on giving birth that you never knew you needed to know.... [McCarthy is quite funny and, in the end, this is a celebration of motherhood." --Gotham 

"You don't even have to be knocked up to enjoy [this book]." --Playboy 

"McCarthy is undeniably crass but funny, and her candor and self-deprecation are refreshing." --Publishers Weekly

This book is a gem. It's like talking with your girlfriends, REAL talk, and is hysterical!

I bought this book expecting to find some humor during my second pregnancy. I found that McCarthy's writing wasn't really my style - almost loud and annoyingly boisterous, if anyone can write that way. She made her experiences seem like the worst of everyone's and her constant direct talk became annoying after the first couple chapters.

Jenny McCarthy is a moron. The world collectively gets less intelligent with every word she speaks. She is a black hole sucking away our hope for tomorrow.
