Overview

From the bloating to the belching to the Baby Story marathons that might just drive you crazy, prime-time star and new mom Tia Mowry delivers the lowdown in a frank, hilarious guide to modern pregnancy.

Tia Mowry's 800,000+ Twitter followers know that she tells it like it is. Now, in a pregnancy guide like no other, Tia leaves no topic off-limits while helping expectant moms stay empowered, pampered, and laughing out loud. From sex during the third trimester to pimped-out strollers, Oh, Baby! reveals what to really expect on that nine-month road to the delivery room.

Sharing her personal experience with cravings (she couldn't have done it without sourdough bread and Funyuns); maternity clothes (Tia prefers black, with sequins); panty liners (memorize that aisle at the drugstore); vagina exercises (just say No!); and hiding your bump from your coworkers (tricky for Tia, since her character on The Game is in lingerie half the time), the maternity maven also discusses Ask the OB Q&A's she posed to her own ob-gyn, along with dozens of tried-and-true tips for combating morning sickness, fear, and everything else that might overshadow a radiant glow.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I love this book. The chapter on Tia constantly taking pregnancy tests— that was me. I wanted it really badly. Congratulations, Tia. Our little girl is all grown up."
Wendy Williams

“As fans of Tia and Tamera know, Tia’s pregnancy was uh, memorable…. She relives some of her greatest moments in her refreshingly candid new book. Here, as in the show, Tia is the queen of Too Much Information. (Isn’t that what we love about her?) … Your favorite mom-to-be will thank you for this one.”
Essence

“A fresh take on being a new mom… light and breezy, yet informative.”
Ebony

Library Journal
Readers may recognize Mowry, winner of many NAACP, People's Choice, and Teen Choice awards, from her TV successes such as Sister, Sister; The Game; or Tia and Tamera. Adventures in pregnancy and parenting are frequent material for the style circuit, and like most celebrity mom tales, the advice here is secondary to the teller and is thus overly personal and clichéd. She covers everything from her early pregnancy to menu plans and from wardrobe advice to sex after the baby. Interspersed with stories about her swollen feet and flatulence problems are "Ask the OB" sidebars, which address common medical questions (such as swollen feet and flatulence). The book thus suffers from an identity crisis, hovering awkwardly between memoir and parenting. VERDICT While her acting success does not translate to print, Mowry has many followers and is a popular celebrity personality. Libraries should purchase for demand only.
