"Ready or not, here comes baby!

Talk about a bump in the road. Whether you were waiting until "the right time" to have kids or hoped and pleaded the day wouldn't come, you'll breathe a sigh of relief when you flip through Oops! In this collection of humorous essays, Jezebel.com blogger Tracy Moore shares her personal experiences with jumping headfirst into motherhood--without a clue what she was doing. Unexpectedly pregnant at thirty-three, Moore's life completely changed when she had to give up her beloved cigarettes and cold deli meats and quickly learn how to care for the little bundle of (ahem) joy growing inside her. Her honest advice will help you cope with all the changes and feelings that will occur on your way to parenthood.

From stockpiling baby supplies in just a few months to being the lone sober one at a party, this book answers all your questions and braces you for the unexpected.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I did get a kick out of the book. It's honest, open, and funny. It's not your typical loving parenting book, but it is real and practical. If you or a friend is unexpectedly pregnant, this resource might be the best one to give them before all the other parenting books, so they get a sense that they aren't alone in their surprise." --Motherhood Moment

"A hilariously irreverent look at modern breeding from the perspective of a work-hard-party-harder writer who had no plans to get pregnant--and then did." --Nashville Scene

"Moore chronicles her journey and gives helpful tips for others who find themselves in her shoes in Oops! How to Rock the Mother of All Surprises." --Chicago Tribune

"I absolutely adored Oops!... because Moore is the type of girlfriend I wish I would have had to comfort me during my own unplanned pregnancy. Moore's writing gives you the sense that your unplanned pregnancy, while not an ideal situation, is somehow going to work out OK in the end." --Smart Mom Picks

"Moore's conversational tone is welcoming. This is the perfect gift for all your accidentally preggers peeps." --Bust Magazine
