Overview

When a couple gets pregnant, typically, the first thing the mother-to-be does is rush out to the bookstore to buy the various pregnancy bibles. But how is the expectant father supposed to know what to expect?

Overview

When a couple gets pregnant, typically, the first thing the mother-to-be does is rush out to the bookstore to buy the various pregnancy bibles. But how is the expectant father supposed to know what to expect? He could wait in the dark and take his cues from his partner, or he could prepare himself for anything and everything by seeking the counsel of two regular dudes, who have climbed the steep learning curve (and lived to tell) that comes when having a baby. THE DUDES' GUIDE TO PREGNANCY dispenses irreverent, honest, practical advice for the expectant father in an easy-to-understand—and often hilarious—man-to-man format. Taking you through the entire nine month process, the Dudes offer advice on what to expect from your newly pregnant wife (paranoia, morning sickness, enlarged breasts, no sex); the dos and don'ts of dealing with your wife's body and mood changes, your mother-in-law and other family members; and the nitty-gritty details of what is expected of you and how your life will be changing during the next 40 weeks. THE DUDES' GUIDE TO PREGNANCYgives twenty-something to forty-something men the indespensible tools and advice they need to maneuver the many ups and downs associated with impending fatherhood.

    The Dudes Rock!

    Eloquent imagery and vivid descriptions makes this a page turner you cannot put down. Who am I kidding? The dudes straight forward and sarcastic depictions had me laughing until I wet myself. My chuckles were so loud and heart-felt while perusing on the plane that I am no longer allowed to fly American. By far this has been the most entertaining book I have read in a long time. Humor aside, having been a father already I can attest that this book is dead on accurate and a must read for any dude who is looking to have a child. Rock on Dudes!

    ¿Blunt and To-The-Point¿

    I broke the first rule of this book, which is females are not to read it. I have to admit that knowing what I know now about childbirth and pregnancy, I would have reconsidered the whole ¿whatever happens, happens¿ mentality. Had I read this book and gotten the inside scoop, I would have never considered pregnancy. Pregnancy is not ¿beautiful¿ it is gross. The dudes tell it all. The drawings are hilariously tacky as is rest of the book. However, it is informative. EVERYTHING is touched upon¿from sex (or lack of) to bloody show. If you don¿t know what bloody show is, you definitely need this book. A great taboo point that was made was that dudes really are not that helpful in the delivery room. Also, think twice before you look ¿down there¿ at your child coming out of ¿you know what¿. As politically incorrect as it may be, I am all for keeping dudes out of the delivery room. What happened to them pacing in the room next door? This is an excellent book for dudes. If a dude you know is forced into a couples baby shower, give this to him!
