    This woman is an idiot. She says her epidural was the most wonderful thing in the world and only an IDIOT wouldn't get one, and don't let anyone talk you out of an epidural! Then, within a couple paragraphs of getting her "wonderful" epidural, her baby is crashing and they have to do an emergency C-section. HELLO?!? Doesn't this idiot know that an epidural can cause fetal distress and increase your chances of c-section significantly? No, I don't think she does, but meanwhile instead of educating her readers, she is steering them toward the same problems she had. And she goes on to NOT breastfeed, not because she tried and had problems, but because she is selfish and didn't even try at all. What a trashy, ill-informed, poor example of a woman.

    Hmmm... I picked this book up from the clearance table at the bookstore and sat down and read it while drinking some coffee. About the time I finished my coffee, I finished the book. It's very short and just not very well written, and I agree with other reviewers that the editing is severely lacking. I'm not a big Jenny fan, but I really thought I might laugh once while reading this book, but I didn't. My main reaction to it was pity. When I read the part about "psycho chick", I felt really bad for her that she had such an insensitive husband. And her reactions to her pregnancy problems made it seem like she just wasn't prepared for pregnancy. But the main problem I had with the book was the negativity, I wouldn't recommend anyone read this book, but I really wouldn't recommend it to anyone who is pregnant for the first time or hasn't been pregnant. She makes pregnancy sound like a horror show.

    My wife and I are expecting a boy on about October 1st (2008). It's the first child for both of us, so we bought the authoritative "Your Pregnancy Week by Week (Sixth Edition)" by G. B. Curtis and Judith Schuler. We'd read a chapter every week. The book was interesting and informative and we learned a lot. But after about the 25th week we began to experience burn-out on the reading of this week by week saga. We joked about the problem with another couple who recently had a baby. They said we were reading the wrong book and furnished us with a paperback titled "Belly Laughs" by Jenny McCarthy.Jenny McCarthy is an ex-Playboy model and actress. She has an earthy, self-deprecating sense of humor. She described her pregnancy as it really was and she could be quite funny. My wife and I could easily recognize ourselves in her naratives. About the only differences were in matters of degree. For example, my wife hasn't experienced the headaches described by Jenny, but has had much more serious problems with "Charley Horses" in the legs and feet. Otherwise, our experiences follow Jenny's fairly closely. I'd say her experiences were a little more pronounced than ours. I doubt that she was in as good shape as my wife or took as good care of herself. Her husband came across as an insensitive clod here and there. On the other hand, she may have exaggerated some things slightly for the sake of humor, and she can be very funny.The book is very informal, down-to-earth, funny and a quick read. Most chapters take no more than 5 or 10 minutes. It's not a serious treatise, but would provide good comic relief for any couple going through a pregnancy. The book is very informally written. Some like it as such and some don't. I have no way of knowing, but I have doubts that Ms McCarthy actually sat down and wrote the book. It reads as if it was dictated and recorded, and then typed up with only minimal editorial reworking. That's OK by me. It's an easy and fun book to read and I'd recommend it as light reading for any couple. Some people might find parts of the book offensive; My advice to them would be to lighten up a little. If you want heavier, much more serious reading, the Curtis/Schuler book is one of many that might work well.Gary Peterson

    This book was not funny at all, and not worth the 45 minutes it took to read it. Just dont bother with it. The content feels scattered, put together in random chuncks that dont really mesh together, and its so negative! Its like she decided to sit down every day and write three paragraphs about something she hated in her pregnancy, then throw in a foul or two word to make it "funny". I wasnt even slightly ammused... Im not sure why they even would think it would be funny? Its crass and negative. And not even crass and negative enough to be really "nasty"! Each chapter is super short, divided by about a bunch of blank space in between. You can read this book in one stint at your doctors waiting room.
