No one ever tells you about all of the crap that happens to you when you’re pregnant. Like, for example, it’s not nine months, it’s ten long months.
We are three thirty-something women who were fortunate enough to be pregnant at the same time. We shared our questions, fears, humor, and experiences through emails,which became our lifeline and virtual support group. Here, we share the good, the bad, and the ugly of our experiences. We do not hold back for the squeamish or the faint of heart—you need the truth, and now!
We are all social workers with graduate education, and we have all worked in the obstetrical units of hospitals for many years. Along the way, we thought it might be helpful to have someone sane weigh in on our hormonal ramblings, so we asked Dr. Bob, a specialist in high-risk pregnancies to help us out. But, we know that all of this experience is nothing like being pregnant yourself!
So prop up your cankles, rest this book upon your shelf of a belly, and check out our email log. We made it through the entire experience and lived to tell the tale—and you will too.

It’s not “What to Expect”, it’s the raw truth…not just about pregnancy but about friendship and the power of the woman called Mom.

Tells it like it is and absolutely HILARIOUS! This book is amazing whether you are a first-time mom or have multiple children at home. It tells the good, the bad, and the ugly about pregnancy and childbirth and doesn’t leave anything out. It discusses all the normal pregnancy things that occur that no one ever talks about. It is so nice to read this and realize you are not the only one out there experiencing these things! All the “joys” of pregnancy were approached in ways that had me laughing till I couldn’t breathe! Portions of the…

Can’t Stop Laughing This book is SO FUNNY!!! These girls have so many great moments during their pregnancies that they have chosen to share that literally made tears roll down my face from laughter. This book offers humor as well as medical knowledge to normalize women’s pregnancies and is such a great example of the strong bond and connection that we all cherish about our friendships.
