Fun Book! Nov 11, 2008
I just love this book! I read it twice and just bought anouther copy for a friend. It can really help lighten up the worst day of your pregnancy.
Just the Right Amount of Humor... Sep 17, 2008
This book gives you just the right amount of humor that you need when you're miserably pregnant or even happily pregnant. I now buy it for my expectant friends. It is fun, easy reading that uplifts your mood and lifts your spirits.
Great non-traditional book Sep 23, 2007
This book is a great non-traditional book for the expectant mother. It is written by your everyday mom and directed to your everyday woman. The book is not only informational but it is also very inspirational as well as humourous. Does not read like a cook-book or medical dictionary like many other preganancy books do. I would recomend this book to all expectant mothers.
A True Godsend - Information Delivered with Humor Jan 24, 2007
I absolutely LOVE this book and I can not recommend it enough. I had read "The Girlfriend's Guide to Pregnancy" and liked it enough, but this book had a huge component which was missing from "Girlfriend's Guide" - the spiritual side of pregnancy which is so important to me.
Lori has written such a wonderful book, complete with verses in a non-threatening way and appropriate for all pregnant women, despite differing religious beliefs.
She has presented so much information, from before the pregnancy to the ride home from the hospital. This is all presented honestly, with an awesome sense of humor.
Panels of her girlfriends answer questions about various topics, such as the decision to return to work, how to tell co-workers and family that one is expecting, maternity clothes (the good, the bad, and the ugly), what to do about typical pregnancy worries along with recommended books for a given month, a "To Do" list for the month, and a journal she had written for her second son closes each chapter. She covers the spiritual side injected with a warm sense of humor.
I felt bad when I was getting to the end of the book, I never wanted it to end and I couldn't put it down. I can not recommend this book highly enough, and I'm recommending this book to everyone around me who is pregnant. Such a fun and helpful book, and I look forward to reading more of Lori Craker's books.
A "Must Give" Gift for Baby Showers! Apr 7, 2006
Desperately searching for a cute book to give an expectant friend, I again turned to Lorilee Craker's fresh, fun style of writing. And I, too, could not disagree more w/ Spelly regarding the spiritual content of this book. While the vast majority of books on pregnancy and childbirth are secular in nature, it was wonderful to find one that had a spiritual ~ no, CHRISTIAN ~ content. The Biblical thread was interwoven throughout this book with a wonderfully quiet spirit. It would offend neither those who aren't Christians, nor those who are more mature in their faith walks.
...and my friend who received this book as a "Gee-I'm-So-Happy-You're-Pregnant!" gift? She loved it, too!
