    " There were a few places where I chuckled, but most of the time I just felt like I was reading about a really neurotic pregnant lady. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Papillon | 2/20/2014

    " I got this as a baby shower gift. It is was definitely a good laugh in a time when I needed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lesley Chalkley | 2/16/2014

    " Funny! I read it during my 3rd pregnancy, if I was reading it during my 1st pregnancy some things might terrify me, but since I have a pretty good idea on what's to come I laughed lots during this book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rhonda Iglesias | 2/15/2014

    " Hilarious and relatable. Highly recommend to any mommy to be or mommy:) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel Kasten | 2/8/2014

    " I started to read many medical/informative pregnancy books when I was pregnant with my daughter. They all freaked me out. This was the only book I actually finished and it was informative from a real life perspective and full of honesty and humor. I highly suggest this for any mother-to-be or mother. This helped me to be positive and have less worry up through my delivery. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leigh Benton | 2/6/2014

    " Loved this book! I read it when i was pregnant with my son and will read it again during my next pregnancy. McCarthy has a way of getting right to the point and relating straight to you. Its also hilarious! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allee | 2/3/2014

    " You kind of have to take some of this with a grain of salt. But I admit, I did laugh out loud and giggle at quite a few parts. Maybe I just don't remember that well, or maybe I blocked it out, but not everything was true for me. Funny read, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Miranda Diaz | 1/28/2014

    " This book got a lot of terrible reviews, but it is what it is. One girl's light-hearted experience with the strangeness of pregnancy. I found it entertaining and endearing and enjoyed her poking fun of the embarrasing sides of pregnancy that only a pregnant mother can understand. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 L.e. | 1/19/2014

    " this was pretty funny. i read it in about 45 minutes and then mailed it to a friend- its cute. I just try to forget that she ended up divorced from the father and that the baby has autism spectrum disorder. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsay Duttera | 1/1/2014

    " Super lighthearted and funny stories about pregnancy. Discusses the crazy things the body does during pregnancy and not technical and boring like other pregnancy related books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shelley Gilbert | 7/25/2013

    " Quick read and mildly comical portrayal oF pregnancy. Would not recommend if you are looking for an accurate book about pregnancy labor and delivery. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan Mkrtschjan | 7/14/2013

    " Jenny McCarthy is hilarious and completely uncensored as she shares her experience having her son. I laughed, I cried, and she scared me out of my mind.....I'm ready to read the next two! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alecia | 5/18/2013

    " I bought this book right after I found out I was pregnant for my first child. I lost count how many times I laughed out loud. I read this book easily in a day and then read it again a few weeks later. Definitely a fun read for me. Informative in a humorous, no fluff sort of way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen Chastain | 5/16/2013

    " Hilarious and frightening to read while pregnant. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leanne | 5/14/2013

    " HiLAAAARious!!!! I have a hard time recommending it to people though due to the graphic language and somewhat inappropriateness of a few parts. (She does not sugarcoat ANYthing about pregnancy). "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Gretchen Jeffers | 3/28/2013

    " she annoyed me on television. Not sure why I thought she wouldn't annoy me via written word. Nothing she said was new or different from what my mommy friends have already said. Nothing groundbreaking, or even helpful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin (jason&robin) | 3/26/2013

    " Cute book. It's nice to read about book about pregnancy that isn't too serious. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marissa | 2/17/2013

    " VERY SCARY for someone that has never had children. It did make me laugh in between being scared to death. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betsey | 1/27/2013

    " It's funny because it's true. Loved this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy Bergethon | 12/31/2012

    " A must for anyone who has ever been pregnant and the guy who has to live with her. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Candace Petersen Martineau | 12/5/2012

    " I read it in under an hour. Entertaining, good to know what to look forward to. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zelsea | 11/20/2012

    " A entertaining, light look at the weird things that happen to a woman's body during pregnancy. Not the most informative if you're looking for anything in-depth, but her frankness is refreshing and hilarious. A fun, quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jesika | 10/27/2012

    " Jenny kicks ass and she does not censor herself at all! She is hillarious! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Aimee | 10/17/2012

    " Funny, at parts and honest all the way through. Definitely resonated with me in certain chapters. Had issue with the glib tone, however. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Holly Haeger | 10/10/2012

    " Who doesn't like to find the humor in an obviously scary and uncomfortable situation. Jenny went where no one likes to talk about!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 AJ Conroy | 9/30/2012

    " Cry-funny. I'm relating more as I progress, but not looking forward to the moo-moo stage. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna | 7/13/2012

    " Picked this up on a free book shelf at work because a friend had mentioned it was funny. Read it in a few hours and thought it was raw and honest and hilarious. Appreciated her candor and truthfulness about her own life experience. Nothing wrong with telling it like it is. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natalie Nigliazzo ingaunis | 4/25/2012

    " This is one of the funniest and most truthful books I have ever read! McCarthy did not hold back. Way to go sister! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stephanie McAndrew | 3/22/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel Wheeler | 5/29/2011

    " This is definitely a funny book and a different perspective on pregnancy. Definitely not a guide to go to if you have any real questions about pregnancy but a good book to go to to throw some humor into pregnancy and birth. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Catrina | 5/24/2011

    " A really quick read from the library. Made me chuckle, but I don't take her too seriously as she convinces parents not to vaccinate their children. Still, lots of stuff a lady in delicate condition can relate to. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brittanie | 5/19/2011

    " A funny take on pregnancy, I enjoyed it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 5/12/2011

    " Good for a laugh. Not really helpful and certain parts scared me about pregnancy. Good read to pass the time. Not a must read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 5/1/2011

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carolyn | 4/26/2011

    " This book was definitely entertaining and a quick read. It didn't offer much real life advice though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristi | 4/18/2011

    " A very funny read and you need those when you're pregnant! "

    " I did not expect much from this book, since it was by... Jenny McCarthy. However a lot of it was laugh out loud funny. It will be a gift for the next pregnant person I know. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Evelin | 3/16/2011

    " Awesome!!! This book is incredibly funny! Making light of all the pregnancy symptoms! "
