5.0 out of 5 stars Lighten up, people!, 12 Sept. 2012
By 
This review is from: The Girlfriend's Guide to Pregnancy: (or Everything Your Doctor Won't Tell You) (Girlfriends' Guides) (Paperback)
I have read most of Vicki`s books. I have also just finished reading most of the reviews here. My opinion - of anyone with 3 stars or less is simply: lighten up! Yes, preganncy is a beautiful, spiritual, emotional experience. It`s also flipping GROSS! Vicki is not an expert, nor does she pretend to be. If you want expertise, there are ample pregnancy and childrearing books to choose from (my personal favourites are the "What to Expect" series.) But if you want to have an out and out laugh and not take yourself and the "condition" you find yourself in too seriously - this book and all her others are fabulous. They don`t pull any punches, and are a little "nineties" - I mean no disrespect by that, but as anyone who has ever had children will know, opinions and fashions in obstetrics, early childhood, childrearing and teenage angst change by the year. But if you want the god-honest truth from a "best friend" - she will absolutely give it to you. Of course, whether or not you choose to take it is entirely up to you. Summed up in 3 words: intellectual chick-lit. Once you wind up pregnant, what more could you possibly need? Except perhaps an epidural......
