I loved this book, I had no idea what to expect as it was one of my kindle recommendations and I picked it on a whim.

I am glad I did, it was a funny book, kept me reading and was interesting. I have no idea if its anything like being pregnant but made it seem like its not too bad!

I was reading this on the bus earlier and actually laughed out loud so that the woman next to me looked at me like I was a little bit strange and shuffled to the edge of the seat! If you loved the humour of GAS-BAG you won't be disappointed. Any one who has been pregnant or is close to someone who has will love this book. From finding out to the delivery and all the ups and downs between, I really did enjoy this and laugh a lot! Well written, funny and true to life, Terri Douglas, you have done it again. 39 Weeks is brilliant!

This is funny, sad, infuriating, heartwarming and any number of other emotions all rolled into one easy to read book. For anyone who has been pregnant it will bring back memories of all the best and worst moments, and for anyone who may be thinking about pregnancy,well, life is not always this complicated! I read it on holiday and it was just right for reading in long and short bursts but there are quite a lot of characters involved. I particularly enjoyed the mother from hell!

Really enjoyed reading the book, it was a good bit of escapism. Characters were well formed and easy to identify with. Only one criticism, did the father ever find out?? (Not giving too much away here, I hope). There would have been a whole chapter, or even two, if the author had followed this route. I will certainly read more by Terri Douglas.

Looking at the cover I was uninspired but as the kindle book was free I gave it a go.
I wasn't disappointed.

It isn't high end literature, its pulp chick lit. That said it was a bit of a break from the norm for these type of books. Our heroine having got herself pregnant after a one night stand isn't looking for love but it seems it is looking for her. Some nice twists and turns and funny moments. Easy reading for a good escapist wind down.

I've had to put this down. I simply can't read another word of this story as I'm holding my breath waiting for the next apostrophe apocalypse. I'm sure many will say it doesn't matter but if published books can't get this very simple grammatical rule correct; if proofreaders can't spot the errors, then the English language is endangered.

Apostrophes denote posession and/or contraction. That is all! So 'do's and don'ts'? Why not 'don't's if it's 'do's'? What about 'the two Fran's'? The Fran's what? And so on.

Sorry but for me, this is a deal breaker!

I finished this book, but only becuase I was too lazy to find another book to read. What a waste of time - I do feel bad saying this, obviously the author put a lot of work into it (I assume, although she could have hashed it out in a day it seems), but the lack of grammar - especially commas - was infuriating! I kept having to re-read sentences becuase the grammar was wrong, so they didn't make sense.
The plot was dire, ridiculous and eye-rolling. You didn't feel much sympathy for Judy, just wanted to give her a good shake.
The book was full of waffle and unneccesary dialogue and basically just descriptions of what was happening - not told like a story should be, like 'I went to the shop then I went home then my baby was born'.
I wouldn't recommend it, apart from as an example of how important correct grammar is..!
