From the Back Cover

Meet Louise, 38, Toni, 26, and Gemma, 18. They are all expecting babies in September. And they are all discovering that impending motherhood is more than a little overwhelming. Finding their way onto an online forum, they discover fellowship, friendship, way too much information - and ultimately one another. Meeting in real life, they set out to face the highs, lows, secrets and revelations of pregnancy and the first months of motherhood together. But one of the women is keeping a secret that will test their friendship to its very core...

I read this book really quickly! Thoroughly enjoyed it on the basis that I've had two children and met one very close friend in particular through a baby website when I was pregnant the first time 5 years ago. We are still firm friends! I think this book is only really suitable for someone who has recently had children, you can really relate. I liked the different women, the characters were brilliant. I liked the different scenarios of each woman, I felt they were very realistic. Took me just two sittings to read, I look forward to more from this author. Very much!

Format: Paperback
The book tells the tale of 3 pregnant women. Firstly, there is Louise, the oldest of the women who ends up getting pregnant after a one night stand with someone at work. She decides to keep the baby, and move to London to live near her brother and sister. Only Lou's pregnancy proves to be a sore point for Lou's sister Rachel who can't seem to have children herself, and opens up a rift between the pair. Then there's Toni, who is told by her doctors she'd better hurry up and have a baby with hubby James after finding out she has fertility problems, and suddenly finds out after a short while of trying that they're pregnant. The sudden pregnancy proves difficult for the couple, can they make it through? Finally, there's teenager Gemma, who wants to get pregnant for all the wrong reasons with boyfriend Ben. But with parents who don't really give a damn, an interfering mother-in-law and dad-to-be who doesn't want to know, will Gemma manage alone?

The three mums-to-be all seem very different, but that's the great thing about being a mum. You end up talking to people you'd never have spoken to before, because you have these little people in common, and you form friendships quickly. I like that Fiore chose to bring in the multitude of parenting websites and forms out there that mums-to-be use for a lot of different reasons, and how Lou and Toni turn to these for support. Having been on one myself, they can be both a gift and a curse, but years later I'm still in touch with mums I met on them, and I like the positive tale that Toni and Lou have from these sites. Gemma is brought into the friendship through a real life friendship and realises she has more in common with the older women that she originally thinks.

This book is a must for women that are pregnant, want to be pregnant, have recently had a baby, or had a baby 20 years ago! It is a thoroughly enjoyable, touching read. I had my baby just over a year ago, and this took me back to the baby forums, the madness you go through while pregnant, the paranoia, the mental behaviour and general screeching you do at husbands, just for them breathing. It had me chuckling along, and it took me right back to my pregnancy... almost made me miss it!

The three main characters, Toni, Gemma and Louise, are all very likeable, but all are flawed, all going through pregnancy and their lives the best they can. Gemma is the youngest at 18, Toni 26 and Louise 38, so all very different ages. But I like that, we are all the same when it comes to pregnancy and having babies. The book changes from chapter to chapter focusing in turn on them, and I loved them all and wanted them all and their babies to be fine. Really enjoyable book. Completely recommend it, just make sure you got time to read it or you may lose some sleep trying to finish it in the small hours of the morning.

I really enjoyed this book. The book tells the story of three women Louise, Toni and Gemma. Each section is broken down to follow each women. What I also liked was that it explained the situations they were in before they got pregant.

Louise is the oldest and falls pregant after a one night stand. Toni is married to James and goes to the doctor beause she is having other problems and gets told to hurry up and have a baby as her ovaries are failing her. Then Gemma who is only 18 and wants to get pregant for all the worng reasons.

The women don't know know one another and they all join an online forum and before long they are meeting up and becaming friends. They each have different problems arise and have to deal with them. Also liked the fact that is followed them after they had had their babies and you could see how they faced everyday situations.

Great book and recommend to anyone.

I've never written a review on a book before but I felt compelled to write about this one. It's fantastic! Hours after finishing it, I'm still wondering about the characters and what happened to them next... always a sign of a good book. I don't want to have children but Louise, Toni and Gemma were utterly endearing and I understood their reasons for desperately wanting a child. In fact it gave me a fascinating insight into broodiness and what this must feel like. Gemma's reasoning for wanting a child was heart-breakingly naive but I liked the fact she fell more in love with her baby than her useless boyfriend in the end. What a fantastic author. More please!

Really enjoyed this book. So much so I read it in two days. A perfect book for light Sunday reading or whilst on holiday. There was a moment towards the end where I was in hysterics. (Look out for the white skirt chapter) as well as thinking James was going to do something silly. Really great book looking forward to reading more by Rosie
