Pregnancy is hardly a laugh a minute but Mumsnetters wring the (very) funny side out of their morning sickness-filled handbags and Trevi fountain-filled bras. I like the fact it covers the whole works - health, tests, weight, birth, sex, breastfeeding etc, down to a 'boot camp' for dads-to-be - and have re-read the development calendar about 10 times so far. I reckon this is the closest you get to your mum/best mates telling you what it's actually like being pregnant and having a baby ie the full-fat version, not the tasteful bump version.

I bought several pregnancy books and this was a good resource with plenty of practical advice. I prefer books with more photos and medical information, so scored 'average' for me. Good anecdotal stories.

I'm currently brewing baby number 3 and think that I'm reasonably savvy when it comes to being pregnant and what it entails. However, all 3 pregnancies have been very different for me, and I'm always open to new ideas and a different point of view.

This book for me has it all - I found it to be an unpatronising and insightful read. I think the stories and experiences from other Mums are a nice touch and some had me laughing out loud. Always nice to know that it's not just you dribbling/worrying/forgetting your own name.

Full of practical info and good to know advice, as well as being an entertaining read, I reckon you could do a lot worse than fork out a few quid for this book.

I loved the Toddlers Guide, which helped through many a toddler tantrum. Now I'm pregnant, 24 weeks, with baby number two.
I couldnt wait for this to be published. My copy arrived this morning with the Postman and it's brilliant. Its full of great and useful advice from other pregnant Mums but equally had me laughing till I cried. It's really refreshing to have a pregnancy guide that uses other Mothers experiences and suggestions.
If I can be more helpful I'd say its the hardback version of their site, funny and imformative all at the same time .

I bought this book whilst pregnant with my first baby. A refreshing, honest and informative guide which says it how it is. Learning from other mum's experiences really struck a chord with me, you know you're not being sold a particular viewpoint or method of child rearing. This book was worth its weight in gold as I recall sitting in the garden in the early stages of labour when my contractions had started, this book had me laughing out loud as my husband read out some particularly hilarious accounts. I now religiously buy this book for every friend who becomes pregnant.

This is a really fab book - the actual book gets five stars, but it doesn't work very well on the Kindle - you can't see all the text in the pullout boxes and pictures (hence three stars).

This has become the best value gift i have ever bought! my girlfriend is constantly referring to it, and is taking solace from other peoples experiences when she is feeling tired, no energy fed up etc.
She has chuckled away at the stories in there and also been getting lots of helpful tips and information from it too.

This book was the best thing I bought while being pregnant.
It gives the most realistic feedback on all things from conception to birth, with some laugh out loud tales from other mum's.
I also appreciated the list of things you really need vs what everyone tries to sell you.
