Easy reading (breaks you in before reading serious books)
on 12 November 2015
I have mixed feelings about this book. After discovering that I was pregnant this was one of the first books that I picked up and decided to read, as I thought it would break me in gently to some of the more medical / serious pregnancy books. I really enjoyed reading about Myleens journey, I enjoyed the easy writing style and her frankness about the up's and down's she experienced. I really felt that there were things that I could identify with, however there were other elements that I really couldn't. There were bit's in the book about Myleen being sent the entire M&S maternity range / shoes and choosing a pram when every company under the sun was sending her freebees which I was quite envious of. It's definately the right thing for her to write about these things, as to be fair they were part of her life but I think this is where the book fell down a bit for me. I think this is a nice easy read and it helped me to get my head around expecting my own lovely baby, but it's not really that educational in terms of pregnancy information.
