    I loved this book, it gave all the serious information but also a month by month diary style take on pregnancy with a very humourous take, it made all the things I was going through totally normal and made me look at the funny side of ancles the size of watermelons (well they felt like that anyway lol).It covers practically every part of pregnancy and also gives details of where to go for further info (some of which is Australian based so not perfect for NZ but closer to us that the American stuff).
    It also covers the first few months of being at home with a little one (which I didn’t manage to read until quite a few months after we had been home, but again totally funny).
    I give this book a big thumbs up – and the book I would most recommend to preggy friends.
