Pregnancy Sucks : What to Do When Your Miracle Makes You Miserable
Pregnancy Sucks, by Joanne Kimes and Sanford A. Tisherman, M.D., gives you real solutions to all the annoying and somewhat awkward situations that can unexpectedly arise during your pregnancy. Full of insight, hilarity, and practical solutions on every page, Pregnancy Sucksshows how, through it all, you can survive-with your health, dignity, and sanity intact!
As the title indicates, Kimes wanted a child, but she did not enjoy pregnancy. Using the month-by-month format common to pregnancy books, she emphasizes the discomforts associated with impending motherhood rather than fetal development and newborn care. Morning sickness, gas, mood swings, and back pain are among the "joys" awaiting pregnant women. The author offers a few hints for dealing with these along with advice about choosing a physician: find one with good magazines in the waiting room and a liberal attitude about using medications. She does provide a resource list that is current. Women will learn more and get better advice from two classics: Heidi Murkoff and others' What To Expect When You're Expecting or Dr. Miriam Stoppard's Conception, Pregnancy, and Birth. This is an optional purchase unless your collection needs a book about whining.-Barbara M. Bibel, Oakland P.L. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
