read of the week: the girlfriends guide to pregnancy

I have just finished my first pregnancy book.  I am 19 weeks pregnant so its about time I finished something for this baby.  I have a full stack of reading material still sitting hot and heavy on my nightstand.  I will try to not fill up my blog with pregnancy, but I know some of you are interested.



So, I read "The Girlfriends Guide to Pregnancy" by Vicki Iovine.  A friend of mine here in Canada let me borrow it.  It was part of the "definite read list" recommended by TheBump.com.  Con, its one ladies' point of view on "what really happens" so you can't take her to seriously.  So, don't go in taking notes or anything like that.  Actually, the entire book is supposed to be read for its comical humor instead of factual information.  Pro,  its lighthearted and easy to read.  Its definitely a breath of fresh air from all the "medical" pregnancy books I'm reading.  She does have a few good pointers.  Her point of view is supposed to be one of a good friends.  However, the lady is crazy.  Everything is a bit exaggerated, so I rolled my eyes a few times.  There are a few parts that I know have been blown out of proportion.  But, all in all it was pretty good and can't complain about reading it.

Others still on my list...
