mccarthy has a really funny/blunt way of expressing all the joys and hardships of pregnancy. it's definitely not a book to read if you want hard medical facts, and mccarthy doesn't claim to be giving any or claim to be a doctor. but it is a really quick read guaranteed ...to make you laugh and feel better that you are not the only woman out there that has experienced the things you are going to experience throughout your pregnancy.
i read this after i had read a few serious pregnancy/childbirth books, and i'm glad i did. it gave my brain a much needed break, and gave me a good laugh (though she did make me blush much more than she made me laugh).
