    i legitimately feel bad giving this book only one star but this is the kind of book that my shelf incomprehensibly terrible was made for i read a sample most of the first chapter before i committed thought i knew what i was getting into a memoir of pregnancy told with a very irreverent self deprecating sense of humor sounds great just the sort of thing i love but as things wore on it just got worse worsei don't know what happened i think the author just took things too far it was one of those situations where someone tells a joke you're like eh could be funnier then the joke gets punched up you're like now you're talking then the joke teller is like if they like a little juice they'll like a LOT you're filled with regret for ever laughing at a joke in your life as i get older i am less attracted to hyperbole in writing a little goes a long way this book is nothing BUT hyperbole she jokes about how her ankles became so swollen with pregnancy that they were knocking things over including people of their own accord she jokes about how she went to a prenatal demanded to know how exactly her babies would be born as there didn't seem to be a trapdoor from which they would be released there's just a lot of this sort of thing that would have been so much funnier if it had been dialed way way backi've been pregnant i know first hand that a lot of stuff about pregnancy can be pretty funny it's an absurd experience but i wish she had mixed the jokes with of a story not tried so hard to make every line of the book a punchline i actually had a difficult time finishing the book though i did stick it out to the end i feel like i complain a lot when i read the funny essaymemoir genre of books that the author tries too hard to make the reader laugh but this author seriously takes it to a whole new level it was almost unbearable

    Classic case of trying too hardI wanted to like this book I really did And it was funny at first But it lacked a real story real dialog everything It was just a bunch of run on jokes and run on sentences Honestly I had to make myself finish the book

    Won an autographed copy from the author herself very goofy not at all serious book about pregnancy and all it's foibles I may be too far gone from pregnancy to full appreciate the humor

    I found Paige's blog and after reading only a couple of posts bought her book It's funny that' s for sure but sometimes it was a bit too funny a bit too contrived like she was trying too hard But I could feel that way because I read it all at once If you're looking for a feel good no brain power necessary read this would be a good choice You don't even have to be particularly interested in pregnancy or motherhood I believe to enjoy this one

    I LOVE Paige Kellerman it's no secret Her witty humor slays me and if she can make sugar free ice cream and reuests for maternity leave funny she's obviously got mad crazy talent Just sitting back and eagerly awaiting the next installment in what will surely be a long and incredible writing career

    The cream of the crop of self published books by bloggers is rising to the top Paige is clearly a clever girl sharp writer and savvy author who saved the best stories about her pregnancy for this smart laugh out loud collection of essays about pregnancy
