Oops! How to Rock the Mother of All Surprises: A Positive Guide to Your Unexpected Pregnancy Reviews
So, my baby isn't actually an 'oops' baby, but this is nevertheless the book i relate to the most by far. 90% of non-medical/casual pregnancy books read like Cosmo or Ladies' Home Journal or something, but I am so not interested in that style of writing. As such I'm very skeptical of any book for pregnant woman that isn't by a medical professional of some kind. But I've long been an admirer of Tracy Moore's articles on Jezebel, especially her articles on motherhood and parenting. This book did not disappoint, and it's good to see her writing talents hold up in a longer format. I would recommend this book as a primer to anyone who is newly pregnant, but doesn't want to attack something as hefty as Mayo Clinic's guide to a healthy pregnancy just yet.
I read this book because I enjoy Tracy's regular column on Jezebel, "Motherload". Though I've never been pregnant, most of my friends have, so I have a pretty good base of understanding for what it's like. Or so I thought. Apparently I know nothing about pregnancy & all of my friends & family have been holding out on me. This book is hilarious. At 33, Tracy found herself married & unexpectedly pregnant. She takes us on her journey through pregnancy, labor & delivery, postpartum & the early stages of motherhood. She describes, in great detail, all of these stages, which is equal parts informative, terrifying & side-splitting. She does something I really appreciate, she highlights her marriage & offers lots on insight on how to be a good spouse, which is helpful regardless of whether or not you're pregnant. She also offers a lot of real talk pertaining to a woman's body post-baby. As I continue to watch friend after friend freak the eff out over what their body is like after pregnancy, I very much appreciate Tracy encouraging women to accept their new, post-baby bodies. It's a message, I feel, can't be expressed enough. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this uproarious book & have, & will continue to, recommend it to all of my friends. Five stars!
If you are “very pregnant” and have already wet yourself reading Ophelia Austin-Small’s book Surprise Motherhood, you will need a second pair of Depends because of the laughing you’ll doing reading this book. How can a book that so painlessly gives good advice be so funny and realistic simultaneously? I suspect it’s the author’s journalistic background shining through.
My pregnancy was planned, but this book was recommended to me. It was a fun light read but not particularly informative.
““I came to parenting the way most of us do—knowing nothing and trying to learn everything.”I absolutely loved this book!
