20 laugh-out-loud-funny moms describe their pregnancies, revealing the secretly-guarded details of their conceptions, the great and gross about pregnancy, the truth about childbirth and how their life changed once their little womb-hijacker finally came out.
From the book:
I was 15 when my doctor told me, “Rachael, you will never have children.” I grew up thinking that I was going to be a lonely spinster with cats because my uterus was too scarred. (Rachael Miller)
I gave birth to all three of my sons in the same hospital with the exact same anesthesiologist, whom they are all named after. (J.S.)
Before kids, my husband would fill the tub with bubbles and wash my hair to get me in the mood. But after kids? Well, now my husband fills up the sink with bubbles and washes the dishes to get me in the mood. (Susie Johnson)

They’ve been pregnant more than 50 times in total and they sure do know what they are talking about, or rather writing about as all of them are bloggers and have been entertaining their readers for years.

Get to know them one by one and follow their blogs after the read – it sure is an exciting one as many details have never been released before!
No two stories are the same – we have different nationalities, different backgrounds, different number of children, different approaches to life. What the ladies do have in common is the ability to sit back, reflect and laugh. Not only that – as busy as they are, they managed to find the time to share the details of their conception, pregnancy, childbirth and the brand new life a.c. (after child).
