Publisher's Summary

The fourth book in Dawn Dais' popular Sh!t No One Tells You series offers "been there, freaked out about that" advice for expectant parents

The fourth title in Dawn Dais' popular parenting series, The Sh!t No One Tells You About Pregnancy is quite possibly the funniest and most heartfelt yet. After all, pregnancy is not all about scanning Pinterest for baby shower themes and registering for ironic onesies, and sometimes the less flattering aspects of gestation have a way of dimming a bit of that so-called pregnancy glow.

Not to worry! Dawn is here, ready to shepherd you through the experience of one human body taking on the task of growing another human body. (Spoiler alert: It ain't always pretty.)

Dawn covers it all, sharing expert lists, tips, warnings, and even a series of parent-training workouts designed to increase listeners' tolerance to the various indignities of parenthood, like peeing with an audience and surviving an afternoon in Chuck E. Cheese.

The Sh!t No One Tells You About Pregnancy is a must-have guide for expectant moms (and their partners!) who are looking for some counsel, comedy, and camaraderie during their ultimate countdown to parenthood.

Not Helpful

I wish I hadn't used my credit to purchase this book. The tone is negative and it's filled with unfunny cliches that many first-time mothers are already hearing. If it's a surprise to you that babies are messy and time consuming, then go for it. If you are looking for any additional insight/information, skip it.

Nice Change

I preferred her more realistic approach to what’s happening during pregnancy. There were parts where I was laughing out loud. I especially liked the parts where she would read what other moms and their partners thought about different subjects. This book gives you permission to relax and enjoy the nine months of just you or you and your partner before a baby comes into the picture.

perfectly sarcastic and heartwarming

loved this book! She does a marvelous job talking about pregnancy in a sarcastic and light way. I also really enjoyed the partner corners, I really valued having that perspective and I am going to have my husband listen to more than a few of them.

Every Pregnant Woman Should Listen to This

Informative and REAL! I didn’t feel like I was just being bombarded with more technical information. This book helped me relax but also know the most important things to consider throughout each phase. I loved hearing from the spouses of those who are pregnant!

Not for the natural minded mama

I’m a pretty sarcastic person but couldn’t find the humor in the negativity. Wasn’t funny. Just awkward. I felt myself feeling sorry for the writer. Very uninformative, so many better books out there.

Made me laugh

Good tips and tricks. It made me laugh throughout the book. We are expecting our first in October, so I am heavy in to researching before our due date :) I would recommend this title to Mom’s who are expecting.

No

Kept fast forwarding in hopes it would get better. It didn’t. Eventually had to end the torture and turn it off.

Wasn’t worth my time

I didn’t learn anything from this book. I’m looking to be educated and all she did was make a joke out of it.

Fantastic listen

I loved this book so much. I’m currently experiencing my first pregnancy and am terrified. It was nice to hear from different people that were interviewed throughout the book on different situations. I laughed out loud quite frequently and it was a nice, easy listen while being informative.
