Publisher's Summary

The fourth book in Dawn Dais's 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's 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 readers' 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.

Depressing

I thought this book would be funny and somewhat informative given the title. However it was none of the above. This woman in her God awful voice complains while explaining every bad thing ever about pregnancy. NO helpful tips, nothing positive, just all the bad. I had to stop listening, it was extremely depressing and down right stupid.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Researching Pregnancy

I preordered this book and listened to it in one full day while on my honeymoon. We are planning to get pregnant and Dawn did a great job keeping me engaged. I throughly enjoyed the humor and appreciated the curse words every now and then. A great read/listen for women and partners.

Very Little Useful Information

This book contains very little useful information, and what little information it contains is covered up by a barrage of sarcasm and jokes, which really aren’t all that funny. This, from someone who breathes sarcasm. The jokes were lame, overdone, and excessive. The book could be cut in half simply by removing all this noise. While a little personality should expressed by an author, users of this book are actually trying to learn some things about pregnancy. If there are any expectant fathers, do not waste your time. While the book rightfully so focuses on the mother-to-be, there is a laughable amount of focus on the father-to-be.

Keep you entertained

Such a fun, light hearted book about pregnancy. I was laughing the whole time. Not yet pregnant, just starting to do some research as it’s coming soon. I highly recommend!
