Yep, up the duff- take it or leave it. Some of the humour was relevant, spot on. Other parts werent. Pretty much like any book, really!
Cant remember my pregnancy book for DD, I lent it to a friend however I have found this 2nd pregnancy book very interesting that I bought off the book depository:http://www.bookdepository.com/Second-Pregn...n/9781904760818
They also have the most brilliant pregnancy journal- you write down all your symptoms, experiences scans etc and there is space to take photos. I took one every month in a bikini (our eyes only!) so we could see how my body grew. I still look through it and now with no 2 have referred back to it to see if my symptoms are the same!
I couldnt recommend it more highly, and have also given it as a gift:http://www.bookdepository.com/My-Pregnancy...e/9781846013379
Also from my local library, we borrowed and read Cheers to Childbirth:http://www.cheerstochildbirth.com.au/
It has been written for Dads and is funny, to the point and we got a lot of birthing ideas out of it. My DH doesnt really read books, so each night we read a few pages of it together and I made notes that we thought would be relevant to our birth. Some are really touching stories and I always got emotional reading them out to him!
As for parenting books, I barely had time to read information from the hospital, so I cant help much there!
Its pretty overwhelming, so I made a conscious effort to stick with information from 2 websites (EB and Huggies) and 2 books (up the duff and the other one I cant remember). Otherwise my head would explode with the overload of information! And definitely NO GOOGLING SYMPTOMS!!!
