Book Reviews, part 2

March 24, 2007
Filed under: Baby Dunbar, Blog — Kerry @ 8:51 am

I read “The Girlfriend’s Guide to Pregnancy” which I picked up during our loooong airport layover coming back from vacation.  The author is very funny, to the point where I would laugh out loud while reading it, drawing stares no doubt from the people around me.  It covers lots of pregnancy topics, from conception to post-delivery and addresses a lot of the concerns pregnant women might have.  It encourages readers with a bun in the oven not to get a radical new haircut in the third trimester as you will still look incredibly pregnant, but will now have a pixie haircut to top it off.  It also had good advice about pregnancy clothing (share with your friends).  While not quite as thorough as some of the 400 page pregnancy guides, it’s still well worth reading.

Scariest-looking pregnancy book on the shelf?  ‘The Complete Organic Pregnancy’.  I only read the back cover of it and then had to put it down.  It has sections on how to avoid polluting you and your baby with your face cream and makeup (What?  Lead-based makeup went out of style 200 yrs ago, what else could it be?) as well as a lot of info about toxins in food and pretty much everything around us.  I already have enough paranoia about fish – is this the fish with lots of omega3’s? or lots of mercury? – so I think this is not the right book for me.
