From the author of the award-winning blog Snarky Mommy comes a book that will make every woman who has ever been pregnant pee with laughter (not that thatas hard). Wearing her highest heels and hottest pregnancy jeans, Amy Sprenger marches into her doctoras office, beverage in hand, ready to finally see whether her baby is a boy or a girl. Sure, sure, this appointment is supposed to be about checking the health of the baby, but everyone whoas ever been there knows itas really about looking for what lays, or doesnat lay, between the legs. So when the doctor tells her she has an incompetent cervix, Amy becomes immediately offended on behalf of her reproductive organs. Is that just a politically correct way of saying her cervix sucks? Unfortunately, as sheas soon to learn, itas a lot more than that. The only way to keep that baby from falling out on the sidewalk (probably in front of Starbucks) is for her doctor to stitch her cervix closed and for Amy to stay in bed for the next four months. Four months that are carefully detailed in this amemoir.a A memoir that, while basically true, has been embellished with Amyas signature brand of humor and hilarity. With more time off than a castoff contestant on qThe Bachelor, q Amy takes pen to paper and settles in for the ride. But instead of sitting around eating bonbons, sheas popping hypertension drugs to stave off preterm labor. And complications? Oh, sheas got your complications. Sheas gut-rehabbing her house. Her mother moves in to care for her. Her husband takes a amancationa while sheas stuck in the hospital. And every time she has a contraction, sheas convinced itas The Big One. Living by the adage that laughter is the best medicine, Amy fumbles her way through a series of sometimes serious and usually embarrassing situations. And just to be clear, using a bedpan qualifies as both serious and embarrassing. qAmy Sprenger's foray into factual fiction is a hilarious (and sometimes poignant) look at high-risk pregnancy from her view at the end of the bed. Sprenger offers a fresh and funny voice that readers will love!q -- New York Times bestselling author Jen LancasterDoes this woman ever go home? Ia#39;ve seen ...
