"American Baby"

A lighthearted, helpful, and brutally honest book from someone who understands. You'll laugh and learn about what to aid (perms, maternity clothing stores), what generally can't avoid be avoided (hemorrhoids, a tendency to worry about everything), and what not to be afraid of (if you're having amniocentesis, that big needle; turning into your mother). And if you feel as though you've embarked on a nine-month-long ride on a roller coaster, the chapter called "Pregnancy Insanity" will reassure you that you're normal.



"Newsweek" Leaving the medical domain to the medical professionals, Iovine focuses on the practical, social, emotional, and physiological aspects of pregnancy....Iovine and her gaggle of Girlfriends are ready with reassuring and frequently irreverent advice.

"USA Today" With great humor and frankness, Iovine addresses the topics most women talk about only with their best friends.

"People" A laugh-out-loud primer for unseasoned moms-to-be.

Kurzbeschreibung

The practical, comforting, honest, and hilarious bestseller for moms-to-be, with more than one and a half million copies in print!



Your doctor gives you medical advice. Your mother buys you baby clothes. But who can give you the real skinny when you’re pregnant?



Your girlfriends, of course—at least, the ones who’ve been through the exhilaration and exhaustion, the agony and ecstasy of pregnancy. Four-time delivery room veteran Vicki Iovine talks to you the way only a best friend can—in the book that will go the whole nine months for every mother-to-be. In this revised and updated edition, get the lowdown on all those little things that are too strange or embarrassing to ask, practical tips, and hilarious takes on everything pregnant.

What really happens to your body—from morning sickness and gas to eating everything in sight—and what it’s like to go from being a babe to having one.

The Many Moods of Pregnancy—why you’re so irritable/distracted/tired/lightheaded (or at least more than usual).

Staying Stylish—You may be pregnant, but you can still be the fashionista you’ve always been (or at least you don’t have to look like a walking beachball)—wearing the hippest designers and proudly showing off your bump.

Pregnancy is Down To a Science—from in vitro fertilization to scheduled c-sections, there are so many options, alternatives, and scientific tests to take that being pregnant can be downright confusing!

And much more! For a reassuring voice or just a few good belly laughs, turn to this straight-talking guide on what to really expect when you’re expecting.

This is an OK book, with interesting tips and humor that I not always appreciated. I somehow get the feeling this is a book more suitable for older pregnant ladies, since I have not been able to connect and identify myself with many of the situations described by the author. The part about exercise is very biased and honestly it does a deservice in terms of healthy habits. The attitude regarding husbands/partners was also not appreciated. Anyways, not my cup of tea, but certainly appeals to other audiences since it remains a best-selling book...

I bought a couple of pregnancy books and I must say this book is just great! For sure it is not a medical encyclopedia (and does not mean to be) but I could not put it down because it was written so well and was so fun and informative! In those first months when you don't yet talk to anyone about your preganncy, this is a lifesaver as it really feels it is your girlfriends talking to you! It also tells you all sorts of things no doctor would unless you asked (and if it is your first pregnancy you do not).

A must have if you wish to approach pregnancy in a fun manner :-)

I will for sure buy it as a gift for any girlfriends who are pregnant!

1.0 von 5 Sternen Humorous, somewhat helpful book written by a woman with serious body issues and low opinion of men 7. April 2013
Von Courtney Upfer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Good stuff: She gives really good advice on certain topics such as not to be embarrassed or afraid of wasting your doctor's time. She helps explain how your relationship with your OB is very different from any other doctor. She is also very reassuring and helps you prepare for any number of gross and/or embarrassing issues that may come up during your pregnancy or delivery.

Bad Stuff: Oh boy does she have body issues!!!! There is barely a topic in the entire book that she doesn't relate back to the fact that you are fat and disgusting when you are pregnant. She herself went from a size four to a ten so she was hardly obese but she will simply not stop harping on how unattractive you are when you are pregnant. She also goes out of her way to let you know that not only she thinks pregnant women are by nature gross to look at but that your husband thinks you look gross. She describes her own husband as only having sex with her when she was bigger out of pity. She does include one brief blurb that some men might like the pregnant body shape and find it a turn on but it is written in a style that leaves no doubt that she finds this to be a rare and laughable quirk that some men might have. If she hasn't already managed to make you feel self conscience about your changing body there is a paragraph about how some men tend to cheat on their wives while they are pregnant if they aren't up for sleeping with their husbands or if their husbands can't stomach sleeping with a pregnant woman. Not just insulting to women but she reveals a very low opinion of men as well. Reducing them to bumbling creatures who are disinterested in their wives apart from a creature to have sex with and to have to put up with if she gets emotional.

Oh, and if you thought that maybe instead of getting neurotic about your increasing size and you would focus on your health, here she comes to shame you out of exercising. She seems to take this really personally. Only crazy people exercise. And if you exercise and something bad happens with your pregnancy you will always be haunted that you harmed your baby by exercising.

Overall:I know this book has been revised over the years but I think it needs a complete rewrite for the next generation (by a new author).

1.0 von 5 Sternen No girlfriend of mine... 19. August 2012
Von deborah - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I was reading this book (a gift from a friend) while 5 months pregnant and at the gym on an elliptical trainer. It's not well-written and not my sense of humor so I'd been skipping around and did find some parts informative. I was absolutely floored, however, when I read her reasons to avoid exercise when pregnant. Are you kidding me? No ob/gyn today would recommend this unless health problems exist with mother or baby and/ or a pregnancy is high risk. Totally irresponsible to 1) ignore that study after study shows exercise is, in fact, beneficial and recommended for pregnant and nursing women along with the majority of our obese general population and 2) try to induce guilt about what could happen to your baby if you don't follow her moronic, baseless advice.

I wrapped up 25 minutes on the elliptical and then headed into a Cardio/weight class for an hour, tossing this book in the trash as I went. Never felt better!

1.0 von 5 Sternen This book is dated and ridiculous 24. September 2009
Von Pandme01 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is ridiculous. There are a few good one-liners but do you really want to waste your money for a couple funny lines? The author is obsessed about her weight (gasp! She got all the way up to a SIZE 10! The world is ending!) and silly things like pedicures and stretch marks. I don't get why people say this book "tells it like it is." Why, because she mentions gas and morning sickness? Or does everyone "capitulate" to their husbands' sexual demands so that he won't run out and have an affair? What planet is this woman living on? Oh, yeah, Planet Playboy Bunny and her Supermodel Friends! I wouldn't want to be friends with any of these people.

The chapter on exercise is downright false, saying don't exercise because you could a. cause a miscarriage and b. you'll get fat anyway. Oh, and you won't look cute in your leotard. I haven't worn a leotard since I took ballet around age 7. (Oh, but if you have a library copy or a used copy, do enjoy the chapter on maternity wear for it's unintended hilarity. It's so dated and so awful it's actually entertaining.) Anyway, in my first pregnancy exercise was a HUGE lifesaver, improving my back pain, fatigue, heartburn and general attitude. But according to this dimwit, it has no benefits unless you're doing it to get skinny. Again, Vicki, you're not my "girlfriend". You're a vapid moron.

We won't even get into her scorn about midwives and natural choices in childbirth. According to her, breastfeeding and formula feeding are basically the same thing. She has seriously got to be kidding me. There is absolutely nothing evidence-based at all in her book, just a lot of snarky rambling about stuff most of us wouldn't have even thought about. Oh, and Vicki, I was down to my prepreg weight and looking fabulous by 5 months postpartum and I really don;t notice any particular loss of "vaginal tone". Way to scare first-timers.

Bottom line? Avoid.

1.0 von 5 Sternen What to expect if you have no self esteem and view pregnancy as a burden 30. August 2009
Von Marian - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
After reading this book as a newly-pregnant woman, I decided that I would view my pregnancy and body in the exact opposite terms of this author. So far, so good. The ten point list on the inner cover tells you everything you need to know. The idea is that pregnancy is painful, disgusting, depressing, fattening, sex-ruining, and uglifying both during and after. And that about covers the whole message of the book. One of the only blessings she says you have to glean is "a visit from the titty fairy". How crass! My boyfriend still jokingly says that to me now! If you are a thinking woman, do what I did and stay away from this book, and keep having sex and feeling beautiful. Don't take the lowest common denominator route and pay attention to drivel like this.

PS, I'm still pg, but I read another review in which the reviewer also ignored the book and has an awesome, fit body after pregnancy!

2.0 von 5 Sternen more like the frenemies' guide... 24. Januar 2013
Von Sondra Abel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
While I appreciate that the author's main theme seems to be succumb to the pregnancy and be nice to yourself, I adamantly disagree with most of her viewpoints. No respectable "girlfriend" would tell you to eat whatever you want because you have nothing else to look forward to while you're pregnant, that your breasts and vagina will not serve to sexually gratify your partner again, and that almost everything about pregnancy will be a horrid experience.
I’d also like to mention that if you're even remotely considering having a natural birth, look elsewhere because she is obviously against the concept: the few natural experiences she cited were not positive, her biggest recommendation is to get an epidural, and throughout the book she constantly sings the praises of all medical professionals—to the point where I’m wondering if she was offered any kind of kick-back on convincing women to schedule cesarean sections.
As someone who has done some actual research, I caution you to reconsider her recommendations for the many unnecessary procedures that have shown to cause more harm than good to women, namely episiotomies and "extra stitches" after birth. If you decide to read this book, definitely heed her one legitimate claim (that she's not a doctor) and be sure to call your mother or a real girlfriend who has gone through childbirth for some support because this book will make you reconsider the whole thing!
