Pregnancy Sucks for Men: What to Do When Your Miracle Makes You Both Miserable Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Prescriptive and hilarious, Pregnancy Sucks for Men enables the father-to-be to: <BR>- Avoid getting puked on--now that his wife has a superhuman sense of smell<BR>- Offer and prepare the right foods when the woman of his dreams turns into a frightening hungry beast<BR>- Woo his wife into bed with romance, good timing, and by getting the housework done

Review:

"This follow-up to Kimes's first book, Pregnancy Sucks, written with Kimes's husband and targeted to men who may bear witness to a sucky pregnancy, features a large, hairy, presumably male tummy on the cover. Those who don't find the image amusing probably won't enjoy the humor in this survival manual. The Kimeses make a valid point-although it isn't socially acceptable to complain about the vagaries of gestation, it can be a difficult process fraught with pain of the physical and emotional kind-but their approach to dealing with these challenges may be a bit off-putting: 'your wife should be treated like any other savage creature ready to attack.' Snarky comments aside, the book does provide useful information. In addition to explaining how a woman's body changes-and the baby grows-with each month, the book includes worksheets ('How Much Does it Cost to Raise a Baby?'), suggestions ('Must-Have Things for the Delivery Room'), a list of pregnancy-related terms and a resources section."
