Oh, the joys of pregnancy! There's the gasiness, constipation, queasiness, and exhaustion; the forgetfulness, crankiness, and the constant worry. Of course, no woman is spared these discomforts and humiliations, but most are too polite to complain or too embarrassed to talk about them. Not Jenny McCarthy!In "Belly Laughs," the actress and new mother reveals the naked truth about the tremendous mood swings, the excruciating pains, and the unseemly disfigurement that go along with pregnancy. Never shy, frequently crude, and always laugh-out-loud funny, McCarthy covers it all in the grittiest of girlfriend detail. With tips and hilarious musings on morning sickness and hormonal rage, hemorrhoids, pregnant sex, and the torture and sweet relief that is delivery, Belly Laughs is must-read comic relief for anyone who is pregnant, who has ever been pregnant, is trying to get pregnant or indeed, has ever been born!

This book produces some laughs throughout, and does cover some things people don't talk about! But it was also a little unusual...not what was expected. It was more like funny short stories rather than informative (which is what it seemed to be from reading the synopsis). There is also a lot of swearing and detailed stories of sexual things (more detailed than I would have expected!). It seemed like they'd be articles in Cosmo magazine...only about being pregnant!
Funny? Yes. Very informative and useful for learning about pregnancy? Not so much.

Laugh out loud funny. Jenny McCarthy talks about embarrasing things that happen to almost every pregnant woman. It made me not worry so much about all of the weird things that are happening to my body during my first pregnancy. I read it in 2 days, then passed it on to my another of my newly pregnant friends.
