A book so hilarious it could have only been written by a comedian
Up the Duff by Kaz Cooke, Book Review
An hilarious journal that all pregnant women must read. From conception to labour, Cooke shares with you all the highly intimate details of what it is like to be pregnant and give birth. From skin tags, to getting fat and constantly needing to wee, you will join Cooke on her pregnancy journey.
Helpfully chaptered according to week of pregnancy, this book is best read in conjunction with your own stage of pregnancy. It is a shame, however, that each chapter isn’t longer so that more could be read each week.
Great insight, great tips and great comedic relief when you’re puking your guts out for nine months.
Want to know what pregnancy is really like? Buy this book.
Hilarious, truthful and honest, chaptered week by week, beginning of each chapter provides summary of what happens in your pregnancy that week and a ruler to measure how big your bub is, a list of support services by state and topic in the back, and provides much needed relief during those tough pregnancy weeks.
Wish the chapters were longer (although there’s only so much you can put into each week, I get it!).
“Today I officially let myself go. I spend the entire day dressed in a wheat bag and moccasins, and I haven’t washed my hair since Wednesday. I know the Oprah theme music by heart.” (Week 23, page 221)
