Up the Duff

By Kaz Cooke

This is my personal favourite pregnancy book and the one I bought myself (all those years ago now!).  It is funny, insightful and has all the information you need, together with loads of funny stories about being ‘Up the Duff’.  Kaz Cooke gives you the up-to-date lowdown on pregnancy, birth and coping when you first get home. No bossy-boots rules, just lots of cartoons and the soundest, sanest, wittiest advice you’ll ever get. Everything you need to know about the scary parts, the funny parts and your private parts.

Belly Laughs

By Jenny Nut-Bag Bat-Shit-Crazy McCarthy

Okay so Jenny McCarthy is a nut bag – especially her stance on vaccination (don’t believe a word she says!).  BUT – her book on pregnancy is hilarious if you can look past the fact you should not listen to her for any information on diseases. She is funny, but an idiot.
