Pregnancy Sucks, by Joanne Kimes and Sanford A. Tisherman, M.D., gives you real solutions to all the anying and somewhat awkward situations that can unexpectedly arise during your pregnancy. Did you kw that:* Farm-fresh butter, or petroleum jelly, works just as well for your itchy belly as a fancy and overpriced pregnancy product?* If you're put on bedrest, walkie-talkies will allow you to yell at your husband- matter where he is in the house!* Surrounding yourself with regular pillows (don't forget to swipe your husband's) is just as good as buying a special large pregnancy pillow -and more adaptable to giving support where you personally need it?* Doing the hokey pokey, or taking a warm shower, can ease Braxton Hicks contractions? Full of insight, hilarity, and practical solutions on every page, Pregnancy Sucks shows how, through it all, you can survive with your health, dignity, and sanity intact!
