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!

I absolutely LOVED this book! I read it a while ago, when I was pregnant. It is full of life, and reading through her experiences made me feel better about my own as a first time mother. I would highly recommend! :)

I absolutely LOVED this book! Her stories made me laugh so hard I cried, because what she wrote about was just so true! Any pregnant woman should definitely read this book if they need a break from all the heavy pregnancy books out there. Also, the ending was really touching.

When I brought this book home, my husband attacked it in 30 seconds, and finished reading it in 2 hours. We both enjoyed the humor, cause sometimes that's what you need to get through the 9 months! Also its good to know that Hollywood celebraties with access to the best medical care arent immune from what women in Richmond Hill go through :-)

Hilarious and really honest, but don't count on this for much solid information.
