5 Books that will have you laughing through pregnancy

Are you currently pregnant, yet find yourself completely turned off from reading informational pregnancy books?  Sometimes, you just want to be able to read a book, and relate to the funny parts of pregnancy (fart jokes, anyone?). If reading light-hearted books is more your thing, the below list will be sure to tickle both you, and your partner’s,  funny bone.

For Mommy:

Belly Laughs by Jenny McCarthy: Who better to keep it real about pregnancy than a former-playmate? She’s blunt, and sometimes crude, and is just what the doctor ordered to keep you laughing through a trimester.

The Girlfriends Guide to Pregnancy by Vicki Iovine: The Wall Street Journal renowned Vicki Iovine as the “Carrie Bradshaw of pregnancy.” If you strive to make it through your pregnancy as chic as possible, pick up this book, written by a mom of 4.

The Pregnancy Instruction Manual by Sarah Jordan and David Uftberg MD: This book isn’t your average pregnancy book. It answers real life pregnancy questions such as, “How do I ward off the unwanted tummy-touch era?” It’s a good mixture of usable knowledge, and humor.

For Daddy:

Be Prepared: A Practical Handbook for New Dads by Jeannie Hayden: With advice topics such as, “How to construct an emergency diaper out of a towel, a sock, and duct tape” and “How to stay awake (or at least upright) at work,” it is sure to give Daddy-to-be some funny reading material that he won’t loathe. And to make you feel better, it’s not all jokes, there is some really great advice he is sure to pick up on.

What To Expect When Your Wife is Expanding: A Reassuring Month-By Month Guide For The Father-To-Be, Whether He Wants Advice Or Not by Thomas Hill: Pregnancy is also a confusing time for your significant other. This guide updates him monthly on what’s occurring with your body  and gives him valuable advice such as, “What to buy, and how many” and “What not to say during the three stages of labor.”

    I bought a bunch of humor books for a new mom, including “Go the F to Sleep”, “One Child Too Many” and”K is for Knifeball”. It takes a lot of levity to make it through parenthood!
