For many women‚ the emotional aspects of pregnancy are far more taxing than the physical ones. There's no shortage of studies into the health of the foetus and the physical state of its incubator. But how women FEEL during pregnancy is largely ignored. It's just pregnancy‚ right? They'll cope. Unfortunately‚ not everyone does.
This wise and very funny book is the result of hundreds of interviews with sympathetic professionals and pregnant chicks generous enough to reveal how they stayed sunny-side up despite spending nine months in tracky daks the size of North Korea. It is the essential survival guide to staying sane during pregnancy - a time when complete strangers think it's OK to grope your groin‚ when it's tempting to eat not just for two but for three or four‚ and when even the most ginormous underpants fit better back-to-front.
ATTACK OF THE 50-FOOT HORMONES also includes Emma Tom's hilarious pregnancy diary which reveals what happened after the former motorbike-riding rock chick was unexpectedly diagnosed with an SLF (which turned out to be ridiculous medical jargon for a Single Live Foetus).
