“When you find out that you’re pregnant, you might be like me—someone whose understanding of what pregnancy and parenthood is like was mostly based on Look Who’s Talking. You might not consider ‘maternal’ to be particularly high on the list of qualities you would ascribe to yourself. You might be nervous. I certainly was, mostly because I didn’t know anything, and I wanted to know it all. Right now.”
In Carrying On, lifestyle blogger Jordan Reid weaves real-world fashion, beauty, home décor, and entertaining advice into a deeply personal, candid account of what pregnancy (and new parenthood) is really like. Fearlessly taking on topics that every mom-to-be wrestles with, including judgment from peers (and total strangers), relationship upheavals, intimacy issues, and the greatest worry of all—can you ever truly be “ready” for a change as big as a baby?—Carrying On is a must-read for any woman looking for a humorous (and sometimes heartbreaking) account of what life is like when you’re waiting for your new one to start.
