THE FAT LADIES CLUB met at antenatal classes and became firm friends. This book is the result of their shared experiences of first-time pregnancy. Nothing is left out, so be prepared to read about their emotions, hormones and bodily changes - some humorous, some horrendous - as the ladies get ready for motherhood. Forget the textbook theory and settle down for what amounts to an eavesdrop into their girly chats. Did they get stretch marks - how many, where and what were they like? What happened to their sex lives? Did 'it' feel the same afterwards? When did they first feel like a mum? Other books give you the factual stuff but this alternative guide to the real ins and outs of pregnancy gives advice which all women will learn from.
