The Girlfriends' Guide to Pregnancy

The Girlfriends’ Guide to Pregnancy – only $9.14 on amazon

I loved this book so much.  She told the good and bad, the up and down and unspoken stuff about pregnancy, from a non-doctor, non-professional point of view.  It was a lighthearted read but did give me information that I didn’t know about, and I liked how it told the reader a lot about the emotional aspects of being pregnant.  I also laughed out loud several times during this book.  I loved the writing style!  She went through what happens during the 9 10 months and the birth, and though she had very medicated birth views I still enjoyed reading about it.

This book was complete GO VEGAN propaganda.
  This does not annoy me in general because I like reading propaganda and then take away what I want from it.  What did annoy me, is that it doesn’t let the reader know it’s propaganda before they read it.  It would suck to be a pregnant woman, chompin on hot wings readin this book and read about how you’re killing your baby by eating the crap you’re eating.  It’s a really informative and interesting book, but I think it’s a little irresponsible, or perhaps just inconsiderate of the reader.  Especially since pregnant woman go all psycho hormonal (allegedly).

I learned tons about the meat/milk/fish industry and I absolutely LOVED that this book stated sources.  That’s my main problem with propaganda books…they just say their side of an issue without giving facts/sources/studies etc to prove their points.  These skinny bitches do.  Will I go vegan immediately after reading this book? Hell to the no.  Am I going to give my kids milk after reading this book? Hell to the no.  You pick and choose what you take from any book, ya know.  I already told you before that I think I’ll end up vegan one day though… ::shrug::  John’s going to have a cow.
