The Whole Nine Months
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
She’s pregnant, which means you’re pregnant. Not literally of course, but you’ll be slap bang in the middle of nine months of flying hormones, back rubs, and too much talk of childbirth - you’re in for the ride of your life. And you're going to be a dad. Fatherhood is just around the corner – are you ready? Most pregnancy books are for the mother but this one is just for you, the new father. We guide you through nine months of joy, excitement, fear, lots of big words, and bigger boobs, so that you emerge from this emotional rollercoaster ready for anything your new born baby will throw at you (which will either be sick, poo or regurgitated milk). From how your baby grows month by month to how to support your partner (it’s the little things that count, we tell ourselves), Pregnancy for Men is your survival guide to the whole nine months.
As a man who found out this time last week that his Wife was 6 weeks pregnant, I sheeeet myself.....in a good way. 1 week later, I just finished reading this book.
There are a lot of "What to expect when you're expecting" pregnancy books around and the majority of them are geared for women. The title of this book suggests the same content but from a Man's point of view....and it delivers. Unlike a lot of books, this book is written by a British author with lots of UK related references so is ideal for the Brits - but don't let that put you off if you're not.
It's funny, informative and written in a way that we men understand. No bullsheeet, witty and to the point. I doubt anything will prepare you to become a Dad for the first time and whilst this book won't either, it goes a long way to making sure you, as a Dad, know what's coming, what your Wife will go through and what *you* need to do - which let's face it, is what we're looking for.
I read this back to back and will now use this for reference as the months progress.
