We're tickled pink to announce the publication of our latest MN book, Mumsnet: the Pregnancy Guide.

Packed with the wit and wisdom of many a Mumsnetter, it covers every stage of the hormone-sodden path to parenthood with the kind of tell-it-like-it-is honesty you're all known for.

And it's illustrated by our very own, very talented Boco.

You can read all about it here, have a quick dekko at Justine's foreword here - and, of course, order it here.

Buy a copy! Tell your friends! And tell us what you think!

Grrr - I have 6 weeks left of the final pregnancy!

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 02-Sep-09 17:38:34

Plenty of time to read it, Flamesparrow!

AND review in on Amazon...

Nice plug in the Guardian today smile

I had it on pre-order from Amazon <preens>, so have had my copy for the past week. Very pleased with it so far - good balance between sensible, grounding advice and lol quotes (my favourite section of quotes is the 'what childbirth's like' ).

Well done MN (and everyone who contributed).

Thanks saltyseadog, feel free to review on Amazon!

I saw the plug in the Guardian too - didn't realise it was an excerpt from the MN book til it mentioned 'ladygarden' and I had a lightbulb momentgrin

Flamesparrow Wed 02-Sep-09 22:12:05

am i in it? blushgrin

It is Flamesparrow - page 57 - though not in enormous detail it must be said. We actually had to cut around 20% of the book in the end because it was too huge - so much to cover in pregnancy.

LuluMaman IIRR you feature rather a lot!

LuluMaman Wed 02-Sep-09 22:30:41

in that case i'llbuy it,especially if my sex and nipple twiddling advice has made it in !!

JustineMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 02-Sep-09 22:35:38

What do you take us for, imbeciles? How could we omit nipple twiddling!

LuluMaman Wed 02-Sep-09 22:36:30

thank you saint justine of MN towers..

The excerpt in the Guardian was lovely.

sounds fab hopefully won't need it for a while..

Flamesparrow Thu 03-Sep-09 07:47:50

as long as it gets a mention I am happy. Far too many of the books never even touch on it.

JustineMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 03-Sep-09 11:06:24

Think of it as a childbirth book LadyStealthPolarBear - nearly half of it about that smile.

LuluMaman Thu 03-Sep-09 11:35:09

TigerFeet Thu 03-Sep-09 11:38:53

Due in 9 days... might get it anyway, it'll look nice next to my MN Toddlers book on the bookshelf.

When's the MN Guide to Babies coming out? When my baby turns 2?? gringrin

well since you ask Lulumama
Justine - I've just noticed I advertised my sling in the For Sale - Books section, I know I'm not meant to relist within a certain time, but would it be OK if I moved it? If not I'll just post it again in a few weeks.
