The Unofficial Guide to Surviving Pregnancy Without Losing Your Mind



Last fall, I was published in the anthology The Unofficial Guide to Surviving Life With Boys (edited by Tiffany and Lyndee from the blog #LifeWithBoys.) I wrote a funny story about the time my son asked me what a vagina looks like. When Tiffany and Lyndee were seeking submissions for a pregnancy anthology, I knew I had a story to tell here as well, albeit on a very different note.


The Unofficial Guide to Surviving Pregnancy Without Losing Your Mind is not your typical pregnancy book. There are stories in here that do talk about crazy pregnancy symptoms and there are some pieces of advice; however, more importantly, this book purposefully highlights just how unique and different each pregnancy actually is. More often than not, if you get pregnant, there will be a "thing" you have to deal with. And your thing, may not be the same as your other pregnant friends.

In this book, you will read the stories of 35 mamas (and one papa) about their "things." The good, the bad, the ugly, the hilarious, the hard, and the ultimately joyful "things" we went through while bringing little babies into this world.




My story is one of the more serious ones. It's about what pregnancy can feel like after multiple miscarriages. I've written about my story in bits and pieces, but this is the first time I've put my whole journey in one place. I cried multiple times writing and editing this piece, and while I will always love the vagina story, this one is much closer to my heart.



The Unofficial Guide to Surviving Pregnancy Without Losing Your Mind will hopefully make readers laugh and smile and understand that while we each experience pregnancy in different ways, we are all in this together.

You can purchase a copy for yourself (or for any upcoming baby showers you need to attend!) on Amazon. It's available on Amazon.com and Amazon.ca.

Thank you always for your ongoing support, and I sincerely hope that whoever finds this book in their hands feels just how much all of the authors are cheering them on.
