Book Synopsis

Imagine a man volunteering to trade in his game nights for heart burn and back ache. Good thing there are women around to ensure the survival of the species. This hilarious look at the journey from high heels to high blood pressure, as a jet setter turns into a bed wetter, is what your doctor won't tell you and your own mother may have forgotten in the years since she was blessed by your arrival.

At our first meeting my future father-in-law waited until we sat down in the Thai restaurant, the oblong menus placed in our hands and the waiter was a distance away, tending to other diners, before turning towards me, his eyes glowing. This was the first time we were all seeing each other after his son had proposed to me. "When will I get to hold my first grandchild?"

For my father-in-law and everyone else, I have a question of my own: When will any of you be satisfied?

Why This Book Was Written

Motherhood is the world’s oldest profession and also comes with a mantle of guilt worthy for any faith. The feelings of anxiety and self-doubt, or self-defeating thoughts like but I like to sleep or I don’t want to be a human gas pump are enough to make you wish birth control was available as an energy drink. But you’re not alone.

These were the kinds of worries that were running through my head when we were thinking about taking the plunge, three years into our marriage. And for an Asian couple that’s like dog years which is to say all the relatives were in despair.

I made it through 9 months of pregnancy and then a year of motherhood relatively sane. One of the things I did was keep a private blog so I could remember the ups (and downs) of sustaining another life. Partly for posterity. Partly for friends and readers like you.

After all, misery does love company. Okay, just kidding. But seriously: it is the best decision you will ever make. Though it may take at least six weeks after the delivery (or longer) for this to be confirmed.

If you want the real deal on pregnancy, not the June Cleaver version, check out Mommy But Still Me.
