This book is about the good, bad and downright ugly of being pregnant and being a mother. It is about the journey of the author - from the time she conceives to motherhood and to everything between and after.

What's so different about this book?

Unlike usual pregnancy books, I'm Pregnant, Not Terminally Ill, You Idiot! does not talk about how the foetus grows, how to have an easy delivery, how to breastfeed, etc. It has fantastic illustrations and is about the real stuff like:

How the typical Indian family, friends and colleagues react when they come to know that a woman is pregnant.
How a pregnant woman is given an overdose of advice by every relative and friend in the world, and how and why colleagues and friends without children react and feel.
What exactly a pregnant woman goes through, which includes gassiness, incontinence, morning sickness, sexual desires, mood swings and much more.
The hard truth and politics behind normal and Caesarean deliveries, and breastfeeding.
Treatment at work after mothers return from their maternity leave.
Hilarious accounts of how men try to (or don't try to) take care of babies and how to find a good baby maid.
What a mother goes through - physically and emotionally - after the baby arrives.
Includes real-life stories of many other pregnant women and new mothers.

The writing is frank and loaded with humour. This book is those who want to what it's REALLY like to have a baby!
