Finally a positive blue line or the word `pregnant' confirming your dreams of a new life, sending shivers through your spine with excitement and huge curiosity and fear for the changes ahead. There is the feeling of wonderment and awe of the creation of a new life entwined with the expense of a baby, morning sickness and changing relationships that are combined with a feeling of complete and utter cluelessness. Questions, questions, questions... What do babies need? How do babies grow? Should I return to work or not? What childcare would be best? The book certainly does not claim to be a factual guide, instead offering an honest and reflective account of the roller coaster of emotions experienced by a `normal' non-celebrity mum. A mum who neither has an army of helpers nor a bottom-less pot of money; just an everyday Mummy with bits of drool on her shoulder and sick on her trousers who has had the most amazing fifteen months and wants to share some of these highs and lows from conception to six months.
