Guide Review - The Newly Non-Drinking Girl's Guide to Pregnancy

This book was a lot of fun to read. It was a bit tongue in cheek and silly in some spots, so if you don't have a sense of humor - avoid it. The drink recipes were fun. I personally tried the Chocolate Maternitini and the Mother Earth.

This is a great way to add some spice to a baby shower or other company party. I loved the tips on how to hide your pregnancy while not drinking - great advice there.

There is also a lengthy section on how to get a "fetus friendly" buzz. It includes four ways to feel great without drinking.
