Sex, drugs and rock and roll. What more does a novel need?

Be prepared to take a trip when reading When Life Was Like a Cucumber by Greg Wyss. This trip will be unlike any one you have ever taken before. That is unless you were in your 20s, living in the late 1960s and early 1970s on the East coast, more

 Laugh Out Loud! Pregnancy
 B00E6TX0GC 9780992637507

 In Laugh Out Loud! Pregnancy,  Author Sharon Irish brings together a wide range of real life experiences from Pregnant Women in the UK and the USA for others to share.  This collection provides insight into what pregnancy is really like and how it is often perceived by the youngest family members.

This eBook brings together pregnant Ladies’ comedy moments for the enjoyment of other expectant Mothers or anyone who has young Children and can relate to pregnancy, and the joys of being a Mother-to-be.  Pregnancy can be tough on body and mind and this eBook’s aim is to provide a little entertainment during what can sometimes be a trying time.

 Laugh Out Loud! Pregnancy is broken down into the following sections:-

  • ‘Pregnancy/baby brain and hormones’ - silly things said and done by Pregnant Women who are regularly controlled by their hormones. 
  • ‘Pregnancy accidents and mishaps’ caused by or related to the pregnancy ‘bump’.
  • Eventful and amusing ‘Doctor’s and Midwives appointments’.
  • The misinformed and often misunderstood ‘Fathers to be.’ 
  • Comments made by young children (‘pregnancy and young children’), some of these being made to their Pregnant Mothers, Family members, or even complete strangers.


The experiences in the eBook highlight the difficulties of pregnancy, how Women cope with both the physical and mental aspects and how others react, often with hilarious consequences.  This eBook emphasises that Kids really do say the funniest things as it includes extracts of real conversations held with young children who are trying to understand the concept of pregnancy and impact the new baby will have on them.


“When I was pregnant, with my first child I read books about pregnancy which were informative, but didn’t really prepare me for the situations I sometimes found myself in.  After experiencing some embarrassing mishaps because of my bump and hearing a few funny stories from other Mothers to be, I was left wanting more. I knew from my own experience that Women can feel down at times during pregnancy, and I can honestly say that hearing about the mishaps of other pregnant ladies helped improve my mood and make light of my own!”


From ‘baby brain and Hormones’:- 

I’ve done a few daft things recently which I blame on “baby brain”. One being after my Dad dropped me home one night I thought I had lost my phone and searched my bag for it. A few minutes later I phoned my Dad (using the lost phone, which had been in my hand the whole time), asking if I had left my phone in his car! His silence was deafening!

From ‘Pregnancy accidents and mishaps’:- 

Every time I sneeze or cough lately I can’t help but pee a little at the same time. My Husband has been tormenting me recently saying every time I do anything, in a really patronising voice “ooh be careful you don’t pee!” and then he laughs at me when I do actually pee, oh the joys of pregnancy!

From ‘Midwives and Doctor’s Appointments’:- 

When I had my ultrasound at 14 weeks, the Tech was trying to measure the baby but it was all curled up, so she started shaking the probe on my tummy to get it to straighten up and she was shouting “EARTHQUAKE, AHHHHHH!” it was so funny and I was trying not to laugh. It surprised the baby and it just moved a little but it still stayed curled up. I wondered at the time if any other Techs used this method!

From ‘Pregnancy and Young Children’:- 

The other day my boyfriend’s Son, who is five, was sitting next to me and decided to lift up my top so he could speak to my baby through my belly button. He said “Hello baby, would you like to share my sandwich? It’s ham!”
