Pregnancy Sucks for Men: What to Do When Your Miracle Makes You Both Miserable

This follow-up to Kimes's first book, Pregnancy Sucks, written with Kimes's husband and targeted to men who may bear witness to a sucky pregnancy, features a large, hairy, presumably male tummy on the cover. Those who don't find the image amusing probably won't enjoy the humor in this survival manual. The Kimeses make a valid point--although it isn't socially acceptable to complain about the vagaries of gestation, it can be a difficult process fraught with pain of the physical and emotional kind--but their approach to dealing with these challenges may be a bit off-putting: ""your wife should be treated like any other savage creature ready to attack."" Snarky comments aside, the book does provide useful information. In addition to explaining how a woman's body changes--and the baby grows--with each month, the book includes worksheets (""How Much Does it Cost to Raise a Baby?""), suggestions (""Must-Have Things for the Delivery Room""), a list of pregnancy-related terms and a resources section.
