Reading The Second Nine Months...

The Second Nine Months:
One woman tells the truth about becoming a mom. Finally.

Vicki Glembocki
Da Capo/Lifelong Books (Jan. 6, 2008)
(Division of Perseus Book Group)
Hardback 264 pgs.

I read-and finished-this book over the weekend. I didn't intend to, it just... happened. It was just so hard to put down.

Glembocki lays it all bare: doubts about breastfeeding, maternal instinct and bonding; the realization that you are somebody's mother and how that particular word can sound so strange coming from your own mouth, the transition of who you used to be and who you are now isn't always so smooth and peachy-keen.

It is, indeed, "irreverent, funny and brutally honest"; a book that lives up to its description.

This is something (whether she'll admit to it or not) any mother can relate to. If not the whole book, at least a chapter, or two....or three.
