Pre-partum Depression Rule #1: Never Wear an Empire-Waisted Dress to a Baby Shower

If you've been asked the question "When are you going to have a baby?" so many times that you feel as though your uterus is starring in a new reality TV show, this hilarious, insightful book is for you.

Carrie Friedman shares her daily struggles with what she calls her "pre-partum depression" from baby lust to panic, and everything in between. Fending off the "dreaded question" from everyone, including her yoga teacher, and navigating the minefield of toddler birthday parties, as well as creating her own faux baby registry under an assumed name, Carrie Friedman captures the process of deciding to have a baby with humor and smarts.

Whether you're uncertain, ambivalent, or scared about having kids, Friedman offers a dose of comfort and a bellyful of laughs in this witty, insightful book.

Carrie Friedman is a freelance writer who lives in Los Angeles with her husband. She graduated from Boston College in 1999 and has since done postgraduate work in writing at UCLA. Carrie has been published in Newsweek, on several websites, and currently writes a column for Mad As Hell Club called "Discount Therapy."

"A very honest, personal, and humorous exploration of one woman's pre- pregnancy journey." --Christie Mellor author of Three-Martini Playdate

"Carrie Friedman is an absolute delight!" -- Jamie Cat Callan, author of French Women Don't Sleep Alone: Pleasurable Secrets to Finding Love

"Pregnant Pause is insightful, touching and incredibly funny. Carrie Friedman finally gives a voice to the non-pregnant and persecuted! If you're looking for refuge from the pressure of prying questions, pet substitution and the call of your biological clock, her sharp wit is a hilarious diversion." -- Adrianne Frost, author of I Hate Other People's Kids
