Description

Hilarious-and sound-advice on surviving 40 weeks without a drop! When you find out you're pregnant, you've officially crossed the line from "Drinking for One" to "Eating for Two." Yes, the prospect of 40 long, long weeks without a single cocktail is enough to strike dread into the heart and fear into the belly of even the most moderate of drinkers. The Newly Non-Drinking Girl's Guide to Pregnancy is a hilarious and honest look at how to survive pregnancy without alcohol. From practical information on alcohol and pregnancy to fun advice on surviving birthdays, bachelorettes and barbecues sans cocktails and finding sobriety support at home, this is the perfect book for any party girl who finds herself pregnant. By including 50 fun recipes for mocktails to complete every month along the way, authors Jackie Rose and Dr. Caroline Angel give newly pregnant women insight into how to survive-if not thrive-while going the full 40 without alcohol.
