"Adriana Bourgoin's NINE MONTHS IN AUGUST should be a required companion to the standard childbirth guides. She navigates the emotional and physical changes wrought by pregnancy with excruciatingly honest and hilarious detail, providing some much needed comic relief at a not so funny time of life." ---Susan Coll, author of Acceptance

"With sharp humor and an unflinching eye, Adriana Bourgoin shows us that pregnancy changes more than just a woman's body - it can upend her entire existence.  Nine Months in August has it all: the "is-he-ready-for-fatherhood" husband, the career uncertainty, friends with kids who talk to you in Mommy Voice, the friends without kids who don't talk to you at all, and, lest we forget, grandparents-to-be gone right off deep end. This book reminds us, though, that ultimately, happiness lies somewhere underneath that upset apple cart."

- Stacie Cockrell, Cathy O'Neill and Julia Stone,
co-authors of Babyproofing Your Marriage

Gretchen Fox is a planner and list-maker by nature, perfectly suited to her job as a hotel catering manager. And in her cautious, look-before-you-leap way, Gretchen was waiting until the time was absolutely perfect before she had a baby.

Her body, however, had other ideas. Now Gretchen is discovering what a big difference a little blue line can make — to her marriage, her career, and her state of mind. As Gretchen spends sleepless nights pondering all the reasons she's not ready to become a mother, she starts to question every other area of her life too. Even her relationship with Meredith and Louisa, her closest friends since their days together at Smith College, undergoes a sudden dramatic shift.

As she's inducted into a new world of anti-motion sickness wristbands, emergency supplies of ginger ale, and hormone-fueled crying jags, Gretchen realizes that all the planning in the world couldn't have prepared her for the wonderful, extraordinary journey that lies ahead...
