Up The Duff: The Real Guide To Pregnancy : Kaz Cooke :

I first read this when pregnant with 1 several years ago. Not just funny as you-know-what, but informative, too. Mar 25, Margot McGovern rated it it was amazing. Congratulations, and have you got a copy of Up The DuffKaz Cooke’s wonderful guide to being pregnant? As did the suggestion that continuing regular exercise was a must! Jul 17, Loren rated it liked it. Would recommend if you don’t have any close friends who have had children. Find your local bookstore at booksellers.

Feb 22, Catherine rated it really liked it. As a first time parent, I wanted to know everything I could about what would happen to my body and baby in pregnancy, but it was too basic for my style. Informative but entertaining at the same time. It was not practical nor useful to me.

Explore the Home Gift Guide. The book is also quite large and heavy to carry around.


Over those years this book has sat mockingly on my bookshelf and was on the verge of being thrown out along with our hopes when a nurse from our fertility clinic rang to say we had finally had a positive result. Honestly, the whole thing feels so completely absurd that you kind of tje to laugh every now and then to keep yourself sane, and anyone or thing that encourages that gets a big fat tick of approval from me.

I actually like exercise. It also has lots of great information, references and and links to more information and an easy to use index.

These diary accounts must be an accumulation of Cooke’s own experiences, the experiences of others and a general sympathy towards what women go through.

I have since passed it on to two friends who were expecting for ka first time and they also found its good balance of comedic relief and facts reassuring throughout their pregnancies. It does have useful information in it but is not a traditional reference book.

In saying that, it is a great read, and reminds you not too take the pregnancy too seriously.

Can feel a bit repetitive with the writing style. Hubby has found it amusing, and not to scary! She was an older city girl with a well-paying job and lived a bit of a yuppy life it seemed to me.

You will laugh and cry at the same time especially as you know its cloke but don’t want to admit to half of it!! Nov 11, Kirstie rated it it was ok.


This book is a must-read for every anxious mother to be! And make me feel SO much better!

Every first time mum should be given a copy of this book in Australia. I love Kaz’s drawings and her humour through out the book. Don’t hold your breath: Change to standard view. It was not only funny but informative as well. And the mere thought of running was totally laughable. Reading this book cooke helped me to see the funny side while also giving me valuable information.

Customers who bought this item also bought. Makes many criticisms of ‘other’ pregnancy guides but seems to reference them a lot. Love the ruler showing me how big bub was, and the stories throughout to make me laugh even on my most hormonal days. Besides, every woman has a different experience, so it’s not good to be distracted by other people’s terrible stories when they probably won’t happen to you anyway.

Pre-pregnancy, I went for a 7km run th evenings and did yoga and power pilates. I found it got a bit boring after a while. Pregnancy cushion makes your massage so comfortable!
