9780738212555: The Second Nine Months: One Woman Tells the Real Truth about Becoming a Mom. Finally.

When her daughter Blair was born, Vicki Glembocki experienced the first blast of maternal bliss that she assumed would carry her through the next nine months of sleepless nights and all the challenges that come with a new baby. So why was the transition into motherhood so hard? Because no one told her the real deal about what lay ahead.

Finally, one mother gives the unvarnished truth about those first months, from the worry over whether you're bonding, to the suspicion that you're the only woman on earth who lacks the maternal gene.” Funny and brutally honest, Glembocki lets new moms know they're not alone and reassures them that when someone coos, Aren't you just loving every minute?” it's perfectly normal to think: No, actually, I'm not!”

And you and your child will still turn out just fine.

Review:

Mid-Ohio Valley Parent Magazine, 2/16/09
“This mom’s memoir shows a different side to the new mom—the mom who is exhausted, has an extremely fussy baby, who wonders if she made a mistake...It’s that kind of frankness that makes this book such a compelling read.”

"Not since Anne Lamott's Operating Instructions has there been such an insightful, open account of a new mother's fears of inadequacy, with wicked humor along the way." --Sarasota Magazine

"A breath of fresh, raw, real, no kidding motherhood air. Vicki seems to have entered my brain and sucked out all of my feelings and put them down on paper for the world to read. I wish I could give her a big hug and tell her thank you." --Blogmommas

"It's really great to see someone have the courage to expose the insecurities we all feel at times and to detail so humorously those difficult experiences in the first few months. I would definitely recommend this book to mothers." --The New Parents Guide
