Mummy Diaries is a lovely book written by Louise Hamilton as a way to record her first pregnancy.
What I love most about this book, is how it is a real account of a real women's pregnancy. There is no part which is made 'fluffy' and as a result those, like myself, who have had children can relate on many levels to Louise's pregnancy. As I was reading I kept going 'oh that happened to me too'.
The book is not just for those who have had children but for those expecting or thinking about having children. I wish this book had been available when I was pregnant as it would have given me so much reassurance and confidence that another lady was experiencing exactly the same thing at the same time as I was.
I feel as if I not only know Louise but her friends and family too. I could feel her frustrations with her partner and his family and at times wanted to just give her a huge hug especially the part with the letter at Christmas, I don't want to give too much away.
This book is beautifully written and very easy to read. It is exactly as the title states a mummy diary of a pregnancy. This book is perfect for all those wanting to be a mummy, soon to be a mummy or a mummy of any number of years. I really enjoyed this book and will be letting my Mum have a read too.
