Minus Nine to One : The Diary of an Honest Mum.


Being pregnant for the first time changed Jools Oliver's life. Having longed for children since before she can remember, she was suddenly faced with an array of unfamiliar, unexpected and sometimes downright embarrassing emotional and physical reactions. And when Poppy (and a year later Daisy) was born she had to learn a whole new set of skills.

From trying to conceive and a first positive pregnancy test to Poppy's first birthday, Minus Nine To One takes you through the worries, surprises, excitement, miracles and sheer bloody hard work that Jools - and all new mums in their own different ways - have to cope with along the way.

As Jools writes, 'This certainly isn't meant to be read as a guidebook, or a medical reference book - it is simply my story and I hope that you can relate to it in some way (and maybe even relax with it in the bath!).'

Down to earth, personal and very, very funny, this is the book no aspiring mother will want to be without.



Reader review from amazon.com:

"I bought this book because I've been interested in Jools Oliver, and also because I plan to become a mother myself in the next few years.

It is a beautifully presented book, which has been styled to look like a diary, and it has a handy little ribbon inside to use as a bookmark.

The content of the book is really interesting and follows Jools as she tries to conceive, becomes pregnant and has her first daughter. She's really honest, and that's very refreshing. It's an excellent resource for those women planning on becomming mothers, or those pregnant with their first child.

I think it's great- well done Jools! I look forward to reading any future book you decide to write!"
