Praise

“Funny as hell (they had me at the constipated kitten coloring page). This book should be at every baby shower.”—Amy Morrison, founder of Pregnant Chicken

“A down-to-earth, hilarious, indispensable companion that will help pregnant people everywhere keep their wits about them while growing a human inside them. I wish I’d had this when I was pregnant, and am almost tempted to get pregnant again so that I can use it (except, no).”—Emily Gould, author of Friendship

Nothing worked to keep hope alive when I was pregnant. Not Saltines, ginger ale, ratty nausea bands. Definitely not party pics from my slimmer, drunker days. If only I’d had The Big Fat Activity Book for Pregnant People. It’s got forty weeks’ worth of distractions, jokes, compassion, and satisfying meanness about America’s Military-Radiant-Pregnancy Complex. This book is a public service for all those involved in the hideous miracle of human gestation.”—Virginia Heffernan, author of Magic and Loss

“Whether you are about to become one of those moms who posts pictures of her baby in ‘__ weeks old’ message onesies every seven days for the next two years—or one of those moms who rolls her tired eyes at those people, you will find comfort, solidarity, entertainment, and maybe even total life enlightenment in Jordan Reid’s and Erin Williams’ utterly/udderly relatable The Big Fat Activity Book for Pregnant People. It is perfect. I’m ordering one for every pregnant person I know. The only downside of how hilarious this book is? You might pee a little.”—Lauren Smith Brody, founder of The Fifth Trimester, author of The Fifth Trimester

“I LOVE THIS BOOK. Clever and witty and so totally on point. Wish I had it when I was pregnant—although I would be laughing so hard that I would be pregnant peeing myself all the time. So instead I’m going to give it to all of my pregnant girlfriends so they can pregnant pee themselves.”—Marissa Hermer, “Ladies of London” (Bravo), author of An American Girl in London

“Will get you through your morning sickness better than pickles and peanut butter and whatever else TV says pregnant ladies crave. Hilarious and human, Jordan Reid and Erin Williams prove that while pregnancy might mean losing access to espresso and all that sweet gooey brie, it never means losing your sense of humor.”—Jennifer Wright, author of It Ended Badly and Get Well Soon

“Pregnant? Enjoy these nine months because they’re your last gasp of sweet freedom! Brutally honest and utterly hilarious, Jordan Reid and Erin Williams have written an entertaining, engaging book perfectly encapsulating the roller-coaster of emotions (excited! bored! terrified!) women go through during pregnancy. A must for any soon-to-be mama.”—Nadine Jolie Courtney, bestselling author of Beauty Confidential

“I knew this book was legit the minute I saw they recommended Sour Patch Kids as a morning-sickness remedy. And I was sold on their expertise at the list of things people will tell you you need, but you actually don’t need, on your registry. Some of the best pregnancy advice you can receive is from the friend who’s been there (very recently) and not afraid to keep it real, while also careful not to unnecessarily scare the crap out of you. This book is that friend.”—Jill Krause, founder of Baby Rabies

“A safer and far more effective alternative to alcohol for expecting moms, The Big Fat Activity Book for Pregnant People will keep you entertained well into those first few crazy weeks postpartum. Thank you to Jordan and Erin for providing non-stop belly laughs from page one. This book will definitely be on my list of recommendations for expecting moms for years to come.”—Monica Banks, founder of Gugu Guru

“This book will help you achieve the chill vibes you’d normally get from drinking alcohol, eating soft cheese, or being able to get up off the couch.”—Beth Newell, creator of Reductress, author of How to Win at Feminism

“My new favorite thing! I just had a baby, and I am already looking forward to my next pregnancy when I will most definitely be cuddled up with this book, laughing my way through each page. It is a relatable activity book that is sure to ease any pregnant woman’s mind, and I will absolutely be purchasing it for all of my pregnant friends!”—Audrey Scheck, West Coast Digital Director, Us Weekly
