From the bloating to the belching to the Baby Story marathons that might just drive you crazy, prime-time star and new mom Tia Mowry delivers the lowdown in a frank, hilarious guide to modern pregnancy.
Tia Mowrys 800,000+ Twitter followers know that she tells it like it is. Now, in a pregnancy guide like no other, Tia leaves no topic off-limits while helping expectant moms stay empowered, pampered, and laughing out loud. From sex during the third trimester to pimped-out strollers, Oh, Baby! reveals what to really expect on that nine-month road to the delivery room.
Sharing her personal experience with cravings (she couldnt have done it without sourdough bread and Funyuns); maternity clothes (Tia prefers black, with sequins); panty liners (memorize that aisle at the drugstore); vagina exercises (just say No!); and hiding your bump from your coworkers (tricky for Tia, since her character on The Game was in lingerie half the time), the maternity maven also discusses Ask the OB Q&As she posed to her own ob-gyn, along with dozens of tried-and-true tips for combating morning sickness, fear, and everything else that might overshadow a radiant glow.
From the time she started showing to the moment she welcomed her new baby boy, Cree Taylor, into the world, Tia was in the spotlight, from Access Hollywood to every glossy magazine and countless online sites. Yet she stayed down-to-earth throughout it all. Keeping it real, Oh, Baby! helps every mommy-to-be stay stylish, maintain her dignity, and trust her gut (no matter how big it gets).
Tia Mowry has been in the public eye for more than twenty years, gaining initial fame in her teens starring opposite her twin sister in the hit comedy, Sister, Sister. Her work on the series won her two NAACP Image Awards for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series, and three Kids Choice Awards for Favorite TV Actress. After the series wrapped production, Mowry attended Pepperdine University, graduating with a bachelors degree in psychology. Tias hit show Tia Mowry at Home is currently in its third season on The Cooking Channel. She is also known for her lead roles on The CW/BET hit show The Game and the Nickelodeon series Instant Mom. When not acting, she spends her time in Los Angeles with her husband, actor Cory Hardrict, and her son, Cree Taylor.
"I love this book. The chapter on Tia constantly taking pregnancy tests-- that was me. I wanted it really badly. Congratulations, Tia. Our little girl is all grown up."
"As fans of Tia and Tamera know, Tias pregnancy was uh, memorable…. She relives some of her greatest moments in her refreshingly candid new book. Here, as in the show, Tia is the queen of Too Much Information. (Isnt that what we love about her?) … Your favorite mom-to-be will thank you for this one."
"A fresh take on being a new mom… light and breezy, yet informative."
