The Hi­lar­i­ous Side of Preg­nancy!

– I didn't ex­pect to be ex­pect­ing by Richa S Mukher­jee

Storizen Magazine - - What's Inside -

An hon­est and tonguein-cheek ac­count of the pre-natal months, I Didn’t Ex­pect To Be Ex­pect­ing is a light­hearted look at nav­i­gat­ing the chaos and un­pre­dictabil­ity of be­ing a preg­nant, work­ing pro­fes­sional in In­dia. A de­li­cious, no-holds­barred story about what to re­ally ex­pect when you’re ex­pect­ing. Funny, frank and in­cred­i­bly rel­e­vant, this book will res­onate strongly with first-time par­ents, ex­pect­ing couples and those plan­ning to have a baby.


Tara is liv­ing a blessed life in the max­i­mum city with her hus­band Ab­hi­manyu, the love of her life. At the pin­na­cle of her career, she is the ap­ple of her par­ents’ eyes and hasn’t spot­ted a wrin­kle yet – so far, the 30s are look­ing great! Noth­ing fazes Tara – not a foul­mouthed best friend or a food-burn­ing arch­neme­sis in the form of her maid – not even a land­lady who chats with ghosts. And then, Tara dis­cov­ers that she’s preg­nant, and sud­denly, all that well­honed com­po­sure crum­bles. It doesn’t help that she’s got an equally jit­tery (if sup­port­ive) hus­band by her side. Now, Tara must face her anx­i­eties about par­ent­hood as she nav­i­gates friend­ships, mar­riage and career, all the while deal­ing with the fact that her body and mind are steadily feel­ing like they be­long to some­one else.
