Summary

In this classic parody, Thomas Hill presents the testosterone-inspired answer to the best-seller What to Expect When You're Expecting.

The third edition of the best, funniest father's guide to having a baby, What to Expect When Your Wife Is Expanding, is now thoroughly revised and updated, but it's still packed with information, advice, and attitude - distinctively for guys. Originally conceived as a little parody, just something funny and helpful for the expectant man, the audiobook is now a classic gift, passed knowingly from one generation of first-time papas to the next.

With this lighthearted month-by-month instruction manual on the care and nurture of a pregnant wife - the main role of expectant dads - he'll handle all the important milestones and topics: what not to say during the three phases of labor, what to buy, how many and when, maintaining work-life balance, and maintaining work-life-wife balance.

New features in What to Expect When Your Wife Is Expanding include:

  • The minefield: the wrong gifts for your pregnant wife
  • Social media pregnancy etiquette: status update!
  • Eight reasons why not to pick out maternity clothes

What to Expect When Your Wife Is Expanding also features the latest trends!

  • Festive gender-reveal parties (really!)
  • Updated baby name guide, including Twitter hashtags
  • Cloth diapers: the debate is back!

Not supportive. Completely disrespectful.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Nothing. His opinion is a disgrace. And no new father should ever pick up this book. Pregnancy is a team sport...he missed the mark by miles.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

NO

This book is ridiculous

TLDR: Do not buy this book unless it's for a gag.

If you have half a brain you should find a real book on fatherhood. This one talks to you like you are a prototypical version of the idiotic dad stereotype you find in TV and movies and American pop culture in general. Let's not even talk about how it portrays women and wives and pregnancy...
