Babies in Waiting

I don't know if i've mentioned it before but i love to read and although i don't get to do it as much these days i grab the chance whenever i can. As football has been a nightly fixture in our house over the last couple of weeks, Phil ordered me this book to read after i'd mentioned it to him. 
Now being pregnant the title grabbed me right away and when i read the description on Amazon it made me want it more. 

Meet Louise, 38, Toni, 26 and Gemma, 18. They are all expecting babies in September. One of them conceived in a hurry because she was running out of time. One of them fell pregnant to keep a man and one got knocked up by mistake after a one-night-stand. But none of them realized what they would come up against as they face nine long months of pregnancy, and the reactions of friends, family and colleagues. Meeting through an online forum, they form an unlikely but powerful bond. When it seems that all they have is each other, their lives will be thrown into turmoil, as a blast from the past threatens to destroy everything. Babies in Waiting is a heart-warming novel about motherhood, friendship and finding love at the most surprising time in your life. It is also very funny, sexy and utterly compelling.(taken from Amazon)

When i was pregnant with Seb i joined an online forum on  a baby site and a on there a group of mums who had babies due in November 2010. Then we moved onto a facebook group and its amazing to have a little community who are all very different but very supportive of each other.  A big group of us went on a night out in December and it was fab meeting them. So the idea of this book appealed.

Now i won't lie,  this book isn't the best book i've ever read but its a nice easy read for those who like chick lit, well it beats watching the football!
