"When you find out that you're pregnant, you might be nervous. I certainly was, mostly because I didn't know anything, and I wanted to know it all. Right now."

In Carrying On, lifestyle blogger Jordan Reid weaves real-world fashion, beauty, home dér, and entertaining advice into a candid account of what pregnancy (and new parenthood) is really like. Fearlessly taking on topics that every mom-to-be wrestles with, including judgment from peers (and total strangers), relationship upheavals, intimacy issues, and the greatest worry of all -- can you ever truly be "ready" for a change as big as a baby? -- Carrying On is a must-read for any woman looking for a humorous (and sometimes heartbreaking) account of what life is like when you're waiting for your new one to start.

–Audrey Scheck, US Weekly's West Coast Digital Director

“Great, practical advice from Reid who was a bit lost in her twenties, found her way in her thirties and embraced motherhood--and her life-- in all the good ways without sugarcoating the bad. A humorous, honest and heartfelt read for anyone expecting their first baby or anyone who is still in the trenches from the ever-so-difficult and rewarding journey of motherhood.”
–Lifestyle expert Jill Cordes

“Lighthearted and practical, candid and cool, it will validate all your feelings and help ensure the old you doesn't get lost in new motherhood.”
