Reviewed by Amy 5 April Murkoff also takes great pains to emphasise that you should not be gaining a lot of weight in the first trimester, in fact, many women actually lose weight early on—which is totally what you want to hear when you can no longer get tthe zip all the way up on your favourite skirt and the only things you seem to be able to dufff down that day are sour gummy bears.


I tue the illustrations and the ‘story’ that goes along with the week by week information. It’s easily digestible, covers off all the basics in sufficient detail and is backed up by serious research. I love Kaz’s drawings and her humour through out the book. Goodreads is the world’s largest site for readers with over 50 million reviews.

Great for Mums and Dads. The illustrations are perfect and ” Hermione the Modern Girl’s” diary was hilarious.

Duf have read this book with all three of my kids. Overall I found it to be a great pregnancy tool, telling it like it is, no point of fluffing it up, childbirth and pregnancy and be daunting, great to hear there are other upp out there just like me!!! Still, the info on how the foetus is developing is reliable and I found that fascinating, since you can’t see through your own skin, fat and muscle to what’s going on inside, you can’t feel anything except when the baby moves, and you have no control over what it’s getting up to in there anyway.

Which is exactly what I needed during a some what difficult pregnancy. But mostly, the book is so empathetic, so understanding, so non-judgmental of pregnant women and their husbands. Up the duff made me feel like everything was going to be alright and that everything I was going through was completely normal. As well as highlights from the book, the Up the Duff App has the most up-to-date expert Australian medical information, and lots of useful interactive extras for parents to be.

I liked that it told you what was happening from week to week – I agree with another review, I would not buy this, just borrow it as would not really bother to read again. If you’ve never heard of Kaz Cooke before, she’s an Australian columnist, author, cartoonist and resident funny lady.

No trivia or quizzes yet. Basically, for me, reading Up the Duff offered a lot of comfort and practical info.
