Typically, “new mom” guides address the biggest challenges from those first few years of motherhood: breastfeeding, bonding, sleep, and getting back in shape. But nowhere is a guide that tells you What to say when someone asks if i’m pregnant and I had the baby last year.

That’s where Romper advice columnist and award-winning writer Jenny Pritchett comes in: You Look Tired is a smart, inclusive, tell-it-like-it-is guide for new moms with diverse experiences, backgrounds, and resources. Writing as Jenny True in her “Excruciatingly Personal Mommy Blog,” she has provided what her readers crave: the relief and laughter that come with validation and, most importantly, connection. Her columns are a mix of humor, rage, disbelief, and encouragement (with a smidgeon of practical advice) and her thousands of fans have called her a “postpartum feelings doula.” Here she covers such burning topics as:

* The Fourth Trimester: And other euphemisms you will come to hate.
* Maternity Leave: Fantasy vs. reality
* Who Am I Anymore: Having Kids Puts Your Identity in the Juicer
* An Open Letter to People who Say, “Looks like you have your hands full!”

And much more!
