From baby bump troubles to nappy changing woes, follow Sense’s humorous look at modern motherhood in India. From “Are you throwing up yet?” and “Where’s the belly? I want to see a belly!” to “Do you have milk?” and “No leaking?”, Sense has to grapple with not just her new found feelings with pregnancy and motherhood, but the barrage of oddly disturbing questions and advice from friends, family and so-called well-wishers.

This book traces the journey of a young Indian couple through the eyes of the mother. As she goes through myriad ‘first time’ experiences, with often hilarious results, she hopes to get through motherhood with her sense of humour (and sanity) intact. All the while hoping she hasn’t permanently scarred the baby.
