First comes love. Then comes marriage. And then things start to get really interesting...InGood in Bed,Cannie Shapiro conquered public heartbreak and shaky self-esteem. InIn Her Shoes,Rose and Maggie Feller learned about family secrets and the ties that bind. Now, in Jennifer Weiner's richest, wittiest, most true-to-life novel yet, this highly acclaimed storyteller brings readers a tale of romance, friendship, forgiveness, and extreme sleep deprivation, as three very different women navigate one of life's most wonderful and perilous transitions: the journey of new motherhood.Rebecca Rothstein-Rabinowitz is a plump, sexy chef who has a wonderful husband, supportive friends, a restaurant that's received citywide acclaim, a beautiful baby girl...and the mother-in-law from hell.Kelly Day's life looks picture-perfect. But behind the doors of her largely empty apartment, she's struggling to balance work and motherhood and marriage, while entering Oliver's every move (and movement) on a spreadsheet, and dealing with an unemployed husband who seems content to channel-surf for eight hours a day.And Ayinde Towne is already on shaky ground, trying to live her life to the letter of a how-to guide calledBaby Success,when her basketball superstar husband breaks her trust at the most vulnerable moment in her life, putting their marriage in peril -- and their new family even more in the public eye.Then there's Lia Frederick, a Philadelphia native who has just come home, leaving Los Angeles behind, along with her glamorous Hollywood career, her husband, and a tragic secret, to start her life all over again.With her trademark warmth and humor, Weiner tells the story of what happens after happily ever after...and how an eight-pound bundle of joy can shake up every woman's sense of herself in the world around her.From prenatal yoga to postbirth sex, from sisters and husbands to mothers and mothers-in-law,Little Earthquakesis a frank, funny, fiercely perceptive Diaper Genie-eye view of the comedies and tragedies of love and marriage.

our women meet in a yoga for pregnant women class, and form a bond despite how different they are.

I always love Jennifer Weiner's books and this one is not an exception.

Babies, babies everywhere, and ne'er a wink of sleep. Ensemble cast of new moms who meet at baby yoga... from all points of the compass socially and economically -- and parenting styles! Touching realism. If you can get past the negative connotations of "chick lit" you might enjoy this. Personally, not my favorite of J. Weiner's works but still has some power.
