Where's the chapter on mommy separation anxiety?

Rosie Pope

When it comes to pregnancy and the goo-goo ga-ga crowd, Rosie Pope knows every trick in the book. Except maybe one.

“As I sit here nervously listing all the things I need to do before I leave for my almost month long book tour and how I am going to take at least one of my children on each leg of the trip (I know crazy), I keep welling up. I have never been away from any of them for this length of time,” the Mommy IQ: The Complete Guide to Pregnancy author confides on her site. “To say that I am a little overwhelmed is an understatement but on the up side I am going to be able to make it back for Halloween and stuff my face with candy with my kids.”

Ut oh, the floodgates are about to open. “I just hope they remember who I am by then! Okay now I am really crying…Halloween seems like an age away and to think I won’t be properly home until almost Halloween is crazy.”

While leaving sons J.R., Wells, and almost five-month-old daughter Vivienne at home will prove a trying learning experience, Rosie is simultaneously patting herself on the back. “Stripping back any of this personal collision in my mind, it does make me proud to think that I have, at last, written my own book! My thoughts and years of research are now all neatly bound in a book for your beautiful eyes to read.”
