Gretchen Fox is a planner and list-maker by nature, perfectly suited to her job as a hotel catering manager. And in her cautious, look-before-you-leap way, Gretchen was waiting until the time was absolutely perfect before she had a baby. Her body, however, had other ideas. Now Gretchen is discovering what a big difference a little blue line can make - to her marriage, her career, and her state of mind. As Gretchen spends sleepless nights pondering all the reasons she's not ready to become a mother, she starts to question every other area of her life too. Even her relationship with Meredith and Louisa, her closest friends since their days together at Smith College, undergoes a sudden, dramatic shift. As she's inducted into a new world of anti-motion sickness wristbands, emergency supplies of ginger ale, and hormone-fuelled crying jags, Gretchen realizes that all the planning in the world couldn't have prepared her for the wonderful, extraordinary journey that lies ahead...
