The first three trimesters (and the fourth--those blurry newborn days) are for the baby, but the Fifth Trimester is when the working mom is born. A funny, tells-it-like-it-is guide for new mothers coping with the demands of returning to the real world after giving birth, The Fifth Trimester is packed with honest, funny, and comforting advice from 800 moms, including:

*The boss-approved way to ask for flextime (and more money!)
*How to know if it's more than "just the baby blues"
*How to pump breastmilk on an airplane (or, if you must, in a bathroom)
*What military science knows about working through sleep deprivation
*Your new sixty-second get-out-of-the-house beauty routine
*How to turn your commute into a mini-therapy session
*Your daycare tour or nanny interview, totally decoded
