"[My character's] entire background makes her a baby expert and she has every expectation that [her] pregnancy will be wonderful -- and is sort of taken aback when everything goes as wrong as they could," says Elizabeth. "The irony of her life is that she gets the pregnancy from hell."

Inspired by the well-known New York Times bestselling pregnancy manual, What to Expect When You're Expecting chronicles the hilarious and heartwarming stories of five couples who face the many challenges adjusting to pregnancy and parenthood.
