Not only is Graham Peterson unlucky in his choice of careers, he's also been terrible with women throughout his adult life. That changes when he meets Alison on a work night out. Unfortunately for Graham, however, things change so drastically that within a month of dating Alison, he gets the news that he's about to become a father for the first time.
The Diary of an Expectant Father charts the months leading up to what should be the happiest day of a young couple's life, but with a relationship so new and a career so bad, can Graham keep everything together for the sake of his unborn child?
With all the pitfalls and worries of an expectant father charted, this book is for all those who have been through pregnancy or just want to know how a man deals with all these things internally.
Expectant Father is the first in a series of diaries by Graham Peterson, who sometimes thinks he's writing to an alien warlord from the future. The next in the series, The Diary of a Hapless Father: Months 1-3, charts those first three terrifying months of parenthood.

Great connection

Would you consider the audio edition of The Diary of an Expectant Father to be better than the print version?

One of the few audiobooks ive heard where the reader is engaging with the story fully.. clearly has put time and effort into getting this right. laughed out loud throughout.. great narration Will M Watt!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Diary of an Expectant Father?

Wills commentary of the scene in A+E had me in stitches..

What does Will M Watt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Genuine humour, comical timing and easy listening..

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?


Any additional comments?

Thanks again... more please!

Brilliant story, wonderfully read. Made me laugh and cry. Could relate to so much, interesting to hear a Dads perspective. 👶🏼.

Daddy Diary

I love this book. This is about a man and woman, Graham and Alison who get pregnant and he decides to take an active role in her pregnancy. He purchases a book and decides to keep a daddy diary. He goes through everything with her, meanwhile logging everything in his journal.

I liked whenever he wrote about morning sickness, wondering who came up with that term as it always happens in the evening. Very true. He goes through wondering about Down Syndrome and the sex of the baby to sonograms and feeling the baby kick. He even notes when her hormone swings really kick in.

They decide to move in together but he worries about his job and how he's going to support his family. They're having a midwife deliver the baby but the baby goes past the due date.

I really like the idea of this audiobook. It shows a father being active in the pregnancy AND attentive to the mother of his child. I would recommend this one for any expecting parents. I don't think it's meant to be a guidebook but it's a good story. Looking forward to the next in the series. I want to know what happens next.

Will Matt does a great job narrating this book. It's told as journal entries which I liked. He fits the part very well. A very nice, easy listen.

Audiobook provided for an unbiased review.

A must read for expecting parents!

This book takes the not so glamorous aspects of pregnancy and makes them down right hilarious.

Graham starts off writing his diary as sort of a time capsule for an alien warlord to find. As he starts to get into unloading through his writing he brings up lists of things that worry him. He starts to add in his experiences and you just get drawn in to this book. It is one laugh right after another from the photo booth flood pregnancy test, to the horrible co-workers, to working up the courage to tell the grandparents to be. I loved getting the male point of view on the whole situation.

Will M Watt does a fabulous job with the narration. He has a great reading voice and a wonderful accent, and he added plenty of emotion to this book.

Audiobook received for an honest review.
