Insight and frank, friendly advice on overcoming infertility -- from two women who have lived through it all.

  great book

This book has become my bible and I find myself referencing back to it pretty often. My friend (pregnant with triplets, donor eggs) told me about it. While it is true these authors didn't do IVF (like I am about to do), they talked to a lot of women who did....and women who used surrogates and donor sperm and adopted and everything. I really liked the question and answers with the egg donor...gave me a lot of insight. BUt the reason I keep going back to this book is because these women talk about IF like two good pals. Listen, one of them did all the shots, etc. and got no where.. I can relate to that!! Anyhow, it is funny in places, sad in places (I still tear up when I read about one author losing her unborn baby at 18 weeks) and VERY informative. I love the honesty about doctors here. Is it the medical be-all and end-all? No. But I have all the reference books. I just needed another perspective....and a laugh now and then from other women who have been there.. and how to deal with doctors and nosy in-laws! Check it out and see if you agree.

  It's all true!

I loved this book and highly recommend it to anyone who is experiencing infertility or is going through infertility treatments. I've been through a number of infertility treatments (IUI's, med's, IVF) and this book really brings it home and offers a lot of levity, which is such a plus for an emotional experience. It also offers several perspectives from husbands - a true bonus.
  Funny book - written from the patient's perspective

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this warm and compassionate book ! While you can learn more about the medical facts of infertility treatment in other places, these two "chicks " have done a great job of presenting the patient's viewpoint - it's like having an elder sister guiding you through your quest for a baby !
  If you can't laugh at yourself, pack it up now.

What really drew me to this book is the type of personality it appeals to. It's funny, witty and irreverant, and when you've been trying forever to do the most primal and natural thing on earth to no avail - you need a sense of humor. They talk about everything from how to deal with the annoying and insensative questions from well-intentioned friends to the near-homicidal rage that hormone injections will induce. These things happen. You have to laugh. My husband and I are going through IVF right now after a long road of infertility, and this has been a great resource.
  A must read

For anyone battling infertility and the emotional roller coaster that comes along with it, this book is for you. This is the only book I have ever read that I could say while reading it, "Yes, yes, that's exactly me, or that's exactly how I feel." It doesn't offer ridiculous pat answers; it offers real information in a humorous way that leaves you in stitches. I have since passed this book on to a friend; I'm not someone that recommends lots of books. In fact, I don't even BUY that many, it has to be really good. I read a few pages at the bookstore and knew I HAD to have it and came to Amazon to place my order b/c it's much cheaper than getting it at the bookstore. I hope this helps you and GOOD LUCK!!
