Book Overview

When we first started down the baby-making path, we thought we'd be pregnant in no time. We'd just toss out our birth control pills and before we knew it, we'd be rocking our little one to sleep. Little did we know what was in store for us, or the energy it would take to face all of the crazy, unpredictable and (sometimes) irrational emotions we felt along the way. Neither did our husbands. Sound familiar? If your idea of foreplay is screaming, "I'm...

I just finished this book

I just finished this book and wanted to check out what others thought and was surprised that there were people who hated this book so much. First of all, I have to remind these folks that this book is not supposed to be a medical book about infertility. Nothing about this book, from its cover design to the book description indicates that it is a medical reference or how-to book. Granted, I picked this book up at B & N and flipped through it first before purchasing it, that's why I don't feel duped by the contents in this book. I feel this this book is funny, original, interesting, and has plenty of good advice and descriptions of fertility treatment procedures. It's meant to be subjective and lighthearted. And for those of you going through torturous fertility treatments, it's understandable that this book will seem like it's making fun of the situation, but I don't think that that was what the authors intended to do. Anyway, this book is perfect for those that have an open mind, have been trying to conceive for no more than six months, and have a sense of humor.

If you've been trying with no success, read this book!

After reading this book, I realized that I have not gone crazy on my failed road to conception. The authors get it right on every emotion one feels as they try unsuccessfully month after month. While Taking Charge of your Fertility is the best in terms of determining ovulation and how to chart, Conception Chronicles is a great read to help you see that you are not alone and that your crazy emotions are very normal. It also includes details on what type of tests to expect if you go to a fertility specialist. Highly Recommend if you have been trying with no success and are getting very frustrated. This will give you some laughs as they describe emotions you have had yourself.

The best companion for anyone trying to get pregnant

This book is great whether you have been trying to get pregnant for 2 1/2 years or 2 1/2 months. It's not a medical guide but a surprising insight into how many other people actually feel the same way you do. I was amazed and comforted by the fact that every emotional stage my husband and I have gone through were shared by others. A wonderful and eye opening read!!

Laughter is the best medicine

This book was meant not as a medical guide for infertility, but as a companion to the process. It's very witty and funny, and I no longer feel alone in my emotions and experiences. So many descriptions in the book fit me perfectly, and I keep telling my husband as I'm reading "Look, I'm not crazy! I'm not the only one!" For those who give this book poor remarks because it's not factual enough, perhaps you should have read the back cover or the description of the book--it was plain to me what I was buying. And in response to another reader's comments, of course this book isn't for EVERYONE going through infertility; it's just for people who could use a laugh and a little encouragement along the way.

Funny AND Informative!

I ordered this book from the recommendation of someone on a bulletin board. What a pleasant surpise! The trials and tribulations of trying to conceive hit close to home, and were presented with warmth and humor. This book was also very informative on the steps you'll go through if you don't succeed in conceiving on your own. I recommend it if you or friend are trying to conceive, and especially if "infertility" treatments may be in your future.
