I just got the book yesterday and have read half of it. I have mixed feelings. The author give very good information that is easy to understand. The emotions she describes are right on target with anyone going through infertility. She lists great resourses. There are also a lot of things I dislike. It is extremely annoying to read a book that has at least one sentance in every paragrah that is followed by her side notes in parentheses (like this). I also feel like she has a "I'm right, you're wrong" attitude where her advice is the only advice. A fertility nurse once told me "If this were an exact science, we wouldn't be in this situation right now" which is true. The right course of treatment for one person isn't always the right course for another.

(Taken from the back)

Your pregnant friends (who all seen to be on Baby #2 by now) have the nerve to complain about how fat they are, how much the baby is kicking and how exhausting it is to be pregnant or worse, pregnant again!!
Nonoe of this is anything you want to hear when you are struggling to concieve.
