I am the no prego pro, infertility warrior, bunless oven, can't-make-a-baby veteran. It has taken six years and tens of thousands of dollars to achieve this distinction, and more specifically, 1,611 prenatal vitamins, 78 fertility drug injections, 55 ovulation detection tests, 40 blood draws, 33 ultrasounds, 16 pregnancy tests, and 11 embryos to confirm it. Still, througho ...more

As someone who has been down the trying-to-conceive path (or maybe I should say rollercoaster), I couldn’t resist this book. I have been part of the trying-to-conceive community, and seen what some people will do in the effort to get pregnant – and I’ve done some of those same things myself. Fortunately, the closest I ever came to fertility treatments was discussing Clomid with my OB. But, I have had many friends go through varying degrees of infertility, and have been there to support them thro ...more

Very light, easy reading on a very sensitive subject.

I highly recommend this book to read or to give as a gift for anyone struggling t

Infertility brings frustration and heartbreak for so many couples, and it isn’t an easy topic to talk about for those women in the midst of it. Blogger Lori Green LeRoy knows these pains firsthand, but she’s opting to poke fun at some of the crazier aspects of the trials of infertility. LeRoy makes her intent for the book clear from the beginning, stating that she is not necessarily sad about her infertility experiences, although she does get frustrated and angry. She’s taking the approach that ...more

Funny take on infertility with a collection of experiences from a number of people. Nice to find a book on infertility that doesn't focus 100% on the dark side of the experience.
