The next 336 hours will be tough. No, the next 336 hours will be really tough...

I feel like an Olympian, waiting to see whether the years of hard work, sacrifice and dedication are finally going to pay off, or whether my body is about to fail me at the last hurdle and make me wonder why I ever hoped I could win.

My best friend is pregnant, my single friends are planning the

This book was really moving, well-written and packed full of witty dark humour; the author was completely open about her feelings as well as the process of IVF. She describes how she had such dark feelings towards other people (women who can get pregnant at the drop of a hat; people who don't understand infertility because they've never personally experienced it; family and friends who may inadvertently say the wrong thing at the wrong time), her physical and emotional pain, and how her journey ...more

3.5 stars. I liked this book because it reflected all the ups and downs that come in the 2 week wait. Your body and mind play tricks on you and it’s just a daunting and ever ending experience! I guess this book is a combination of the author’s many experiences through IVF and it felt very hyperbolic and fictionalized to the point it wasn’t as relatable. The author comes off as very bitter (understandably) but also seems like she’s trying to be funny. It’s written in diary format but it didn’t fe ...more

This book is an honest and emotional look at a couple going through IVF. The language and story are dramatic and often palpable. Anyone dealing with IVF should read this book.

Books that are written straight from the heart are the books that seem to affect readers the most. And, 336 Hours was one such book. Written in diary form from the author's own experiences it was clear from the very beginning of the book that the story was going to touch me, make me cry and make me feel those feelings of frustration too. Tackling a difficult subject matter - infertility - the book describes so wonderfully the feelings of desperation, need and want that any person who desperately ...more

I was given this book as part of a book tour and am voluntarily reviewing it. I thought that this book was amazingly relatable. It details the main character's struggles with the 336 hours before she discovers if her third IVF treatment has been successful. She and her "DH" (dear husband) have decided this is the final time they will attempt IVF. She details the physical challenges, but more importantly, the emotional ones. What will she do if this treatment isn't successful? She contemplated a ...more
