It's always nice to have someone help you see the lighter side of such a difficult experience, but a chat with a good friend would have suited me better. It really bothered me that she she was so negative about IUI. She's not a doctor. Her words are opinions and not backed by statistics. There is enough pessimism about the odds without comments like hers worrying couples further. I wouldn't recommend this book to infertile friends for that reason.

I had high hopes for this one and was disappointed. Short, mostly boring and only mildly amusing is how I would describe it. Don't waste your $3.

Really enjoyed this book. While not a parent nor ever had a desire to be one, this book certainly helps understand those going through the fertility treatment journey which I know at times can be a rather bumpy ride. This might help make the trip a bit smoother by being able to laugh at some of it.

I direct an IVF Laboratory and I talk to alot of infertility patients teaching the "disorientation" class as Lori puts it. I do my best to clear IVF up and I try to do it with humor to relax our patients. Lori hits the nail on the head by attempting to make the most stressful period an infertility patient's life a little less stressful. I found myself belly laughing at some of her experiences because I know they happen. I've read excerpts to the staff as it relates to them and they are laughing and seeing that it happens everywhere not just in our office. And, it does happen! But, the infertility patient has to learn to laugh at the situations and not stress because it isn't going to help. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the book as it relates to the infertility patient and I am recommending it to my patients. Especially to those that are super triple A personalities to try and chill them out.

Yes, how can infertility be humorous? As a woman who has been through the ringer of infertility treatments and procedures, I can tell you that Lori's delightfully sarcastic take on this process is dead on. It was such a joy to find an experience so similar to my own and to know that I am not alone in having many of these thoughts and feelings. Oh yeah...and insanity. I would recommend this book to anyone going through the process as a reminder to keep your sense of humor during a very serious and frustrating period of time. I would further recommend this book to those standing by the side of someone struggling with infertility to help them grasp a small iota of understanding of what their loved ones, neighbors, colleagues, etc might be going through.

First off, we struggled with infertility for years and found the humor sometimes in the midst of our heartache. Lori did a fabulous job of encapsulating what infertiles go through. I laughed out loud at her receptionist story, the calling after hours and the waiting room games. If you're going through infertility you'll find this a great companion on your journey. If you're a survivor, you'll mentally and emotionally reminisce your experiences and realize in all the "not talking about your infertility" you actually had a lot to talk about, or I should say, laugh about. Consider it a gift for yourself or a gift for someone you know that is dealing with infertility, it won't disappoint. Kristin Beltaos - [...]

I was going through a hard time after getting another negative test result and this book made me laugh when I wasn't sure I could any more. The author has gone through the craziness of infertility and all of the appointments and conversations with friends and all the poking and prodding and this book felt like a good friend who shared MY experience. She is not judgemental, doesn't give you MORE advise, and certainly doesn't add any stress to your load. And it's a quick and easy read. Thanks for some great laughs. I think this month could be the best one yet because I have learned again how to laugh- instead of stress- my way through getting pregnant.

As an infertility counselor, one of the things we work on most is trying to reduce stress and not let the excruciating sadness and depression of infertility take over your life. One of the best ways to de-stress is to laugh! You can't find a better way to laugh than by reading Lori's book. She has a great way of putting a spin on someone the odd and awkward things we go through when facing infertility. This book will help you feel less alone and will give you some time to just laugh at a topic that can be so overwhelmingly serious! I highly recommend! ~Tracy Birkinbine, MA, LPC, NCC, owner and counselor at [...]
