Gina wakes up one morning after drinking a lot of wine with her husband, Karl, and their friends, has a vision of a baby girl dressed in pink in their backyard and suddenly wants to become a mother! Shocking because up until that point, Gina has never had a maternal twinge!

"It's this feeling I can't explain. This desperate need inside me to have a baby. This urge that has completely turned my brain to single-train thoughts: baby, baby, baby."

Welcome to the beginning of best-selling author, Sibel Hodge's latest novel, THE BABY TRAP, loosely based on her own experience with infertility and attempts to get pregnant at IVF. You can expect to ride an emotional rollercoaster that is one hell of an E-ticket.

Once 33 year-old Gina and Karl decide to get pregnant, they figure all its going to take is sex, sex and well, some more sex. Gina doesn't end up pregnant right away so conceiving becomes her OBSESSION, while Karl tries to keep his high-pressure job and provide what is needed from him for conception at precise timely intervals. Gina and Karl are soon off the booze, heavy on doctor visits, green tea, vitamins, a bland diet, no more baths or cycling for Karl and he's wearing underwear ten sizes too big. A feng-shui expert is even called in, and she finds a new purpose for the most unlikely of objects.

Soon discussion is baby 24/7: basal body temperature, ovulation predictor kits, hormone levels, surge levels, clomid, Trigger ovulation, scans, stimulation injections, follicles, etc.

I loved the snappy writing style of THE BABY TRAP. The story frequently had me laughing out loud. In addition to Gina and Karl, several other characters, her Lady Garden and her father and her fertility.com friend, Poppy were a lot of fun!

Since I'm not on the baby train, I wasn't sure if I would like The Baby Trap by Sibel Hodge. I mean, it's all about babies, infertility, and all of the tricks and tools of the trade. It all starts when Gina realizes that she actually does want to have children with her husband, Karl. However, after months and months of trying, there is still only one blue line on the pregnancy test. In this hilarious read, we follow Gina as she grows more and more baby-obsessed. She tries everything from the average (holding her legs in the air for 10 minutes post baby-making session) to the extreme (*attempting* to picture a healing white light traveling to her ovaries as part of a mediation technique). It goes without saying, but life changes quite a bit for Karl too!

I liked this book because it was actually funny. This could totally be a movie and Bridemaids star, Kristen Wig (or even Maya Rudolph), would play the lead. (I know, I know, they're American and this is set in the UK. I don't care that I'm Americanizing this hypothetical movie!) It's that kind of funny. Good funny. You'll find yourself in hysterics over all of the less-than-polite words, antics, and sometimes just rotten luck that Gina and Karl encounter on their journey to babyville.

Final word: I'm not even on the baby train -- let alone near the station -- and I thought this book was hilarious. Think about what this book will do for you if you or a loved one has suffered from infertility. Hodge has a real talent for making light of this serious subject while also making you painfully aware of how torturous this ordeal is for so many couples. (Maybe it's because these events are based on Hodge's real life struggle with infertility.) Your heart will break at times, but your tears will mostly be from laughter.

After reading The Baby Trap, I'm definitely going to put another book by Sibel Hodge on my reading list.

When I read the summary of this book, I was very curious to see how the author would pull off stirring humor into a very sensitive subject often steeped in disappointment and pain. It takes a deft hand to strike a good emotional balance, and Sibel Hodge is, I am happy to report, equal to the task.

Those who have undergone similar attempts to become pregnant can only be comforted by the writing of a woman who has shared and describes the experience with immense sensitivity. Those who have not will gain access to greater understanding.

I also learned a larger lesson from reading this book. Though the experience of trying unsuccessfully to become pregnant is specific, it's also a dramatic example of how often our own fears, resistance, and anxiety can keep us from realizing our dreams. This book proved a good reminder, and I thank the author.

I loved, loved, loved this book! It was fun, spunky and oh so relatable. Baby Trap definitely struck a chord with me. Like Gina, I struggled with infertility. It took me about 3 years before I was finally pregnant with my first child and I found myself nodding my head many times as I related to Gina's frustrations and exasperation. Baby Trap is hilarious but it also addresses a difficult, sensitive and often times complicated topic. It is a very relevant story and Sibel Hodge has brought her trademark sharp eye, witty humor and introspective storytelling to Baby Trap. It was a very satisfying and uplifting read with a wonderful message and lesson learned at the end. This is chick lit with a good dose of humor and plenty of heart.
I've read most of Sibel Hodge's chick lit novels and this is one of my favorites! Whether you've struggled with infertility or not, this is a must read. It is smart, entertaining and thought-provoking.
