About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
This is such a charming book. I know so many women who have suffered the heartbreaking trial of infertility. And each woman handles it in her own way. It is poignantly sweet to see this author showing humor to cope. Her stories are honest to the point of complete vulnerability, and bound to make you chuckle, but also apt to make your heart ache a little.
I love the frankenss of this book. So many women who have struggled with fertility will find this book relatable. But I can also see where the book might be a difficult read for women not in a place where the can see any humor in their fertility trials and tribulations, so keep that in mind when reading or recommending the book. It may not be for everybody, and that is ok, because if this book can make just one woman smile and feel less alone in her journey toward motherhood, then in my opinion, it has done it's job well.
I received a touring copy of this book courtesy of Crazy Book Tours.
I learned so much about what women (and men) go through with fertility treatments. Lori doesn't hold back, and shares with sensitivity and humor.
And she's qualified to write about it. To quote Lori, she has had "1,611 prenatal vitamins, 78 fertility drug injections, 55 ovulation detection tests, 40 blood draws, 33 ultrasounds, 16 pregnancy tests and 11 embryos."
I highly recommend this book to read or to give as a gift for anyone struggling to become pregnant.
