A reassuring, no-nonsense guide to both the emotional and practical process of trying to get pregnant, written with the smarts, warmth, and honesty of a woman who has been in the trenches
There are so many ways to be Not Pregnant: You can be young, old, partnered, or unpartnered. Maybe you have endometriosis. Maybe you don?t have enough eggs or your partner doesn?t have enough sperm. Or maybe there?s nothing wrong except you?re Just. Not. Pregnant.
Amy Klein has been there. Faced with fertility obstacles, she quickly became an expert. After ten doctors, nine rounds of IVF, four miscarriages, three acupuncturists, two donors and one rabbi, she finally became a mother. And she wrote about it all for the New York Times Motherlode blog in her ?Fertility Diary? column.
Now Klein has written the book she wishes she?d had when she was trying to get pregnant. With advice from medical experts as well as their patients, she outlines your options every step of the way, from questions you should ask your docs to advice on getting your mother-in-law to mind her own beeswax. In this comprehensive road map to navigating the confusing world of infertility, you?ll find information on such topics as
-whether to freeze your eggs
-finding (and affording) a clinic
-what to expect during your first IVF cycle
-baby envy?aka it?s okay to skip your friend?s shower
-whether the alternative route?acupuncture, herbs, supplements?is for you
-when it?s time to move on (to another doctor, clinic, treatment, donor or surrogate).
Empowering, compassionate, and down-to-earth, The Trying Game will show you, with heart and humanity, what to expect when you?re not expecting.
