Conception Chronicles

So, I finally finished reading, The Conception Chronicles; the Unsensored Truth About Sex, Love and Marriage When You Are Trying To Get Pregnant by Patty Doyle Debano.

I loved this book! It was an easy read that was jammed packed with information. In addition, the humor was wonderfully used when addressing the “hard emotional stuff.”

The book is set up like many others. The chapter topics are as follows:
1. Practice Makes Perfect, Right?
2. Finding Your Fertile Self
3. If the Stick is Blue, You Know What to Do!
4. The Fertile Friend
5. Calling in the Pros
6. The Angry Ovulator
7. Testing, Testing…one, two, three
8. The Psychotic Supplement
9. The Envelope, Please
10. Give it Your Best Shot
11. What Do You Tell the Paparazzi?
12. IVF” I Vow Not to Freak Out
13. There’s More Than One Road to Motherhood
14. Mama, Madre, Mommy, Mum

You can tell by the chapter titles, that the authors have a great sense of humor! The book is basically an informational guide of what to expect when you are trying to get pregnant. It addresses topics such as choosing a doctor and the frustrations in trying to take advantage of your most fertile days.

What makes this book unique is that the text is supplemented by related e-mails that the authors sent each other as they were individually trying to become pregnant. Many are hysterical…some are poignant as well.

The authors seem to really nail the emotional roller coaster and internal dialogue that we all experience when we are trying to become pregnant.

Definitely an enjoyable read!
