A Great Book Suggestion
Sat, 02-06-2010 - 8:23am

Hi everyone,

  I was having a really "down" weekend last Saturday and Sunday after the dreaded pre-menstural cramps started to rear their ugly head.  I felt like I needed a comforting book that would help me know that I was not the only one going through this hell and that what I was feeling was normal.

  I made a trip to Chapters and picked up a book that I am absolutely loving.  It's called "Unsung Lullabies" by Janet Jaffe, Martha Diamond, and David Diamond.  They are three reproductive psychologists that also had infertility issues of their own.  Every page I'm saying "yup, that's me!" and "exactly!" - it is a great read and touches on all of the challenging aspects of dealing with infertility.  To me, it's felt like a warm cup of soup or a cozy blanket - and I wanted to mention in case others out there were in need of some of that too!

  Hope this recommendation is helpful to some of you.

Lisa ;-)
