Book Suggestions?

I love to read so I have downloaded a book to my kindle called "Empty Womb, Aching Heart." Has anyone read it? I haven't had a chance to start reading yet since my short days off are always filled with catching up on the things I don't do on the days I work. I haven't ever heard anything about this book, or any infertility book period for that matter. For those of you out there that have suffered the heartbreak of a miscarriage, I did have someone who had a miscarriage tell me that the book "Heaven is for Real" is a wonderful book....haven't read it personally though. Any suggestions from readers about infertility books? Please post comments with any suggestions...I would love suggestions.

On a side note....I ran across a blogger's post this morning which was SUCH a blessing to me. I have been struggling with a family member's pregnancy and birth of her child for about a year now which has caused me much grief, pain and anxiety (I have not shared the story yet...maybe some day I will.) I feel so relieved to know that I am not the only one who has endured this circumstance and the heart ache that comes with it. With everything that has happened it has made it painfully awkward to be around this family member. Let me just say I don't like having this much anger and hatred built up toward one person but at the same time I don't know how to deal with it. If I spoke openly about my feelings I fear that it would just make everything worse and that nobody would understand where I am coming from. I have thought about this every day for a year now and have no answer in my head to a solution for it all, so I just keep quiet and try to avoid her.


  1. Are you looking for fiction or biographical books on infertility? If fiction I highly recommend "In A Heartbeat" I read it during my 1st, 2nd and 3rd IUI's t wasn't a hard read--I just had to put it down sometimes. I forget the authors last name but know her first is Sally.

  2. Thanks Queen Mom--- I will most definitely look for it!
