Reading any infertility books?

Since starting this whole journey, I've been trying to read up on infertility and all the things that can happened. I also bought a book called "A Few Good Eggs." So far so good. How about you guys?

I really liked this book I picked up on Amazon... I was actually just looking for a fertility yoga DVD and saw this...


Making Babies: A Proven 3-Month Program for Maximum Fertility, by Sami S. David, MD and Jill Blakeway, LAc


It is an East meets West take on fertility that gives you recommendations that you can do (yourself) to boost your fertility... it also educates you on what steps you can take before you go the IVF route (or have already gone down that path, with no avail)...


Taking Charge of Your Fertility is also my bible :)

I am reading a stunning book called "When Empty Arms Become a Heavy Burden" by Sandra Glahn and William Cutrer, MD.


Here is a little summary of the book:


When Empty Arms Become a Heavy Burden is a thoughtful and sympathetic discussion of infertility issues with a Christian perspective. It is written by a former board member of RESOLVE and an obstetrician/gynecologist who is also an ordained minister. The authors blend scripture and true stories with practical therapeutic suggestions for both partners of a couple coping with infertility. Moral questions and emotional feelings are addressed head on, in this well crafted book. The pervasive humor, honesty and knowledge of the authors is enlightening as well as entertaining.


When Empty Arms Become a Heavy Burden begins by focusing on strengthening the marital relationship which is stressed by infertility, as well as each individuals self image. Several chapters addressing the similarities and differences between men and women in their reaction to this situation and provides immediately practical suggestions for coping together. A chapter on choosing and interacting with your physician provides good advice in this difficult area. Then the book plunges into intense discussions of dealing with emotions, crises of faith, ignorant comments, and scriptural insight into infertility. The last third of the book addresses specific infertility issues - conception, egg donation, pregnancy loss, and even adoption - from a personal and Christian perspective.
