Book Review + Giveaway

***OK looks like I was able to fix my blog page. Although I may still be experiencing issues with the giveaway tool so make sure u leave a comment incase it doesnt work so i can pick a winner. Thanks! ***

I have never done a book review in my life so bare with me here. (Okay maybe back when I was in school but that was soooo long ago). Hope I do a fantabulous job that it makes all my readers want to go out and buy this wonderful book. Katie Schnack, Publicist, reached out to me back in November for this wonderful opportunity. Unfortunately there was a mixed up with our mail and I didn't receive this book until about a week ago, ooops! I actually saw this book at my fertility clinic in the lobby as well as the billing area. Which made me intrigue and desperate to receive this book.

So here goes it...


Chris & Michelle Miller are an ordinary couple that are in for a rude awaking. Like many of us who deal with infertility we never imagined how difficult having a baby could really be. Thanks SEX ED class! This book is broken down with His & Her perspectives on their infertility journey. Which I think is wonderful because I catch myself wondering sometimes how J feels during this process. Most men tend to be silent during this journey and when they do seem to share it makes us women a little less vulnerable. While reading this book I couldn't help but recall our journey. I would stop reading and text J to ask him how he felt when a certain event happen after reading Chris's perspective. This couple walks you through their journey from the moment they met until they achieved their goal, having a family. Their story started out just like many of us trying naturally. As the months, years passed and still no baby they sought out help. Going through testing, surgeries,a miscarriage, IUIs, and IVFs. (Yes they did more than one cycle of IVF). Reading about Michelle's miscarriage brought tears to my eyes. Although it was never truly confirmed in her case she believes she had a blighted ovum. My first pregnancy was a blighted ovum as well and I don't think I would ever get over. If you are in the trenches of infertility or even out of the trenches I honestly think you would enjoy this book. Its honesty allows you to relate to this couple and of course they have a beautiful ending. I enjoyed reading their story that I finished the book in three days, would've been sooner but responsibilities got in the way.

Since you were generous enough to read my review Katie and I are doing a book giveaway.
