Description

  • Used Book in Good Condition
  • Comforting and intimate, this “girlfriend” guide to getting pregnant gets to the heart of all the emotional issues
    around having children—biological pressure, in-law pressures, greater social pressures—to support women who are
    considering getting pregnant.

    Trying to get pregnant is enough to make any woman impatient. The Impatient Woman’s Guide to Getting Pregnant is a
    complete guide to the medical, psychological, social, and sexual aspects of getting pregnant, told in a funny,
    compassionate way, like talking to a good friend who’s been through it all. And in fact, Dr. Jean Twenge has been
    through it all—the mother of three young children, she started researching fertility when trying to conceive for the
    first time. A renowned sociologist and professor at San Diego State University, Dr. Twenge brought her research
    background to the huge amount of information—sometimes contradictory, frequently alarmist, and often discouraging— that
    she encountered online, from family and friends, and in books, and decided to go into the latest studies to find out the
    real story.

    The good news is: There is a lot less to worry about than you’ve been led to believe. Dr. Twenge gets to the heart of
    the emotional issues around getting pregnant, including how to prepare mentally and physically when thinking about
    conceiving; how to talk about it with family, friends, and your partner; and how to handle the great sadness of a
    miscarriage. Also covered is how to know when you’re ovulating, when to have sex, timing your pregnancy, maximizing your
    chances of getting pregnant, how to tilt the odds toward having a boy or a girl, and the best prenatal diet.

    Trying to conceive often involves an enormous amount of emotion, from anxiety and disappointment to hope and joy. With
    comfort, humor, and straightforward advice, The Impatient Woman’s Guide to Getting Pregnant is the bedside companion to
    help you through it.
