Did you read the book? Did it help? I finished the book last week. I bought it and read it in two days...and wanted to read more after I had finished. While my story is quite different to those in the book, which of course it would be, it was good to feel less alone. I now know that there are women and men out there who share some of my experiences and feelings about being childless in our society. However, a new twin pregnancy has been announced in my workplace. She is a colleague,friend, and for a while fellow IVF'er. She continued with treatments after it was suggested that I give up. She and her closest friend at work took me aside and told me the news. I'm very happy for her as she has had such a struggle to become pregnant. She will be a wonderful mother. She's quite a bit younger than me but its still hard. I can sense a uneasiness between us now, which is disappointing and I acknowledge that it was me who felt a growing tension with the news and I've allowed it to become a wall between us. I'm disappointed in my reaction. It's wrong, immature and pointless and I know that I need to get over it for both our sakes.
