The Trying Game: Get Through Fertility Treatment and Get Pregnant Without Losing Your Mind Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
From the author of Fertility Diary for the New York Times Motherlode blog comes a reassuring, no-nonsense guide to both the emotional and practical process of trying to get pregnant, written with the smarts, warmth, and honesty of a woman who has been in the trenches.
"A compassionate, often funny, well-researched, and ultimately empowering guide." (Lori Gottlieb, New York Times best-selling author of Maybe You Should Talk to Someone)
There are so many ways to be Not Pregnant: You can be young, old, partnered, or unpartnered. Maybe you have endometriosis. Maybe you don’t have enough eggs or your partner doesn’t have enough sperm. Or maybe there’s nothing wrong except you’re Just. Not. Pregnant.
Amy Klein has been there. Faced with fertility obstacles, she quickly became an expert. After nine rounds of IVF, four miscarriages, three acupuncturists, two rabbis, and one reproductive immunologist, she finally became a mother. And she wrote about it all for the New York Times Motherlode blog in her Fertility Diary column.
Now, Amy has written the book she wishes she’d had when she was trying to get pregnant. With advice from medical experts as well as real women, she outlines your options every step of the way, from questions you should ask to advice on getting your mother-in-law to mind her own beeswax. In this comprehensive road map to infertility, you’ll find topics such as:
- Whether to freeze your eggs
- Finding (and affording) a clinic
- What to expect during your first IVF cycle
- Baby envy - aka it’s okay to skip your friend’s shower
- Whether the alternative route - acupuncture, herbs, supplements - is for you
- Helpful tips and more!
Empowering, compassionate, and down-to-earth, The Trying Game will show you what to expect when you’re not expecting with heart and humanity when you need it the most.

I highly recommend getting it.
Having myself gone through 5 miscarriages, my only regret is that I did not have my hands on this book sooner!
