About getting pregnant reviews

The title of this book should be "The impatient married heterosexual woman's guide to getting pregnant in the 1950s," because - wow - I'll just say the writer and I have different worldviews. This book is an excellent guide for any woman dissatisfied with the standard ob-gyn advice to getting pregnant: stop taking birth control, start taking a prenatal vitamin, and don't worry until after an entire year of trying. All references to men in this book make them sound like bumbling sex-crazed idiots who could care less about their partner's feelings.
As a not-particularly "girly" woman, the lack of romanticism of pregnancy was very refreshing.


This makes sense because much of her advice is focused around a very traditional marriage where the man watches football and hungers for sex while the woman cooks and cleans and worries about menstruation. This is really more for ladies who wanted their husbands to get them pregnant yesterday, or who have had to convince their husband to have kids, who didn't find a husband until they were in their 30s and now they're freaking out because culture tells them it's too late, etc. And, if you fall into that camp, I think there's probably a lot of really fantastic advice in here - she gets really detailed about OPKs and fertility monitors, when and how to test, when and how to have sex, what ovulation is and how to track your cycles. Nonetheless, I read it through and found the section about sex prediction kind of fascinating - mostly for the ways science has figured out how sex is determined.


If, like me, you're reading pregnancy guides to pass the time and learn a thing or two between rollercoaster IUI cycles, don't expect this book to enlighten you to anything other than the fact that there's a $200 machine on the market that'll tell you when to have sex.
