Description du produit

Revue de presse

“This book is comforting, accurate, and very funny! I recommend it!"

--Christiane Northrup, M.D., ob/gyn physician and author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom  and The Wisdom of Menopause

“Reducing stress is essential for healthy conception,  and this book is sure to help!”
--Stephanie McClellan, M.D., coauthor of So Stressed

"Psychology professor Twenge (Generation Me) cuts to the chase in this wonderful (and often humorous) guide to getting pregnant—and fast. The author explains that when she was trying to conceive, she read everything she could get her hands on—and found that much of the commonly accepted information was false. She decided to set matters straight and help women get pregnant as quickly and effortlessly as possible. Twenge takes a active and confident approach from the get-go, assuring women that if they use her methods of “fertility awareness,” there’s a good chance of getting pregnant on the first try. She offers three ways to determine the time of ovulation: charting, ovulation predictor kits, and fertility monitors, advising that the “Very Impatient Woman” use all three. Twenge details the vital importance of timing, citing research on the best days—and hours—to procreate as well as to synchronize ovulation with the chances for a boy or girl. This is a fine science, indeed, but Twenge explains her approach with clarity and precision. She debunks the myth that a relaxed attitude affects outcome and shoots down outdated statistics (e.g., oft- cited research about the fertility of women over 35 culled from birth records from France in the 1600s). Women hoping to conceive will swiftly find very helpful information in this manageable, informative, and entertaining guide." -- Publishers Weekly

Présentation de l'éditeur

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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The only pre-pregnancy book I should have bought! 20 mars 2014
Par T.Marie - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I hate to admit I bought at least a half dozen other books on pre-conception when my husband and I started thinking about starting a family. I am a real planner/researcher by nature and couldn't help myself from wanting to read everything ever written about pregnancy prep in the year or so before I was ready to actually start trying.

Well, let me save you some time and money: just get this book and read it cover to cover! That's all you need! If you're an over-achiever (or just like knowledge, like me) you should also get Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler, and then you'll really be armed with tons of information. I honestly think TCOYF should be standard issue to every girl on her 18th birthday--I aced high school anatomy and college biology, and dutifully went to yearly OB-GYN check-ups for twenty years, and yet I learned SO MUCH about my own body that was somehow new to me at age 35, just by reading TCOYF.

But, back to this book, The Impatient Woman's Guide to Getting Pregnant--thanks to the awesome information and tips in this book, and the knowledge I gained about my cycles through charting and using a fertility monitor, we conceived within two cycles once we started trying--and I'm over 35 and had some issues I was worried would lead to problems conceiving! I tell all my friends who are thinking about trying to conceive to get this book, a basal body temperature thermometer and the Clearblue Fertility Monitor and they'll be ready to go.

I wish this author would turn her talents and humor to a book on pregnancy or parenting--I so appreciated her data-driven yet entertaining approach to this topic. That said, once you ARE pregnant (thanks to this book) I recommend you check out Emily Oster's book Expecting Better, which is the closest thing I've found to this book on the topic of pregnancy.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Pregnant naturally at 39 7 mai 2015
Par Ines - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I am 40 years old. The (very well-known) fertility specialist that I saw when I was 39 told us that at my age there is 5% chance of getting pregnant naturally every month. He had me convinced to start IVF but then I got pregnant just before starting, only three months after beginning to follow the advice in this book (which claims I have 20% chance of getting pregnant each month at my age if trying efficiently). Maybe it is luck or maybe the book is right after all. A must read!

It will help you get pregnant, full of great info. But even more important it will help you feel better. It was so nice to read someone with the same mindset as me just explain the issues, provide some facts and most importantly: frankly acknowledge the crazy feelings and thoughts we all have. Wonderful book.
