This book is for you if you have ever:
done a handstand after lovemaking to work with gravity.
• overdosed on black licorice to heighten fertility.
• faked a thermometer reading for good measure.
In between the “heavy boot” chapters of infertility, I share a hodgepodge of our Friday night date escapes. I give creative date ideas to feed the relationship and give it a vacation.
On Friday night, we take turns creating and surprising each other with a theme date. The dates are a mix of fun, artsy, outdoorsy, adventurous, glamorous, silly, cultural, sentimental, elaborate, and humbly homemade. It is on these dates we found our answer.
What happens if you are kind, optimistic, spiritual vegetarians who have tried every natural and Western medical measure to get pregnant and still you have no bump? How long would you defy your real purpose? I gave it longer than I should have, I didn’t realize I wanted to be healthy and in a good marriage more than I wanted to have a baby. I sacrificed a lot in trying to get pregnant, but when it came down to trading in my health and husband for a child, my choice became clear. I wanted our lives to be happy, giving and prosperous.
This is my journey there.
