The Optimistic Pre-Conception through First 6 - 8 Months TTC Phase:
See? So optimistic!
The "Unexplained Infertility" Fear Based Phase- Months 12-24
(These are incredibly embarrassing to buy in person, which is why many were found online and much of my research on this realm happened through TTC forums)
I know, I know- corny. But they have also struggled with infertility, and write about it in a very raw, candid way.
The "I Don't Want to Think About Fertility" Phase, interspersed throughout Months 12- Current:
LOVED this collection of essays by all different moms- helped me get forward thinking toward my life and occupations, and out of my fertility PRE occupations
The Searching/Spiritual Phase: Months 18-Current:
Love love LOVE this book and actually had a session with it's author before his passing
I am looking forward to a whole NEW pile of books making its way into our home- books pertaining to pregnancy, baby's names, child development, etc. Until then, I have vowed not to pick up any more "Infertility" books, as I am committed to moving beyond the Fear Based Phase. I'll continue to have about 5-10 different books in my nightstand at any given time- a mix between the "I Don't Want to Think About Fertility" and "Searching/Spiritual" Phase selections. : )
