Book Review – The Two Week Wait

Lucy J Lewis (4/5 Stars)

Read this if you:
· have had to endure the dreaded TWW
· need some (realistic) hope in your fertility journey
· know someone who is struggling with infertility and want to understand what they are going through

The story of five women looking for support on their fertility journey as they embark on the two week wait to find out if they have conceived during their fertile window. The women all vary in age, background, and reasons for wanting children, but they all start off with the same want: a BFP (Big Fat Positive) on their pregnancy test.

My thoughts on the book:
This book was a quick and easy read. Even though there were five main characters with separate lives to keep track of, it was easy to follow each woman’s story throughout the book. The Two Week Wait can be agonizing but I felt as though Lewis brought light to this sensitive subject as well as hope for those on a similar fertility journey to those in the book. I really enjoyed how this was written as a combination of prose as well as forum messages. This book may be triggering for people who are current experiencing issues with infertility.
