Overview

Meet, marry and make a baby: That's how it's supposed to go, right?

What happens when you start trying for a family ... and trying, and trying some more? How far do you go to achieve your dream of having children?

So Close is the heart wrenching, exhilarating, devastatingly funny story of Tertia Albertyn's battle with infertility. Tertia wanted a baby so badly she went through nine IVFs. Most people give up after the third.

I don't think I am being brave at all. I am just too terrified NOT to try again.

In her worst nightmare she could never have imagined that making a baby would take her four years, each treatment bringing her and her husband Marko closer and closer to creating their family.

During Tertia's journey everything that can go wrong does go wrong. Until, finally, everything goes just right.

Tertia is as hilarious as she is irrepressible, as approachable as she is knowledgeable. If you are struggling with infertility, have triumphed over infertility or have felt empathy with someone who is going through this experience, you will find a friend in Tertia.

This is a great book if you have been TTC for a year or more, if its been 3 months and you arent pregnant, put it back on the shelf. My husband and I have been trying for 3 years, This book can fill you with hope, make you laugh out loud and cry all at the same time. So many of her experiences will bring back memories or show you what you have to look foward to. She is a real person, frank, smoker, drinker and a little abrasive. I must read highly reccomend. I have read a few times, just for the laugh out loud factor!
