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.

Let me tell you: It is perfectly okay to have a baby late, especially if you keep your health in check.Sure, at times, there are moments of frustration but during those times, ask yourself this: would you really have wanted to have a baby at say, 22? 25? Look back on your life and what you have been doing then. Would you have been ready to give the fun up, or slow down, or just change your lifestyle right away?"In this book you will find:* The reasons for late pregnancy* Increased trend for late pregnancy* Misconceptions about late pregnancy* Health issues regarding late pregnancy* Advantages and disadvantages of late pregnancy* Medical treatments to facilitate your late pregnancy* And much more!"Not everyone is ready to have a child right away in their 20s-or after getting married. That's seriously okay. In fact, I believe that it's better to have a child late because then, you'll have enough time to carve a career for yourself, make friends, meet people, and most importantly, explore and get to know yourself. Because when you know yourself, you won't get to project your frustrations on your kid-and you'll have a happy, healthy relationship because of that." - Linda Vermont
