This book is great! The pages hold every emotion a person goes through in a lifetime. But when you are dealing with infertility, these emotions happen daily.

I myself have struggled with infertility. It took my husband and I almost 5 years to have children. Experiencing Gina's struggles, hopes, and disappointments makes this book and the characters so real. I found myself remembering back to times well gone in my life that brought me so much pain.

Sibel has done an amazing job lending her personal experience to the story. The characters are believable and the conversations had me laughing out loud.

I could have done with out all the "F Words" in the story. I don't enjoy that. But it is a great book and a quick read.

Review: Baby Trap by Sibel Hodge
4 STARS
This is a serierous subject but told with laughter. About a couple that one day the Gina in her 30's wakes up and decides she wants a baby.
But the first month no luck and then after a few more months ended up taking his sperm for testing. She has 2 hrs to get the sperm to hospital lap.
She gets stuck in traffic ends up going over a farmer field and speeding down a road and she has tube of sperm down her pants to keep at body tempature is pulled over for speeding 20 miles over. She asks for ticket and cop never had someone ask for a ticket. He has her get out and sees the top of tube. She breaks down and tells him why and what is in tube. He understands because it took him & wife 3 years so she gets a police escort and makes it 5 min. left.
Gina gets more and more stressed and Karl feels like he just a thing to only have sex on certain days and certain ways.
I know it seems unfair that so many people want to have a baby and can't and so many people throw babies and children away. I know when I got married and 2 weeks later ended up pregnant I felt guilty because of people we knew tried for years. than I got pregnant again and 3 years after I was married I had 2 beautiful girls and was a widow. We don't know all are blessings and trials at the time they are happening and we don't see exactly what others are going through. Thanks for showing that their is always hope.
I was given this ebook from Librarythings member and asked to give a honest review. I do enjoy reading Sibel Hodge's books she brings laughter and tears with each book.

The Baby Trap combines the sad and stressful act of trying to conceive a baby with the humor of everyday life. There is a lesson for anyone who reads it. Very good read, definite recommend.

Warning: don't drink while reading; thank goodness eReaders have glass screens so are easy to clean after spitting coffee on them. 'The Baby Trap' is an emotional rollercoaster: one minute I was laughing out loud, and the next I had tears rolling down my face. Sibel Hodge handles the difficult subject of infertility with the humour that I associate with her, but also a great deal of sensitivity. I read into the early hours as I couldn't put it down until the very end. I highly recommend this book.

Review by: Rachel Cotterill on Dec. 30, 2011 : star star star
I suspect this is the perfect novel for someone who's struggling with infertility. Unfortunately, as I've never tried to get pregnant, I'm not immersed in that world and consequently spent a lot of this book feeling slightly sick at the descriptions of bodily functions and medical procedures. The story was sweet, and there were laugh-out-loud hilarious moments, but I just couldn't get past the "ick!" for long enough to love it.
