By Julia MacLellan: As many of you may already know, I’m a first-time mama-to-be, with my wee one expected to arrive somewhere around July 23.
I admit, I get a kick out of the fact that I’m well into the group the obstetricians like to label as “advanced maternal age” – for me, it’s been an absolute treasure and a joy to be enjoying a first pregnancy at 41.
I can lie there for hours just feeling Wee One kick and squirm, poking her little feet when she kicks me, watching her wiggle about. I can keep up endless conversations with her – about everything and nothing – and sing to her pretty much constantly.

TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
Test tubes and testosterone (Male In-fertility)
-- What do you need to make a baby? A willing partner? A good sense of timing? Some wine maybe? A nice meal and some amorous music? Not always.
There are times when all the romance (and luck) just simply will not do.
In those times, what you need is a specimen pot, a heap of drugs, so many ultra-sound scans that your wife or partner begins to glow in the dark and an unfeasibly large amount of tea.
Providing a rare yet enlightening male perspective on the world of IVF, 'Test tubes and testosterone' is one man's experience of in-fertility and the IVF journey he embarked on with his wife in order to start a family.
Told with humour, wit and insight, this book sheds light on issues that can be hard to discuss even with the closest of friends or relatives, making it a valuable book for anyone contemplating or going through IVF.
