Michelle Obama Reveals IVF, Marriage Counseling

Michelle Obama accuses Trump of putting her family in danger – here’s how

"We were trying to get pregnant and it wasn't going well", Mrs. Obama, 54, writes in her upcoming memoir.

"As soon as I allowed myself to feel anything for Barack", she writes, "the feelings came rushing - a toppling blast of lust, gratitude, fulfilment, wonder". Becoming hits book stores on November 13.

The former first lady also opened up for the first time about suffering a miscarriage. Becoming is set to be released in the United States on Tuesday.

The Obamas opted for IVF, one form of assisted reproduction that typically involves removing eggs from a woman, fertilising them with sperm in a lab, and implanting the resulting embryo. While many lined up for the tickets to these events with touts re-selling them for thousands of dollars, the highlights received a mixed response on Twitter.

Mrs Obama, a former lawyer and hospital administrator, told ABC that after her miscarriage, "I felt like I failed because I didn't know how common miscarriages were because we don't talk about them".

President Barack Obama, first lady Michelle Obama, and their daughters, Sasha, top left, and Malia, step off Air Force One at Joint Base Cape Cod for a vacation, August 6, 2016. "We had to do IVF".

At times, she feared she was damaging her husband's 2008 presidential campaign, especially after conservatives seized on a line from one of her speeches - taken out of context - that for the first time as an adult she was "really proud" of her country.

He and Finch knocked up a 50-partnership before Marsh, on 22, got a thick edge off Rabada and de Kock took the catch. Or rather, Australia's batsmen repeatedly found ways to get out, with poor shot selection throughout the top order.

The former FLOTUS also explained that while many may think marriage is, "supposed to be easy", she actually believes that it is the bumps in the road that offer the chance for couples to learn more about one another - and themselves.

The former first lady also denounces Trump's "birther" campaign questioning her husband's citizenship, calling it bigoted and unsafe. Despite being the ex-president of the United States of America (USA), the family is still well respected in Washington.

Obama expresses shock in her book over the fact that many women chose a "misogynist" over Clinton, who she considered "an exceptionally qualified female candidate".

Asked about her comments on the White House lawn Friday, Trump suggested that Michelle only made them to generate interest in her book.

She recounts how her "body buzzed with fury" when she saw the tape. In her memoir, Michelle Obama described their actions as "crazy and mean-spirited".

Michelle Obama is opening up like never before.

Obama also goes into detail about her difficulties conceiving, revealing that she suffered a miscarriage.
