Every birth story is different, just like every baby is different – all special, all unique, all loved. My journey to motherhood was a quick and easy one, but I have seen first hand just how different each families story of getting pregnant can be.
I remember being at my bestie’s bridal shower, about to “pop” and pregnant with my daughter. I felt huge, uncomfortable and so soooo ready to finally meet my baby. The host of the shower, a friend of mine, had been with her husband for years longer than I’d been with mine and they had been trying for years to conceive. She was happy for me, but at the same time, I could feel her pain, knowing how much she wanted to get pregnant – knowing just how hard they had tried.
A year and a half after having my daughter I gave birth to my second child, a son. I was over the moon happy, overjoyed with baby bliss, and of course – also very exhausted! My two kids came quick and getting pregnant also happened very easily. I never knew that I’d be done with two, that life circumstances and the eventual disintegration of my marriage would mean no third child.
My friend who thew the shower and her husband still had not been able to conceive, and I thought of her often. I knew how amazing a mom she would be and secretly rooted for them all the time. After years of surgeries, in vitro and hormones – they successfully got pregnant (and twice!).
I have other close friends who have used IVF and hormones to help speed up the process of conception and know just how hard it can be emotionally as well as financially on a couple. I wish it was as easy as it is in the movies, and feel very fortunate that this aspect of my life was so simple for us.
If you or a friend of yours are currently trying to conceive, there is a new option out there that allows you to aid the process prior to seeking professional help, which can be very costly. The Stork is an over the counter product that allows you to do cervical cap insemination at home, and can be discreetly purchased at Walgreen’s right next to the condoms and pregnancy tests. Easy peasy!
So what IS The Stork OTC? It is a medical device used in the privacy of your own bedroom during ovulation to help increase your chances of becoming pregnant. Using cervical cap insemination, The Stork enables the sperm to bypass the vaginal tract and delivers it close to the opening of the cervix, increasing your chances of a successful meet up!
If you are concerned about conceiving, The Stork might be the next step for your family! More information can be found at www.rinovum.com. Wishing you and your family many happy sonograms and baby giggles in the future!
