Trying to Conceive with Stork OTC

When we first started the trying to conceive journey I was terrified it would take us a while to get pregnant. My husband was deployed when we decided we would start trying. Once he was home of course. I stopped taking birth control about 4 months before he came home. I researched which foods were helpful when trying to conceive and which foods were harmful. I do not remember them all, but the one that sticks out to me, 5 years later, is peas. Did you know peas are a food you should avoid when trying to conceive? I LOVE peas. This is a food I had to cut out and was sad about. A few of the other foods I remember are caffeine, alcohol and excess sugar. Since I am not a big soda or coffee drinker, this was not hard for me. I do not drink alcohol so this was not a lifestyle change at all. Sugar, however, was VERY hard to let go!

I also stopped exercising intensely. Instead I would do cardio workouts meant to burn fat and not gain muscle. This meant I would try to keep my heart rate around 140. Exercise is great when trying to conceive, during pregnancy and after. A slower pace is just fine! It is a warm up to motherhood.

Something else I did to prepare my body for pregnancy was taking prenatal vitamins. I discovered that folic acid is a very important vitamin during the first few weeks of pregnancy, typically before a woman even knows she is pregnant. Since this is not a vitamin many of us take or get enough of on a daily basis, I started taking prenatal vitamins for a few months before trying to conceive. I wanted to give my body and my baby the best start possible.

Since we had not started trying and did not have any difficulties yet, I did limit my research to what I could do for my body, and not what my husband could do for his. I was not sure we would have any problems, but it was a fear of mine. I think most women who desperately want to have a baby also have this fear. We are lucky that we did not have any problems when trying to conceive. We were able to get pregnant the first month we tried. Maybe it was the steps I took to prepare my body or maybe it was the fact that my husband and I were apart for 6 months before trying to conceive. Either way, the first month was eventful!

One of the tips I received when trying to conceive was to lay down for a bit after, or to elevate my hips to allow the sperm a better chance at reaching their goal. Stork OTC is a great way to help sperm stay at the cervix for an extended period of time without having to lay down or stay in a weird position.

Stork OTC is an over the counter conception device that keeps sperm at your cervix for up to 6 hours. Stork OTC is perfect for those with low sperm count, sperm mobility issues, an unfavorable vaginal environment or unexplained infertility. Stork OTC is also perfect for women trying to conceive with donor sperm. You can watch a few videos on how Stork OTC works here.

You can purchase Stork OTC online or at Walgreens. Stork OTC is located in the family planning section, which also happens to be the baby aisle! When you purchase a Stork OTC in store at Walgreens during March and April 2017 you receive 5,000 points if you are a Balance Rewards Member! Signing up is easy and free!

Join us for a Twitter party on March 27 at 8pm EST! There will be prizes and tips for trying to conceive!

I am a wife, a mother, and a lover of all things baby. I have 3 year old and 1 year old daughters and an amazing husband, My Love. I try to focus on bringing healthy, eco friendly products into my life to help improve my family's everyday experience. If it is a baby product I have probably played with it, used it and have an opinion on it. If you do not see a review of whatever item you are looking for, send me an email or leave a comment! There is a good chance I know about it and have an opinion :)
