I call my last two boys, my 4th, and 5th, my miracle babies. I had already had three children when my husband and I decided to add to our family. My older children were five, ten, and fourteen at the time. So I though having another baby would be easy. I got pregnant right away with my first three kids so I never imagined that I would experience secondary infertility. We got pregnant the first time we tried, but sadly I miscarried at ten weeks. The infertility journey began when we decided to try again after the miscarriage. I thought I would get pregnant right away as I needed this to help me grieve the loss of a baby. I cried so hard when it did not happen. So I would tell myself it would happen next month but it did not. I went through a year and a half of sorrow and pain. My desire for a baby was so great and it was very hard to see my friends having babies during this year and a half. People would tell me to just enjoy the three kids I had but I felt incomplete without another baby. I did everything in my power to conceive this baby.
I read books about getting pregnant and how to pinpoint when my body was ovulating. The books went into detail about the best days to conceive. I knew when I was ovulating, with the help of ovulation tests. I was so in tuned to my body that I could feel the changes that happened before ovulation. I just could not understand why I was not getting pregnant. I tried everything to conceive a baby. I ate healthy foods, exercised, avoided certain foods, took supplements, and even used expensive lubricants made for getting pregnant. A year and a half went by and nothing worked. I was desperate for another baby so I made an appointment with an expensive fertility doctor. I went to the doctor and after several embarrassing invasive tests, they could find nothing wrong with my body. My husband even had tests done and again nothing was wrong on his end. I went on Clomid to increase my chances of becoming pregnant. I then took a test to pinpoint when I was ovulating. When the test showed I was, my husband had to give a sample. This was not fun for him as what guy wants to play with himself at the doctors. I then had an IUI, another costly procedure, to increase my chances of getting pregnant. I was one of the lucky ones and I became pregnant after the first IUI. I was overjoyed! Baby number 4 was on the way. I became pregnant with number 5 when this baby was 8 months old when we were not even trying. After being infertile for a year and a half, I thought I was not able to get pregnant again and was overjoyed to be pregnant once again.
I wish my husband and I could have taken a shortcut on our journey with having a baby. I wish there was a product my husband and I could have used at home to become pregnant instead of having to pay big bucks at the doctors office. I think the Stork OTC would have assisted my husband and I in getting pregnant faster. This FDA-cleared, over-the -counter device places the sperm as close as possible to the cervix, using cervical cap insemination, and I might not have needed the IUI. I could have avoided the drugs and expensive doctor. By using the Stork OTC, in the comfort of our bedroom, our baby making experience would have been an intimate one and not an embarrassing clinical one. Buying the Stork OTC is easy to purchase too! The Stork can be purchased at CVS. No shots, scans, doctor appointments, or prescriptions are needed. Getting pregnant is hard enough so let the Stork help.
