Thanks to Fertility Planit for sponsoring this post and giving me a Clearblue® Fertility Monitor. While I have received compensation for this post, all opinions are my own.

Where to begin my friends, probably with the obvious that The Savage's are trying to have a baby! I know, I know finally after seven years of marriage the time is right! Most people gave up asking us "When are you going to have a baby" after year two and we were completely fine with that and now here we are!

What took us so long? 
The answer is easy, we wanted to be in the best place we could be in our marriage before bringing a baby into our lives. The past seven years have been hard for us with Matt switching careers within Farmers and us uprooting our lives (TWICE) to move across the country. All of that created stress in our lives and in our marriage which we worked thru. We may have fought thru some (or most) of it but we made it! This past year after our move to Denver things just seemed to CLICK for us. We entered into this wonderful, new phase of our marriage and we needed it! 
When did we make the decision to start trying?
We talked about it over the Summer last year and decided that we would make our Mexico Vacation last October (to celebrate our anniversary) the kick off! So I wouldn't count October as a "full month of Trying To Conceive" but we have been trying since then! It's funny how your whole life your goal can be to "Not have a baby" and then when your goal is to have one you just assume it will magically happen over night! Well... it doesn't, so that leads me to today!

How did it come about that I have connected with Fertility Planit?
I was asked to participate in their #BabyMakingDays campaign and talk about some "act of the universe" that we are actually trying to conceive... so it was a match made in Heaven, huh?!
Sharing our #BabyMakingDays journey with everyone is exciting and scary! But I pride myself on being an open book so why wouldn't I share this with you all as well. As for Matt? He is all on board, in fact when I discussed this opportunity with him he was the one who said "Why would you not?"

I am also really lucky to be one of the first people to receive the new Fertility Monitor with touch screen. In the coming weeks I will be sharing our journey with you and trying out the new Clearblue® product below! I am excited to learn how it works and how it can help us in the process of TTC.  The Clearblue® Fertility Monitor with Touch Screen helps you maximize your chances of getting pregnant because it is designed to detect all your fertile days and at my age and with almost four months of TTC having past this will be a huge help!
We are all in now!! I am excited to share this journey with you!!!!!! #fertilityfriday
