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.
Hi Guys!!! First things First…. I want to thank everyone for their kind words, encouragement and excitement since my post last week about #BabyMakingDays! It feels so nice to have such a great support group around us!!
Now, It’s week 2 already for the #BabyMakingDays campaign and this week I am going to tell you more about the Clearblue® Fertility Monitor I have been given. I can’t tell you how many friends of mine tried more than 6 months to conceive and it is looking like that is our path as well. One of my hopes for this series of posts is that it will help someone and maybe show them a new option to try out in the process of trying to conceive.
I have to say I was surprised at just how “high tech” this touch screen monitor is and after being initially overwhelmed by it, I took the time to read the manual and felt much more at ease. Ya, I am usually not a “manual reader” I am more of a “Trial by fire” kinda girl! ha! (Maybe that is why I am not pregnant yet! ha) #readthemanual
Here is what the screen looks like and it is great at prompting you on what you need to do next. First up was setting up your cycle.
Anywhere from 10-20 days of the month you will test daily. What does that mean? I use the fertility monitor sticks each day the screen tells me to (below, easy peasy). The sticks go into the monitor where my ovulation is tracked.
The monitor will then show you many different screens such as Low, High and Peak! But of course this is the BIGGIE! When I see this I know that today could be “THE DAY”! HAHA!
Using the Clearblue® Fertility Monitor is different, it is very easy to operate and it helps me to feel confident that we are on the right track. I will also say that since we have entered into this whole process of TTC it is quite amazing how complex everything is.
How has TTC affected our marriage?
Honestly, it’s for the better! I think since we started TTC at the end of last October we are more open with one another and heck, you have to be! We communicate more and we actually laugh more…. I mean at times this whole process is pretty comical and you need to just laugh it off. Laugh off the weirdness of it all! ha! I can’t be the only one feels that way from time to time, can I? And of course take time out to have fun with one another like this past Monday night we went to the Okc Thunder game vs The Nuggets!
