Tree on fire – Wordless Wednesday

I took this picture in November 2009 during a trip up north near Yosemite to visit family. This red Japanese maple was ahhhmazing and quite possibly my most favorite tree ever. This picture is completely unedited, the tree looked like it was on fire.

The first day “back”

baby bottles

Yesterday was my first official day “back”. Back to being home alone with too many kids. Back to work. Back to the quiet. Back to the chores. Back to the routine. Back to normal.  Back to the mess.

I am thankful that my husband was able to be home with us for 3 weeks and I am thankful that my mom came out from Oklahoma to extend my help for another week. Having cesarean sections are no joke and it takes a long time to physically recover.

I am thankful for my wonderful friends for bringing my family yummy dinners when we got home from the hospital. I am thankful for the emails, texts and words of encouragement from everyone. I am thankful for all of the help.

But I am most thankful to be back. Even if it is an overwhelming mess.

The Stork in home conception system is helping to build families naturally #TheStork

4 kids, The Stork, #TheStork

I may have a plethora of children now, almost too many to be honest, but it wasn’t that long ago that having a second child seemed nearly impossible. My husband and I tried to have a second child to no avail for almost 2 years. I can’t even fully describe the feelings of hopelessness and failure I felt during that time and honestly, thinking about that time of my life now immediately takes me back to that state of mind. I desperately wanted a sibling for my son and I felt out of control and under an extreme amount of pressure (of my own doing of course). I ended up going to a local OBGYN that prescribed Clomid – a prescription drug that amps up ovary production.  Although you cannot find research to support my opinion, I felt and still feel as though the Clomid treatment made me more hormonal and more anxious than my usual crazy self. That pregnancy and recovery was especially rocky (and by rocky I mean I was a crazy lady). Thankfully Clomid worked after just one cycle for me and 9 months later my daughter was born. But there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t wish for a different experience, perhaps something less aggressive, more private and definitely less hormonal.

The Era of Infertility

One thing that comforted me during the time of my own difficulty conceiving was knowing that I was not alone in my fertility issues. In fact many couples in the United States have fertility issues. Did you know that 1 in every 6 couples (7.3 million in the United States!) today experience difficulty conceiving? Compare today’s statistic to the 1970′s infertility statistic of only 1 out of 20 couples experiencing difficulty conceiving and the numbers are staggering. What is contributing to the era of infertility? A mixture of different environmental and lifestyle factors including (but not limited to) parental age and male estrogen imbalance.

There Is Hope to Build Families Naturally 

Parents today have a different fertility treatment option thanks to The Stork – an in home conception system. The Stork provides a natural, cost-effective option to help couples bridge the gap between natural conception and more aggressive treatments. It can be used in the privacy of your own home without affecting daily routine. The Stork is for couples with no known fertility issues and for those who are experiencing difficulty conceiving.

How Does It Work? 

The Stork works by cervical cap insemination, a process used safely by physicians since the 1950′s. However, what The Stork provides is the same process in the privacy of your own home. With the use of ” The Conceptacle” and “The Applicator” and a few simple instructions, The Stork gives parents hope…naturally.

Benefits of The Stork

  • Proven technique: Physician technique now available for use in the privacy of home
  • Safe: FDA Authorized prescription product. Non-reusable device
  • Natural: Drug-free product that requires no drugs
  • Non-invasive: Requires no injections or surgery
  • Easy-to-Use: Condom-like in collection, tampon-like in delivery
  • Cost-effective: Compared to “next-step” treatment options
