At Home Cervical Cap Insemination Kit: The Stork® OTC

At Home Cervical Cap Insemination Kit: The Stork® OTC

 “This is a sponsored conversation from Mums the Word Network and The Stork® OTC, an at home cervical cap insemination kit. All opinions are my own.”

I can’t believe that I’m spending the afternoon planning Reese’s 9th birthday. Where the heck did the time go. I seriously feel like she was born just yesterday. Either she’s growing up at lightning speed or I’m just getting old really fast…It just might be a little of both.

The other day we were looking at old pictures from when I brought her home from the hospital when she asked me, “What was it like when I was in your tummy mommy”. I went into instant panic mode thinking this was leading to the inevitable birds and the bees talk but I was wrong (whew…dodged that bullet lol).

I wish I could have given her this amazing feel-good story about how I loved being pregnant but the truth is, I was sick as a dog. I had what doctors called Hyperemesis Gravidarum which in layman’s terms means I spent every day of my pregnancy uncontrollably vomiting. It was awful and I remember thinking, “my gosh, I can’t wait for this to be over”. There was even an incident when I upchucked in a Ralphs grocery store.  My friends and family laughed at the irony of “ralphing” in a Ralphs…the humor was lost on me back then but now I can laugh about it. But in all seriousness, I was over it.

What makes it even more ironic was before getting pregnant I remember wanting nothing more than that little line on the pregnancy test to show up with a friend lol.  I think we tried everything under the sun short of fertility treatments to get pregnant, which looking back, I honestly didn’t need. What I really needed was patience, but when you have baby fever, every month that goes by makes you crazy.

I remember doing a lot of research online about things I could eat, or positions I could lay in to get pregnant faster. I became known as the queen of the headstand lol. Then, after about 6 months of trying, that little line turned blue and showed up with a friend. Heck yeah..two lines meant pregnant and I remember thinking it’s about time. But I also couldn’t help but think about all those along the way I had met in chat rooms and Facebook groups. We had all formed a bond and had become friends and it broke my heart that a few of them didn’t have it as easy. They needed a little more than patience, they had true fertility issues.

    Ok, I’m not gonna lie. I have absolutely zero use for this product in my life. That being said, WOW I didn’t know you could do this at home! I mean, aside from the obvious traditional ways, of course. It’s nice to know that people who need these things don’t have to pay to go in to a clinic and have the insemination done that way.

    I’m so sorry to hear you had such a rough pregnancy! That does sound like a hard 9 months but the outcome is just wonderful! Little Reese was a cutie (and I’m sure still is, of course!) Its great that these kits exist!

    I’ve never heard of this but it sounds like a great option to help couples get pregnant. It seems a little pricey but then I thought of how much other methods cost and realized this is definitely an inexpensive option to try.

    I am so sorry you had a rough pregnancy. I can’t even begin to imagine what it must have been like. It’s definitely great that kits like these exist.

    First of all, Reese is gorgeous! Secondly, I had no idea they made at-home kits for insemination! That’s way cool! I’m not ready to have children yet, but when the time comes this will be interesting to keep in mind if we struggle conceiving!

  14. November 24, 2017 / 8:37 am

    I’ve never heard of this kit but it sounds like a good option for couples with fertility issues. Little Reese is so beautiful, best wishes for her upcoming Birthday!
