First Response Triple Check
Hello & Happy Thursday!!
While I could talk about my journey to becoming to a clinical nutritionist and food all day, I also like to take a moment to talk about real life milestones, such as..
Prenatal nutrition was such a joy to take in undergrad and I was personally mesmerized by how the body organically accommodates a baby that I went on to take an elective grad class focusing on intensive care for newborns. Based on research and what we know today, it’s evident that our wellness is programmed long before we even take our first breath. Through living and breathing nutrition, at 33, married for roughly a year, we are on the baby train and ready to go! The “baby train” that I assumed would have perhaps a few road bumps, but overall be a short trip. While I was greatly mistaken in that it sometimes just takes time without any complications, we’re embracing it the best we can!
For many couples they adhere to the guidelines of waiting until 1 year to seek out a fertility specialist to investigate potential underlying health issues preventing pregnancy. Being an over ambitious woman (always lol), I wanted to know firsthand what we were dealing with at around 7 months. We found the best specialist, conducted numerous blood tests, had a semen analysis, reviewed the shape of may uterus, and proceeded with what is referred to as an “HSG” test, which sends fluid through your fallopian tubes to clear any blockages. While everything checked out fine, we are still playing the waiting game.
From the CDC National Survey from 2011-2015, the number of women aged 15-44 who had ever used infertility services was said to be 7.3 million.
It can take couples naturally upwards of 1 year to conceive without any complications. So if you’re in that same boat, and feel like you just want to “stop paddling”, try and remember to simply just relax. I’m always put at ease knowing that there are countless couples who wait years to conceive and are faced with a myriad of health hurdles to overcome. If you don’t believe me, join a women’s “ttc group”, you’ll feel so lucky to just be “in the waiting line”.
The silver lining of the waiting game is that you obtain more knowledge about your body, ovulation, conception, and how commonplace infertility is. In addition, you’ll also become well versed on all the latest products in the realm of pregnancy!
There are countless products on the market today to make navigating pregnancy more seamless. From ovulation watches, ovulation devices, to sperm analyzers, and even modern pregnancy tests such as First Response. I’ve learned so much in such a short time. Countless women struggle for years with no explanation and others have never ending hurdles to conceiving. I hope to shed light on the latest products and share my experience navigating it all.
