My Pregnancy Story

When I was 19, I became pregnant with my daughter. Although I was young, it was quite an exciting experience. Though I got pregnant easily, I had lots of medical problems after that. The most dangerous was Toxemia. Though I didn’t feel particularly bad, and I worked right up until I was diagnosed with Toxemia, I did have to be induced 4 days later as it was the safest option for Amber and myself. And, lucky for me, she was a perfectly healthy little doll baby.

My Pregnancy Story

Unfortunately, I miscarried twice after that, so I consider Amber to be a wonderful gift. I feel I was lucky to have the one. But not everyone can get pregnant. And I think everyone that wants a child should have the best shot possible at having one. So, I am sharing with you today something that can help you up your odds of conceiving. Stork OTC can be purchased at Walgreens in the Family Planning section.

If I ever decide to try to have another child, I am going to do everything that I can to stack the odds in my favor. I was anemic while pregnant, so I will make sure to take iron pills daily. I also had Toxemia, as I stated, so I will do everything I can to be as stress free as possible. I will also talk to my doctor to see if I should use something like Stork OTC to strengthen my odds of getting pregnant.

About Stork OTC

Stork OTC is indicated for over-the-counter home use by couples having difficulty conceiving by themselves due to low sperm count, sperm immobility or unfavorable vaginal environment. A clinical study demonstrated that 85% of subjects completing the study showed a higher concentration of sperm within the cervical mucus when using Stork OTC as compared to natural intercourse.

    I got pregnant really easily both times, but I know some women really struggle. I am glad there is something there to help those women.

  2. I am so sorry for your losses. I cannot even begin to fathom the heartbreak and the stress that women go through trying to conceive. It took a year to get pregnant for us which I believe is normal. I have a lot of medical issues and we weren’t sure that we were going to get pregnant. I am so grateful every day for my guy. We are only having one. It breaks my heart that women struggle like this but I’m thankful that there are things like this that woman can do to conceive easier now. All the best.

  3. I was just the opposite. Took me forever to finally get pregnant with my three children. Which looking back was okay and fitted the way we live. I was so healthy and felt so good while carrying all my babies. Hope this products helps other women.

  4. I have not been pregnant before and I’m not trying either. I have a few friends who’ve miscarried and I fear that with age that it might happen to me.

  5. Many women who have not had the bad experiences don’t really understand how difficult they can be. One of my daughter’s miscarried and has serious problems, struggling to conceive. Hopefully through the assistance of her physician their plan will work. It took me 8 years to conceive my second child but she is quite the blessing to me.

  6. Thanks for sharing your story. I know that so many women have difficultly getting pregnant so it’s wonderful to share your story in hopes of supporting and encouraging them.

  7. I am so sorry for your losses, I know several women who have had trouble getting pregnant. I didn’t have trouble getting pregnant, but I did have high risk pregnancies.

  8. I have heard about this product and I was happy to hear that it was available to help people who were having trouble conceiving. I had recommended it to my friends who were having trouble conceiving as another option for them to try.

  9. I am so sorry for your miscarriages. I have had one myself it is devastating. I have never heard of stork and I wish it was around when I was trying to conceive. I’m happy this is available.

  10. I am sorry for your miscarriages. I miscarried my first baby when I was 6 months pregnant. It is a rough experience. But thankfully I conceived easily after that. Stork sounds like a great thing for parents trying to conceive.

  11. Thanks for sharing your story, sorry to hear about your losses. I haven’t heard of the Stork product before, but it sounds like it would be really helpful to a lot of women because so many people have trouble trying to conceive. Toxemia sounds scary, glad to hear everything is ok now.

  12. Amazing to me how so many women become pregnant everyday yet our bodies react so differently. I love that you were able to share your story. It’s nice to be able to find someone that went through similar issues.

  13. Claudia Krusch says:

    My friend just used Stork OTC to help her conceive. She is now 2 months along and so excited. Stork OTC is a great product.

  14. It makes me sad to know of stories of women who have difficulty conceiving. Although I did not have any issues like this with my three pregnancies, I know of a cousin and a good friend who resorted to IVF. It is good to know that there are OTC products couples can use to help increase the chance of conceiving. I wish you well, and don’t lose hope. You will blessed with your own little bundle of joy, in His Time. Hugs!

    At this time I don’t know anyone that wants to have a baby but I will share this post anyway. The Stork OTC can really improve someones chances to getting pregnant and I believe it is an amazing product. Thanks for sharing your story and the information.

  18. Thanks for sharing your truth. I had a miscarriage between kid number 1 and kid number 2. It certainly gave me a greater appreciation for my children.
