Thank you Astroglide TTC for sponsoring today’s conversation!
There really is nothing quite like motherhood. I remember being so terrified and nervous when I found out I was pregnant with my first child. I had a lot of self doubt that stemmed from a lack of knowledge. I was only 22 and had only been married for a couple weeks when I found out I was pregnant so I was still very young. Maybe some of my anxiety stemmed from being responsible for another human life for the first time. It may sound cliche, but as soon as I locked eyes with my beautiful baby boy it was the first time I had ever experienced love at first sight. I welled up with tears and couldn’t take my eyes off of him. It turned out that being a mother was a piece of cake; all of my instincts kicked right in.
6 years later I found out I was pregnant with my 2nd child and I remember being so excited and actually really eager. All of the hesitations that I had the first time never reared their ugly head and the whole pregnancy was magical. Well, it was rather uncomfortable because both of my children were around the 10 pound mark, but I just remember feeling a sense of peace and knew everything would be perfect. And it was.
Both of my children were little miracle surprises in my life but I know there are so many people out there that are trying hard to conceive and I wanted to let you know about a really cool new product on the market to aid you in your journey towards motherhood.
Astroglide TTC™ is specially formulated for couples who are trying to conceive; Astroglide TTC supports fertility with adjusted pH levels, compatible osmolality and a consistency similar to your body’s cervical mucus. In each box there are 8 pre-filled disposable 5mL applicators, which I personally find extremely hygienic.
You may be wondering how this works. When you are trying to conceive it is extremely important to provide an environment where the sperm has the optimal chance for survival. That means pH, osmolality (the concentration of substances like
sodium and potassium), and the consistency of the egg white cervical mucus are all factors. Most lubricants can actually inhibit sperm mobility and studies have shown that Astroglide TTC is actually compatible with sperm, oocytes and embryos and it allows the sperm to move more freely. Like all Astroglide lubricants, it temporarily relieves vaginal dryness during sexual activity.
