This is where kegg comes into play. Timing intercourse appropriately during the most fertile days is vital, especially when you don’t want to waste any time or precious eggs. As these ladies shared, tracking fertile days with other methods, such as LH strips, yielded inconclusive results and frustration over missing valuable fertile days. These women were proud to share their success stories using kegg.
Our first mama’s story is very moving. She shares “After 9 years of marriage, and originally thinking we didn’t want kids together (he already has a daughter from a previous relationship), my husband and I realized our values and priorities had changed, and we really wanted a child of our own. I had just turned 41 when we made this decision, and he was 34, about to be 35. I honestly didn’t know if I could even conceive naturally this late in life. I was on hormonal birth control for about 10 years prior to this, so I had no clue how that had affected me either.
I stopped taking my birth control and we started trying. This whole new world of trying to conceive was mind blowing to me. The terminology, all the different ways to test for ovulation, and the timing of it all pretty much stressed me out immediately. I was talking to my coworkers about it, and one of them said they tried for 4 years before finally conceiving, and this terrified me! I didn’t have 4 years! So I started researching, and stumbled across kegg while searching for fertility trackers. I looked into it for a week or so and decided to bite the bullet and get a kegg. I am so glad I did! I was using LH strips, tracking apps, and BBT readings prior to kegg, but they were not very clear cut for me and always left me wondering. I learned the way to read a kegg chart pretty quickly, and it changed everything. I finally felt more in control in this journey, and more confident that we were timing our efforts in a better way. I would send screenshots of my chart to my husband when the chart started to trend downward, and it was exciting!
I stopped using other tracking methods, because I felt like they added more stress, and we solely used kegg from then on. We did have several months of discouragement when we didn’t conceive that cycle, but we didn’t give up. He was working opposite shifts from me during several months of that time, so we couldn’t always take full advantage during our fertile valley either. But, we were able to conceive naturally during my 7th cycle using kegg! I was in complete shock!! I had actually thought I had started my period that cycle, and was very upset, but it turned out to be implantation bleeding. Now, I am currently 34 weeks pregnant, and we are so close to meeting our baby boy. I cannot be more grateful for the help kegg provided. I learned from it that I ovulated earlier than the average person, and I don’t know if we would have ever gotten the timing right without that knowledge. I know natural conception isn’t always a possibility for everyone, but I highly recommend kegg if you are trying to conceive. It really gets you in tune with your cycles, and gives you the tools necessary to help you feel more confident and comfortable on what is inevitably a stressful journey.
We can’t wait to hear of your kegglet’s debut, and are wishing you a healthy and blissful remainder of your pregnancy!
