How The Stork Is Helping Me TTC Baby #2

This is a sponsored conversation from Mums the Word Network and The Stork OTC. All opinions are my own.


If you have been reading my blog for a while you already know that we started the Journey for baby #2 a little over a year ago. We both went on a ketogenic weight loss journey in August to see if that would help our chances. In May we made a huge life change of moving from New York City to Texas so TTC took a place on the back burner for a couple of months. Now that we are settled and happy in Texas, TTC is fresh on our minds for baby #2.

Since I am in my late 30s and my husband is in his early 40s we are doing everything possible to give us the best chances to become pregnant as soon as possible.  I used The Stork OTC on the best day for me to conceive according to my basal temperatures and ovulation charts. We wanted to try everything possible before seeking help from a doctor so The Stork OTC was the perfect conception aid for us.


The Stork OTC is an at-home conception aid that helps couples conceive naturally without the help or expense of a doctor's visit. You can easily buy The Stork OTC over-the-counter at stores like CVS. The Stork OTC helps get the sperm exactly where it needs to be for the best chance of conception. The instructions are super easy to follow and the design of the conception aid really makes it goof-proof.


We used it a few days ago and it was really easy and comfortable to do. I love that after using it I could get up and do my normal household routine while waiting the 4 to 6 hours. I am really anxious and hopeful that I will see positive results in a couple of weeks.


Go to StorkOTC.com for more information and find out where you can purchase it for yourself. You can also buy 1, Get 1 50% off with code STORK50 at CVS.com for the months of July and August.

Bacon Jewelry, Perfect for a Keto'er

One of my favorite things about living a ketogenic lifestyle is that I get to eat bacon and still lose weight. Since I am eating a high fat and low carb diet, bacon is one of the top foods to eat because it fits the macros of a ketogenic diet.

When my best friend and I were talking about my journey on the ketogenic diet she quickly told me that she could make me a custom beaded charm of bacon! Since bacon is basically the mascot of the ketogenic lifestyle I got super excited to proudly display my love for bacon.


My best friend Angela has been creating customized beaded jewelry for quite some time now. She takes the time to create exactly what you want by designing a chart and giving you different color options. After the design is approved she creates each design, one bead at a time using the best materials. She mostly uses delica seed beads, size 11, and Fireline 17lb pull thread. Swarovski Pearls and jewels are also used in some of her designs.




Alexiwing Designs accepts custom orders through Etsy, Instagram, and/or Facebook page. You can also email her at angela@alexiwing.com
