One of the hardest moments, after I got pregnant, was to share the news with my friends who have been trying to conceive for years without success. You can’t share your “good news” when you know that the other person will ask herself “Why not me?” The closer the person is to you, the more difficult it is. While my friends tried all ovulation tracking applications under the Sun, I decided to leave it to chance. And I got pregnant as soon as I went off the Pill. It was both a surprise and relief. I knew that with an irregular period it would be hard to predict fertile days.
And then I heard about Ava bracelet, a smart ovulation tracker that collects your data and creates a personalized picture tailored to you. It can help you track your cycles, fertility or pregnancy. If your goal is to get pregnant, for example, Ava bracelet can help you track five fertile days per cycle with nearly 90% accuracy. A friend of mine uses Ava bracelet exactly for this reason and finds it very helpful. I decided to try it to get to know my cycles better as every time I am moody, suffer from headaches and have insane cravings for chocolate & croissants my period is around the corner.
How does it work?
You have to wear the bracelet overnight so that while you sleep, the sensors collect data from nine locations. It measures, for example, the temperature of your skin, your pulse rate, breathing rate, heart rate variability ratio, perfusion, movement, bioimpedance, and heat loss. When you wake up, all you need to do is download the data into Ava application on your phone.
It is so easy and practical. And I like that month after month I understand my body better. You know, I have never thought that I could suffer from psychological stress. If you asked me, I would have said that I was not stressed at all. But my body and Ava bracelet tracker told a different story. I felt tired and got sick several times this winter. After using Ava bracelet, I could see that I did not get enough sleep (no surprise when you have a small baby) which translated into lower immunity. That is just another example of how useful it is.
We have not decided yet if we try for a second child. I still don’t see how I would manage to take care of two children, have time and energy to nourish the relationship with my husband, go to work, run a blog and do videos over the weekend. It just does not seem possible. I should decide fast as I will be forty years old this fall. But one thing IS clear: if we change our mind, I would start using my Ava bracelet to track my ovulation to be aware of my fertile days. The other day I lent my Ava bracelet to a girlfriend who is trying to get pregnant…She loves it because it is easy to use and makes it easier for her to keep track of her fertile days. And I can’t wait to see when she shares her “great news” with me.
