BabyDance! And Other TTC Lingo

If you’re new to the TTC world (#tryingtoconceive), baby dance is the cute way of saying “having sex with the intentions of making a baby” (e.g. “I’m ovulating, so we have to baby dance NOW!”).

BabyDance is also the name of a new fertility friendly lubricate from FairHaven Health. You may or may not know that not all lubes are created equal and if you’re trying to conceive, you shouldn’t use just any.  It took my husband and I 18 months to conceive our son and we did so with the help of fertility medication. (You can watch our journey here.) We were also well versed in every which way possible to help your odds of conceiving and we used PreSeed lubricate. BabyDance wasn’t out yet, but it would have been my top choice instead, because it’s paraben free!

Now, if you follow along on my YouTube channel, you know that my husband and I are just now recovering from the first 17 months of having our first child and aren’t quite sure where we are with having more children, so we are definitely not TTC. I don’t have a need for BabyDance right now, BUT FairHaven Health is letting me give away one to one of you!
