Yes, Exercise Can Hurt Your Fertility. Here’s How to Exercise Safely.

There is a long history of sexist attempts to exclude women from athletic activities due to concerns about fertility. As recently as 2010, the ancient myth of the falling uterus was cited as a reason why ski jumping was "not appropriate for ladies." Needless to say, this idea is completely ridiculous.

Jade & Tanner Got Pregnant with Ava!

Thank you everyone for all the support and for sharing your stories since we announced our pregnancy on Wednesday! We are so excited! For those of you who have been following us for a while, you may have seen our past post back in November about using the @avawomen bracelet to help us get pregnant faster. We got pregnant really soon after we started using Ava! I wore the bracelet every night while sleeping and Ava told us which five days were the best days to try for a baby each month. It took so much stress out of the process and was so easy to use. Since so many of you have kindly opened your hearts to me and have shared your stories about trying to get pregnant, I wanted to share what worked for us. Also, I've partnered with Ava to get you all a $20 off coupon code: JANNERBABY I'll be using Ava for all our future pregnancies and cycle tracking between babies. Thank you, Ava.
