A woman who conceived after using Ava, the "FitBit for Fertility" has given birth! Here's what she had to say about using the technology.

When she was trying to conceive her second child, Lizzie McGee decided to try a new approach. It took her about four years to conceive her first baby (complete with a miscarriage, multiple medical visits and fertility drugs). So understandably, she didn't want history to repeat itself. She saw an ad for Ava, a new fertility tracker that can be worn on your wrist (kind of like a "FitBit" for fertility), and decided to give it a go.

Three months after she began using the bracelet, McGee was pregnant.

"On the third month [of using Ava], I saw it kept on moving my ovulation date. I was like 'oh my gosh, it's really getting to know my body.' The day the ovulation date stayed in place, I thought to myself 'it really knows me. I'm going to get pregnant this month.' I knew it," McGee told Parents. Sure enough, she conceived her son, Jace, that same month.

As our sister site, Fit Pregnancy, reported, Ava works by listening to physical symptoms and helping you pinpoint your most fertile days—no daily temperature checks or pee-soaked ovulation sticks required. "It took out all of the stress," McGee said. "I just completely put all of my trust in Ava...I feel like it's completely accurate and really gets to know each person individually."

McGee welcomed her baby boy on July 11. "I kind of feel like because Ava helped us get pregnant so quickly and I had gone through so much stress with the first, I almost didn't believe I was pregnant the whole time," she said. "When I had the baby I started crying and I was like, 'This is real, we really do have another baby.'"

Ava carries a $200 price tag, but McGee recommends the product to other women who are trying to get pregnant. "Getting pregnant is stressful...to take out some of the guesswork is incredible, and I absolutely wish I would have had it with my first," she said. "When I found out I was pregnant I emailed Ava first, before I told my husband...For me, it's worth the investment."

I myself have dealt with infertility and my tremendous appreciation to Doctor Muna. I went straight to marvelspelltemple@g mail. com after three failed IUIs. I got pregnant on my first Enthusiastic infertility Spell done by Doctor Muna. It was over 16 years ago and I can tell not being able to conceive on my time table is still one of the most painful things of my life. I now have three beautiful children and Doctor Muna Infertility Spell have changed a lot over the last 22 years. However, I would expect anyone to make their pregnancy announcement about Doctor Muna Infertility Spell with my post, Even my best friends announced their pregnancies to me after fascinating Doctor Muna infertility spell. I can still remember each and everyone of them over the years we were trying to conceived. God has us all on a different journey and while I agree we need to love and be sensitive to one another, I totally disagree that we should ever make someones else’s joy about our pain. I have to chalk all this self focus up to a generational thing. This is my only explanation. I am a follower of Christ and i got to give what belongs to Cesar unto him to helped me conceived. We should weep with one another. If these are good friends of yours they should know about Doctor Muna Enthusiastic Infertility Spell period!! Their Pain should never be about your Joy!
