Apparently telling your "conception story" isn't a thing?

Updated: Aug 20, 2021

When I tried to get pregnant I was 32. After 6 months of trying, I was told to wait until 12 months to see a fertility doctor (annoying at 32). 12 months passed so we saw the fertility specialist and learned about the insane, not covered by insurance, price tag.

I decided to try and do what the doctors would do (IUI), but without the price tag using my biology knowledge . My friends have all heard probably more than once, this crazy "conception story" for about 3 years and how it actually worked. They also like to joke that no one should be going around asking people at a cocktail party in your 30's, "Do you want to hear my conception story?".

What can I say? When you make something and it works you want to talk about it! My daughter Lois... is the product of my invention . Thus we first called these the "Lois-makers".
