Meet Percept From Early Sense, The World’s First Contact-Free Fertility Monitor

 

As someone who’s struggled with fertility, believe me I understand the frustration that sometimes can come along with trying to grow your family.  Even though you’re ‘doing everything right’ sometimes there is no rhyme or reason to why you can’t conceive.  Thanks to EarlySense, there’s now a device that can help you increase your chances of getting pregnant while taking away all the frustration of fertility tracking.

 

 

When trying to conceive my daughter Jade that you all read so much about, it took 6, yes SIX, long frustrating years.  There were so many ways I tried to track fertility but for one reason or another, my attempts never panned out leading to month after month of disappointment every time my period reared it’s ugly head.  Thanks to Percept, the world’s first contact-free fertility monitor, you’ll be able to track your fertility and even log other symptoms that may coincide with your cycle.  Long gone are the days of painful, time consuming, frustratingly inaccurate ways to track your fertility.  No bands, bracelets, patches, sticks, saliva tests, interpreting data, weird-looking thermometers, remembering to pee, remembering to track, calculating, analyzing. Because when it comes to fertility tracking, it should be seamless.

Understanding your body is key to being in control of your fertility and conceiving faster. EarlySense Percept is an under-mattress, clinically-proven fertility tracker that accurately pinpoints your dates of ovulation, fertility window, and period by seamlessly monitoring physiological signals including heart rate and breathing.

 

 

You’ll need to download the Percept companion app, which is super easy to do even for the less tech-savvy users.  The instructions are easy to follow, and you can set up your unit in just a matter of a couple minutes.

 

 

Once you’re connected to the app you’ll find TONS of great information to help you keep track of all of your fertility needs.  You can see when you’re predicted to be ovulation, when you’re peak chances of getting pregnant are, you can even see what your sleep patterns are like which is pretty cool!  A good night’s sleep is often underestimated when trying to get pregnant but believe me, it matters!

I’m sure you’re all finding yourself wondering just how this cool little device works?  It’s really quite simple:

  • The sensor sits under your mattress and constantly yet quietly captures your body’s signals while you sleep.
  • Those signals are translated into fertility data, which is instantly sent to the app on your smartphone through bluetooth.
  • Your period and fertility window predictions become more accurate every night with Percept’s artificial intelligence algorithms.
  • Percept provides the data you need at your fingertips when you need it without intruding your life.

Pretty simple right?  Where was Percept all those years ago when trying to conceive my little Jade bug?  This super smart device can help you accurately predict your next period, dates of ovulation, and 6-day fertility window based on physiological signals including heart rate and breathing.  Will there be a baby #4 for the Bissonette family in the near future?  Only time will tell, but I’d like to think that with Percept by my side the road won’t be nearly as long and frustrating as it was all those years ago.

Whether you’re shopping for yourself or you find yourself reading this review looking for a perfect gift for your wife for the holidays, you really can’t go wrong with Percept by Early Sense.  A child is a gift that gives for a lifetime and with the help of Percept on your side, you’ll be sure to create a precious little gift (or two) that will last an eternity 🙂 .

My 5 year old daughter is a carbon copy of me and has quickly picked up the love for everything nail polish and loves it even more when we have matching manicures.  If you have ever even been around a 5 year old girl, you’ll know that they aren’t great at sitting still.  My daughter loves sitting for me to do her nails, but getting her to sit still long enough to let the nail polish dry is absolutely impossible.  Within 10 minutes her manicure gets ruined and it was just a big fat waste of time.  I picked some matching colors from both the Miracle Gel and Insta-Dri lines so in about a minute my little girl is ready to go and our “matchy” nails stay looking fabulous.

What could be cuter than a matching mommy and me manicure this summer?  Thanks to Sally Hansen and the wide variety of colors, you and your little girl can customize your looks to your own personal styles.  I absolutely love the look we came up with and 7 days later our nails are still looking just as fabulous as day one.

Head to your local retailers to pick up some Sally Hansen polish that best suits you and get summer ready today!  (If you’re looking to purchase the colors we used, the Miracle Gel colors are Sugar Fix, Street Flair, and Shock Wave.  The Insta-Dri colors are Set Sail, Lively Lilac, and Pink Blink.)
