“Two years later, I’m even more grateful that I started my hormone-free journey the way I did. It has helped me prevent pregnancy without having to worry.

“It taught me so much about my cycle that I felt so in tune with my body when it came time to make the transition and plan for a baby.

“Each and every one of our fertility journeys is so different. And while I’ve been open about taking a little longer than expected to conceive, I truly believe it would have taken even longer if I hadn’t made that switch 2 years ago and started using Natural Cycles .

“There aren’t many products that can make such a big impact and change your life as Natural Cycles. Best of all I can use it again to prevent pregnancy once Baby O’Connor gets here.’

Montana recently opened up to her followers about how she suffered from severe cramps, saying, “I woke up last night because I had cramps. I have cramps from the start and they feel like my normal period pains.

“I don’t hear too many people talk about it during pregnancy. Unfortunately, it has taken a hit over the past few days.

“I’m so tired all the time and I don’t need an extra excuse to stay in bed because I was a lazy b***h before I got pregnant.”

Montana recently revealed that she and Mark have yet to find out the gender of their child, writing, “Also we don’t know the gender for anyone who asks…a lot of people say they can tell based on the bump, which is cool.” .

“I’m not sure if you can tell as my tummy is pretty small at the moment but I’d love to hear your theories! I have a feeling it might be a girl just feeling in my bones! Place your bets!’

It comes after the reality star revealed she was “so shocked” to find out she was pregnant because earlier in the year she tried to conceive but it didn’t happen.

She took to Instagram to provide Q&A as she shared how she and Beau Mark struggled to conceive due to her low estrogen levels.
