Contest: Win a Conceivex Conception Kit
This contest has ended. Read about the winners.
Conceivex, Inc. has agreed to give away three of its Conception Kits (to eligible U.S. residents only, see contest rules below). If you have friends experiencing trouble conceiving, please let them know about this contest.
"The Conception Kit is designed for couples who want to enhance their opportunity to conceive in the privacy of home. Each kit contains the only FDA-cleared cervical cap for at-home conception, fertility prediction tools, semen collectors, pregnancy tests and timing wheels. These components are designed to be used together for up to three months. The Conception Cap, that comes in the kit, puts all available sperm into direct contact with the cervical mucus so more of the healthy sperm have an opportunity to reach an egg.
The Conception Kit is designed to address the following problems in the privacy of home… For men: low sperm count or low sperm motility. For women: tilted cervix, timing of ovulation, or hostile vaginal pH. The Conception Kit is available by prescription only in the United States."

1) The contest is intended for couples trying to conceive a child. Write a 100-to-300 word essay and post it as a comment on this article. The essay should answer this question: "What will having a child mean to you?" Use the comment form located at the bottom of this article. Be sure to type your valid e-mail address in the address field, one that will remain valid through July 2008.
The idea is, if you don’t win, you still have a keepsake for your baby book for when you do conceive. If you have trouble limiting yourself to 300 words, then write what’s in your heart, keep the long version for your baby book, and condense it to a short version for your contest entry.
2) Three entrants will be selected to receive a Conceivex Conception Kit. One winning essay will be chosen by me (AJ, the owner of Thingamababy.com), one winning essay will be chosen by Conceivex, and one winning essay will be chosen by Dawn D., a reader of Thingamababy.com who was selected by AJ for this honor.
The criteria used for judging the essays is entirely subjective and will differ for each of the judges based on reasons known only to those judges.
3) Contest entries will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. Monday, June 30, 2008, Pacific Time.
4) The contest is open only to residents of the United States and is contingent upon winners obtaining a prescription for the kit from their personal doctor or Conceivex’s doctor (through an online questionnaire).
So, what will having a child mean to you?
Before responding, I encourage you to re-read rule #1 when composing your essay. Is what you’ve written something you would write in your baby book for your child to read and remember years from now?
