Confused about whether I can identify as Jewish or not

I am confused about my religious identity. My father and his whole family were raised Jewish. My mother was brought up nonsecular, but her mother is an Orthodox Jew and comes from a long line of Jewish family as well. When my parents married, they converted to Methodist, though they, nor I, practice. The way I see it, by blood I’m nearly 100% Jewish, but my parent’s conversion complicates things so I’ve never officially identified as Jewish. My husband was raised Jewish and we plan on raising our future kids Jewish as well. We follow practices and rituals and I’d like to become more involved in the community before we try to have kids, but I don’t know if I need to convert or not in order to officially “count.” What do you all think?
