Do You..

Sooo ladies since we are all TTC , i think we should try to tell each other the mechanisms we use while ttc ( from legs in the air right after bd to home remedys etc) i thought it would be fun to compare notes .. Hey you never know ! Smile

Since I'm not fond of sex we sometimes use, what I'll term as the "Syringe Method". DH goes into his room, collects a specimem, and injects the sperm (and some Pre-Seed to top it off) into me via the Safety 1st Easy Fill Medicine Syringe.

It shouldn't be this complicated to have a baby :rolleyes:

Gone past all of these special ways to get a baby now to be honest...we have sex..I lay there for as long as and we go on with our day...oh...I do use preseed. Smile
I chart and such too and take opks and use a fertility monitor..but when it comes to doing it...as long as it works thats cool,,LOL

Yes preseed is freaking amazing!! For me I do the elevated hips thing lol ! Its hasnt worked so far obviously lol !! But maybe since the preseed helps to make them travel , it may work this time around and now DH and i are doing it every 2 days so that we hive his sperm some time to regenerate instead of doing it every day ..

i agree with Liz, we just DTD and that's it at this point. I used to lay there with legs in the air and try other things and we just gave up on all of that.

Haha, I used to do the legs in the air, hips elevated thing too... not so much anymore... I just try to lay there for around 5 minutes afterwards..most of the time. lol.
I've used egg whites for lube (totally grossed/weirded out DH), taken all kinds of different herbs, teas, supplements that people or doctors have suggested... went dairy & gluten free for about 6 months combined with low-carbing it... what else... hmm.. did a different special diet my RE suggested... have done everything from "just relax & go on vacation" to full on hardcore TTC: charting your temps/using OPKs /checking CM /religiously taking prenatals /etc.. ha!
Fun fun fun.. Wink
Next up: trying Pre-Seed for the first time... yay! Biggrin

In 6 years we have tried it all.....honestly though I get pregnant every time I lay with a pillow under my hips and my feet and legs against the walls, not that it has worked out any of those times....but hey progress is progress Smile

I try to lie in bed for about half an hour (hard to do these days, day or night, since Evie likes to come to our bed in the middle of the night). Once in a while I do the raise my hips thing, but it's tiresome, even with a pillow underneath.

I tried Preseed for one cycle, but (TMI) I freakin made myself bleed poking around down there just to get that preseed in!! I mean, I know I'm lame but I don't wanna hurt myself just to get a kid!!

Usually I temp and use OPKs but this cycle was completely shot due to Evie's come to our bed at night and this coughing is making me drink lots of water. Maybe next cycle.

Oh my gosh.... now I'm a little worried, haha - my Preseed came & I noticed the applicator is frickin long........but I guess no longer than a tampon once the applicator's shoved it up there?? o gosh.. hahaha

you don't have to shove the applicator all the way up there - LOL
just put some in and your husband should entering should do the job naturally of getting it up there...

We use preseed when we're BD - it is what helps us get a BFP, otherwise we don't end up with one. I've done IUI's as well - get BFPs that way too. Just have to get the little bean to stick now - LOL!
Done the legs up/ hips up, etc thing - after 5 yrs it's really not something one wants to do...to be honest, I just want to go to sleep after DTD as my body has this switch that flips that I get SUPER tired ... I guess I must be a guy that way - hahaha!!
