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 !
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

Going, going . . . .
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.
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..
Next up: trying Pre-Seed for the first time... yay!
