    I've started to lay stillish and pop a pillow under my hips or just try to bridge for a bit (around 15 mins), and then if its a night time BD I'm sooooo sleepy having not moved I fall asleep (generally manage to pop on a pair of pants before nodding off), so don't get up until the morning.

    If its not night BDing, I tend to elevate a little whilst talking to hubby as he wanders around afterwards and then get up and do stuff, but try to hold off the toilet for at least 20 or so mins - apparently anything strong swimming will be well on its way by then, so anything coming out would be the reserves as it were and probably not as important as the forerunners. Given your situation though (as per your sig), giving them a bit of a head start can't really hurt can it?

    I read a funny thing about sperm finding the egg once - someone summed it up as 'think about dropping 1 million men, blindfolded, in the middle of the Simpson Desert, spinning them around 5 times and telling them to run to Perth - that's what its like for the sperm to find the egg...' which makes me giggle. My hubby refers to sperm as "total un-co's" and imagines them trying to bang up against the kidneys or something, so again, anything we can do to help them out is probably a good thing imho (I should add, my hubby does know about the human body, I think he's just using the kidneys for comic effect lol)

    But this is only really my first proper cycle (last month was a bit cavalier) and I'm not BFP yet, so perhaps I'm not the person to listen to lol.

    Wish my hubby was nice and on board like yours - mine laughs at me for doing the legs thing lol

I went away with work early morning CD14 and according to my temps and FF that was the day I O'd.

    Re legs in the air/elevation I tried that a few months at times but not last month. Just made a point of lying in bed for 30mins afterwards or if it was at nighttime not going to to loo straight afterwards and just trying to go to sleep as I felt like it all fell out (sorry TMI)!!
    Oh good so it is not only me who does this.....

    Laurs we live 40 mins from our clinic and my DH works in another town about an hour or so from the clinic so he can't get there on a week day, they are shut week ends and he can only go at times when their scientist is there as she looks at the semen staight away. It takes 2 months to get some of the results back as well so the clinic are pushing that we do it this week and not in a fortnight on his next day off. I think we might just BD tonight as it says 2 to 7 days so technically today is 2 days before hand :/

    Boxcat my FS likened it to a dart board i.e you throw x amounts of darts and only x amount will actually hit the bulls eye.... I like your desert theory and your DH's one a lot better I have DH on menevit so I am really hoping to see an improvement in his sperm levels when they test him this week. He is very keen for a baby too as we have being trying for so long now so he is great and pretty proactive most of the time. It can be hard at times to motivate for BDing as we both work full time and have a fair bit of travel time to and from work so we are very knackered on week days.

    Ive been trying it the past couple of times.

    I've just been raising my pelvis off the ground as I'm too embarrassed that my DH will ask why I'm doing it and call me silly. Tee hee hee. I guess it worked for me last month - it was just the glue that let me down!

    Loving the conversation ladies giving me a good giggle.
    I've lost track of what month were on I think 13 of Ttc, it sucks most months but hey bding can be lots of fun.
    I don't raise my hips or legs tbh I'm normally the one that falls straight to sleep, dh says I'm the man in our relationship ha ha. Trust me bding is much harder when you have kids. My dd is 11 and not so needy anymore but still I wait till she's asleep before anything happens.
    I think we're out this month been way to tired to do anything as I've been working lots of overtime which dh not happy about. Back to normal hours next week than god.
    Hope everyone is well.

    Went to see my naturopath yesterday.

I'm to take 3 weeks off both gluten and dairy, and she's also asked me to do a 10-day detox (no gluten, dairy, alcohol, sugar or caffeine - arrghhh!!!) before I see her next. Not quite sure how I'll cope without my coffee fix every morning, but I guess at least it's a good excuse for not drinking during the TWW

    She's got me taking more vitamin B and also potassium and a multi-mineral complex.

    On the upside, she thinks my temps look good, that I'm creating enough progesterone and that my LP is long enough. She said as long as it's 12 days or more then that's fine.

    Now just got to get DH to do that bloody SA!! Wish me luck, ladies!
    Hey star! Good new from you naturo I hope this works for you, I'm sure I read that gluten free is good for fertility somewhere maybe I'll try it too!

    I'm heading into O territory this week also Thursday/Friday I think, haven't been temping much just going to go the OPK route this round.. Feel like I've lost my TTC mojo

    I have no idea where I'm at now, again. Finished taking femara on Friday last week. Got another blood test tomorrow morning, so I'll see what my levels say.

    I'm actually not in the mood this month and kind of keen to take the month off. Feel bad towards my FS though (and wallet!) for not giving it a go. Can you tell I'm in a weird state of mind?

    To all of you in the tww. And hope all of you in the O phase have some fun BD-ing!
