    Lightbulb Tips For Conceiving

    My husband and I tried for 10 months to conceive
    our son and when we finally did it was because of
    and idea that i had to use a diagphram to hold in
    everything (if you know what i mean) because every
    month I would stay on my back for atleast an hour and
    still when I got up everything would just come back
    out.

    So anyways thats my tip for someone who is having
    trouble keeping it all in.

    Does anyone else out there have any stories or ideas? :p

    What I have been doing this month is after BD I stay in bed lying on my back and go to sleep. I don't go to the toilet until the next morning. I'm hoping this might have helped. I'm only on day 18 but I will let you know if it worked or not. Plus we tried to BD every night this month. DH is a little worn out.
    Keep the ideas coming please.

    OMG, every night?! I don't doubt your poor DH is worn out!

    But with that kind of track record, I can't see how you could have missed out. Another week or so and I'm looking forward to a BFP!!

    oh... sorry, I seem to have veered off the original intent of this thread.. just couldn't contain my excitement.

    Hope it works out for you too.
    I also am this time staying in bed as long
    as I can but with 2 other kids here who don't like
    to go to sleep sometimes that is not possible.

    Thank you Cosmic. I love reading your posts but really loved reading that one. Plus DH had an injured leg to deal with so hopefully we didn't put him through that pain for nothing.
    I will let you know if it worked or not.
    Sticky baby dust to us all.

    We are trying to do every 2 days since the start of the month, and we have been every day for the past 3 days! Hopefully this month is lucky!

    If you do your keggles (sp?) after *it* Ive noticed that alot more seems to stay it..... I read somewhere that *The big O* makes the womans body *suck* the stuff in, so I figured doing the contraction things might help too...seems too!!!!

    Hi Kathleen,

    I hope it is your lucky month too! Let's face it, the only way to really give yourself the best chance is to keep up the BD, right? I actually read somewhere not to do those exercise after BD in case they push the spermies OUT!! Just thought I'd mention it.. just in case..?

    Apart from that, keep up the good work and keep us posted!

    I try to stay on my back with my legs closed tightly together for over 2 hours, but when I get up everything just leaks out (sorry tmi). Might try that idea and hopefully that will work.

    I lie on my back holding my legs in the air (looks ridiculous..yes!) for as long as possible immediately afterwards dtd. Gives the sperm a helping hand!! I also elevate my pelvis just with a pillow under the bum for about an hr or so too. Yes, e'thing leaks out when you do eventually get up but its only the semen which carries the sperm, not the sperm itself. Any sperm that had a chance would already have started it's journey inside you (tmi?? Sorry)
