How long on my back and elevated after DTD, going nuts here!
 
Ok ttc this week ovulating around yesterday and today. Had relations :blush: last night and now I am thinking I should have layed down for longer :banghead: after ......... you know. I tilted my pelvis and elevated myself on some pillows but only really stayed that way for hmmmm 10 min or so before I got up to finish cleaning the kitchen which was a mess.

DH has a not so great sperm count. So it is super hard to concieve naturally. Heck we did IVF to get pregnant with our triplets. I just feel deep down that it can and just might happen. I cant stop thinking about baby making and birthing etc. I am consumed of late which makes me wonder if the almighty is trying to give me a nudge saying have a little faith you know. Ok totally rambling but uhhhhhh I am consumed here. I want so badly to poas and see a positive for once in my life. I dont want to have to go to the doc to have them help me get pg again. Ok I am done. Sorry for the rambling just needed to say it you know.

I think I've read 10-20 before, but 10 was prob. long enough. You could have dh drink some caffeine a half hour or so before dtd, too, that is supposed to help motility, or use some of that lubricant called pre seed. I haven't used it, but have read that it helps, too. :hugs:

After my IUI a week ago, I had to lay on the table for 30min with my hips elevated.

Your MOM!?

Ok, I'd be totally grossed out discussing TTC with my MOM!!!!!!:blush: :giggle:

Sorry for the minor TJ, mama, I'll just send along :hugs: since I have no clue...I'm "blessed" in that I can get pregnant if I wash my skivvies with DH's, so I've got no idea what you're going through, but kudos!!!:thumbsup:

Have you heard about taking Robitussin before DTD? Supposedly it can help your cervical mucous help the sperm get to where it's supposed to be going. There's a little info on it here: http://www.thebabycorner.com/boards/...d.php?t=331662
I just thought it was interesting!

I have no answer to your ? but I just wanted to say that I know exactly how you feel. I cry everytime I think about it for too long.
