How long on my back and elevated after DTD, going nuts here!

Ok ttc this week ovulating around yesterday and today. Had relations last night and now I am thinking I should have layed down for longer 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.

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!!!!!!

Sorry for the minor TJ, mama, I'll just send along 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!!!

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.
