  • ahahahahahahahaha. I'm sure SOMEBODY has. If you need a turkey baster to get preggers, i don't think you need a baby.

  • i don't even know if you really could..it would probably take some heavy researching...i know sperm dies soon so i don't know if it would be possible to even do that yourself

  • I only heard of a "friend of a friend" type of story.... A friend of mine's landlord told me her sister and her partner (they were lesbians) used the turkey baster method and had a baby. Whether it's true or not, who knows. I suppose it's possible, not all that different from a penis shooting the sperm up there, right?

  • Isn't that kind of what they try in fertility clinics? Not sure.

    Sperm can live for up to 7 days.

  • If you're not getting pregnant the traditional way with your hubby, using a turkey baster to put your hubby's stuff in there isn't going to get you pregnant either. Getting it in there the natural way is easier and safer than having him jizz in a cup and using a turkey baster to put it up your vagina. Yikes.
