How to get pregnant.. adult content

Ok so i was reading in a fertility book earlier today and i read that after sex, you should stick both legs in the air to give the sperm a better chance of swimming to where they need to be. anyone ever heard this before?

  • I could see that a Diva Cup would help keep the sperm in. I would lay with my hips on a pillow for 30 minutes to keep sperm swimming in the right direction. We also used an OPK to help with our timing. It worked in 3 cycles with DD, but we ended up with 11 cycles of infertility treatments with TTC #2. #3 was a bonus that came with #2 (twins)!

  • I always layed down for about 30 minutes after we would do the baby dance when trying to get pregnant. I loved that time afterwards. I'd be by myself in bed--day dreaming about the baby I wanted. Wondering to myself--Did I just get pregnant?!? Never did the leg thing but I suppose it's worth a shot! :D
