This is the last month.


This is it.
This is the last month (I think) of us trying to get pregnant, BEFORE medical intervention.
This is the last month.
The last month free of invasive procedures.
This is our last chance to do it the old fashioned way.
Just two people who love each other.
Just two people making a new life.
Just the two of us.
This is the last month.

That being said, I am willing to try anything this month to get myself knocked up! I want to hear any and every wacky suggestion you guys have or have heard. Gravity boots. OK, where can I buy them? Stand on my head? Sure! I have a good chiropractor! So fess up! Don't keep the secrets. I will say I am NOT willing to stick ANY food items up my hoo hoo. So don't even try the egg whites thing. Thats just icky.

I've got my brand new CBE ovulation thingy....not the super cool, super expensive kind. Just the one that smiles at me when I have an LH surge. I like those better than the stupid little mini strips. Boooo to those! BOOOO I say!!

I've been taking my vitamins, and so has DH.
I'm ready to go.

But we have to wait until after Wednesday. DH has his next SA. It was supposed to be today. That didn't happen. Long(semi-funny) story.
But come(heh)Wednesday...Bow Chika Wow Wow! Its baby making time!! So before then, I fully expect some tips and such from all of you fellow TTC'ers

C'mon. Don't be shy. Lets hear 'em!

I have been ttc for 14 months, so I feel your pain. I don't have any tried and true suggestions for you. But what I can tell (from experience) is...Do NOT stand on your head or do handstands up against the wall. Reasons: 1. You can't stay up long enough to really do anything. I mean 15 minutes on your head or hands REALLY hurts. 2. When you decide you just can't do it anymore, and you come down, the juice comes out of you at an ALARMING speed. I guess the force of coming down, and the gravity thing combined, is no bueno for keeping his stuff up there.
However, at conceptioncurve.com, you can buy a conception cure fertility pillow. It looks awesome. DH says it's a waste, but I secretly want it so bad! You could try that....

OMG! I've seen the pillow! I want it to, but its like 80-90 bucks! And my DH thinks its a waste too. I even tried to come up with uses for it AFTER we conceived. I don't think he bought them though. I guess I'll have to save up my allowance! haha!

As I was reading, the first thing that popped into my mind that someone has just recently told me that I needed to do was the egg whites thing. Actually, my grandma was the first one to tell me that!! Yuck!!! There is no way that I would EVER do that myself. I agree with you that it's just nasty!

The other thing is putting a pillow underneath you during sex, and then boosting yourself up a little more, but not too much, for about 30 minutes. It's obviously never worked for me yet, but hey, it could work for you! Good luck with this month!

Hi, there. I'm going to come right out and say I am NOT at TTC'er, but I am pregnant with number two if that gives me some credibility.

So, I know you are SUPPOSED to "do it" in the missionary position, but that is absolutely NOT how we got prego the second time around. It was definately, using, and *ahem* rear entry position. So don't be afraid to shake it up.

Good luck.

I'm not TTC either so I'm not sure anything I could say would help. But I'm willing to lend a hand. The standing on your head thing sounds pretty painful to me. But laying in a chair with your legs in the air resting on the back of it sounds doable..

Should I even ask about egg whites? Or do I wanna know?

Have you tried the Jonas Conception Method? Nutty, but I do know people it's worked for!

Sarah said...

ok, so the hand stands are out. Probably a good thing, I have NO coordination!

I already prop myself up. SO thats done.

I <3 Doggy style so I'll give that a go too!

The chair thing sounds slightly more comfortable than gravity boots.

I'm not sure about the Jonas thing...I'll have to check it out

Good luck! I will be sending you lots of fertile vibes. :-) (I live in CT, too, by the way!)

you know whats funny, (and I do the same thing), us TTCers tend to ask the advice of other TTCers...

Missus, if I knew the secret I'd bottle it.

Until then, shag, shag like your lives depend on it, and don't forget to laugh.

Best of luck.

Sarah said...

Well love, if you DO figure out the secret recipe. Please do share it. I'm sure we can barter something. I'd just need one small bottle. =)

If I knew I'd tell you... the kind of advice I get is to 'relax', 'don't think about it'. *smacks forehead with palm of hand*

ouch
