I am wondering if any of you are noticing this too. After we BD and I put my butt on a pillow I feel like some of the semen (or as DH calls it baby gravy..ewww) is coming out of me. I know that men don’t actually ejaculate that much but I feel like tons of it comes out that night. Does that mean I have a shallow vagina or tilted or it doesn’t hold well? And if it all leaks out how do we make a baby??

Happens to me too! DH and I joke about how they don’t show that side of BD’ing on tv and in movies. They make it seem so….clean? It’s always a production to get to the bathroom without spilling all over the place IRL

pretty sure it comes out of everyone… your body doesn’t exactly absorb it.

@AbBeeRoad: Lol eww baby gravy….
I think it is normal for it to come out (and it is a mad dash to the bathroom for me), and doesn’t truly signal a problem. Rather than putting a pillow under your butt (although I would still recommend this) can you hold your legs up in the air for a few minutes? Or, for me, I would wrap my legs around DH’s waist. If you are really, REALLY try you could also get DH to hold your legs up for you, but we couldn’t do that because it took away from the romance we just shared, lol.
You can still make a baby, don’t worry 🙂

Even though you think it’s all running out, there are still millions of spermies trying to find your egg left up inside you 🙂 Don’t worry!

there have been some creative maneuvers to get to a ‘safe zone’

@Swizzle: I know! I told him that baby gravy totally grosses me out! Which of course makes him use it more!
@megz06: I’m not going to lie… we aren’t the most romantic people… especially during the FW… there is usually some giggles after about something ridiculous… We’re a lot more romantic and intimate when its a little more spontaneous

Happens to me too, feels like a lot. The “important” stuff will stay inside you. A lot of ladies put their legs in the air to help keep it in. Really the stuff that falls out is just liquid, the “goods” will do their thang.

@AbBeeRoad: I posted a couple of days about positions and TTC! Decided that night to do it how we like it… Well I reckon all the baby gravy came out that night!!! Tried a different position last night and some (but not to the same degree) came out! You’re Definitly not alone!!!

@AbBeeRoad: Happens to everyone! I usually have FI grab a piece of toilet paper or a tissue so I can hold it up against my V and waddle to the toilet where I proceed to pee and try to push it all out. Gross!
Also, FI calls it baby gravy too. Makes me want to vomit!

LOL I am still laughing… Hard @ baby gravy. Anyway, in the spirit of sharing … waiting and having yoy orgasm after he ejaculates will help push the “baby gravy” (sorry couldn’t help it) further away. Contractions caused by your orgasm actually help. 🙂 Thank you Discovery Health.. Hahaah!!!

Haha happens to me too. I usually just shout for the nearest towel and then am very clear that “that pillow” will not be “my pillow” that night. Some comes out even when I put my legs up afterwards. Gross, but I think it’s very normal and won’t impact your ability to get pregnant.

we have a special ‘butt pillow’ for that purpose LOL. it leaks out of everyone, no worries. it’s just annoying when you are stuck lying there for 20 minutes and can feel it leaking into your buttcrack…
