OK ladies… I’m nearing the O day (projected for Sunday). We’ve already BDd the last two days and plan to every day leading up to and the day after O day. Anyone got any tips or tricks to use to increase the chances, without standing on my head? Any old wives tales you’ve heard about increasing chances or anything about pregnancy/babies and time you concieve?
FX for all TTC bees, hope to see lots of BFPs this month!

They really might be old wives tales. For me, we BD on O-1, O, O+1, O+2. I believe it was O-1 and O day that I put my legs in the air (DH put them on his shoulders so I wouldn’t get tired holding them up) for 10 minutes. It may not have even helped, sometimes I did it, sometimes I didn’t.

I’m curious to see these tips as well! My Dr. told me to only bd every other day within a certain window. Looks like others have different instructions. Now I am confused…

Good luck! If you aren’t successful this month, maybe think about switching to every other day? I seem to remember reading that doing it daily can actually be counterproductive – it can result in lower sperm counts. Your chances are better when you do it with a little less frequency but greater potency.

I took Mucinex on the two days we did it the cycle we conceived!

I think I’m going to add mucinex to my shopping list! What kind of mucinex? Any specific kind?
