The ones that are already up on their way aren’t going to come out.  🙂  Some women say to lie there, but my OB said that doesn’t help at all.  The good ones are already on their way up.

We get up and I clean up immediately.  Not trying to get a UTI or mess the sheets…

I’ve always laid there with my hips propped up for at least 15 minutes. Not sure if it makes a difference but I’m now on my 3rd pregnancy.

It’s not necessary. People have been getting pregnant for hundreds of years. If there was a tried and true method, it’d be well known. You can do it if it makes you feel better, but realistically it’s not going to help or hurt you at all.

Doesn’t make a difference. This is anecdotal but we took two cycles to conceive, the cycle I laid around – no baby, the cycle I was like ‘whatever’ and just got up to clean up – baby

Makes no difference. The initial ejeculatation gets them where they need to go. Just like jumping up and down doesn’t make them fall out, gravity won’t help them get farther upstream.

jcor:  I’ve gotten pregnant 3 times. Each time I didn’t lay there at all. I got up, went to the bathroom, and went about my day (pregnancy 1 and 2 were conceived in the afternoon, pregnancy 3 was either in the afternoon or right before bed). The sperm traveled just fine!
