@hilsy85: That’s pretty much what my doctor told me to do–I did a mile and a half a day, at a slower pace than normal, she told me to avoid anything with weights, or any ab work, so I did.

As for BD, there are pretty much a million ways you can do it.  Some people get pregnant after peeing, showering, and jumping up and down 100 times immedately after sex.  For me personally, I stayed on my back with my legs in the air for an hour afterwards. We’d usually just watch a tv show, and when it was over, I’d pee, shower, and get all cleaned up.  

All of this can be of course, coincidence, but it made me feel like it gave me a fighting chance, so I did!

Well for me:

Exercise: did the same thing I usually do – no changes during TWW.

BD routine: DH would “hang out” a little longer than normal (I think he thought he was plugging the way out) and after that I’d stay in bed a few minutes (no more than 5) before I got up to pee.

We really only made super minor adjustments, and got our BFP after 2 official months of trying.

Good luck!

I decreased my exercise during the TWW– I know that super high body temps aren’t great when you are pregnant. I wasn’t sure about how it works during the TWW, so i just backed off.

And I stayed in bed for about 15 – 30 minutes afterwards, depending on what I was doing. I know there are tons of people who get pregnant without laying in bed afterwards, so who knows if it helped!

I also liked to push myself during my runs before TTC, but I took it easy during the TWW.  It sounds like you’re doing the right thing — keep running, just try to keep it to a pace where you’re not totally out of breath. Also, try not to overheat while you’re running.  Hopefully your gym is well ventilated.

Also, I would always stay in bed (lying down or with hips slightly elevated on a pillow) for at least 30 minutes after BD-ing.  I’m not sure if any of that helped, but we got our BFP on month #3.

@hilsy85:

Oooh yay, you are TTC!!! I stayed in bed for about 5-10 mins after we BD then went to the bathroom and peed as usual. Worked like a charm.

@hilsy85:Yay! Welcome to the club πŸ™‚ So exciting!

During the TWW I don’t really cut back on the exercise but I take it easier. During non-TWW times I run almost every day, anywhere from 3-5 miles. During the TWW I keep the running closer to 2 miles and then do extra walking. I don’t do intense abs and I focus more on arms or leg things like squats or lunges. Everything that I’ve read has said that it’s okay to keep up with your exercise as long as you aren’t introducing something new to your routine but I always want to play it safe!

ETA:Ohhh and I lay in bed after BD. I usually put a pillow under to kind of prop myself up a little and we’ll usually watch a half hour show on TV.

@Goldilocks1107: I think it actually makes sense for him to stick around a bit longer, more kisses for one thing!

Also, sometimes all his boys may not have come out when he “came” inside you, and that extra few minutes allows a chance for the boys to finish the trip. 

Even when we weren’t trying, and early on during the pregnancy (before the added pressure of him on top for an extended time was too much), i’ve always prefered that extra few minutes of cuddle/makeout time before snuggling into his side.

@hilsy85:  Welcome!!  Didn’t realize you were starting so soon! Yay! 

I haven’t gotten pregnant yet, but I thought I’d just add my two cents.  During the TWW, I still exercise but maybe not as much or as hard.  Duriong the rest of the month, I keep my normal routine.  After BD, I just go right to sleep, so that takes care of laying down for a while.  No hip lifts or anything like that.

I usually just got right to sleep afterwards…and then wake up a few hours later and “clean up.”  Ha…probably not the most sanitary thing to do, but I haven’t ended up with a UTI yet (knock on wood.)

I’m also in the camp of lying in bed or falling asleep afterwards. Anywhere from 5-20 minutes.

YAY! Sending baby dust your way!

My friend who is TTC was told by her Dr. that you can do the same exercise in the 2WW as you normally do…

And apparently it’s just a myth that all his swimmers will come out when you stand up/pee. Just think of it this way, you wouldn’t use that as a form of birth control, would you? But most people I know hung around in bed an extra 5 minutes for good measure…
