I am not pg, but we are in our 2nd month of ttc…The first month, I just used digtial opks and I was convinced we nailed it the first try. BFN, then AF. So this month, I employed a few other tools, and was wondering if anyone else had any “tricks” they used the month they got BFP…
Here’s my list of what I am doing:
1.) CBE Fertility Monitor (back up with CBE digital opk)
2.) Pre Seed (Note: I recently read about using Pre Seed “backward.” Where you insert the preseed after you BD, and I read several blogs where this may have helped with their bfp..Haven’t tried myself though)
3.) Pillow under butt for 20 mins after BD with legs in air. I cannot believe I do this.
4.) BD’d A LOT! The monitor gave me like 8 high days plus 2 peak days, and normall I’m all about DTD with Darling Husband but LAWD we’re worn out when it’s BDing every day! It really does make it feel like work!
Last month was no gimmicks or tricks;)
How about ya’ll? What did you do differently, good or bad, the month you got your BFP? And if you are still ttc, what “tricks” are you using?

I’m looking forward to reading the responses so I can try all of the tricks. 🙂 Thanks.

The only thing we did differently was we continued to BD even after my temps and CBEFM showed my peak/O-day. Previously we usually took a break after O-day. Everything else was the same: temping, charting, CBEFM, BD every other day during high and peak, pillow under pelvis for 20 minutes afterward (no legs in the air though), prenantal vitamins.

I used instead cups after BD to keep the good stuff in. Got a BFP!

I was doing the 17-day diet the month I got pregnant. And I swear all of the green tea (3 glasses a day) and high protein diet made all of the difference. Just recently I read that Green Tea helps your body produce more CM and that was the first month I truly had EWCM. So, ladies, I’d add some green tea to your routine! Good luck!!

I got on top(my fave position to end in), I didn’t lay down to let them “flow” and I showered/used the bathroom right after. We had been trying a year when I got pregnant, so really, I had just given up and said hell, eff that stuff, just enjoy it the way I used to.

We were only TTC for a month. I googled what days I was likely to be ovulating based on the start date of my period. The days I was likely to get pregnant, I had a pillow under my butt during and after sex, and I was crazy enough to stick my legs in the air right after for several minuets.

@MsMamaBear:I’m getting to that point now. We’re still ttc, but not as hard.

The week I was scheduled to O we bd’d daily (I just went by my cycle dates.. didn’t use opks or anything like that)… then skipped the day right before my projected O (b/c of other factors) and then bd’d the following 2 days. Pretty much kept our normal bd “schedule” lol
I didn’t get up directly after.
I also always orgasm, which helps the uterus contract and “suck up” the sperm. Even if you orgasm for oral stimulation before actually bd’ing your uterus continues to contract for like 1/2 an hr or something like that.

Um…dumb question, I’m sure…but what does “BD” stand for? It obviously means sex, but I’m curious what the actual words are?

@mightywombat: Baby Dance/Dancing (I told Darling Husband that, and he’s decided he prefers Baby Deposit)

We quit trying. We initially got pregnant right away, miscarried and then had six more months of OPKs and peeing on sticks and then decided to take a month off and regroup. That was the month we got pregnant.
When you are trying there is nothing worse than when someone says “Relax, it will happen! Just relax” but it really did the trick for us.
