TTC Facts: things to avoid!

Some things to avoid if you are actiely Trying to Conceive:

1) Saliva: it can kill your sperm. It is best, not to engage in oral sex before you have intercourse.

2) Some commercial lubricants: many of them will decrease your chances of conceiving. If you must use lubrication, real eggwhites are ideal. Also, a new product, Pre~Seed Intimate Moisturizer, has been receiving rave reviews from women, so it may be worth a try.

3) Woman-on-top position: it should be avoided at time of ejaculation.

4) Getting up immediately after intercourse: if possible, give the sperm some time to travel by lying down afterwards. Some women like to lay on their back with the knees pulled up to the chest.

August/September 2012: 2ww update!

As most know (or if you don't) we have ALOT going on. *also why my posts have been non-existent* ANYWAYS.....

     Long Story short I was supposed to get my period on September 3 through approx. September 6th (based on my past cycles and the app on my phone) Well I didn't get it until September 12th. Of course we were excited about me being so late as I never have been THAT late and not been pregnant. We tested (hpt) on Sep. 9th and it was BFN. Joe still had his hopes up until I finally started.

So needless to say were STILL TTC. Oh yeah.....& about 3 other people have announced their pregnancy and I just wanna scream.

more posts to come as its 1:15am and this post is emotional & scattered, but I figured I'd do a short updated since I keep being asked.

Trying to stay calm and keep a fake 'happiness' for my pregnant friends
