I know, different for everyone, not trying to pick up tips here! Just interested if people did anything different that they think resulted in their BFP and so on :)

DTD less. H and I only saw each other every other weekend, so were DTD a lot when we did see each other. The weekend I conceived, we DTD once.

Used a cbfm!

Saw my husband and DTD (he'd been in afghan for 7 months haha).

Was on holiday. Not sure if being more relaxed helped or not.

Wasn't really thinking about is as H was going out of area that month so thought while it would be good to get a BFP it would also work out if it didn't happen and we tried again when he was back!

Drank loads more water. I never drink enough and I wasn't seeing much ewcm. Drinking more water seemed to make a difference

Called the hospital and got a referral as soon as I tested positive so I could get blod thinning injections. Thinking is that absence of an enzyme caused my 3 mc.

We were trying for 12 months and DTD every other day during the fertile window every month. The month we got the BFP my H was due to go for a sperm analysis so we hadn't DTD for a few days. I randomly did an OPK as I felt like I was ov-ing (my cycles were irregular) and sure enough it was positive. The appointment was abandoned and we DTD twice in the window and caught. So we DTD less and it wasn't planned DTD either!

Smoked, got rat arsed and threw up in Bridgnorth. H was sober.
*Just to point out I hadn't smoked since 2009, and not really drunk at all since my mc early 2012*.

OB - HA HA! Brilliant!
I actually quit smoking 2 months before my BFP which 100% helped. I had also cut back on the vino. We also DTD less and thought about it alot less.
Oh and it was a really crap sh*g that we conceived on. Honestly, we joke about it all the time.

Its funny isn't it - how you can do all these timings etc and pinpoint it etc, yet still be unsuccessful. The next month, do exactly the same, and you are successful! There is just no way to make it 'your' month, nature has to decide.
OB!! that's brilliant! Ha ha!
Also LP I had to laugh at the crap shag! Ha! The romance of baby making!!

The only thing I did differently from my other cycles on clomid (and most of my other cycles) was I didn't temp or use OPK's. We just DTD every-other-day during the fertile week and I was so much more relaxed. The 2WW was another story mind! x

I'm actually ashamed of myself, but clearly we had it all the wrong way around for those 16 months! H drinks most nights so for him to be stone cold sober was a rarity, that combined with me being off my head obviously did the trick! I've told him, next time we TTC he is going teetotal!!

We'd be trying for 18 months - I mentally decided that we would give it till January - it was October and then we'd get tested. That decision obviously chilled me out - and the fact I lay on the floor and put my bum up in the air to help gravity (don't ask) seemed to work after DTD. The bum in the air worked last time too but that ended in a MMC. I'm a firm beliver of gravity being, ahem helped.... and yes my H used to crack up too

Hehe! Sue how far in the air? ;-) I kind of lift it up slightly, but I think I'd topple to the side if I lifted it too much!
04/09/2013 at 14:36
You really want details? I lie on the floor and put my feet on my bed and lift my hips up as far as I can get them up!!!
In fairness, this I do when my H is in the shower or not watching me :)

Haha! Wow! That is dedication! Do you stay there for long? Now I'm just being nosey!
