Trying to conceive

if I know it's around ovulation time, I like to try and lay down for about it 20-30 minutes after DTD.

As long as i could bear, usually about 10 minutes!

Normally about 30 mins for me too, I'm not normally in a hurry to go anywhere.

5mins unless its bedtime. I used to not bother until H said he'd read up about it and insisted I did.

All night if it's bed time. Half an hour any other time.

I got my BFP lying all night without getting up!!!
I laid down for about 30 mins with a pillow under my bum.

I normally last 5 mins if that. The gloopyness grosses me out after that and I have to go get clean!

Pre ttc days probably about 5 mins. Ttc days at least 30 mins!

Around ovulation we tended to DTD last thing at night and I would go to sleep afterwards, so about eight hours?!

I'm terrible for lying still afterwards maybe 10 mins max, I suffer from Cystitus so have always rushed for a wee straight afterwards pre TTC so it feels not normal to lie there. I fell asleep once and managed 90 mins!

To those of you saying you fall asleep. Do you not wake up in a squishy puddle :/ ?

i always thought the lying down thing was not proven to help!? but will try anything - even laying in the wet patch for as long as necessary!!
14/06/2013 at 12:03
Exactly why i couldnt do it all night PS. Yuck!!!

I have to leap up for a wee pretty much straight away! If we're still trying in a few months I'll give it a go - will need to put a towel down though I'm not getting back into bed to lie in a wet patch!

I put on a pair of knickers and pjs and go to sleep. My knickers have usually caught it all in the morning, and then I just jump straight into the shower. It's only a couple of times a month where I don't get rid before going to sleep...I can cope with that

I'm the same as you Figaro lol

About 5 mintues before I need a wee and a clean up! Didn't stop us conceiving :-)
16/06/2013 at 20:10
About 10-15mins. I don't think it's supposed to have any effect, but i wanted to give anything a go that might help.
16/06/2013 at 20:16
I didn't know you were supposed to lie down, I thought that was an old wives tale! I always rush off to the loo cos I'm prone to cystitis and I hate the gloopiness.
