hey
just leave your hips in the air for a little bit. just so that all the sperm have a good shot of staying up there. let gravity take its course and good luck.

Well this is an old wives tale that could or could not be beneficial. The idea behind it is to let the little guys have a better chance at getting to the egg. Letting gravity go its job in essance. There are a lot more factors that have to come into play in order to get pregnant than just putting a pillow under your butt. The idea is to just lay still for about 20 minutes afterwards so that they have a chance to swim where they need to go. If you have a pillow, it might give them a little bit of an advantage, but slight.

Do you know when you are ovulating? Because this is key.

My mum told me to do a head-stand when i was trying to get pregnant with my first. I went off the pill and got pregnant the second month of trying so very quickly and im not one for getting pregnant easily. Also i was ovulating at that time. 14-16 days after the first day of my last period. Im fit but headstand was kinda out so i just raised my hips and put my legs up against the wall. Trying again too, I should be ovulating tomo but have only just stopped pill. All the best.

Just so you know, my doctor told me women can be more fertile than usual just after they stop the pill. It seemed to be true for me.

Good luck TTC.

I went off the Pill in Sept of 07 and found out on Feb 14 I was Pregnant. I used the pillow under my butt each time my DH and I had sex. It apparently worked since I was preggo in Feb. I am a picky eater and didnt have very good eating habits, so we think that could be the reason I lost the baby the last week of Feb. Then we werent exactly trying again but we werent doing anything to stop me from getting pregnant, so I found out April 10 that I was pregnant again, but I lost that one the last week in April as well.

I've tried the butt under the pillow and the hips raised in the air, my DH even held my hips up high for me one time. Smile It is possible to get pregnant this way, but like the others said, you need to know when you are ovulating. That is the best way to find out what days you are fertile enough to try and hopefully get pregnant.

Good Luck!!
