Legs in the air.

Hello ladies smile

A colleague of mine told me that in order to increase the chance of conception I should lie on my back with my legs up against a wall for half an hour post sex!!

Obviously I know it is silly - but I still did it last night!!! grin

Also - this is a seriously TMI question but I do need to ask it.

After sex, how much sperm do you find leaks out of you?? blush

Even after having my legs up for the wall for about 15 minutes I still found there was quite a lot of leakage when I stood up, haha.

I can't believe I'm talking about this!

I guess I just thought that all the sperm would be shot up to where it needed to be???

good luck

Well - things aren't looking too good this morning sad

I tested this morning because my husband wanted to be there when I did it as I did it all on my own yesterday. It got a positive line but it was very faint which I wasn't expecting. I tested with another brand and that also came back as a faint positive. Both of these bands were the same ones I used yesterday when I got bolder lines. I then tried another brand and on that one no line appeared at all sad

I have since done a test with a Clear Blue and although it was positive, it was also a much fainter line than the one I got with yesterday's test.

So now I'm worried I'm having a chemical pregnancy sad

Oh Writer sad . I really hope not. It doesn't look good, I know, but there may be another explanation.

Did you still use FMU?
Had you drunk a lot beforehand/peed during the night?

What brand were you using and what's the sensitivity? I'm not an expert, but I wouldn't expect the hormone levels to fall that quickly... hmm . Were the tests from the same pack? How many weeks are you? When did you miss your period?

Wishing you all the best and got my fingers very very tightly crossed that this works out ok for you and your husband flowers

I used FMU this morning and got faint lines. I had a drink before I went to bed about 11pm last night and then I did the tests about 7am when I woke up.

I have been using 4 different brands - all of which gave definite BFPs yesterday - nice bold lines smile.

I have used all the same brands today (from the same packs) and 3 of them still said positive but the lines were much lighter and took longer to appear. The other test came back negative.

My period is due today.

I'm having lots of support from MN members and they are making me feel a bit more positive about things that maybe it isn't over smile

Ahh, I didn't realise you'd tested so early. It may well just be because of that - you're so early that your hormone levels aren't very high. The slightest variation in concentration of your urine could therefore affect the test results. Fingers crossed, don't despair x

Writerwannabe83 Sun 21-Jul-13 12:28:13

Thanks RaRaz - I just can't help but feel it is too good to be true. It is all I have wanted for so long and maybe sheer panic is my way of adapting to the news!! smile

Writerwannabe83 Sun 21-Jul-13 12:30:05

ps) I just tested again on my very last test, which coincidentally was the same test that gave me a BFN earlier, and there is a definite positive line grin grin

RaRaZ Sun 21-Jul-13 14:11:58

Great!!!! grin Now, stop testing for a day or two, hey? You're still very early and your hormone levels will be very low and may not always show up - you're gonna stress yourself out if you keep testing. You're pregnant - so mega congratulations! flowers - so be happy and fingers crossed you will stay that way. Best of luck smile x

Writerwannabe83 Sun 21-Jul-13 14:21:47

Thanks RaRaz - my fears have been buried after having POAs of the digital Variety (which my husband just bought me) and the screen reads: "Pregnant. 2-3"

There's no mistaking that!!! grin

I still can't quite believe it though!!

We have only had sex 3 times, lol grin

ZingWidge Sun 21-Jul-13 14:31:31

Writerwannabe83 Sun 21-Jul-13 14:36:05

Thanks for all your kind words x thanks

ZingWidge Sun 21-Jul-13 15:01:26

atta girl!

now get your preggers arse back to you know where wink and tell them the good news!

qazxc Sun 21-Jul-13 20:47:24

don't worry about the varying lines at this early stage the concentration in the urine will vary depending on how much you are drinking and peeing.
A line is a line, you can't be "a little bit" pregnant (you either are or you're not).
Stop stressing and enjoy yourself!
