I've just been told that while TTC you should keep your feet warm and avoid cold drinks/foods.

something about a warm environment hmm

Googled it and got a lot of information from the believers and non believers but while I think it's worth a try... not sure I believe it?

Any other tales...any outcomes?

I fancy busting some myths grinbrewbrewbrew

Hold your legs up in the air for 10 minutes after sex or at the very least stay lying down (presumably to help the sperm 'swim' up your lady bits) - I've heard this quite a few times over the years!

Ps. I have 5 kids but I can't remember whether I ever tried this!!!!

I have heard recently of the socks thing! Can't say I have tried it.
Am 36 weeks PG with my third. Did the legs in the air thing

Anythings worth a try and it would probably make u both laugh and relax thus opening up your happy, baby-conceiving hormones!
Good luck to you my lovely!

Well I'm still not sure I believe it works but I did conceive both my kids the only times dp made me put my legs up after.

so ladies it sounds like a good trick thus far! And yes, earltea anything is worth a shot but I'm still getting my cycles settled so no legs in air dancing for me just yet !

Any other tales out there?

Every time I've conceived I've put a pillow under my hips and stayed lying down for a while afterwards. Oh and made sure I came after dp had.
