Hey. I'm new to this board, I was frequent on the Due Date Club for July 2005 but miscarried at 15 weeks in mid Jan.
Anyway, my question is...Some people say you should try every other day when your ovulating and others say everyday. Is one better than the other? To me, it would seem like a more likely chance to conceive if you had sex everyday?
I am sooo sorry for what you are going through. I can't imagine how you must feel.
My hubby and I tried every other day and it worked for us after 2 months of trying. I also did other things that I believe contributed to us conceiving so fast. Some of it is superstitious but I figured I didn't want to take any chances.
I drank lots of raspberry tea (my nautropathic doctor said it promotes fertility),
I had a little crystal frog on my bedside table (I read that frogs promote fertility),
I made sure that I O AFTER he did and we only did it missionary style,
I slept with a small pillow under my hips on those nights,
AND I relaxed and made it special and didn't look at it as a job - rather feeling the love
I am so sorry for your loss! I have been there too and its not an easy road. Better things will come! In the mean time, here is a cool website (www.pregnancy.org). You may have already checked it out but I love it! As far as BD everday or every other day, I am not really sure. We will try the EOD for this cycle and see what happens. Here is a small portion of information I found on the web site. Maybe it will take the work out of baby making.
"Make love often during your fertile period (the five days leading up to ovulation). If you've got the stamina to make love at least every 48 hours, you will ensure that there's a fresh shipment of sperm waiting in the fallopian tube at any given time."
"Don't make sex into a chore. Consider these words of wisdom from one of the parents interviewed in The Unofficial Guide to Having A Baby: "Do not have sex every day. If you're trying to maximize your chances of conceiving, it's better to go every other day around the time you are ovulating. You are also more fresh, and therefore can put your heart into making sex as pleasurable and romantic as possible."
