Basics question


Hey

Right so.. after he ejaculates, how long do you lay there for? To make sure all the swimmers get a good chance?

Thanks

Honestly there's conflicting advice about this one, some say there's no need to lay down and wait after sex and some suggest it's a good idea. Personally I always chose to and lay with a pillow under my bum for at least 30 minutes. I've never had a bfp if I skipped doing it.

Yes we are ttc, only since last week though! I've been on the pop pill, so no periods at all, I have no idea what my bodies doing, we thought we would give it a few months before I started testing and temping..
do you have a favourite brand of wrap or carrier?

Not really. I have a few custom made woven wraps that are my favourite and I have a nova carrier which I love but I swap and change around a lot. Could open up my own sling library lol. Do you?

I haven't tried a nova carrier, I had a connecta, and tula, and I wanted to try a onbu but never got around to it, I love wrapping, but never got the hang of back wrapping, that's why I turned to ssc, I'm hoping to learn a few more carries with shorter wraps if I'm blessed with another baby.

How are you feeling anyway? Have you told anyone your exciting news yet?
