3 Funny Things I Do Because I’m Trying To Conceive

I woke up this morning laughing at myself. Yes, TTC is no joke, but sometimes, omo, you just have to laugh at the things we women do whilst TTC.

I want to share my top 3 funniest things I’m doing now. Laugh all you want, but add your top 3 in the comments.

This is not restricted to those of us who are TTC, those of us who are already mothers, please feel free to give us your top 3 as well. We need a bit of humour in our lives.

Here goes, in no particular order:

1. Hang my legs after dtd…I know this one is quite popular and common. In my case, I don’t as much hang my legs as stand on my head. My husband cannot laugh hard enough when I do this…I’m sure I must look like a clown when I do this. LOL.

2. Drink 3 brands of Vitamin E just because 3 people testify to getting their bfp after starting to use one particular brand. ie Sola got her bfp after using brand A, so I bought brand A.
Then Nkem got her bfp after using brand B, so I bought brand B.
Only for Aisha to get her bfp using brand C, so, of course, I had to buy brand C.

I kid you not, I alternate brands A, B, and C. And it’s soooo funny when you think about it.

3. Using 6 Opks plus Clearblue Monitor and Clearblue digital strips when I think I’m getting close to ovulation. As in, everyday, for 3 days in a month, I use a total of 8 ovulation predictors. When I see the peak fertility on my clearblue monitor, it’s not enough, then I see a strong second line on one of the cheap strips, it’s not enough for me. I have to use 5 more…still not enough, so I use the clearblue digital stick. Then, gehn gehn! Poor DH is summoned from wherever he is to get home NOW! LWKMD!!!

I don’t even want to talk about what I do during the 2 week wait. That’s a story for another day.

I’ve shared mine, please go ahead and tell me the funny things you do, orr have done while ttc.

Hugs and kisses!


Hi, my name is Chidinma. I’ve been happily married for 4+ years (actually almost 6 years now), and my husband and I have been trying to have our own children for almost all the time we’ve been married, with no success…yet. We haven’t lost hope (far from it), and we believe it will happen very soon.

    Chidinma - February 13, 2014

Eji - February 13, 2014

You all will be blessed with the fruit of the womb very soon, IJN. I’m blessed to be the mother of one baby and one on the way. Each time DH and I were trying to conceive, i would prop up my hips with a pillow after dtd also and wait for like 30 minutes, before getiing up. I always thought I looked crazy. I had no idea the difference between all the different CM and couldnt do all the tracking stuff, so I’ll start disturbing DH from 8-9 dpo until 14 dpo. No respite o… every day. Nothing funny really.

    Chidinma - February 13, 2014

    To be honest, I’m still not too sure about the different types of CM myself. I’m glad your babies are here (and on the way).

ipio - February 13, 2014

Dreams, u no just kill me atall, my top 3s are avoiding sugar and other food not good for ttc and forcing Dh to do same.
Will not get up to do anything for one hour after dtd cos am still hanging legs.
Before now I fight Dh every month becos I wont let him touch me during tww.

Hello din a and others trying to conceive,well…I really can’t say much but I would like you guys to try pre-seed,it helps the sperm swim a lot faster,I know someone who used it and took in for triplets. But lost one and she’s close to her due date,left with 2 babies.i wish you guys success,the Lord isn’t stingy with babies.

    Chidinma - February 18, 2014

    Hmm, Uju, you’d be surprised at the things I’ve used. I use Preseed and conceive plus together, just in case. Awww, twins are what I want too. Thank you for sharing.

Hi, Been reading your articles.keep the good work.pls on this issue on trying to conceive, I had a similar experience. Don’t be too hard on yourself, you have to relax , see a gynaecologist, do all the necessary test to find out where the problem is make sure you are seeing the right Dr.and have faith .l have just one fallopian tube with three children and two miscarriages. I believe you will have your own children too .Finally there are drugs to correct hormonal anomaly.good luck and best wishes

    Chidinma - February 19, 2014

    God is great! Thank you for the good wishes. I’m grateful.

      Amaka - February 21, 2014

      Nma just got to know about your blog through your kid brother in my office and am liking it. coming to join the discussion on board, I tell you, it is totally a thing of God’s time. my lovely kid sister is equally in this group and I know all she is doing to became fruitful. I tell you this is your year of Fruitfulness and God must surely answer us. Anxiety spoils a great lot of thing for us. Do the small thing you can do as a human and woman and God will perfect our heart desire. I am a mother of one. I was not doing leg hanging or head standing. I was only doing lying down for a long time to allow everything to settle down well. I Love You All.

        Chidinma - February 22, 2014

        Hi Amaka. Welcome to my little blog. How is Port Harcourt today? I pray God answers us sooner than we expect. Please tell your sister to come on over, the more, the merrier.

Didnt try any of the things here cos i never knew about them, i was too naive i guess but my hubby will touch my womb every morning and decree that my womb will reward the Lord as stated in his words. God’s word works wonders, now i’m blessed with 3. For all TTC on this forum, your womb will reward the Lord in Jesus name.

jane emmanuel - May 26, 2014
