A little history first... my first daughter was an oops baby and my second it only took one try to conceive her. This time around I didn't think I would have any issues, especially when we switched to the same sperm source of the first two.

 

Well we have tried 5 times over 4 cycles. I thought it was more, it sure feels like it. Anyway, so in trying to "increase our chances" we have been using an instead cup to hold everything in place after wards. Well come to find out today I have been putting it in wrong!!! bawling.gif

 

 I guess I have been sliding it in on my front vaginal wall not pushing it down and towards the back like you're suppose to. So these past 5 times I probably have been hooking it on top of my cervix and squishing it down.

 

Now I know it doesn't take long for sperm to get to the cervix, but we literally would inseminate then quickly insert the cup and move on about our day because we were "safe" from anything coming out.

 

Ugh, I'm just glad I realized this now and this next cycle we will just do things the "old fashioned way." Well, as much as two lesbians can. twins.gif
