An embarrassing question

According to OPK this AM, today is the day. (or today and tomorrow...) i don't yet understand the concept 100%. Anyway, we have BD every day for the past 4 days, and will today and tomorrow. Here is my embarrassing question. I have been told to elevate my hips on pillows for about 20 minutes after. So I have tried that, but some of it still comes out when I stand up. Is this supposed to happen? I mean, it's not the same amt (like almost all of it) that usually comes out after I stand up right away, but still a good amt.

Oh yeah, quick problem with temp. Have been trying to chart for 1st time this month, temps have NEVER read higher than 96.7. Even today, although the kit says I'm O'ing. Should I just quit temping and trust the OPK? I guess the low temp is not really a problem since I'm apparently O'ing right?

Re: An embarrassing question

OK. First of all, OPKs don't tell you when you are Oing, they tell you when you are about to. That's why your temps have not gone up yet. They will go up AFTER you O. As far as what comes out after you BD, that's normal. It's not all sperm. It's still a good idea to stay elevated or at least laying down for about 30 minutes, but whatever comes out is ok. Hope this helped.
