Spam and Egg Sandwich

Actually, it's the Sperm Meets Egg Plan (SMEP). Can't help but think of spam and egg sandwich I used to love so much as a kid.

I came across this term while surfing the web sometime back. Typically for women who are trying again after  miscarriage, or first-timers who want to do all they can to increase their chances of getting pregnant.

It's really interesting, although it sounds stupid. Here's what you need to do:

  • On the 8th day of your cycle, BD every other day (so day 8, 10, 12... and so on)
  • Begin ovulation testing on day 10 and every day until its positive (it's gonna hurt a little on your pockets, but if you're serious about it, you won't feel the pinch)
  • When the test is positive, BD that night, and the subsequent 2 nights.
  • Stop on the 4th night, then once more on 5th and stop. Let the waiting begins
  • If the ovulation test never goes positive, keep BD-ing every other night until day 35
  • Statistics show that 40% of women after miscarriage will get pregnant on the first try if they still faithful to this plan, about double the number of normal population who are not on the plan.

Sounds so straightforward, I bet it's not. I'm also willing to try it starting tonight, with Pre-seed. 

Day 8 was yesterday really. I took Pre-seed out, read the instructions, yelled out to DH who was doing some work, waited for him to go to the shower, read the instructions again and.... fell fast asleep even before he came outta the shower. I was that tired.

Go spam & egg, go!!
