no body can sit for long in same posture and it is not possible also., what you do is take a good chair always try to sit as straight as possible and with a proper back support.

I have found on many different websites that there are different dates of conception. I wanted to know what would be the probable dates of intercourse, are those the same as the dates of conception? My doctor gave me a due date of September 21st, and he said most probable date would be December 15th. Websites have given me far different answers. Any suggestions?
