    Position during sex or legs in the air won't help. But, having sex just before ovulation which is around day 10-13 (counting from the first day of your period) if you have a regular 28 day cycle will improve your chances of conceiving. If your cycle is longer, say 35 days, your most fertile time is around day 17-20
