Question Another insem. question

This cycle, since I am trying it a bit different (syringe as opposed to Instead cup) , I did more research, and read where you should wait until the semen 'liquifies' before insemination...Ummm..
 
...I already thought it was liquified! What do they mean by this??

It takes about 15-30 minutes *I think* to liquify (I'm not a sperm expert by any means).
 
When it comes out it's kind of jellied slightly and it starts to liquify in the minutes afterward. That's when the sperm really gain motility in my understanding.
