Mamas who got pg dtd 5+ days before o...

post #1 of 41

What gender baby did you have?

I know that I've heard of a few Mamas here getting pg from dtd 6-7 days before ovulating, and I've also heard that usually only girl spermies last that long. I'm just wondering what our Mamas here have had.

And FTR, DH and I dtd 7 days before o and we're now expecting a little one this Dec

My dh apparently has superhuman sperm (and/or I have superhuman EWCM, lol) because his sperm survived for nearly 6 days with ZERO doubt (I was charting and tracking obsessively, plus an early sono (to r/o twins) confirmed the conception date exactly). We had a boy. Supposedly I was supposed to have a girl but I had a giant strapping baby boy.

We had to actively try to conceive so we started dtd as soon as a week before O and every day until. We have 3 boys.

sperm lived at LEAST 6+ days with my pregnancy now. I'm still in shock. Anyhow, ultrasound says BOY-- I was certain it would be a girl!!!

I was charting (trying to avoid) and O'd a little earlier than usual. We DTD 5 days before O, and we had a boy. Best oops ever!

Well I think that little theory of girl spermies only lasting longer just got blown out of the water!

Please somebody tell me I have a chance of having a girl!

i know the last time i got pregnant we did it about 2 or 3 days before ovulation and now dd is here. i have always heard that if you get pregnant before ovulation, you're more likely to have a girl because the male sperms are faster swimmers (more likely to have a boy right at ovulation) but the girl sperms have more stamina in the long run.

We dtd 5 days before and have a boy to show for it.

With our first two, we got pregnant pretty much as I ovulated...*but*

I am currently ovulating (I don't chart, but do pay attention to discharge and cramping) and DH and I dtd twice in the last 7 days (the last being 5 days ago). I would not be shocked if I became pregnant...in fact, this thread has me wondering. I tend to notice things that occur around big events that sort of mark the big event for me...like foreshadowing (but in a good way). DH has super sperm and I am extremely fertile....so we'll see.

I am liking the sounds of this! hehe...We are going to TTC in December and plan to start TTC before my ovulation (im currently tracking) just to be 'safe'...if I fall pregnant right way it looks like I might get another boy by all of these replies! lol - Which I would just love!!!

I got pg with my dd after dtd the day after af said goodbye. I've always thought that was special... and we thought we were safe!

Being nitpicky here, but technically that's not exactly possible.... we know what you mean though...

I wasn't charting when we got pregnant with DD but I had a rough idea of my cycle. I had been ill, and we thought we had missed the fertility window when I was feeling better enough to start dtd.

Apparently we didn't though, and DD was born 9 months later. I can't say how close it was to o at all, but it certainly wasn't 5 days early or anything.

Ds was conceived after we dtd on cd9. I usually o anywhere from cd14 to cd18, so it was 5-9 days before o.

And yes, I know this is when he was conceived because we only dtd w/o protection that one time...

We dtd 5 days before O (I was charting, but we weren't really trying), and was expecting it to be a girl, but it was a boy.

6 days before O here and a boy!
post #18 of 41
twice a day for 10 days before and during and for quite a few days after ovulation ... we enjoy TTC.

and we love our 20 pounds of wiggly girl!
