I finally got my crosshairs on FF and it says my O date was 2 days after I thought it was. I'm feeling like I messed up now because we BD'd 2 and 3 days before O. The 2 days before I used an Instead soft cup after and hubby said, "That was it! You're pregnant!" LOL Anyway, I'm just looking for some reassurance and hoping that I didn't miss my egg.

This babe was conceived from DTD 4 days before I O'd. Shocked even me.

ETA:
From what I understand from TCOYF, the day before isn't too late either. Just depends on your cm. HTH!

Spermies live for up to 5 days... 1-3 days before is optimum for conception, so you are good.

With DD we DTD about 3 days before (according to the date of conception we got from three early ultrasounds to pinpoint dating). Just once. And I was on birth control!

DD was conceived 4 or 5 days before O (I know the 24hr period in which I O'd, but not down to the hour.)

I thought I had missed the egg.

This babe in belly was conceived 3 days before O. TMI, but it was also a quickie before work and I immediately jumped in the shower after!

Hello.

A lot of people will tell you this is how their LOs were conceived. DTD two or three days before O is pretty ideal. Let those swimmers get there before the release. Hopefully a few survive.
Kinda off topic but have you seen Sizing up Sperm aka the great sperm race?

Thank you for making me feel better, everyone! Now I just need to try and relax until I can test.

1-3 days pre-O are the prime fertile days, not the day of, so i'd say your timing is great.

Okay, great! I think I was just miffed that I missed the day before O more than anything. But if 2 days before is great as well then I'm happy. Thanks again, everyone! And I'm going to go to YouTube and find that video right now.

Absolutely. Tis is the window that Shettles suggests for conceiving a little girl too. Hope you saved DD's baby clothes!

Awesome! I'd LOVE another girl! It would be fun to see some of my daughter's cute outfits again.
