Or should start, that is. My period always comes 3 days before the full moon, which would have been Tuesday. So on Monday we had unprotected sex, which we NEVER do, thinking it was safe because I had already been having cramps and emotional swings. Well, it's Thursday, still no period. No more cramps either. Very tired, and can't get enough fresh air (just like the 1st trimester with DD).
Of course, motherhood is tiring, spring air is intoxicating, and sometimes cycles cycle off course a bit. Oy.

Very, very unlikely... unless you are in the minority of women who can ovulate more than once a cycle, it is pretty much impossible! Once ovulation is completed (and you did not catch the egg!), you will get your period about 14 days later, whether you DTD or not.

If your not charting I would say anything is "possible" but not likely. I mean there is the rare chance that you ovulated very, very late in your cycle, some women have the odd cycle now and then, then "maybe". I do know one women personally who DTD the day before she was "expecting" AF and got pregnant.

It is unlikely, but not impossible. It is very common to have a cycle here and there where you ovulate much later than usual. Since AF isn't here yet, that means you are either pregnant or you ovulated late (or didn't ovulate at all).

Im pretty sure I conceived the day before my period was due with DS. I dont know if that means I ovulate more than once a month, which as PP said is very unlikely as only a small percentage of women do, but maybe I just happened to ovulate more than once in that specific month.

If you are charting and you know for sure that your period is due the next day, it would be pretty much impossible to conceive the day before. There would be no egg, because your luteal phase would be ending.

But, if you did conceive, it's that then you didn't conceive the day before your period is starting. You conceived in the middle of a very very long cycle, in which you didn't ovulated until very late. It does happen.

Just ftr, in TCOYF, she says that women do not ovulate twice in one cycle unless the eggs are released within 24 hours of each other (twins). It's not possible to ovulate twice as in once one week and then once two weeks later.
