How many weeks pregnant were you when you tested positive? Did anyone get a negative test first, then wait a few days for a positive? Please tell me about it
I got a BFP right away (with a cheap test)
With ds#2 I was also 12 dpo and had implant bleeding a few days before and I tested at night before bed and got a BFP and with DS#1 I was 14 dpo and got the BFP right away... no implant bleeding...

I need to go read about charting. I wonder if I can chart without having a period. :
I highly recommend the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility.

Plus, the sperm need a few hours after DTD to swim up to the egg and mature, so if you had already ovulated a day earlier, the egg was probably already gone.
Thankyou for this! I am still in the process of learning the timing and everything, so this is what I was wondering.
ETA: I checked my calendar (yes, I wrote it down ) and the IUD came out on Thurs, I *think* I ovulated Fri., we DTD Fri night and Saturday.
You might want to try the "Nursing Mothers Trying To Conceive" thread in TTC forum. There are quite a few mamas there without PPAF TTC.
I conceived my second child when my oldest was 18 months. I had no PPAF. We just BD whenever I had fertile quality mucus... that was a lot of BDing before I ever ovulated thouhg
