DH and I DTD Day 12 and 13/14 (it was 1am)... I havent peaked on my monitor yet (today is day 15) but have had EWCM for days. I'm hoping to get a peak tomorrow. The last two months my peak was day 15 and day 17.
Just wondering if anyone has personal experiences of getting pregnant from BDing 3 days before O? I doubt we'll DTD again before then, we're not technically TTC.
When we were trying to get pregnant both times, we started as soon as I got EWCM and did the deed every day until the day of ovulation. Both times, I ended up pregnant, both were girls. Of course, I can't really say which event produced the sperm that made the baby each time...so now...this may be totally useless to you.

we dtd three days before o this cycle and pg we are! lol. i counted the cycle out because our timing was so off, but then had some mysterious spotting. it can happen, though i dont think its too common.

I'm not sure what all of the acronyms on your post are, but I got preggo before ovulating this time around. If you are talking temperature, I didn't get a high temp that stayed, but I think that was because it was February and I woke up COLD every morning thanks to a bed hog hubby! We use NFP, so my signs were clear that I was preggo except for temp.
im pretty sure that i got pregnant with my son when i was on vacation, a few hundred miles away from my husband. we dtd before i left, and if dates were correct four or five days later i was pregnant. i went through my whole pregnancy thinking that the OB had calculated her dates wrong somehow, but long after my son was born i read Taking Charge of Your Fertility and i was like, OOOoooohhhhhhh! That's how it happened!
Well, you don't actually get pregnant before ovulation. Sex does not = pregnancy - you have to ovulate so you technically 'get pregnant' when the sperm meets the egg. Not the day you have sex.
To answer your question I got pregnant after having sex 5 days before ovulation. We had sex on the evening of day 6 of my cycle. Of course I didn't get pregnant on day 6 but the sperm lived for 5 days and I got pregnant when I ovulated on day 11.
And yes it was a girl
ETA: We were TTA and had been charting for years.
