Hello wise pregnant ones!

lol...

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.


And was it a girl!?

TIA

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.

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.

well, you can't get pg before ovulation, but you can dtd before o and become pg.

Yes, it happened to me. Yes, it was a girl. Good luck!

Yes. Both times were several days prior to ovulation and both times (at least from the latest u/s) were girls.

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.

*8* days before ovulation, and according to ultrasound dating baby dates from the day I think I ovulated. Oh and according to mulitiple ultrasounds he's a boy.

We were TTA and I didn't have fertile CM on CD 11 when we DTD twice. I believe I ovulated on CD 14 based on mittelschmerz and temp rise. . .and now I'm pregnant. Don't know the gender yet.
