5 days before ovulation
 
It's currently 3 AM and I can't sleep, so I thought I would ask a question on here. My boyfriend and I have been TTC since February. We did the deed twice (unprotected), sometime around 12:30 AM, and then once again at 2 AM.

My question is, would I count this as CD 10 (yesterday) or CD 11 (today) since it happened early in the morning?

My other question is how good of a chance do I have of conceiving if we were to not have sex anymore this week? I'm supposed to ovulate in 5 days, (CD 16) and from my research, sperm can live inside the woman's body for up to 5 days. So, we did the deed 5 days before ovulation if that helps. And this might sound stupid, but we want to conceive a girl and I heard that if you have sex I think 4-5 days before ovulation, you have a better chance of conceiving a girl since sperm with the X chromosome live longer.
