I finally got my crosshairs on FF and it says my O date was 2 days after I thought it was. I'm feeling like I messed up now because we BD'd 2 and 3 days before O. The 2 days before I used an Instead soft cup after and hubby said, "That was it! You're pregnant!" LOL Anyway, I'm just looking for some reassurance and hoping that I didn't miss my egg.

This babe was conceived from DTD 4 days before I O'd. Shocked even me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
ETA:<br>
From what I understand from TCOYF, the day before isn't too late either. Just depends on your cm. HTH!

Spermies live for up to 5 days... 1-3 days before is optimum for conception, so you are good.<br><br>
With DD we DTD about 3 days before (according to the date of conception we got from three early ultrasounds to pinpoint dating). Just once. And I was on birth control!

DD was conceived 4 or 5 days before O (I know the 24hr period in which I O'd, but not down to the hour.)<br><br>
I thought I had missed the egg.

This babe in belly was conceived 3 days before O. TMI, but it was also a quickie before work and I immediately jumped in the shower after!

A lot of people will tell you this is how their LOs were conceived. DTD two or three days before O is pretty ideal. Let those swimmers get there before the release. Hopefully a few survive. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/Peace.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Peace"><br>
Kinda off topic but have you seen <i>Sizing up Sperm</i> aka the great sperm race? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Thank you for making me feel better, everyone! Now I just need to try and relax until I can test. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

1-3 days pre-O are the prime fertile days, not the day of, so i'd say your timing is great.

Okay, great! I think I was just miffed that I missed the day before O more than anything. But if 2 days before is great as well then I'm happy. Thanks again, everyone! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> And I'm going to go to YouTube and find that video right now.

Absolutely. Tis is the window that Shettles suggests for conceiving a little girl too. Hope you saved DD's baby clothes! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
