I have 3 boys that were concieved on the day of ovulation.<br>
Now I am shockingly pregnant with #4, concieved 4 days before ovulation this time. I really didn't think this was possible for us.<br><br>
Just want to see how the whole Shettles Method idea worked for some of you. ( We didn't use the method for this baby, it just snuck in there!)<br><br>

My 2 boys & the one waiting to be born, which I am told is also a boy, were all created by DTD no more than 2 days before ovulation. I voted the day before as that is what happened with the one I am currently carrying <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

I don't know about my first, but my second was a boy, 2 days before O, and this one is a girl, 3 days before O. We were trying for 3 days before with #2 but I ovulated a day early.

Of my four, the only one I charted with was my son. He was an 'oops' with super sperm - 5 days before O. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

My last two boys (not sure what we're having this time) were conceived day of or day before O. This time, we were slightly wider of the mark, but hit on both sides so I have no idea when we conceived. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug">

We're having a boy, and DTD 4 days before O. Because of the timing, I was convinced it would be a girl but ultrasound says boy. My sis had a baby girl, DTD 5 days before O.<br><br>
My other two pregnancies--<br>
girl--day before O<br>
boy--day before O

We had an IUI timed to the day of ovulation, so I know for sure. But I also know that my DH's sperm sample had none of the fast kind of sperm, which are supposedly the ones most likely to be male.

We were doing timed intercourse fertility treatments with both pregnancies. Our first was Boy day of O or up to two days after, our second was twin girls day of O or up to two after.
