If I ovulated today, do I still have a chance at conceiving tonight or did I miss it already being that it is believed that the best time is the day before?

It is possible, so definitely try! The egg can live up to 24 hours, so you're best a__suming that it is possible rather than a__sunming it is not. How do you know that you ovulated? Are you temping? If you are, then you can only know after the fact when you temp goes up. If your temp went up today, then you would have ovulated yesterday. Opks are definitely not exact, so if you've taken an opk and got a positive yesterday, you could even ovulate tomorrow.

I have never temped. I just started ttc (really...lol). What I mean is, I haven't been trying to prevent and now I am ready to conceive again. I think I will start temping tomorrow morning si that I can start monitoring daily. How often should I do it?

I'm confused. Do you know approximately when you are meant to ovulate? If so, by what method are you estimating it? As for temping - take your temp every morning *before you get out of bed*. Leave your (basal) thermometer next to the bedside, and don't even get up to pee until after you've taken your temperature. Try to take it at the same time every day. You can record your chart on FertilityFriend.com - it's a great resource and will calculate your ovulation day for you (once you've had three elevated temps). You only need to temp once per day, since your later temps don't really mean anything aside from whether or not you've got a fever. You can unfortunately only determine your ovulation day after the fact with temps, so it's good to use opks in advance to predict ovulation. You can buy these for super cheap (<$1 each) online, or you can pay an arm and a leg at the local pharmacy. I personally buy them on ebay. How far are you along in your cycle this month?

My cycle is 31-32 days, last af was 2/10, next af is appox. 3/14. I thought that I ovulated on 2/22 b/c I had a fever for 2 days, cramping, and a small amt of cm. Now, yesterday morning I bd'd and there was a lot of cm and a little cramping. Today I bd'd, but it cm wasn't close to the amount like yesterday. That is why I think I ovulated yesterday, cd18, and doing the math, my next af is 14 days from then, I am kind of confused w/ determining which time I actually ovulated, and if anyone knows, could i still get pg from having s_x this morning? I doubt it b/c from what I understand, I would've had to do it the day or 2 before so the sperm could've been waiting for the eggs to be released. .HELP!
