Helen - May 6

Hi :) I had positive OPK's on Wed and Thur last week, I had a pain in my side on Fri, which I took to be O pain, unfortunately dh was out of the country, he works abroad, he came home on Monday so we had s_x then and on Tuesday, I'm thinking we missed the boat this cycle, does anyone more in the know think the same? TIA

Does anyone know if we were too late??

Ovulation predictors say to have s_x within 24 to 36 hours. So you may have caught it right on Monday, but it would be real close. Good luck!!!

Hope you're right Kim, my dh being away so much makes ttc hard enough but the fact that Af who has always been regular decided to go irregular as soon as we decided to ttc has really thrown a spanner in the works, cant tell dh in advance when to come home, and hes so busy at work this month he def wont be here at the right time, so that would mean waiting until June, and I have no patience LOL

Hi Helen. Yes, it looks like you were too late, if you really ovulated Friday. That's because an unfertilized egg is thought to live for up to 24 hours. (I don't think there's any definitive data, these are estimates.) If you had s_x 3 days after ovulation, that would just be too long for your poor egg to hang around waiting. Any chance you could have got preggers before? Because his sperm can live longer, estimates range from 2-5 days, although anything more than 3 is considered more unlikely. But 'ya never know! Baby dust..

Thanks Rainbow, couldnt have happened before as dh didnt get home until Monday, we cant get the timing right :(

:-( I'm sorry. But maybe next month..?! Just think, you could be getting pregnant in just 3 weeks time!! Good luck to you both.

Helen, probably missed the boat this cycle. That said, sometimes you can have an LH surge and OPK will be ++, but then you don't ovulate for some reason, and you have another LH surge and ovulate later. Slimmer chance of that, but it is possible. GL and Dust****

Thanks girls for the input, figured the chances were slim to none : ( might have to get dh to fake a family emergency to get a few days off work and fly home when I get my ++ on OPK, a few days of the promise of unlimited s_x should hopefully be enough to sway him ; ) sending baby dust right back at ye all : )
