Ovulating And Husband Leaving What To Do

Hopeful - January 27

My husband and I have been trying for 5 months. We were just going with “it” for the first two months, then when nothing happened I began to buy the ovulation kits and started taking my temperature. During that time my Cycle went from 32 days (which is normal for me) to 40 days for two cycles! I think I was pregnant one of those times but that’s another story. I stopped 'stressing out' and stopped testing so much. I knew with my regular cycle I should start testing about day 16. So this cycle I did, I started to notice the ovulation lines getting darker. I’m due to Ovulate in the next 24 hours! (Day 18) The good news is we have made love the last three days, including this morning. The BAD news is…My husband is leaving for a funeral (out of town) at 3pm today(1/27). He is scheduled to leave from work. He won’t be back until 5 p.m. tomorrow(1/28). I had this whole thing planned out, we were going to have s_x every 12 hours during this time. Then…Life happens…I have tried to see if he will come home at lunch today, so we can make love to me before he leaves. He is not sure it’s possible. I guess my questions are 1. Should I be concerned since we did have s_x this morning? Is there anything I should or can do? (aside from traveling with him)? Am I making too much out of it?

when it happens, it will happen. And you did make love this morning so I say just make love every day and you'll be pregnant before you know it. They also say that women who stress over trying to get pregnant takes longer to get pregnant but when you just go about your life and don't think about it thats when it will happen! So try not to stress over it like what's her face did on S_x and the City ( if you watch it, whats her name? I can't think of it? ) But anyways chill and let nature take it's course and good luck to you!!!

I would say that the s_x you had this morning should more than be enough. Sperm CAN last anywhere from 3 to 5 days (especially during ovulation - the cm keeps the sperm all nice and 'fresh' for days!). Best of Luck to you and your hubby! This could very well be your month! Please let us all know....(you should start to experience 'signs' if the s_x you had today 'takes' - in about 2 to 3 weeks)

Hopeful~ You really increased you odds by having s_x this morning. He's really only going to be gone for 26 hours, so when he gets home, try and try and try again. They say you should have s_x every other day any ways when you're ttc. Considering the sperm can live inside you for up to 5 days, your situation is really not that bad at all. Let us know when you get the BFP! Good luck!

Thanks for all the great advice! I needed someone to bring me back down to earth. My husband did not come home for lunch nor did I go with him. I decided to do something unique or different tonight when he comes home! Spice it up a little bit ;-> It's not in our hands and the more I stress the more it won't happen.. As my mother also says "A pot watched over is a pot not cooked" So I guess try to focus on other things. Check back in 2 weeks to see if I'm pregnant, otherwise there is always Next month!
