Let me begin by saying my husband and I are TTC. We want a baby but don't have a lot of time to try. Anyways. I'm pretty sure I ovulated on the 21st of this month and we sex on the 23rd. I am not due for my period for a week or so from now. I'm just curious if there's any chance that I could be pregnant? I'm not getting my hopes but I was just wondering what the probability is. I was thinking about testing tomorrow but not sure if I should.

If you'r not positive of when you ovulated there could be a chance. If you didn't DTD before ovulation though, chances are slim to none.

If you did ovulate on the 21st then it is not likely that sex on the 23rd would result in a pregnancy.

How are you determining ovulation? It's possible that you could have ovulated earlier or later than you thing, depending on how accurate your means of determining ovulation are.

Good luck!

Someone might want to double check this for me, but I think the typical lifespan of sperm is 3-4 days, and the lifespan of the egg is 12-24 hours...but 24 hours being more unlikely. That's why your chances are better if you dtd before or right around ovulation.

I would say there's a chance but it's hard to say for sure unless you were dtd a lot around your fertile period. Like they say...it only takes one time!

Good luck!

Eta: I would wait until at least 2 days before a missed period to start testing!

I just go by cm. To be honest, I don't think that I am pregnant. I just have been feeling weird lately and that was the only reason I could think of. I will wait and see if my period comes before I get my hopes up. Thank you everyone.

I tested on the 28th, BFN. I just wanted to update this and say that around what I think was 7 or 8DPO, I was extremely tired and couldn't force myself to do anything. Then from 9 and 10DPO (today) I am having weird cramp like feelings. The one's yesterday were sharp near my bellybutton and the cramps today are dull. I'm due for AF soon but this feels different. I'm also having an increased amount of CM. I know this could just be from AF being due soon. Still not getting my hopes though.

Good luck, those sound like romising symptoms! When are you testing next?

Well, AF is only a day late right now so I'm thinking I'll wait two or three more days to test,

Awesome! Keep us updated! Hope this is it for you and you O'ed a couple days later than you thought. Sometimes you can get O type CM a day or two before you actually O. At least I do. Good luck!

After reading this I was going to say that this is EXACTLY what I experienced last month...I really felt like i was going to get a BFP ...all of the same symptoms, the fatigue, tugging at belly button etc. was also a few days late..and then AF showed, I've always thought that I had a Luteal Phase defect which would make me technically conceive, but then AF shows and 'washes it away' before it can implant. Have you ever considered this for yourself?
