Hi, I am joy, mom to two darling boys!! Wishing for some pink around the house


Well its that time of the month again, and another query, question!

We dtd last Thursday night, early Friday am, and also Friday night early Sat am!! I didnt think I was ovulating so we didnt use protection.. (I know you can still get preggo) which leads to my question.. Sunday, (yesterday) I had a few cramps and took an opk and the line came up right away on test(dark and a positive read, and the same today maybe even darker today).. so both were pretty dark.. Then this am I took one again and another definitely dark line.. This evening I am having the ewcm extreme. I have heard you can still get pregnant because sperm can live for a few days.. There is NO question I am ovulating right now. . We always said if we had another we would love a girl! Soo, how likely is it to get pregnant having sex what 24-48 hours before ovulation? Is that considered 24-48 hours? We had sex about 2 am both times, so 2 am friday and 2 am saturday..

Thanks for all you advice you are all so knowledgeable at this!!

Hi Joy! Welcome to the board I too already have a little boy so am TTC pink!

If you are TTC a girl, you should try to time DTD at least 3 days PRIOR to ovulating, so I'd say based on your timing, that it would be more likely to be a boy...

There is certainly a chance of pregnancy based on your timing... I fell pregnant the first time by DTD 4 days before ovulation!

Good luck, I hope you get the result you want

Hmmm... I'm not too sure how opk's work, so can't give you any advise there!

Ugh, I'm so annoyed... I'm getting ovulation cramps today - TWO days early! Please send me 'don't-ovulation-yet' vibes, lol! *sigh* I'm sure two little boys wouldn't be that bad, right?! We won't be having another one!

I've consistently ovulated on CD17 for the past 4-5 cycles, so yes, we DTD on CD12, 13 and 14, hoping that would be at least 3 days out from ovulation! I'm still very achy and sore so not sure what is going on... I don't normally get this much pain from ovulation.

So when are you expecting AF? What is your 'testing' date?!

My period would be due about Dec 12th, I think I could test around the 8th?? Both by other pregnancies came up on 8/9 DPO with dollar store tests. So I guess its likely I could be pregnant??? When are you testing???

AF will be due on the 14th Dec I think, but I generally wait until I'm 'late' before I test... I never want to see a BFN, so am very good with making myself wait!! lol!

Yep, I think there is a chance you could be pregnant based on when you DTD, good luck!

Oops, my little guy has woken up, better go!
