For all you lucky ladies with a BFP...did you have sex ON the day you ovulated or before?

Just curious! If you are pregnant (and congrats to you!) did you BD on the day you ovulated, or did you BD before the day you ovulated?

AND..if you know already, are you having a boy or a girl?

Thank you! Wishing you all a happy and healthy 9 months! <3 TinyTreasures

I know what you mean seems so surreal for me too. I've had my tubes tied for close to 12 years (at the age of 21 cause I had 3 kids already) so this is all pretty new again. Happy & healty 9 months!!

I ovulated 3 days before I expected to (not using a monitor) and we BD 2 days before and day of O. I had no idea that your O date can change and I got my BFP at 12 DPO. I keep taking a test every few days because it seems so surreal. Congrats to everyone riding the HUGE baby train this month, and of course all the other mommies to be who are well on your way. Take care!

We also did it the 2 days after, just in case BabyMed was off.

We did it every other day, then both days before we ovulated.

Also every other day, it turned out to be the day before ovulation.

I was always told to do the every other day thing, and it worked for us. We ended up BDing the day before and after.

We Bd'd the two days prior to O day. I was upset that we had missed O day and got my BFP @ 10 DPO!!

Here's my Chart:

I am happy to say I can join this group and post my own message - BFP! We BD 3 days in a row before O, not the day of O. BabyComp predicts a girl, we'll see!

I BD two days before my O. We were too tired to do anymore. I had a boy.

We pretty much went all out too BD in the days leading up to O but didn't BD on O day (assuming BM correct with that date). Personally, I think I probably ovulated a day before since given when my OPK tested positive and fertility monitor peak days.... We won't know the sex until March.

We covered at least the 3 days before O and once on O day, I believe. We're having a boy. Here's my chart!

Here's my chart. My DH and I tend to go all out and BD every day from the time I get a light line on the OPK to the day my temp rises. He loves it!

Here is my chart. We did BD on O day but that is mostly because I got a peak on my monitor really early. I was actually aiming for before O because I would love a little girl, but I O'd on CD11 instead of 14 which is when I normally O.

Our fertility specialist gave us a 3 day window... so we did it once the first day, 3 times the next day and once the last day...

Thanks for posting your chart...I'd love to see more BFP charts posted!

I'm still in the 2ww but I can't believe we BD 3 straight days beforehand and 3 straight days afterhand, but missed the actual O day. I know there is still a chance, but I think its crazy we missed it like that.
