Day you caught your eggie!

Postby starflower » Sat Feb 10, 2007 5:59 pm

Hi everyone

I am trying to work out if I have BD'ed enough to catch the egg this month as I am really paranoid we havent BD'd enough and its driving me crazy.

I got a +OPK on cycle day 29, and BD'd the night before. But only had a slight thermal shift today - day 31 so am thinking that O on day 30. That means I had only BD'd two days before on day 28!!! Confused?! Me too!!

Please could you let me know what day you think you actually conceived in relation to O!

Thanks so much
Charlotte :D

PS we are trying and hoping for a girl, so we followed the advice to only BD up until you get a +opk, now I am wishing I didnt follow that advice and just BD'd non stop!!!

Sorry I didn't take your poll because it confused me! LOL

I think this is the answer you are looking for:

When I got my bfp in 10-2006, we ONLY bd'd on CD10 and CD12. According to FF, I O'd on CD15.

Does that help? Good luck to you! :wink:

Hi Angela!!

Dont worry, it confused me too, and I wrote it!! ha ha!!!

Thanks for replying and to those of you who took part in the poll! Thank you for giving me the info on when you had your BFP, I wish you well in your future TTC and really hope you get a BFP very soon.

What I am trying to determine is that I BD'ed about a day and a half/two days before I O, and this was under the instructions of a certain Dr Shettles, that I hold off from BDing at O if I want a girl...so we BD'd at night, the next day I got a +OPK, so stopped.

Hhowever, when push came to shove, and I had O'd, I realised that I didnt mind if I had a boy or a girl, and would be blessed with either, so I was angry with myself for being so silly and holding off from BD on day of O and wondered if it was still likely that I have conceived!!!

I know that that the stats always say that the fertile window is up to 5 days before O, and very fertile is three days before, BUT I was wondering if in fact it is the minority of people who conceive in those timeframes, and the majority who conceived if they BD on the day of O!!!!! Which is why I set up the little poll!

Wow, now, if you werent confused then Angela, you probably are now!!! Sorry!!!!!!!!

Best wishes
Charlotte xxx :D

Charlotte you are cracking me up! Yes, I am further confused, LOL. I don't think there's any true way of measuring the bd/o ratios. I would say that you're in the game, and that's awesome!

Good luck in the 2ww and babydust!

all i can say is i was thinking the same so iam NOT confused, lol...i get what you are saying. i have read sites with percentages of chances of conception varying on what day you bd, but honestly, i had seen conflicting info in those sites, as their percentages did not match up to the other charts i had read, which means to me...HOGWASH, lol.

i don't think (as much as we want them to) that they can break it down totally into percentages by day anyway. i have read many many many times, and always the same jargon so iam more opt to believe it, that you are fertile for 5 days prior to O, and 24 hours post O. (cause the egg CAN survive for 12 sometimes 24 hrs), but bd-ing before O- and during O is your best bet. i heard before O is better then on O-day, but who knows. i think the whole scientific community is baffeled by exacts where this is concered. i'd say sex up to 3 days prior to O, yeilds the best bet. O day if you can hit it is nice to, but many people have skipped O day and got a bfp.

if dh's sperm are really strong then i'd say 5 days before holds some possibility, but i don't get enough great mucus, so i don't think my man's survive more then maybe 48 hours, but then again...how can we prove that? we can't prove any of it, so like the PP said, you did good! i had lots of ttc sex and NADA, and then a 1 timer, didn't even know my time of the month, was on top, like they say to not do, and jumped right off, pulled up my pants (didn't lie down with legs elevated, lol) and that worked so mother nature is a wonder for sure. now all the luvin i can get isn't workin but tryin though.

GL will be looking for updates.

hugs, sherry

ps- plus i also read that no matter opks and temps and all that jazz, there is still a + or - window of up to 3 days of error, meaning no matter how good you do, there is still room for error, and it's a crap shoot, if that which was on peeonastick is correct.

Hi starflower,

I understand your question perfectly cos I have just done exactly the same thing :(

We BD'd on Sunday and Monday. Then on Tuesday I got my + OPK but hubby was on shift work so we didn't BD again. Today is O day. We haven't BD'd since that Monday night. So I also wonder if I have screwed it up. I know technically 2 days before O is still fertile but wondered, like you, how many pregnant ladies did get pg this way i.e. not BD'ing day of O or even the day before.

So there you go. I can be your '2 days before O' buddy :wink:

I am really cheesed off about it actually... silly I know but just feel really fed up, like I have got it wrong and will have to wait another month again now :(

What the girls have said on this thread has been so helpful, and clearly, correct!!! I felt really silly for not BDing on the day of O, but it was ok thankfully. And I hope its the same for you too.

I hope it all goes ok for you, let me know how you get on, 2day before O Buddy!!!! :D

Big CONGRATULATIONS.

sorry Jen, havent had a chance to come back on till now!!

Yes, I am sending you loads of baby vibes right now!! ha ha!! I really hope you get the same good result, then we will just have to wait and see if good ole Dr Shettles was right...!!!! :jump:

Do you have other children?? I would adore another little boy, the sex really isnt the reason, it would just be wonderful to have a girl after 3 boys, but I am very grateful just to be pg and really count my blessings. So, if I have tipped it in my favour for a girl, well thats just very lovely. If not, I have a wonderful 4th son! However, I have no more boys names left ... hmmmm!!!! :|

Let me know how you get on, cant wait to hear your news!!

3 boys :o Ah, well, I know a healthy baby is the main thing but wouldn't be it lovely if you did get your girl :D

No, I don't have kiddies. I am 35 and trying for baby number 1. So this is all a bit new to me :wink:

Hope to speak to you again some time and hear how it is all going for you and whether you get a girl :mrgreen:
