I'm 28 and we are TTC #1. We started TTC in January and in February we were pregnant and I MC the baby at 5 weeks naturally. I have had 2 cycles since the miscarriage. I'm a regular 28 day cycle so I figured as long as I hit days before CD 14 I was good. I decided to take OPKs this month and it said my surge didn't come until CD 15. I took it that morning. BD'g didn't happen and my husband had to leave for work on CD 16. Is it possible that I might have gotten the surge CD 14 afternoon? We BD CD 12, 13 and 14. I'm really hoping just because we couldn't on CD15, 16 or 17 that I'm not out! This has been such an emotional roller coaster for us with the MC. I thought being a 28 day cycle it was day 14 every time but I'm guessing not unless the OPK could have been wrong of I got the LH surge CD 14 afternoon.

Hello! We are very similiar! I'm also 28 and ttc #1. The first month off ttc I got a bfp and MC at around 6 weeks.

It's quite possible you ovulated later. But don't let that discourage you. Sperm can live up to 6days! It's ideal to bd the day or day of ovulation but try not to let that worry you so much. A good rule of thumb my doctor told me is as soon as you get the positive OPK keep bding for up to 7 days after, every other day. She said sometimes your body gears up to ovulate but then waits a few days to actually ovulate.

Hang in there!
