EWCM and ovulation


DH & I are currently NTNP for #3, so I'm not temping or using OPK's. DH & I DTD on Thursday (CD 11). The next day (through today) I've noticed the EWCM. My question is, is there still a chance that I could get pregnant? Usually the EWCM is before ovulation (I believe) so I wasn't sure if we DTD too early? I also noticed cramps (O pain?) on Saturday.

DH is out of town so we won't be able to BD again until Tuesday.

Your fertile mucus patch is going to be mostly during your fertile period - the days leading up to and including ovulation. Once O occurs, your CM dries up pretty quickly. Sperm can survive up to 7 days (5 being the more common upper end, 7 is fairly extraordinary) so there is still a chance. But I'd try to make it happen tonight just to give yourself a better shot!
