Anyone actually get pregnant from sex 3 days pre-O??
I know that sperm can supposedly live 4-5 days in fertile mucus, but I just find it hard to believe.
I am not sure of O day. Could have been today, or could have been a couple of days ago.
We last BDed about 72 hours ago. I'm worried no spermies will be left if today is O day. Any stories to share?
I have sex each cycle day 10,12,14,16,18 as i never really know when i ovulate so i cover all the bases. My first preg i had sex on CD8 and that was the only time and i got pg i thought i would have been safe as Af had finished only 3 days previous, so it most certainly can happen.
This time round we were waiting for a positive OPK before BDing. We got lots of negatives, then a very faint positive which we decided wasn't a 'proper' positive and then 2 more days of negatives. So we thought we'd missed our chance for the month and didn't BD until the next day and I got pregnant. I reckon it could have partly been due to the fact that in my head we weren't BDing for baby making, just for fun ;D
This is a good question because I was just going to ask this today!
I am counting Friday, Jan 29th as first day of AF for me. (Thursday morning I had a quick pinkish gush and then nothing the rest of the day - so I'm counting Friday as first day of red bleeding - I know TMI)
So, I came off AF on Sunday.. and it was the lightest AF I've ever had! It was hardly even need for a pantyliner. Just because, I did a clearblue digital and it was negative. I had a glimmer of hope - that I was having implantation bleeding due to the scantiness of the period and lots of brown discharge. But it was a negative. I did not call my doctor for bloodwork etc.
I am just taking the pregnancy test as truth. Even though I was almost two months late for AF! I just must have skipped a cycle? (I did take about 10 tests overall)
My last full AF was Dec 5th... so I was in a looong waiting game. Thought for sure I was pregnant, but it didn't happen.
So, this AF hit - ever so lightly - and then on cycle day 5, 6 and 7 I had the worst ovulatory cramps ever! (does that word make sense - ovulatory?)
Each side hurt - - it felt like someone was squeezing and releasing my ovaries or like something popping every now and then.
We BD today - cycle day 8, I guess. But now I am regretting that we didn't take advantage of the last two days! My OPK sticks hardly registered a line so I figured I cannot be ovulating THIS EARLY!?!?!?
I wanted to know about that as well. We didn't BD much, just the 22nd, 27th & 30th but I may have O on the 29th so then I'm thinking.. well the 30th is the day after, so doubt that is very promising, and then 2 days before seems like a pretty big gap there.
I would love to hear more stories of women who were pregnant when last having sex 2/3 days before O.
