Chances of Pregnancy from BD only on ovulation day

Hi everyone,

I have been actively trying to conceive the past few months and I am using the Clear Blue Digital Ovulation tests (not the advanced, the ones that only give you the 2 most fertile days). I got a positive test (smiley face) on Thursday around 7:00 p.m. and then another positive on Friday around 5:00 p.m. Due to my fiancee traveling for work we did not BD until Friday around 11:00 p.m. I was just wondering what you guys thought my chances are? The only other times we were able to BD were much earlier in my cycle. So was this too late? I know the instructions that come with the clear blue digital tests say to make love anytime in the next 48 hours to maximize your chances. But a lot of the stuff I am reading online makes it sound like ovulation day is usually too late. Please let me know what you guys think.

I think you gave it a running chance, and should be okay! Good luck!

I only had sex once on the day I ovulated and conceived my youngest. Good luck!

With both my youngest and the baby I'm currently pregnant with, we *only* DTD on my ovulation day

Well, first the OV test turns positive 24-48 hours BEFORE you ovulate, so if you BD on smiley day, it will be ahead.

My Surprise #3, I ovulated that day or the day after (using mucus based, had fertile EWCM both days). Baby # 3.

I'm pretty sure I've conceived this time from BD on ovulation day!

I got pregnant with mine the day after the smiley faces and we only DTD that one day (bloating and older kiddos had things going on) so you definitely have chances
