If you got a positive OPK on the 30th, you would be ovulating in the next day or two which would make tues/weds/thurs your fertile window. Sounds like you hit the window pretty well already. EWCM isn’t always the best indicator. But OPKs can’t always be relied on either. I prefer temping, it’s the only surefire way to know for sure when you are ovulating.

The best time to have sex is before you ovulate (not after) because the egg only lives 24 hours (I think)…and sperm can live for something like 5 days.  So yeah, you’re probably good to go.  Better off with sperm waiting there for the egg to drop.

So, you BD’d the 30th, 1st, and early on the 2nd. Then you got a + OPK midday on the 2nd. That means that by now, you’ve probably already ovulated by now or will very very soon. 

It sounds like you were maybe trying to hit right at ovulation and that’s why you’re worried? Your best days to get pregnant are the days before you ovulate so you had very good timing. You could have possibly gotten one more BD in, but honestly your best days are before, not the day of.

Someone else posted this and I thought it was a great visual:

So you’ll notice that O day is only 5-10% chance. Your best day is 2 days before O, followed by 1 day before O. So basically, all 3 of the days you BD’d were excellent timing.

Blondie2014:  I would bet on you Oing late yesterday or sometime today. It’s possible to O tomorrow, but usually you O the day after your + OPK. If you don’t get your BFP this cycle (FX that you do!!) then I highly suggest temping and using the fertility friend app. It was a little intimidating when I first started using it, but now 5 cycles later, I LOVE it. It’s nice to get temp confirmation that you O’d.
