I’ve read through some older posts on this, but am looking for any new input.
my husband is traveling for work and is out of town for 2 weeks, which sucks for many reasons. One being that we missed almost my entire fertile window. We were able to DTD 2 and 3 days before my positive OPK which I think would be 4 and 3 days before ovulation.
Is there any real chance that we could have conceived? Did anyone else successfully get pregnant that long before O? I know it’s technically possible, just looking for personal experiences.
I had a chemical pregnancy in August and I’m just… Eager, I guess. I’m only 4Dpo right now I’ve got a while to wait to find out.

Oh- also we started using preseed this cycle as well.

There’s a chance. I’ve heard sperm can live up to 72 hours (though others will say otherwise). I believe there’s a few bees on here who got PG by only BD’ing 1 time in their cycle.

@yougotme: We BD 4 and 5 days before ovulation and the day after O and got PG. Didn’t pull out 5 days before I Oed and had fraternal twins. It’s possible. But I’ve also had 5 months of great timing and didn’t get pregnant those months.

@Spottts: thanks for sharing. That’s kind of what I’m looking for. I know there are so many variables. this is earlier than we tried the last few months, so maybe something different will click.

It’s definitely possible or I wouldn’t be pregnant right now. We only DTD on O-6 and O-4 and here I am, 23 weeks pregnant. I was tracking O using OPKs and CM and my dates are correct.

It’s possible, we only BDed one day in the cycle that I got my BFP. Not sure when I Oed but yeah I’d say it’s possible, but everyone is different.

My 32-week-pregnant-belly says that 4 days before O is plenty of time to get pregnant…
ETA: I was charting, and it was the only day we did it. Hubs was leaving for a trip… we know the exact date and time this little bugger was made. Ha!

thanks for responding. I guess I do still have a chance. I thought I was out this month. Now I can spend the next week obsessing over it, haha.
