I would say it depends on how long after your + OPK you normally O. There’s really no chance of conception on O+1, so there’s probably not a strong reason to BD tomorrow unless you have a really long surge.

To me, O-2, O-1, and O are the days I really want to get, so I’d probably suck it up and BD today if I were you, haha. But I think getting just O-1 and O-2 is still great, so if you really don’t feel like it, it’s not like you HAVE to!

You can Google “chances of conception days ovulation” or something and see lots of charts. O-2 or O-1 are generally considered the most fertile days, I believe.

i would try one more if you can as you may ovulate today. if not, you already have excellent coverage.

MrsCbee:  I would! 🙂 You could have already O’d, or are just about to.. Have you continued to take OPK’s since your positive? What are they like?

If your too sick to BD than skip it, but if you can manage to do it, I think its a good idea, because you could be O’ing today, if you have it in you to do it tomorrow I also would too! lol Then you’ll really be covered!

MrsCbee:  I was soo tired and am still getting over a sinus infection (its almost gone, thank God!) and had to kind of “suck it up” last night too, because I got a 98% positive OPK before bed, so we BD’d and I got a positive this morning with SMU! I’m so glad we did it.. I’m thinking we’ll probably BD tonight and tomorrow so we’re fully covered lmao.. DH didn’t know about my positive OPK’s though, which took the “pressure”off of both of us!

The bonus for us is that, though we’re both still a bit sick, we’re at the point where we want to BD because last week we were sooo sick it wasn’t even an option lol

ETA: By the looks of it we’ll be TWW buddies!

MrsCbee:  Do you know how long you typically ovulate after a positive? I get a positive and ovulate two days later, so we will do day of (O-2), day before (O-1) and day of (O). Doing that worked for us the first time (sadly miscarried a few weeks ago), but I’ll do anything to hit those three days.

MrsCbee:  Thank you so much. Yeah, temping is the only way to verify for sure. After watching your body for several cycles and paying attention to the rhythm, you can guess pretty well! That’s what I have done since I stopped temping in January to reduce pressure/stress. Good luck!

ETA: Oh…and I know what you mean about sucking it up and doing it. TTC BDing can seem like a total chore!
