@ilovestripes:  I did! I BD every other day in the 5 day fertile window and then again on my O day. I just got my BFP this wkend! Btw I think this post fits great in the TTC boards.

@ilovestripes:  LOL – your hubby.  That’s funny.  Men ARE weird.  Thanks for the congrats!  I am totally freaked out and overwhelmed.  Our wedding is in 3 weeks (which we’ve been planning for two years!) and I just want it to be here already.  I’m freaked out about being sick, not fitting in my dress, all sorts of things!

I had morning sickness (all day long nausea actually, no vomiting) LITERALLY about a week after ovulation.  I knew I was pregnant before I even tested.  I was nauseous, exhausted, and just felt…OFF.  I also experiences dizziness/light headedness for several weeks.  I started getting the sore boobs later than the average, around 5 weeks, but I hear a lot of women say that’s the first thing they felt.  I also had CRAMPs.  Period like cramps from about the time I would have gotten my period to about 7 weeks.  They sucked, and were a bit scary.

Just remember, everybody is different.  What one person feels, another person wont!  Just relax and enjoy your TWW!  (BTW, I got my BFP three days before my missed period, so start testing early!)

for what it’s worth, we BD’ed on a Friday and Sunday and I O’d on a Tuesday – and now I’m 6 weeks along.

I have the opposite story as some of the previous posts. The only month we got pregnant out of five trying so far was the month we had sex on the day of ovulation (ended in miscarriage). The other four months we missed the actual day of ovulation but did BD both of the two days before (grr) and no go. I dunno if my hubby’s swimmers don’t live very long or maybe I have a sperm killing vagina, or maybe it’s just coincidence.

Also, this is the place that I would post this thread, and not in the pregnancy thread. Though, it would be answered in the pregnancy thread, I think that’s more for ladies that have already gotten a positive test and are in the 9 months.

You are in the TWW after ovulation, regardless of if you BD’ed on the day of ovulation or a few days before =) Obviously if you like didn’t have sex at all I wouldn’t really call it a TWW, but generally after O is the TWW, even if it’s not two weeks before you start your period.

Yay for the thermal shift and welcome and good luck!

PS, this is my anon TTC account as well =) I don’t wanna be talking about baby making on an account that people could recognize me!

I conceived 3 days before ovulation.  I didn’t think it would happen because I didn’t even have any cervical mucus that day, but it showed up the next day.  I tested a week after I ovulated and got a negative, then the very next day I woke up feeling like I’d been run over by a truck and just KNEW I was pregnant!  My boobs always get tender after ovulation and are back to normal a couple days before my period, but that time it just kept going.  I also started getting period-like cramps a few days before my period would have started.

I conceived the month we only BD’d 5 days before ovulation. I totally wasn’t expecting to get pregnant that month– and voila, I conceived a baby girl (which is more likely to happen (by some theories) if you have sex 3-5 days before O rather than the day of O).

@urchin:  5 days, wow!

With my first pregnancy (ended in M/C), we had sex a few times from 6 days before until 3 days before, and then DH had to leave town…I don’t know what day did it, but it was at least 3 days out. 

For a variety of reasons, this time I got pregnant we only had sex one time, two days before ovulation…I’m now 36 weeks pregnant.

@Mrs Sarah McK:  Yah, I told DH he had super sperm (he had just started taking vitamins the month before, so we blamed them, lol). Other months we had sex right before ovulation, day of ovulation and nothing happened.

Then we had unprotected sex once my entire cycle, 5 days before ovulation and I got pregnant. It was shocking! lol I totally thought I was out that month!

According to research i’ve read, sex 2 days before Ovulation is the BEST day to get pregnant, followed by 1 day before and the day of (other studies just say that ‘the few days before or at ovulation are the best, without picking out a specific day). 3 days or more before is certainly possible, but not highly likely.

Feel free to join us on the July POAS board if you’d like company in your TWW 🙂
