The thing is, you really never know at what precise time you’ll ovulate so it’s impossible to tell. Yes, it is possible to ovulate in the morning, it die by 12 hours later, and you miss the chance by only hitting O late at night. I don’t think it’s really worth overthinking it on this level. Especially since you never truly know if you’re oing until later. 

But I think you might have a mis-print here. You’re not close to ovulation on O-3 than you are on O day. Honestly, in a perfect world, you’d it O-3, O-2, O-1, O and O+1 just for good measure. If you can’t do all that I’d try for at least O-2 and O-1.

@mysterybee123:  Oh. Sure. But again, you don’t really know if it matters. Don’t think too hard! As Nike would say, “Just do it!” haha.

Don’t feel bad. I’m a total compulsive planner controll freak. i know it’s easier said than done.

@mysterybee123:  I don’t have an answer for you, but I was wondering the same thing this past fertile window.

I was under the impression you wanted the sperm waiting for the egg (see “The Great Sperm Race” on YouTube), so BDing BEFORE O is good. The sperm can hang out for 1-5 days and the egg can live for up to 24 hours (though most don’t live that long).
Hope that helps!

I was trying to ask the same kind of question a couple of days ago.  I understand the whole “Just do it and don’t think about it” answers, but unfortunately I don’t always see Darling Husband all day.  I might not see him until later on O day.  I think PP is right that you want to do it before the O day.  But in that case yeah, I would think that doing it later in the day on O-3 would be better than early in the day?  Gah I just don’t know.
