  • i think it would be ok since sperm can live for up to three days so hopefully there is a good enough supply in there lol

  • It's actually a good idea to have sex right BEFORE you ovulate because your cervical fluid is usually the best then. That means the sperm has a good environment to live in and it is easier for it to get to your egg just as you ovulate. Has your hubby ever had his sperm count tested? Because usually it's good to wait a few days to build up some sperm so you have a better chance when the time comes. If he has a high sperm count it might not matter, but if it's low you want to try to abstain a couple days before you ovulate. And planning when to have sex does increase your chances! Some of us aren't lucky enough to have it "just happen" When you look at the biology of it all, it always amazes me that anyone is able to get pregnant without trying! I always thought "baby making " sex was really fun and special!
