  • Instead of trying to plan out the medical part of it, just focus on loving him. You can get pregnant wether or not you are following your ovulation. Just have fun, make love and don't look at it as a necessity. You will have far greater chance of concieving while just enjoying yourself. Just make it part of your daily ritual. :-)

  • Have sex like rabbits before he leaves and there is a really good chance you will be. OTher then that, there is no way to absolutely sure.

    As far as your question please try Web MD I am sure it will be a more precise answer.

  • If you had your LH surge on the 2nd, you probably didn't ovulate until the 3rd. The surge is what triggers your ovulation within about 24 hours of the positive test. The good news is that your actual fertility window is very short, so it is good to have his semen in you and waiting for your egg, and you might have gotten the job done! If not, try the last couple days he is home...that may be cutting it too close though.
