Hello mommies to be,

I wonder if any of you lucky girls conceived your baby by having sex 4 days before your ovulation. I know that in order to increase one's chances of getting pregnant, one should have sex more then once during most fertile period. However, in my case, I had unprotected sex with my hubby 4 days before ovulation only. (I'm charting, observing CM and OPK). Did any of you happen to get pregnant from having an intercourse so far in advance before your big O? Please, share!
Thank you!
P.S. I am familiar with the gender swaying method when you deliberately plan when to have sex to increase your chances of the desired gender. With a girl, you are advised to try a few days before your ovulation. Was it true for any of you?

I never count my cycle days because I have miscarried enough times to know that getting pregnant and staying pregnant are two different issues for my body. My sister did once and she has a healthy baby girl. My kids were both conceived after an extended stay in Hawaii and eating noni fruit. I don't know if it had anything to do with it, but it worked twice.

It didn't with us...we actually conceived on an ovulated day (now 18 weeks pregnant) but it also took us over 2.5 years to conceive with this baby. I also charted, made sure to BD on days before & of ovulation, & took St.John's wort, which is what helped us, I think.
But GL! Btw...wondering...what sex are y'all aiming for? :) a boy or a girl??

I just got my bfp.
Honestly....we just had sex a LOT. We had so much sex that my normally giddy husband was like.....can we stop now?!
I never really had a positive opk, nor did I observe CM. I think I O'd on the 25th. I was beginning to think that maybe I didn't ovukate at all since I had my iud removed earlier last month.
So I don't think I am much help as far as not having sex lol
Tbh I don't think I would rely on waiting so many days during your fertile period. I would rather do every other day at the very least....
GL!! Hope you get your bfp soon:)
