This might sound crazy, especially since i already have 2 kids. Well i am sort of trying for my third, my LMP was december 17th and lasted its normal 7 days. According to the lovely world of science, i should of ovulated 2 weeks after i started my last period. Which means i should of ovulated yesterday. Well, i was babysitting my bff's daughter all day yesterday and all day today so me and hubby weren't able to bd, but we have bded every other day since my last period ended. Now here is the silly question, even though we didn't make love on the exact day i ovulated but every other day up until then, can we still catch the egg? I would love to hear similar stories with happy endings just for reassurance.

 yea you should be able to still :) sperm can live for 5 days inside!

i am also ttc our 3rd and i ovulated on the 21st.....we dtd on the 20,21,22. i'm pretty sure you can conceive a few days before and a few days after the O.

 I use MMC as well but it requires you to know your LP as well as the length of your cycle days so for O calculators I usually use WebMD or Fertility Friend because I have no clue what my LP is. My cycle lengths vary as well from 31-33 days so for me AF could be due between tomorrow and Saturday.
