I been a positive opk means you will ovulate in the next 24-48 hrs so I think tomorrow night you will still be in the right window!

Don't forget that your egg lives for 24 hours (although I believe it has to be fertilised within 12 hours) so you have a bit of extra time on top.

I got pregnant with dd by dtd two days before the positive opk . . . .

Sperm isn't capable of fertilising an egg until it's been inside you for about 10 hours, so you need to take that into account.

It's ideal to DTD prior to OV if you can as then you've sperm waiting for the egg.

Thanks for taking the time to reply smile

I did dtd on Thursday, got my positive OPK today at 11ish am, so will I be covered? Because I guess the egg hasn't been released yet? Or has it?

I have done another 2 OPKs since at 3pm & 7pm, both again super super positive... Should I keep testing tomorrow in the hopes that I have not yet released the egg?

Ergh, what a ballache envy

Thursday is very good timing. Good luck!
