As I'm over thinking it, getting stressed and cross with DH.

We have been DTD every other day this cycle from day 8, yesterday morning (Sat) day 16 of my cycle I got a smiley face on my OS. However DH was hungover and didn't feel 'up' for the job. Que a heated discussion about TTC#2 and him getting pissed and spending Saturday morning throwing up. This isn't like him at all, he's not even a big drinker, hence why he was feeling so rough.

Will try again later today. Annoyingly we have guest staying so this morning was another no go.

Do you think we've missed it for this month again hmm

I'm very disappointed and angry with DH.

remember that sperm can live inside for up to 7 days so u might be lucky!

Sperm can live for up to a week and the egg lasts aupto 24 hrs. Good luck for this month.

I believe (from my years and years of trying to conceive) that you need the sperm in the uterus and Fallopian tubes BEFORE ovulation for it to work IYSWIM. So you are probably fine - am guessing the ovulation kit uses the luteal surge to give you the smiley face.

I hope he makes up for it later? It could have been an early result?
