First time TTC

Me (31) and my husband (36) are TTC for the first time as of this month. I had my copper IUD removed a couple of weeks ago. We work entirely different schedules so rarely see each other. As you can imagine, it is hard to find the time to TTC! We have managed to find some 4-5 days before ovulation, so my question is - do we have a chance of getting pregnant this way or does it have to be the day before/on the day of OV that we try?

Hey lovely! Me and my hubby are in the same boat ttc! .. I downloaded an app called 'Flo' to track my cycle etc and it says that there is a chance of getting pregnant 4 days before ovulation .. sperm can apparently survive up to 4 days! (Wow!) .. it's also ment to be good to have sperm there waiting for your egg to be released so fingers crossed!! Xx
