Do you know what cycle day you conceived on?

I am on cycle 3 of ttc properly, and just wondering what CD people think their beans were conceived on. I know obviously not everyone knows. I have been religiously following the CM but a colleague conceived on CD8 (only BD-ing that month) and OV-ed (according to EWCM) on CD 15. Anyone else had similar? I think I OV-ed on CD 16 this month but unfortunately we didn't manage it after CD12. So am not optimistic.... I would love to hear stories of conception 4-5 days before OV, if anyone managed it!

we conceived on day 10. not sure when i Oved though.

Um. Don't know all the jargon, but ds was definately conceived on the 10th day of my 27 day cycle (with day 1 being the day my period started) - DH worked away most of the time, so easy to be accurate...

You can know what day you had sex leading to conception, but conception can happen on a different day (eg egg released later while sperm still around, sperm take a while to get to egg, etc)

between CD48 and CD50 this time around. No idea about DS. Probably another late ov no doubt though

Yeah, I kind of meant what day did you have sex on which resulted in pg - sorry. Just trying to keep optimistic that CD12 might be possible.... fingers crossed! ANyone else?

CaptainKarvol Wed 27-Aug-08 13:18:16

Sorry, that was a bit off the point (have read op properly now).

I thought I'd done the deed too early the month I conceived. I was quite cross with DH for having a rotten cold as we'd been trying for over a year and I was getting frantic. It would have been at least 3 days before I think I ovulated. Maybe it will be a girl? Anyone doing Shettles for sex selection might be able to tell you some early day conception stories!

What is CD? And EWCM?

FruitynNutty Wed 27-Aug-08 13:19:36

Forgot to say, that was about 3-4 days before ovulation. So I'm banking on this one being a girl smile

CaptainKarvol Wed 27-Aug-08 13:24:47

FallenMadonna - cycle day and egg-white cervical mucous. The stuff that is clear and stretchy and indicates fertility (well, you did askgrin)

clairemagnolia Wed 27-Aug-08 13:25:26

CD = cycle day
EWCM = egg white cervical mucus


TheFallenMadonna Wed 27-Aug-08 13:28:02

And when does the cycle day start from (thinking of Fruity's CD50)?

clairemagnolia Wed 27-Aug-08 13:28:49

Day 1 is the first day of your period.

FruitynNutty Wed 27-Aug-08 13:30:52

Cycle day 1 is the 1st day of your period

TheFallenMadonna Wed 27-Aug-08 13:32:39

Thank you!

And fingers crossed for you grin

I'm just weird, long pcos cycles angry I think the norm is anywhere between 25-35 days. You are most likely to ovulate very roughly up to 14/15 days before AF. I think Sperm can survive approximately up to 5 days so you could fall pregnant if you BD 5 days before ovulation

FruitynNutty Wed 27-Aug-08 13:35:49

Oh, good luck BTW!

i ovulated day 36 of my cycle conceived day 30 or 33

itsallsoscary Wed 27-Aug-08 13:57:41

Thanks everyone - is such an emotional time!

islandlassie Wed 27-Aug-08 14:01:32

well we didn't manage to have sex before the 18th day but i thought i had already OV a few days earlier. I'm surprised we managed to concieve to be honest. It was only our first month! (You can imagine that all i hear from hubby now is about his 'superspunk'.....yes dear......hmm)

Good luck!

I had sex on CD 17 of a 30 day cycle, so some time around there.

i was suprised that we caught egg and sperm together 2 only took 3 months

MatBackFack Wed 27-Aug-08 15:54:03

Both mine I ov CD16 and 17 (i.e that's when the ov symbol came on on Persona) and both the relavent deed was on CD16, both boys.

MatBackFack Wed 27-Aug-08 15:55:33

oh and I always get the ov signs coming up 15/16 or 16/17 although cycle varies between 27-31, if that helps at all. I am sure first time took as a while as we weren't continuing far enough to 17.
