OPK question

I have an OPK question: if I got an obviously positive OPK at 4pm yesterday and one again at 2pm today, what is our best guess on my ovulation? I have read 12-24 hours after a positive, but I have also read 24-48 hours after a positive.

We BD'd yesterday and today (and 3 days ago). Should we BD day after tomorrow or do you think that's too late to make a difference? Should we BD tomorrow? (Making it 3 days in a row)

I'm no OPK expert. But if I were you I would keep BDing until the opk was neg. and then BD that day too! Might as well!! haha

I was afraid someone would say that. DH, for all his whining we don't DTD enough will probably NOT be on board for 3 nights in a row.

OPK was negative today so I probably did ovulate already. We'll see how tonight pans out!

I would BD the day of your + and then the day of your first - just to be sure.

When in doubt- BD more is the motto
However, both times i"ve gotten pregnant- I ONLY Bd'ed the first night of my Pos opk- even if I had 3 days of positives, the least BD'ing ever- so I was sure I was out.
So it IS possible to get pregnant if you BD the first day of a pos!! So stay positive!!

As predicted, DH bailed on BDing last night. I'm not too worried because I had two days of +OPK, so I really felt like we BD on the positive day and the day after.

Let the 2ww begin!

I finally got pregnant this cycle and we BD the day before I O'd and the day I O'd and didn't BD again and it worked! I think you're probably good. Smile Sperm can live in the body for a few days so as long as they were sperm around the time the egg released I think you're okay. We have a hard time getting it in 3 days in a row too. Lol.
