Ovulating and Husband Leaving - What to do?? Help

Hopeful - January 27

My husband and I have been trying for 5 months. We were just going with “it” for the first two months, then when nothing happened I began to buy the ovulation kits and started taking my temperature. During that time my Cycle went from 32 days (which is normal for me) to 40 days for two cycles! I think I was pregnant one of those times but that’s another story. I stopped 'stressing out' and stopped testing so much. I knew with my regular cycle I should start testing about day 16. So this cycle I did, I started to notice the ovulation lines getting darker. I’m due to Ovulate in the next 24 hours! (Day 18) The good news is we have made love the last three days, including this morning. The BAD news is…My husband is leaving for a funeral (out of town) at 3pm today(1/27). He is scheduled to leave from work. He won’t be back until 5 p.m. tomorrow(1/28). I had this whole thing planned out, we were going to have sex every 12 hours during this time. Then…Life happens…I have tried to see if he will come home at lunch today, so we can make love to me before he leaves. He is not sure it’s possible. I guess my questions are 1. Should I be concerned since we did have sex this morning? Is there anything I should or can do? (aside from traveling with him)? Am I making too much out of it?

They say sperm can live for 3 days in your body, some studies show 5 days. You could still get pregnant!!! They also say it is better to have sex before you ovulate. So there is still a good chance. Good luck.

Well hopeful......after three days of sex prior to ovulation...there should be enough sperm there to get the job done. Don't stress it lessens the chances. Good luck!

you should definitely be ok. although, they do say that when you are ttc to bd every other day. this way it gives the man time to build up the sperm count count again.
