Ugh. I am starting to get really annoyed by DH's job.

If I were you, I'd take a night or two off in between. Maybe try every other night? BD on 2 days before on, skip 1 day before O, and BD on day of O. Or, surprise him in the morning after a night off.

Forgot to add something... If you think you can only get some once, I'd go for the day before O. He sounds to tired to do it tonight. Plenty of babies are conceived as "one hit wonders" so don't feel too stressed about getting it in every night.

I totally agree with bankers, if you can only get in one BD, it's best to make it the day before O. I was just reading on fertilityfriend the other day that before the sperm start making the journey to your egg, they have to shed some kind of skin, which can take up to several hours. So it is best to have sex before O, so those little swimmers have time to do there thing, get up there, and be ready and waiting for the egg.

Thanks for the advice, girls. We were up till 2 am working on this report for his work so we were both exhausted when we finally crawled into bed so no bd. Which is just as well b/c this morning my opk is STILL negative, so close but not quite there. I was so sure it'd be positive this morning, but I may take another opk tonight if I can. But I'm not sure it really matters since DH hinted this morning he was in the mood so we'll prob bd anyway tonight. As far as I know he doesn't know I'm about to ovulate, but he usually knows even when I don't know how he can,lol. So tonight might still be 2 days before O. I wish I got a positive opk already, ha. Maybe we can pull off two nights in a row, tonight and tomorrow. I think the best time is the day before O too so hopefully we can bd tomorrow night...
