Ovulation / Baby Dance question ???

Hi,

I have a question for you all. I know that days 9 to 17 are generally the best times to do the BD when trying to conceive. This month, I've tried using one of those Ovulation Predictor Kits. When it comes up "positive," the instructions say that you'll most likely ovulate 24 to 48 AFTER you've gotten a "positive" and that that's the best time for conception. If yo do the BD the night before you get a positive, could you conceive then as well? (I read somewhere that it can be good to have the sperm waiting for the egg, but have no idea if that's true--not sure it could even live that long while waiting.) Or is your best chance of conceiving AFTER you get the "positive." Thanks to all who can shed some light on this for me!

Lois,


In good CM, sperm can live you to 5 days.
