BD'd day before ovulation. Is that enough?
I ovulated on Thursday and BD'd Wed night and Tuesday night (1 day and 2 days before O). I thought this would be enough, but I'm googling and am finding many things that say day before ovulation BD'ing isn't enough. I couldn't BD on my actual ovulation day because DH was working late. Any thoughts on this?
On first round of Clomid and really wanted this to be our month. Now, I'm not too confident.
Thanks, Heather

It's actually better to BD before ovulation than at the exact time it happens, because you want the little swimmers to already be there, ready for the egg to pop :-) Sperm can live in fertile cervical mucus for up to 5 days in ideal conditions, but probably more like 2-3 days under normal conditions. So I think you have a very good shot this month! Best of luck!

I'd say you definitely have a shot.  As Heather said, its actually better to BD the day before.  I just got my BFP today (yay!) and we BD'ed two days before O, one day before O, and day of O, but not after and like I said, BFP!  I think it was actually the day before one that did the job, but then again what do I know :)
