Hi there and welcome.  No. You can't get pregnant after you ovulate (ovulation is 24 to 48 hours and once it is over, it's over).  You may have the day you ovulated confused is probably more likely the culprit.  Lots of luck to you.

Well, you can get pregnant at any time in your cycle.  And most women don't ovulate on a completely even schedule.  Due dates are also guesses.  Not very many babies are born exactly on their due dates, so only two days early is actually pretty good timing.

I think we already did our best to answer this in another forum.  Ask your doctor if you have any more questions about ovulation times, or get a paternity test.
