According to the Shettles method, DTD 3 days pre-O is perfect girl timing. So - lots of hope!

I think boy timing is closer to O day.

OP - Yes, I believe the timing could have been right. FX for you!!

miranda was 4 days before

Jake was the day of

this one was 5 days before.

Yeah, I'd say it's possible. lol And timing is a big fat liar. This one should be a girl if timing was a true thing. There's more to it than timing.

Re: How close to ovulation did you DTD?

When TTC, we DTD every other day. Since we have all boys, I'm assuming the "lucky" day was either the same day I ovulated, or close to it.

With the right conditions, sperm can live in your body for up to 5 days. My doctor told me that most people have a six-day window of fertility - the five days before ovulation, and 24 hours afer. That depends on a range of factors, though... the quality/quantity of your CM, sperm mobility, etc etc.

I would say within 3 days of your O date has a very good chance of being "lucky" .
