Deep desire

Today, my husband and I have been trying to have a baby for almost a year. I finally have a good chance to get pregnant this month, and I'm ovulating today for the first time in 3 months. My husband has the flu, he's highly contagious for the next 24 hours, and has been asleep since I got home from work. FML

Your window for getting pregnant is generally much longer than just 1 day. Typically 3-4 days beforehand, and even a day after ovulation, you can still get pregnant.

That sucks but that’s life things happen. If you have been trying for a year you both should get check by a dr to make sure there’s no problems. Otherwise just keep trying. If it turns out you can’t conceive a child then adopt.

Yes and no... If theres other issues, or you have irregular periods, usually the day of is your best bet. (Especially if you've been trying for almost a year.)

We went to the fertility clinic after a year of trying on our second child, and again after 2 years of trying for our third. Best chance is always day of ovulation. IUI's they give you a shot, and get an insemination 12 hours later with exact ovulation timing.

To add to chyiochan, if OP knows she has ovulated, then there's only a 24 hour window after ovulation to become pregnant.

If she is using BBT it tells you if you have already ovulated, not that you're going to. You then have only a 24(ish) hour window. OPK's also only give a 2 day window of when you might ovulate, and can only confirm if you have definitely ovulated after the fact.
