Trying to conceive

I know I only have a few days to wait but I just wanted to ask anyways
My bf and I have been trying for 13 months.. but this month was the first time I notcied ewcm for 2days in a row.. we bed the first day I saw it and then ovulated 2 days later.
Is this a good thing?
I was so excited about having ewcm yay!

It supposedly helps the sperm get to where they need to be. I guess it's kinda like sperm friendly lol. GL X

It is a good sign that your body is ready and doing what it needs to.
I think once you ovulate you have just 24 hours to fertilise the egg (or for egg to meet sperm as they say) and sperm can survive generally for 2-4 days. Assuming day 1 you bd and then on day 3 you ovulated that sperm could still technically be 'good' to meet your egg on day 3 to 4 (and there's a chance for a little longer too).
It sounds like exactly the right time to me.
To be really sure you can bd every other day. When I fell pregnant with my son we were adopting the whole 'sperm meets egg' plan (google it) and so we started to bd every other day from ewcm until 2 days after ovulation (just in case). Tiring work!
Do let us know what happens in 2 weeks
