What does this even mean? This is literally just biology. Does OP not understand how sexual reproduction works or am I misreading something.

No, you’re not. My message didn’t come through as clearly as I thought. (As I was not trying to be too explicitly) What I meant was: I’d try to remember the sex we had that night.

Isn’t it common?

like

I guess. Maybe I’m not as weird as I thought

Most of my friends can pinpoint the exact date. Doctors can narrow it down pretty well. I don’t think this is uncommon

The amount of sex we had while trying to get pregnant, no way could we pinpoint 😆

If you’re trying to have a baby, you’ll probably be getting your ankles knocked loose a couple of times a week so it may be hard to trace precisely

How?

Its possible, esp if doctors can tell how far along you are by the week

@OP any previous experience ?

Nope, no kids!

So this is definitely common...

My wife and I can narrow it down to a few nights. We'd been trying for a while and she was loosely tracking her ovulation period.

Yeah, so pretty much everyone I know who has kids knows the date or close to it that they got pregnant. It’s basic biology.

Why wouldnt you?

Lol my child is a product of a fun lunch break I shared with my ex-husband. So yeah, I definitely know the date. It is quite common.

I am currently on maternity leave and returning to work in about 2.5 months. I work in PA and have been thinking about a career move lately. On one hand I want to return to work with something I am familiar with to help with the transition, but the thought of going through another busy season and constant demand at work is just dreadful.. Has anyone successfully landed another job while still on maternity leave, and how was your experience?
