When do you actually conceive?
how long does it take for the sperm to reach the egg? Hubby and I had sex on the Thursday, but according to my records I only ovulated on the Friday. I fell pregnant anyway and just wondered.

If you ovulated on Friday, the sperm would still have been there and would have fertilised the egg when it was released.
