27th is morelikey: If one assumes you have a28to30 day cycle ,the n the 27th is more likely.If however you have a 21day cycle ,then ths8th is more likely.remember ,we don't know exactly when ovulation takes place.We do know that it happens 14 days before the next menstrual cycle.

Probably 27th: If the first day of your May period was May 16th, then if your cycles are regular you probably ovulated 14 days later on May 30th. However it is not definite as there are a lot of variabilities. Sperm can live in the female genital tract for up to 5 days.

Around May 30: Around May 30 if you have regular 28 day cycles. Have you had an ultrasound yet? Does it match with your due date from your last menstrual period? Good Luck!
