It's possible, so...: Fertile couples having sex should be sure to be married, settled down, and with stable jobs that provide good health insurance because babies have many doctor visits the first 2 years. There are many things to do, and lots of demands in raising kids. An egg lives for about a day after ovulation (women do not know which hour the egg comes out). Sperm can get there early and wait a few days for egg.
