In brief: Yes and no

You have to be ovulating in order to get pregnant.
But, you can have sex before the day of ovulation that could lead to pregnancy. The best time to conceive is to have intercourse the day of ovulation but sperm can live in good cervical mucus for 3-5 days. So, if you have unprotected intercourse on saturday sperm could survive until ovulation on tuesday.
