This is the hell I've dealt with this cycle. My opk's are usually pretty cut and dried.. but this is what I faced when I purchased a new brand.


CD 11 - dollar tree brand.



CD 12 (bottom test)



CD 13 - same urine



CD 13 - PM test, same urine for all 3 tests.



CD 13 - late PM test



CD 14 - AM test (not fmu)




CD 14 - PM test - same urine



CD 15 - AM test (not fmu)



CD 16 - Am test (not fmu)



CD 17 - Am test (not fmu)

Wow thats crazy, maybe you had an anovulatory cycle or something or could be that you're ovulating really late due to stress or somthing going on.

There's absolutely nothing stressing me out (except those dang tests LOL). This has been one of the easiest cycles I've had since coming off the pill (with last cycle probably being the physically hardest). I don't doubt I've ovulated, or am ovulating... I doubt those stupid tests.

When you dip 3 tests together into a cup of pee, you'd expect them to look some what similar, not look almost positive, not positive, and "is there a line there or not". I'm glad I only bought 25 of them (and have used almost all of them).

We weren't supposed to get to TTC this cycle, DH was supposed to go back to work, but that's been delayed. I don't care what the opk's are saying, I'm more annoyed that they just seem faulty than anything. We've covered our bases.. and I have a saliva progesterone test to do on Monday, which should tell me if I O'd. I miss my wondfos

Other than that.. we will see if the Witch Shows on the 9th.

They do seem faulty!!!! I don't think there is anyway to interpret them and I don't think they say anything about your ovulation. . .

Too bad you cant take them back. Can you go back to your old brand? Sorry these tests were so frustrating!!!!

OPK's

I cant believ the pic of those taken with the same pee! Thats ridiculous!

At least you know uv got your bases covered so that side of things isnt an issue, I vote you ditch the rest and dont bother using them, not worth the hassle

I know right?

I'll probably take the rest just because I don't want them kicking around next cycle (IF there is one ).. at this point they are more for amusement than anything else.


I'm on a cocktail of supplements right now, including some I haven't taken before... plus a new prenatal.. so my body is probably bouncing off the wall.

I didn't bother taking one this morning... couldn't be bothered. I KNOW I O'd... my body is happily putting my BB's through the usual wringer... I'm just not 100% sure when. LOL

lol my boobs feel like a battleground every cycle. I have fibrous tissue (lumpy) which makes them apt to hurting. When I had my loss in 2005 I had to wear a bra in the shower... they were THAT sore. I do not look forward to that part of pregnancy, but I will welcome the rest!! lol

This was last night:



this was earlier. So we are most definitely looking negative now.



(there are two here because the bottom test got dropped into the cup of pee. LOL. so it's over saturated)

my BB's are starting to feel tender.. but my nipples hurt like a bugger!
