Does my chart match my positive OPK I got this afternoon?

I'm by no means a chart reading expert, and I've only used OPKs for a few cycles, so here's my thoughts . . . it looks about right, you are in the middle of a fertile patch of CM and you've received a positive OPK. Some ladies have O'd on the day they get their positive, and I have O'd the following day or 2 days after receiving my 1st positive OPK, so yo should espect to O anytime from CD14-CD16. We should know more once those temps go up & stay up and you'll get those CH's. I hope you've been able to get some BDing in, and grab your DH today too to cover all the bases. I grabbed mine again last night, as I'm still waiting to O myself.

Good luck, and it looks like there's a bunch of us getting ready to hit the 2WW wait together. Hopefully between all of us, we can keep that old witch far far away!!!

Hallie - your chart is looking a lot better than mine. My temps are all over the place this month. I got my 1st +opk yesterday, but I'm out of tests. Gotta go get some more today...lol

I only had two OPK's left this cycle and I used the last one yesterday. I was really surprised when I saw the smiley face instead of an empty circle! I also have just started using a fertility monitor this month and this morning it gave me a peak reading. But my temp dropped a bit this morning? I am so new to this that it is still a mystery to me!

Hallie-I agree with Becky. She has more experience with OPKs than I do, but your chart looks good. You are right in the middle of a fertile time, so keep on BDing in case it takes a couple of days to O. Also, a slight temperature dip before your shift (you'll know if you shift in a day or two) can sometimes happen just before ovulation. It doesn't always happen, so I wouldn't use it to predict ovulation, but it can be a possible explanation for your dip. These things always make more sense after the fact. Good luck! I can't wait to join you in the 2ww -we're both on CD15!

Hallie, I've got to agree with everyone else. I've never gotten a positive OPK, but have had the thermal shift. Keep BDing to cover your bases and hopefully you'll join me and it looks like several others in the 2ww in a few days.
