When will I get the CH oh my ff, I have been religiously doing my temperature, and have charted more this month then I have the whole time we have been ttc. So I have been doing ovulation sticks everyday, for a few days 3 times a day. Does the ovulation sticks not tell you when you ovulate? Do they just register the LH surge. I don't have any other real symptoms of ovulation.. Or maybe I do and I'm just not aware.

OPK only detect the surge prior to OV.. So you could ov 12hrs to 3 days later..
But when you chart along with it it will help to see these as the temp drops one
day and shoots up the next..

I would keep BDing at least every other day and keep temping and doing OPK
Till you get your positive.. (You can always post a pic every day if you are unsure
of its darkness.. ) and keep BD'ing for a few days after you see the temp rise on FF... Check out my chart if you want..

It usually drops just before O, it drops and then 12-24 hours later you O, and your temp jumps back up.... 3 higher temps after the drop and you get cross hairs..
Mine happened to be On the same day...

haha.. by not knowing when they are fertile and it is much easier to get PG
when you are not thinking about it.. I am by no means an expert here, I just started
charting, but I have been researching this for my own sanity.. So if I can help you,
YAY for learning!!

I understand what you are going through, I am also cd 18 and I did get my Ch on FF but still have yet to get a + opk I tested this morning there was a line there but not dark enough to say it was +, so I have tested 2 other times today and no line, I am sooo confused not sure if I missed my surge or what, but we are continuing to Bdance just to be sure.TTC can be exhausting lol but I have no doubt it will be all worth it in the end. I hope you get your Ch on FF and a +opk.

You will almost always have 2 lines on an OPK. Thats not how you decipher positive or negative. A positive OPK is when the control line is as dark or darker than the test line. Hope this helps a little. It seems that you are almost there!!

Some women always have 2 lines on the OPK's (I don't all the time). From my very limited experience using them I have somewhat of a line before I ovulate but nothing after I do. The control line needs to be as dark or darker than the test line then you will know when you have your surge.

I think the one you posted in the first pic last strip looked like an almost positive to me and you could have missed your actual surge as the new ones you posted look lighter to me. I think that would be CD 18 for you if I am reading it correctly.

This whole process is just that a process. Hang in there. You will get the hang of it!
