I dont know what is going on. I got an almost possitive OPK last night and this morning but no EWCM, no cramps, and only a little creamy CM. Now I am getting only a very faint line on the OPK. Please someone tell me that my O is just around the corner and this wasnt all!
the opk just tells you that you will O with in the next 12-36 hours,
after it is positive.. so if your test was positive bd like crazy for
the next three days, you may have missed your surge to get
a full positive.. keep testing while you bd, to see if you do surge tho.
I wish I had an answer but still kinda confused on opks...I've had darker ones at noon the tried again at 8 just to make sure and it was lighter...I thought maybe my urine was more wstered down on second one but we will see what it says today lol
Thank you sooo much ladies, you have made me feel a million times better! I am planning to do some serious BDing lol, i dont know what I would do without you ladies, you really bring sanity back to my ttc world
Ps. Today is my bday so everything crossed that it is a lucky month!!
Nel - If it had gotten a full positive I wouldnt have a question, my questioning came when it never got a strong positive and then dropped down to clear negative. Wasnt sure if i had geared up to O but not actually done so.
I think I may have had a faulty test though. I just tested again and it is just shy of positive so getting darker
I know that my tests get darker then lighter a few times before I get a true positive. I don't usually O till like CD 15-20. So that is a possibility. Or you missed your surge.
But like Tigg said, BD like crazy for the next few days and keep testing because you never know.
Fxd this is your cycle girl!!
And Happy Birthday
Nel- the purpose of the tests is to let you know ovulation is coming. They aren't a sure fire way to know you are ovulating because you can have a positive and not O. But using OPK's you can see the positive and know its time to get down to really BDing everyday for the next few days. Then if you are temping and you see a temp dip with a rise shortly after a positive OPK then you can confirm ovulation. OPK are basically a warning sign for most. For me, I get a positive then some massive O pains so that's how I confirm ovulation.
TTC my first! - 26th cycle.
**Thanks Lucy! Love my V-Day Blinkie**

Woohoo!! I was having issues yesterday, O was predicted yesterday but I wasn't noticing any symptoms at all so I bought OPK and totally negative yesterday, so I figured either it already passed or it was still a ways off. Tested again today and definitely darker, then EWCM this afternoon!! I think my O will be tomorrow-Early Thursday sometime. I think I'll re-test OPK in the morning or maybe tonight so I don't miss the surge lol.
