Hi ladies... I haven't been around in a while as I am waiting for our IVF cycle which will be as soon as AF shows (still praying she doesn't) but since this is our last "natural" cycle I decided to have some fun (or torture lol) and curve the POAS addiction. I am trying the OPK as HPT deal. Of course I know any and everything about that but just wanted to see for fun. Anyways thought I would share the results for my fellow POAS addicts. I am testing with just OPKs now (8dpo) til I am late which will be about 16dpo. I have read that you can get a "darkening line progression" with OPKs if you are pregnant, so that's what I am going to test out and see so here we go! And today's is pretty close to + and yes I am certain I Oed on Nov 23 which was my birthday
Thanks for looking! And advising


I took them out to arrange progression better much easier and less pic heavy

FRIDAY 9dpo each one is somewhat darker than yesterday...still not positive though - results are also kinda interesting and make you scratch your head...and i am afraid they encourage the POAS HPT urge lol

SATURDAY ok here it is, I have NO clue what to think, unless its like they say a semi-LH surge at the end of the cycle. 10dpo today to my LPs are about 15-16 days. I have nice high temps too HIGH CP, Boobs hurt like chest pain when you need to burp lol ... ok ok so here is SATURDAYS ... input comments WELCOMED

SUNDAY
perhaps the experiment was a bit more torture than i was ready for lol so here are todays results FMU slightly darker than yesterdays as well as noon being just a hair darker...but no where near what they were and then the final one of the day is bleh ... so i dunno what to make of it... i just know i am POAS and i am happy not ready for the hpt yet...12dpo tomorrow more OPKs

MONDAY ok so here we go AGAIN this afternoons (NOON) is durn near there to + I have been posting these on countdown to pregnancy and got a lot of response that the same conclusions lead to BFPs for several girls however I am still not ready for the HPT maybe 14dpo

yay cool! hehe I have read a lot about it... and know it's NOT reliable but POAS sure is fun and there's no real disappointment LOL with OPKs especially if you know NOT to use their results to indicate pregnancy

At 16dpo I got a super super dark OPK (I knew I was pregnant already). I've never had a completely positive OPK before until now.

I'd like to see the progression.

When i was pregnant with DS, i used OPK's up until AF was due, becuase i was confused on a cycle, had lots of EWCM after what i thought was already ovulation, and started taking more OPK's to see if i maybe had not in fact o'd yet.

The tests were blaring positive from about 2DPO- 14 DPO.

At 2dpo, i was convinced that i hadnt o'd yet, but kept taking the tests and they never got lighter, even though around cd13, they went positive, and then went negative again on CD14.
I also didnt get a positive HPT until 14-15 DPO, even though my OPKs were blaring positive.

Its very weird how the body works.

good luck!

Mine went Line for ovulating, negative the next day, and then i didnt test for a day or two, and then when i tested again it was blaring positive, the test line was twice as dark as the control line, and that lasted until i was due for af, but i never got a postive HPT until 14DPO, and even then it was so so so light i almost missed it.
