Don't you have a break room or a coffee station or anything with a little cup?!?! Do u have your OPKs with you!?

Don't you have something to drink during the day? Pee in that!! If nothing else, you can try to go out at lunch and get something!! Don't stress!!! I'm sure it will be fine even if you have to wait til you get home!![/b]
I work in a very small office and we have a break room but no cups! lol And what I brought to drink today is a bottle of water! Haha that wont work! I'll just go somewhere on lunch and get a cup! Ya, I brought my opk but I was retarted and didnt think about what I would pee into!

Quote:
do you have any type of plastic cup you can pee in? I wouldn't stress about not being able to test at work.... it doesnt really matter unless you have the chance to go home and BD with Jason on your lunch break. Just test as soon as you get home (but know that you'll do that and hold you pee all afternoon)

What's your BD schedule (for lack of a better word)? They say if you bed every other day from Cycle day 9 or 10 until you O you have better chances (and BD every day when you get EWCM).

Best of luck and hope you get that dark line soon!!! [/b]
Well our BD schedule is really just whenever up until like CD13 or so and then everyday when I get EWCM but im thinking I will O early this month since my opk is so close to + so we'll probably BD tonight and for the next few days. But if my opk's dont get darker anytime soon we may go back to every other day. BUT if youve read the little argument I had with Jason earlier this week you'll know that I dont want to make a schedule out of it anymore. So if he and I both want to dtd then we will I will not FREAK out about sperm quality or anything.

Don't give up hope yet!! Your urine might not have been as concentrated today as it was yesterday. I'd say keep testing twice a day and you'll probably get a definite positive in a few days! Is this your first time using them?!

edit- still can't spell...

I used them before but this was like October or September and I had no idea wth I was doing. I think I used two and they were really dark and that was it! lol I guess they detect "the surge" so maybe my surge was yesterday and I will O in 24-48hrs or whatever they say, I think I want to cancel using opk's I want it to be clear cut. Oh well, if nothing else my temps will tell me!

I HATE OPKs, but I use them anyway cause it gives me something to do...I go as soon as I get out of work (3pm)...what I did was brought a little plastic cup, and leave it on this cart that is in the bathroom...then I put the OPKs in my purse, and take the purse into the bathroom with me...you can put the cup in a plastic baggie in your purse, but that might be gross After I use it, I just put it in a separate baggie in my purse, and look at it in a few minutes...

OPKs can be so frustrating. I think I read that the colors can get light or darker because LH levels possibly fluctuate which can explain why the color can vary a little day to day. I would definately retest with more concentrated urine, you are supposed to not drink anything 4 hours before testing. HTH a little. I really hope you get a very sticky bean this time! Good luck, we're all rooting for you!

4 hours?! man that's a long time to hold your pee haha!

GL and I hope this works for you! As long as you temp you'll know when you O'd. I think the OPK made me more stressed out because I couldn't get that positive reading so it delayed my O (or made it non-existent...whichever). So, don't stress, if possible

Cycle #4 CD13

I am starting to get my O pains that I get every month. Their very sporadic though sometimes I get them the day I O sometimes 1 day before sometimes 2 days before. So we'll see! At least im excited to have some sort of sign that I may be o'ing soon. Im really not likeing opk's, I dont know why I just dont. I feel like i'll never get a + but im gonna keep at it. I just hope I catch that surge or else it will just be a guessing game on when to start bd'ing every day instead of every other day!


On a side note: We are leaving for our Florida vacation in 11 days!!!!!

The unfortunate thing about OPKS is that you either love 'em or hate 'em I happen to love them But I would say don't give up hope.. I've tested for 9 days straight with no positive reading and then finally got one!! So- there's still plently of time!! Nevertheless YAYYYYY for O pains!!! I'm so glad your body is recovering quickly and I really hope that you're able to get a beautiful BFP soon!!!!! Double yay for the trip! That's so exciting!!

If you DTD last night, and O'd this morning, I'd say you're in great shape! Especially since you had EWCM...those spermies were hangin out waiting for that egg!
