? about my chart and my opks - I'm a newbie at charting...
 
Okay, so this is my first cycle charting with my saliva and I have used two opks the last two days. One on CD17 at night and one on CD18 in the morning. Can you look at the photos below and let me know what you think as well as my chart. I don't know how to read these. the CD18 am opk was from this morning. Am I fertile now? Will I be ovulating soon?

It looks like my opk from today was positive but the test line was darker than the control line. Is the test defective? They were both from the same lot.

I am going to start temping vaginally with my next cycle and using opks everyday I am not bleeding so I can get more accurate information.

My cycle has been about 30 days long the last 2-3 months but it seems like it might be a little longer than that this time. I wonder if my poor eating habits this month has contributed to that? I stopped juicing and have been drinking more soda and coffee as well as sugary foods. I love them - it's so hard to stop :)

Anyway, any insight into my chart/opks is greatly appreciated. My chart is so wonky!

Thanks! Mindy

If the test line is as dark or darker than the control line then the test is positive.

From your chart looks like you going to o very very soon.

Normal is 12 to 24 hours after you notice surge. Which looks on your chart to be late tonight or tomorrow. X

Thanks soooo much! I'm just curious and trying to be hypersensitive to my bodies cues right now so when we do TTC in Sept or Oct I know my patterns and signs and of course I will hopefully know by then how to read my chart, lol :)

THANKS!!!

When I got my super strong positive I O'd that same day. Your temps will tell you though. The next morning my temp had jumped so I knew I had O'd. Good luck!!

I was told and women ovulate after their temp rise which is why doctors don't use temperature charting too much.

So many charts you see bd after the temp rise and it's a pregnancy chart. I love stalking the chart gallery.
