I'm only on CD8, have normal 29 day cycles and usually have all the symptoms of Oing around the middle of the cycle. I started taking OPKs on CD6 and they seem pretty dark from the get go. I'm worried that there is something wrong with me, but maybe I just O earlier than I thought and have changed since the last time I TTC.

I just read somewhere not to take an OPK until at least 2 pm and hold off the liquids for 2 hours. I will wait a few hours and take another test. This is annoying. I've never worried about becoming pregnant before. Never temped or anything. 2 surprise babies and 2 that I pretty much went by CM only and got pregnant easily. Maybe I should do that, but I'm worried that I'm now 35 and my body might not work like it used to. The VR is scheduled for tomorrow and we will start actively trying in February. Maybe we will have an oopsy in January and have the Cheri22 reading come true for a September baby. I'd be due in October, but always go a couple weeks early.

I'm no good at reading them. I use the digital ones and I'm thinking about not doing that anymore so as to not stress and try to go with the flow a little more. I wanted to pipe in a wish you Good luck though!

You should take up temping too since that's the only way to really confirm if/when you ovulated.

I just started temping too. Started this cycle.

My test from this afternoon was even darker. Maybe I'll ovulate in the next 2-3 days which could put me at cd11 or 12. Won't be that far off. Just good to know for when we are really trying.
