That looks positive to me.  Just remember that you will likely ovulate within 24-36 hours of your peak OPK+, so keep DTD for several days after your last positive.  Also keep in mind that OPK's cannot confirm ovulation, just that your body is gearing up to O.  Only temping will confirm O for you.

thanks for the info smile.gif didn't know ovulation could happen when the test is negative after a positive.

CD14 looks darker than the previous two.  So unless you get a darker or equally dark line tomorrow this may be your peak day.  Keep DTD everyday if you can for several more days b/c keep in mind that your peak OPK day is NOT necessarily your peak fertile day.  That is usually 1-2 days after your peak OPK+.

*hoping for some BFN OPK's CD 16-17 smile.gif, then i'll start the 2WW on Sunday orngbiggrin.gif, a little tempted to get a 7 pack of OPK's to reconfirm (due to +OPK on CD21 last month).

CD16 looks negative to me!  So assume you are ovulating sometime today or tomorrow!  Get on that BDing!!

*took CD16 40 minutes earlier today because I have been really thirsty the past 12 hours, which equals frequent trips to the bathroom. I have 1 OPK left for tomorrow, then I will start the 2WW on Sunday, my birthday orngbiggrin.gif

*CD19

 

I'm a little upset today, I had EWCM on CD 17-18 w/ -OPKS, today looks like a positive and our timing wasn't the best, i'm a little bummed. We're still going to try, but I'm not that hopeful anymore.

Yeah, that looks positive to me.  This is where temping is very helpful b/c you don't know if you did O with that first surge or not.  This could be a second surge b/c O did not succeed previously.  Or this could be a random positive as sometimes happens with OPK's.  Whatever the cause, you don't know, so get on the BDing again!  Remember, the day of the positive is likely the day prior to ovulation so you have got time to catch O-1, O, and O+1 just fine if O hasn't already happened.

My cycles are 34 days, ovulated on CD21 (w/EWCM) and my LP was 14 days last cycle, I finally stopped seeing dark lines CD26/27. I've considered the thought that I O on CD14 (like we previously thought), which would make me 8DPO... which I doubt... or maybe CD11, since I didn't test that day and had a -OPK on CD10.. still doubt it though. 

 

This cycle I got EWCM on CD17-18 w/+OPK on CD 19, now I have WCM and CCM (which is normal for me)

So right now I'm just going to assume CD20 was O day and compare the next couple days.

CD23 looks lighter than yesterday, but looking at the picture, it kinda looks positive... hoping for a negative soon.

 

... it's interesting that each day the control and test line have similar coloring.

And here's the thing... you may have ovulated days ago and you're just one of these people that OPK's don't work for. But you don't know, so just keep DTD!

Never heard of that, but definitely might be a possibility considering my hormones are obviously high. I wasn't planning on using them next cycle, so we are just sticking to DTD smile.gif
