And tell me if these are possibly ++? These are the ones that half the line looked as dark as the control line when read within the time limit. Especially the ones on the bottom. Now that it's been 24 hours since drying the control line looks a tad darker now but within the limits they were very similar its just that only half the test line was dark. Thanks.

Lauren thanks. Maybe I should keep using what I have left and hopefully it will get darker but so far today they are even lighter than that. I think I only have about 3 or 4 tests left.

My opinion is that they aren't positive yet. Are you temping too? I was lucky that the internet cheapie OPKs showed positives for me. Are you testing in the afternoon? That is the best time to catch the surge on an OPK. Good luck!

No, I don't temp. I remember using these when TTC my first son and they didn't work well and I went to CBFM so maybe I should just buy another one of those. And yes, I have been testing normally around noon, then in the early evening. Sometimes arnd 2 pm then 7 or 9. And then sometimes in the morning. But I have been testing 2-3 times a day. I've already spent $70 on these so I don't want to buy more. Maybe I am not gonna O this cycle.

Nope, not positive.. YET. I found that particular brand to be difficult for me. They weren't sensitive (which was good but only so good and then it was bad) but I'd easily miss my already short LH surge even with testing 2-3x per day.

I use cheapies from eBay (50 for $18 shipped) that work AWESOME for me anyway. CBEFM never worked, but only because I surge in the afternoon, so it missed my peak.

Awe shoot! lol Well I don't think I am gonna O this month then because that's as dark as they got and now they are light again.

I wonder if I should just count yesterday as O day since that's the darkest I got Saturday plus a few days before that I had a tone of EWCM and based on my cycle patterns and all that?! What do you think? I heard some women don't get full positives on those sometimes.

Do you check your CM? Has it dried up?

Sometimes our bodies get near a surge and then back off and then surge a few days later.

Yes I check CM. But only on the TP, not internally. I had a ton of EWCM during the week last week then more creamy stretchy if that makes sense. Up until yesterday it was a smaller amount and not as clear but still stretchy and a tad sticky. Now I don't really see much of anything. Well since the same thing happened to me TTC my first I am gonna go off my CM and symptoms and say I O'd yesterday since I also had twinges yesterday too. Thanks ladies!
