Hi, My husband and I are ttc #2. It took 5 years to have my one year old. Now I have been trying to use the opk test strips but I never did get a dark postive. I am posting a picture to see if any of them are dark enough to consider postive.

 

Thanks

I found OPK's with lines to be too confusing for me so I use the digital.  They are more expensive but easier to read.  Do you chart and/or check cervical mucus?  That can be really helpful with or without OPK's.

Great question!

I have had a few months of those "not super distinct" 2nd lines on my OPK's too.  

I just figured not a fab surge.

 

I think the 2nd one form the bottom could be +.

 

 

Baby Dust to you!!

I have to agree with skeemama, the second one from the bottom looks like it could be a positive. Maybe you haven't ovulated yet. Try tracking your BBT as well on fertility friend. What is your cycles like? My periods range anywhere from 35 to 42 day cycles. July I ovulated on CD18 and this month I ovulated on CD 30. Hope this helps.
