Smiley face?


So this will be my first month using OPK, I will have the clearblue one that shows the circle or smiley face. When I receive the smiley face does that mean I am ovulating that day, already have, or about to? Should I keep testing after I see the first smiley face? New to this and need some experienced ladies answers : ))

Baby dust to all!

Also I will do my first test on CD12, is that to late? according to calendars and all I am suppose to ovulate between March 5th and 9th!

hello. Ovulation will occur about 8-36hours after you get your . Remember to test in the afternoon between 2-4pm is the best. Also try no to drink too much before testing. I keep testing until disappears. I also test 2-3 times a day just to make sure I don't miss the beginning of the surge.

Also are you keeping track of your temperature? That is to be extra sure that ovulation occurred. Good luck!

Thanks so much! i will get the clerblue and a cheaper off brand to test 2 times a day : )
I don't check my temp. I know that you are suppose to check that every day when you get up at the exact same time. My schedule doesn't allow that. I work night shifts from 8pm to 8am, like I work 2 nights then off for 2. So I wouldnt have an accurate temp. It's our 3rd month ttc and I will be using OPK and preseed as well as a pillow under my butt for 20 min : )

Haha I am doing the exact same thing!!! I am using Clearblue, preseed, and pillows under my butt. I also take prenatals and extra folic acid.

What CD are you and how long are your cycles?

I used the Clear Blue digital OPK this last month. I think they are easy to use b/c of the digital aspect, so there isn't any question of "is that a line? I think I see a line. Do you see a line?" I started testing on CD6, just once a day, and got a positive on CD12 and stopped testing at that point. Once you get a smiley you are supposed to have intercourse within the next 24-48 hrs. If you are just starting out w/the OPK I would recommend just once a day and see how it goes, and see if it corresponds with your physical symptoms of ovulation as it can all get to be very overwhelming. I am just taking this all one step at a time!

Bit worried, CM today is stretchy & like egg white yet just did CB ovulation stick & no smiley face! Im on day 14 today. CM would indicate Im about to ovulate yet no surge obviously detected. Worried im either not ovulating or if I am i will miss the fertile days if no smiley face appears.
