Dinky what times do you test and how long do you hold? I have to be doing something wrong. I can't get a strong line. Just a feint dried up one

I normally start testing around 2pm and try to hold for at least 2 hours, I drink a lot so it's hard for me to hold lol. I'm having problems with my opks at the moment. Just did 2 tests with the same sample, different brands, one bfp and one bfn :/ so confused!!

I am an OPK newbie, but my opinion would be those are both negative... When I got positives, both lines were equally as thick and my test line was darker than the control line. In yours, the one that could be positive (on the bottom right?) - if you kinda blur your vision and look, it's doesn't appear as dark - but close!...but again, I just started OPKs last month lol...did you test again a few hours later? And, obviously, I am going with control line being on the right side!

Got a faint line starting yesterday CD11. It's about the same today CD12-this morning anyway, I'll test again this afternoon. My surges are only about 12 hours so it's important to catch them. DH and I have decided to just BD every day this week until it's confirmed so we don't have to stress about it. Plus I have been SUPER lazy about temping as you can see by my hideous chart!

Spencer, I would say that CD5 is pretty early to start using OPKs. You could get multiple lines throughout the cycle with out it being your actual surge and it's common for them to come and then fade. That being said, I typically get mine at that later in the day test and it's usually just barely positive. Some of us just have smaller surges. I hold for about 2-3 hours before going because I also drink tons of water and my urine is diluted. Don't worry!

Dinky it looks like you are about to ovulate if you aren't already today!

Good luck ladies! We'll all be in the oh so wonderful TWW before you know it!

I got these tests this morning. The green one is bfp and the pink one is about as dark as those pink ones get when I have positives they are rubbish!!

How is everyone? I am going crazy adding stuff to my Amazon baby list. Has anyone seen the manduca baby carriers? So cute and so many designs.

I've got awful o pains I've had 2 children and been pregnant 3 times, since my d&c in august I've had really bad ovulation pains and I've never ever had o pains before! I don't think it's normal maybe I have cysts?? It's both ovaries but the right one is always the worst!
That's sweet that you have a baby list! No I've not seen those carriers but I do want one of those car seats that turn into a pushchair! That would make the school run so much easier!!

I'm too afraid to plan for baby stuff until I hear that heart beat (and get a bfp, haha). With only two failed pregnancies it would be way to dangerous for my heart.

My cervix is moving up though, so that's a good sign that O is on her way You know dinky, I have some cycles where its very sharp and stabbing pain, and others where I don't notice at all. "They" aren't even sure what causes O pain so I wouldn't worry too much about it, or read much into it. I kind of find it comforting in a way. I, like the dork that I am, lay there and think about the egg traveling down the tube and meeting up with all those waiting swimmers we worked so hard to put there, lol.
