Hope everyone is okay! My body is fucking with me I mean seriously messing with me. Got a positive OPK earlier and my CM is EWCM. So weird! I think my body might just be in shock or something.... I don’t know. I need to write off this cycle completely and focus on getting through Christmas, AF arriving, and starting all over again at CD1. All my children, living and sleeping, were NTNP so I didn’t have this stress! Argh!

Cookie, when you dipped your HPTs, had you used any OPKs in the sample first? Whilst I have had a 'positive' IC when laid next to an OPK, I haven't had a positive IC after dipping in the same sample after an OPK but some have, so perhaps this could have caused your faint lines?
It would explain why you're now having fertile signs. It could also be your hormones adjusting still.

Anyway, thought I'd join in if ok. Been trying since August '16, ten chemicals in this time and currently having tests for infertility. I *think* at least one issue is low progesterone so I'm on Cyclogest each lp. I had a partial decidual cast last cycle at 9dpo which was one of the weirdest things I have seen! I don't know if this could have contributed to any early losses.
Just had my first bloods return which checked for FSH, LH, FBC, oestradiol and thyroid and all returned fine. I have an appointment with my GP next Wednesday and have to have a CD21 progesterone check done too, probably next week or early the week after. Due to ovulate anywhere between today and Christmas Day or Boxing Day. If we are lucky at some point then this will be our third together but our sixth between us

Yeah I always dipped an OPK first because Iím supposed to be ovulating now. Do you think that messed them up and caused the lines? I got an even darker OPK earlier although my CM is more watery/lotiony now. Iím just taking this cycle as a fail and will start again after AF, whenever she shows her face. I did feel very nauseous this morning and my lower stomach Bikini line area was very sore and achey but thatís all stopped now.

Cupcake - I really hope this is your month! Good luck for all your tests xx

Yes it could have caused false positives, dipping them after OPKs. I personally haven't experienced this but others have so it is possible. If you take an OPK and an IC and lay them next to each other touching then your IC will probably turn positive so it's feasible it may be positive when dipped in the same sample after an OPK.
I wouldn't write this cycle off just yet, it may just take a little longer for things to happen. Hopefully tracking things will give you some more definitive answers soon

I think you have every chance! Sperm can live for at least five days, some says seven days. How long is it usually between positive OPK and ovulation for you? This obviously plays a role too. If you can't do anything this evening perhaps tomorrow? If you ovulate today then you have until tomorrow. But if you ovulate tomorrow, then you have until Tuesday. I know it's probably the hardest time of year to time things as if you're not busy then you're tired out from being so busy!
I had a positive OPK yesterday evening, we have BD since CD7 so plan on getting in at least a quickie today and hopefully tomorrow, and of course Boxing Day is my husband's birthday so I'm guessing we'll get some more in then too. I usually ovulate on the day or the day after my positive OPK so Boxing Day is likely pointless where baby making is concerned so that will just be for fun lol
