My OPKs arrived today
So being as I've never taken one I'm not quite sure what to think. I realise this is negative being as it's not as dark/darker than the control line however does ANY kind of line mean I'm gearing up to O? given my temp rise this morning (will try to put my FF chart into my signature) Although I've only got 2 temps on there so can't really consider it an actual rise yet
I *think* I've attached a pic of the opk.. if anyone can shed some light that'd be great

mrsmummy2 - OPKs always have 2 lines, at least mine do. Sometimes that test line is super duper light but always there. So doesn't necessarily mean you're gearing up to O but also doesn't mean you're not either.

So if I take another one tomorrow and it's darker that means O is on it's way at some point in the near future? and if it's the same as today then just take one daily?

I ordered 50 so not worried about wasting

Yes , test daily until they start to darken up. Then some ladies like to test twice a day (morning and afternoon/evening) to make sure they don't miss the surge.

Everyone is different, mine always stays positive for more than 1 day so I don't really need test twice a day. But I think we're all POAS addicts so sometimes I do just for fun. lol

Mrsmummy mine have no pattern of progression. They will get lighter and darker for no apparent reason then one day it’s positive. Good luck!

Sometimes OPKs will bounce around a bit - they get dark, they get light again, the light might even nearly disappear and then BAM! You get your positive. You'll get a feel for how your body works with LH as you use the OPKs longer. But it's not positive until the test line is as dark or darker than the control. Take them at the same time every day, between 11AM and 8PM, for the most accurate results.

Dream - It never hurts to BD one last time after O day, since the egg can still be good 12-24 hours after it's released! Every little bit helps, right?

AFM, I'm definitely in the TWW now. I'm not sure if I'm 1dpo or 2dpo at the moment, but we'll see whether FF gives me my crosshairs tomorrow or Sunday.
