Okay. So, I am on CD14, and was having 'twinges' this morning around noon - and then it turned into really bad cramps around 5pm. I took a CBE OPK and got the smiley face.
(Since this is my first OPK test this month, I don't know how long the Smiley Face has been there...)
Unfortunately, DH travels, so he went out of town on Wednesday – March 28, 2012, however, we BD that morning and will again when he returns on Sunday – April 01, 2012.
I'm wondering if the cramp AND the smiley face means that I am Ovulating, or am I about to Ovulate (within the next day or so) ...and have I missed it?!?!?!? HELP!!!
When u get that smiley face it means u are likely to ovulate within the next 24 to 48 hours, as it measures the LH surge which is the hormone that u have before u release an egg. I got pregnant using clear blue opks, I got my smiley face on a monday, BD on the Monday night and the Tuesday morning, got another smiley face on the Tuesday but it had gone by the Wednesday. When I looked back at my chart (I was also taking my temp) it showed that I had ovulated on the Tuesday, so it is possible to get the smiley face on the actual day of ovulation. Hope that helps!
