    morning girls! as the thread title says really...

    im 50/50 that im ovulating.. this morning i had string like clear cm which im thinking is ewcm. i did an OPK and jumped in the shower and when i got back out there was a very faint positive.. even so it still looked like a positive. i looked on the back of the wrapper and it says a positive should appear within 40 minutes.

    but that seems quite a while.. can OPKs have evaps? how common is it?

    thanks ladies!!xxx

    if it's a very faint line it's not a positive, it needs to be as dark, or darker, than the control line! That always happens to me, then I get excited,lol. Try again later sometime you have an LH surge later in the day, mines is usually bout 6pm :)

    40 mins? That does seem like a long time.

    As Lizzie said, if it was very faint, it doesn't really count. But remember that it's just a snapshot of where you're at right now. Either you already Ov'd or you're about to. Considering the EWCM, I would test twice a day until you see the +.
