Hi everyone...I have not been trying too long....but it feels like forever when suddenly you realize you are almost 34 and oh man....i better get movin... so we have tried for a few months (3) and I finally got the OPK's. I got a rite aide brand first....then turned to the smiley face. I started feeling slippery cm on Nov 10...9 days past first day of period (I still don't know all the abrv.) and ran to the store to start testing. I read it was best to test 2X per day (lets see how long the finances last for that)...and so have been. I ran out of that and made it to walmart and bought the digital clearblue smiley face one....NEGATIVE until last night 9pm SMILE (I tested at 5pm and it was NEG! Just had a feeling I should test again). ANYWAY...my question is....I have noticed that after you pull out the test stick, the tyical lines show up and you can read them. They have not been exactly the same or my test line darker at all....a bit darker than the previous days but nothing I would consider a positive. The only reason I thought positive is because of smiley face. What gives? Anyone else experience this? I realized if I had not started with the digital I would still have thought I was negative. We have been BDing since sat. every other day....so WE HOPE....but we thought we timed it right last time and NADA....anyway....this OPK thing is a new obsession...I can see myself going crazy over it and spending money....any tips advice...or experience with seeing faint lines but getting a smiley face anyway?
