    I’m trying to track my cycle so I’m taking OPKs to see if I ovulate around the same every month. However, this month its 2 days past when I should have ovulated and I still haven’t got a positive OPK!

    They are getting darker (3 a day for the past 4 days) but still not positive. I’m still having ewcm so I guess I just haven’t ovulated yet. We haven’t DTD as we aren’t currently trying, just working out my cycles.

    Just needed a vent!

    That last one is looking pretty close. You should ovulate soon! Good luck. I know it can be annoying. My OPK this cycle was totally negative the day before it went super dark positive!

    Thanks!

    I just took this one and it’s getting lighter now. There’s no way even over 10/20 minutes this will turn positive. Does that mean I’ve not ovulated this cycle?

    hmm how tricky! Unless you already did ovulate super quick when they were getting darker looking? Sometimes it can happen quick. Are you temping at all? Temping or ultrasound is really the only way to confirm ovulation occurred. If you are temping did you have a temp increase?

    Took another again today and it’s lighter than the darkest ones. I tested at 10/2/6 each day so unless I surged overnight one night I’m not sure what happened?

    I don’t temp as my toddler still has me up early hours so I don’t get a solid block of sleep. But I might try next cycle and see if I can get some accurate temps x

    Honestly. I was never great at temping. I can confirm ovulation occured by wearing my fitbit every day and night lol. It does the same thing as a temp does. It goes up 3 resting heart rates when I have ovulated. So like one day is 59 then I think I ovulated so my resting heart rate would be 60 next day 61 then 62 days following. It is pretty cool. I have broken sleep as well do to my 8 month old so I hear you! Do you have any problems with your cycle? Like PCOS or anything that makes ovulating an issue?

    I was never regular until I had my kids, but I’ve been fairly regular 28-32 days ever since. So I do always allow a few days window for ovulation. I chart cervical position and CM and I was having SHOW when the tests were dark but never positive. So could my body have just gotten ready for ovulation but not actually ovulated?

    I don’t have PCOS or anything, I’ve had many tests etc when my periods were irregular but nothing came up ‍♀️

    Hiya hon u prob had a short surge at night.
    When we were ttc our baby boy I did ovulation tests and mine never ever got darker than the control line. I must of had a very short surge and missed the peak because my almost there OPK is now kicking around on my rug lol.
    Good luck hon.
    Also I think u can O at different times each month. Like one month u may O on cycle day 13 but the next u mite O earlier or a later by a few days.
    I used to O around cycle day 17 but with DS I ovulated on day 13.
    Hope u get ure BFP[-o<
