    As long it's been at least 4 hours since the last time you went you're ok taking the test when you get up later.

    Oh yah, that's for a HPT. I don't use opk's but I'm pretty sure you're supposed to take them more in the middle of the day...it should say in the instructions though.

    Definitely 4 hours of "holding it" is the most important part. First morning urine for an HPT, and NOT first morning urine for an OPK. OPK's detect LH which is produced in the morning hours and won't filter into your urine until later in the day. So, first thing in the morning will possibly result in a false negative! They say 10am to 8pm is best for an OPK, but many people have a lot of luck with ~2pm as a "sweet spot" of sorts!

    What brand of OPK are you using? What HPT's are you using? I might be able to help you out! :)

    Well, the OPK's wouldn't go truly positive until you hit 10-15mIU of something... and you shouldn't see anything on the HPT if you haven't hit 25mIU... So, you are in one of those scenarios where your OPK SHOULD go + before your HPT... but it seems you already know that! LOL You're just doubting yourself!

    I looked at your pics, and I definitely see the 2nd line on the HPT inverted and not inverted! Stop doubting yourself! CONGRATS! :hugs:
