    Don't test with first morning pee!

    Between 12 - 3 but you also have to make sure you have strong wee so not alot of drinking & some holding in might help :lol:

    No hun - Go on with your normal day but try not to drink loads so when you test your water isn't diluted :lol:

    I did these with fmu at first then I realised I was doing it at the wrong time of day after reading what the other girls were saying :oops:

    Steph .... my OPKs also say that you're meant to let the wee get to room temp, which I did for the first few times .... but i don't bother now! And I still get results! I test between 3 and 8pm usually... and always get + ok. I can't always test at the same time due to work .. so sometimes I do 2 in a day to make sure I've covered myself! :D

    I know...leaving a pot of piddle lying around for half an hour is really not appetising

    Didn't you say your cycle was 40 days? If so that suggests start testing on day 19 (if you line them up) :?

    I think My PG brain has come back again :lol:
