OPK confusion

Thu, 01-01-2009 - 11:21pm

I started using OPKs earlier this week and have had very faint lines on them. I've been testing about 10 am after getting up to use the bathroom around 6 or 7 for the first time. Today I also tested about 9:30 and it was either positive or darn close to it - DH and I both looked at it very closely and couldn't decide it they were the same or if the line was just a hair lighter than the test line. I'm pretty sure I used the bathroom at 6:30 when my kids got up so it wouldn't have been FMU but I was so tired I can't remember for sure. Would FMU give a false positive? I tested again tonight at 10 and it was clearly negative. Today is CD 14 which would be early for me, but then again, last month was a longer than usual cycle and sometimes when i have a long cycle, the next one is shorter than usual. I'm hoping to get a cutoff of a couple of days, so I'm not sure if I should stop now if this is a + or keep going in case I'm not going to O until Sun or Mon.

This morning my temp shot up. It's higher than it has been for the past week but not as high as it was at the start of my cycle and I still had some EWCM this morning and my cervix is still high. Could it have been O? I took another OPK this morning at 9:30 again (used the bathroom at 6:30 and haven't had anything to drink since) and it looked again like it "could" be positive - the color looked the same but the line wasn't as solid as the test line. So am I just screwing myself up by testing in the morning or would it have been two positives and last nights negative was a fluke??

Actually, the most accurate time to test is between noon & 8 pm.

Looks like I O'd somtime yesterday - my temp went up above all the previous temps but a good amount and my cm was creamy by bedtime last night. Now I just cross my fingers and hope for the best - we had out last attempt Thurs. night - I know that's boy territory but I'm hoping timing doens't really affect us much - both our boys were conceived with 2-3 day cutoffs. We both did the supps and took out as much salt, potassium and caffeine as possible. I also took sudafed before each attempt and used rephresh after each one. My pH stayed between 4.5-5 pretty much the entire time, only getting up to 5.5 once or twice. I also noticed we're under a new moon and a girl sign, so hopefully that's good. My 2yo has all of a sudden started talking about his sister out of the blue - we've never talked about it to or in front of him, so I'm hoping that's a good sign.

Hello,


Looks like you did O- your temps are definitely going up.
