I have decided I am so done with OPKs and looking at my cervical mucus (aka obsessing) and I am just going to wait until I see my ob/gyn on Monday to confirm when the hell I ovulated.

If anyone feels like listening... on CD 13-15 I had (what I thought were) positive OPKs. The control and test lines were the same color. I had watery and creamy CM on these days, and cramping on CD 15. Anyways, then I noticed on CD 16 my cervical mucus production had increased! So I took another OPK and the test line was practically nonexistent. Same for CD 17 too. Then the night of CD 18 I had terrible cramping. So on the morning of CD 19, for the hell of it, I decided to take another OPK. The test line was really dark, significantly darker than the control line. And my cervical mucus was watery and had increased in quantity even more. So I BD'd twice yesterday just to be safe. So did my body gear up to O and then back off? And I actually ovulated today? Or what?

WHAT THE F.

I would *guess* cd19 based on the opk test line being darker than the control line -that is the definition of a true positive. Btw the dr won't be able to confirm either -it will only be an educated guess too. Bloodwork will only confirm O as well, not narrow down the date either.

If you really want to know when you O, you need to be temping. It's the only way to confirm the day & it will give you a great deal of info about your cycle.

I can't temp because I have a job where I sometimes work overnights and my sleep schedule is really screwy. I tried before and didn't get clear results. Then again, I also wasn't ovulating then so maybe this time will be different. If august is not my month, I will start doing temps in september again, or at least try to. But hopefully, this is finally my month!
