Did I miss my O???

I just started using OPKs and before taking fertilaid I never had a one-line negative. There was always a line sometimes it was superrrr light but it was there. Im wondering if I missed my O.

Yeaterday I had a light line, and I figured today it would be darker, and it was stark white. I took it at a different time I uasally work second shift so I take it before work but I have to go in first shift today so I took it with FMU. Would that have anything to do with it?? Yesterday I also has EWCM.

So did I miss my O??

It sounds like everyone is different in terms of OPK's because when I was using them (this was my first cycle trying them) they were all 1 line negatives until the day I O'd....then I got a faint line @ 3pm so I retested @ 8pm and got a positive.  When I tested again the next day @ 3pm I had another faint line.....so it looks like I faded in and out within 24 hrs and would have missed it had I not tested twice.

That's not to say you missed yours....I'm just telling you my experience with the tests.

Also, from what I've read they don't recommend FMU with these tests, but rather your second urine of the day or really testing between 10-2.  I don't necessarily understand why, but that's what I read....so maybe the shifting of testing times is what threw off your test results?

Can you take the test tonight when you get home from work and see if you get anything then?

I seem to recall that you don't use FMU because the LH surge won't show up in your urine yet, it must happen earlier in the morning and need the time to get into your system. You might see a different result if you test again this afternoon, I doubt you missed it.
