One more thing to be unsure about

Okay, so the OPK thing... THEY SUCK. Mostly because I'm totally unsure about whether I had my surge. My schedule is slightly wacky, so I may ovulate tomorrow or Thursday, but I should have a positive OPK by now, right?? So HOW dark does the line get?? I know they're not like HPTs where "any positive is a positive" but here's the thing. I was getting a faint line, and then today NO line to speak of. So do you think I already had the surge? Because I know how much you all like pictures, I took some. (Of course, the Monday one is old, and I know you're not supposed to read them after like 10 minutes, so I guess there's no way to compare.)

Yaya is concerned that hubby and I might miss my ovulation by relying on the OPK and not doing the nasty enough. Well, I'll put your mind at ease by letting you all know that when mama's trying to make a baby, she does NOT miss her opportunity. Haha. Poor T is going to be all tuckered out by the end of the week. I really just need the OPK to tell me when to call the doctor so they can start me on Progesterone on the right day. So do I call the doctor? Should I wait until tomorrow to see what it looks like then??

I hated OPK's too. They didn't work for me at all. All it did do was frustrate the hell out of me.

I think your best bet is do do the baby dance every like every other day or every two days.

I would say to call your doctor and let them know what you saw on the OPK.

Hi! It depends, I think on SOME brands if you get a line where part of it is dark, that can be a positive. It is hard to tell on Monday, but keep that in mind. Do you temp? That is the best way (in my opinion) to tell when Ovulation has occurred.

I took progesterone last cycle. Just beware- it makes you have pg type symptoms, but I knew the whole time I was not pregnant. My body felt like it was trying to fool me.

GL! I hope we both get pregnant with little turkey babies this cycle. Thanks for reading my blog. You always have such thoughtful things to say. ::hugs::

Yeah, OPK's are so hard to read! They drive me nuts!

OPKs suck. I'd call the doc since today's really looked like nothin', though Monday's didn't look that dark, but who knows. Maybe comparing it against your temps will help.

it may take a month or two to get used to it. it also took me a while to realize that i wasn't ovulating exactly when i assumed i was.

the test line must be DARKER than the control line.

it's just another thing to add to the list of frustrations.
