    Default OPK and Timing

    Hello ladies!

    Well I am new to using OPK's - my DH and I were pregnant in July last year but it turned out to be a blighted ovum and I had a D & C in September. My monthly visitor returned exactly 30days after the procedure in October and we have been trying since then with no luck!

    So I have started using the OPK's - I used them for December to get used to them but we had no luck last month and are using them again.

    Now I got my first positive on Saturday morning (it's Monday afternoon here now) and I got my last positive Saturday afternoon (approx. 3pm). Sunday morning and since I have had negatives.

    DH and I did the BD on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights and prior to then was Tuesday and the previous Sunday night.

    Have we timed our BD correctly?!?! I am so confused and to when I will actually ovulate etc - although today my CM has gone back to creamy - so I am figuring I have ovulated already!

    ARGGGHH I am getting a major headache trying to work all this stuff out! ha ha Can any lovely ladies give any advice or feedback on our timings?!?!

    Thank you so so much!!!

    Thank you Peace! I hope so! It happened so easy last time without any OPKs etc but this time seems as though its going to be harder. I have been trying not to worry about potential damage from my d & c because we have only been trying for a few months but its hard!

    Hate the tww too, its torture and how lovely is it when your mind starts playing tricks on you too! Ha ha

    An OPK will detect your LH surge. Once you see the first positive, it means you will likely O within 12-48hrs. Your egg is viable for 12-24hrs. I always got 2-3 days of +OPKs, so I guess my LH surge was long and slow. I would always start to DTD after the first positive.

    How long have you been using the OPKs for this time?

    I started last Tuesday and got nothing all week then got faint line on Friday then strong dark line saturday back to faint sunday morning, even fainter yesterday and absolutely nothing today. I was testing twice a day and only got the strong positives on Saturday. So I am hoping we timed it right!!!

    So now in the dreaded tww!!! :-/

    I was the same as you M. I thought I had a positive on CD12 but then the line was very dark CD13 and back to faint CD14. So I only got one days full positive. What time of day did you do them? I was doing them at lunchtime.
