Analyze my OPT please

I'm having a hard time figuring out if my OPT is positive or not...The lines don't look exactly the same...but they don't look as different as the instuctions say they would if the test was negative. At first glance I see a negative...but then when I look again they seem pretty similar...I don't know, I'm confused.


So what do you all think? First 2 pics are after about 3 minutes....
I m having a photo 1226708-1
I m having a photo 1226708-2


 


These are after about 10 mins:
I m having a photo 1226708-3
I m having a photo 1226708-4


EDIT: Never thought I'd be sharing so many pictures of a little stick I just peed on...lol :)

LOL!!  From what I can see I say they look positive!!  I know the two lines are supposed to be the same.  I think they are the one on the left just maybe isnt quite as thick.  I know you were mentioning you thought you were nearing fertility so get BD'ing :)

is a negative supposed to have just one line or one of the lines isnt as thick?  the lines look pretty identical to each other to me.  when i used OPK's, it was a smiley face so it was pretty clear cut to read otherwise i might be pretty confused too.  :)

That test is positive. The left line needs to be as dark as or darker than the other line And it looks as dark as. So get to it! Good luck!

So the consensus is positive! That's fabulous!!!


Another question...if we DTD yesterday morning, but can't today (he's on shift at the fire station tonight) will tomorrow be too late and if so do you think yesterday morning was good enough?


Sparkle the only OPT's that I've seen (only 2 different brands at my grocery store) have the 2 lines...the one on the left which is the test line and the one on the right which is the control. The test line is supposed to be the same color as the control...if it's lighter then it's a negative. I'll have to find the smiley face tests because that sounds WAY easier!!!

It really depends on how soon after the opt you O.  It can be as soon as that same day, or it could be a couple of days later.  If you dtd yesterday, assuming you have the right CM, then you might get pregnant from that time, but it still may be a day or two before you actually O, so I think tomorrow would be a good idea too, just in case.

I actually prefer the lines because then you can see the "fade in", or watch the lines get darker each day letting you know everything is on track. The smiley face ones are simply positive or negative so I know I'd get anxious not being able to at least watch the progress each day and instead just keep getting negatives. But that's just me. The smiley ones are also a lot more expensive and I am way too addicted to POAS for those! LOL

this is the OPK by clearblue easy that i used with the smiley face. 


this is the OPK photo 1227899-1


they sell them at my local walgreens.  i believe about $18 for 10 sticks.  but like odessa said, it's either positive or negative so you wouldnt see the progress each day.  luckily i got a smiley face on the first day (CD 11) that i tested and my BFP about 2 wks later so i didnt go through packs and packs of these, otherwise that would start getting pretty expensive.

Ok let the madness begin (or continue)...Laura I think I'm addicted to POAS too...just finished taking another test and this time it was clearly negative...like I could barely see a test line at all.


So what does that mean? FF hasn't recorded a temp spike for me yet and neither has myfertilitycharts.com, my CM is just barely on the watery side, I wouldn't consider it stretchy either...Is there a possibility that I O'd yesterday? I hope I didn't miss my opportunity. There's no DTD for hubby and I tonight...the earliest would be tomorrow morning...is that too late?


I'm so confused.

maybe it was actually a negative and it looks darker to us?  I know you had been talking about tyour CM being watery so maybe its on the verge of egg whites.  keep watching the temps and the CM and CP and try and BD when and as often as you can!!

Thanks for the pep talk :) I think I'd feel a lot better if DH were home and we could BD tonight. I'm feeling very anxious like "OMG I'm Oing & I cant do anything about it b/c I don't have a cup of his sperm lying around"....lol...crazy hormones!

did you take a test yesterday at all? and if so, when? You might have had your surge in the middle of the night last night. The OPT is positive a day or two before you ovulate. So even if you did have your surge last night and caught the end of it today, you probably won't atually ovulate until tomorrow at the earliest, depending on your other charting info and where you are in your cycle. I'd say DTD as ASAP, but don't panic that you missed it


 


but I know how you feel because yesterday I had my positive OPT and decent CM so I was all set to make sure we DTD...then we ended up having a big fight so that wasn't going to happen. I considered making up with him just to get at his sperm! LOL


Luckily we DTD the night before and we're all made up for tonight so I'm sure it will be fine...you'll be just fine too!

Here's myfertiltiychart.com chart...if it helps at all...It's still predicting me to O tomorrow so that's a good sign I suppose...
I took the first OP test yesterday evening...That was the test that came back positive. I took the second test tonight...negative. We DTD yesterday morning so hopefully that'll be ok.


Here s myfertiltiychart com photo 1230108-1


 


Oh Laura that would drive me crazy!! I'd probably force myself on DH even after a fight for his sperm....I can just hear me saying "honey I'll tell you your right and really mean it if you just let me have just a teaspoon of your sperm".....lol!

LOL it's so funny cause sometimes when I am heating things up with the hubs he'll ask "Are you really just after my baby batter?" And I'll say "don't be silly, I'm not even ovulating yet" but really in the back of my mind I'm thinking that I am ovulating SOON so it's good to get some extra shots in there early! I just don't want him to think I don't want him just for him anymore. sshhhhh!


@Lucky, if you DTD that morning you should be totally fine!

@shalli I use both FF and www.myfertilitycharts.com. The chart I posted is from there. I like it because it shades your fertile days darker as you get closer to ovulation even though it hasn't recorded a temp spike...it's more based on cycle prediction I suppose. I was having trouble saving my FF chart last night and this just seemed easer to read.


DH and I have a "date" tonight...and he's been storing now since Mon. so hoping that the little guys are full of swimming energy...lol


I love that once TTC starts taking place the roles totally switch and it's no longer the guy trying to butter up the girl but it's the girl trying to butter up to the guy...lol!
