Trying to conceive

CP I'm sure it was you that said you started doing daily OPKs around a week after ovulation??
So CP or anyone lease that can help.....
What kind of line are you looking for after ovulation and before AF is due? Would you expect a faint test line at all or does it have to be positive to mean anything? Around what dpo did you get lines on an OPK before getting a BFP?
I'm confused as to what's happening with me this cycle and I'm not sure if I've actually ov or what but I'm just going round the houses at the moment.
This is probably best answered by the BT users but wanted to post it up on the TTC board as its quite relevant over here.
Thanks in advance.

Yes I used to from about 7 dpo (bear in kind though that I was vvvvvvv obsessed having had numerous losses so felt I had to do something iyswim)
Anyway, it should be a positive opk for it to signify a possible bfp, I used them , to make sure absolutely no line or a faint line then on bfp cycles I tended to get a positive opt around cd10ish and would use an ic to check (it was like a chemistry experiment most mornings . It doesn't mean anything unless its a clear positive as you do tend to get lh in your wee throughout the cycle.
I used to say I wasn't testing till 11/12 dpo but by doing the opk I kind of convinced myself that I wasn't doing a pregnancy test so it was ok I should have just tested with a preg test to avoid numerous opks
I got my bfp on 9dpo with Isaac but no pos opk till 11dpo (yes any excuse to still test!!)

Thanks for that CP. I'm in 2 minds just to step away from the tests but I hate not knowing where I'm at or what's happening.
I've got the sorest boobs I've ever had except when I was pg but HPTs are showing BFN so I don't think it's my cycle thus time but I just wish AF would turn up and give me a break.

What cd are you? How many dpo? Have you done an opk? I'm sure autumn rose did opks too

I'm CD30. My cycles range from 31-36 days. Normally I get really strong ov pains for days and then so bad I feel sick when I do actually ov. This cycle I got some mild pains for a few hours late at night on CD18 then nothing else. CM dried up a few days after that and then the sore boobs started 5 days after so if I say CD19 was ov day (although I'm not convinced) then today would be 11dpo and I got a BFN this morning.
I NEVER get sore boobs like this but it's obviously just another symptom I need to suffer and not get a BFP. Meh.

Oh and meant to say. I did an OPK earlier and it had a light-medium test line.

Hey lovey, hope you got back ok and your flight want much later.
This time I was still using OPKs 'looking' for OV as I had no idea it had passed and I had missed the surge or hadn't started using the OPKs after the ERPC. I started getting faint lines, just like I used to when I was building up to a surge, I got faint lines for a few days then a pretty close to positive then a positive, I kept doing them expecting it to drop back to a complete blank yet I got another positive the next day and that night, by the 3rs day when I had another positive that morning I did a IC in the afternoon as I 'knew' by that point something was different.
Have you been getting positives? Keeping everything crossed for you G xx

I wrote this hours ago but it didn't post! I've seen your posts now. I hope it's good news, I was thinking though could it be anything to do with the long flights effecting your cycle?x

Not sure that it means anything to be honest. I feel like af is going to be here in the next day or 2 so I think I'm out for this cycle.
I'm stepping away from the pee sticks and will wait and see when af arrives.
