Trying to conceive

My opk's have been confusing over the last few days. I know you should read each 1 as an individual (either positive or negative) but usually they darker towards my ov date. Yesterday I did 1 at 10 and it was darker than the 1 I did at 7pm. Then I did 1 again this morning at 10 & it was very dark but not quite positive then 1 again at midday but this 1 was lighter. I am expecting to get a positive today & ovulate tomorrow (looking forward to ov pains already - it's like having a second period ). Think I'll do another 1 later today. Does it make a difference how much liquid you've had as I had a drink this morning but the 2nd test (that was lighter) was after swimming so nothing to drink between the 2.
Confused. I figured if I got a positive earlier today I would dtd tonight as I know you can ov between 12-48 hours after 1st positive but now I think I'll just wait till the morning for the best chance.

I think if you drink a lot it can certainly affect the result.
Could you have surged overnight last night?
Good luck! I hope things become clearer soon :-)

I hadn't thought about a surge last night Ducky, hope not as we haven't done it today. Usually I have 2 days of +opk. I will have have to wait & see what happens I suppose

Mine got darker towards ov date. I know you're meant to take the faint ones as negative but I thought of them as building up to ov.
