Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

Hi all. so as the title says I'm CD24 today. According to my days app AF should be due on Mon. I have been using OPKs since CD11 all of which came back negative apart from a possible high fertility on CD15. I say possible because I think I left it longer than the 10 mins max. Lots of EWCM from CD11 to CD15.
But it I never got a positive OPK. This morning however I used a CBD OPK and got a flashing smiley face (high fertility). So is it possible that I am ovulating this late in my cycle? Or could I be pregnant? I've told H and he has said to hold off using a P/T until AF is late.
What would you do?
Also, yesterday I got a sudden short sharp pain when I stood up, it felt like it was in my left ovary area. And I felt dizzy for a few seconds. Then sitting down I felt very slight cramps in my abdomen area, including ovaries both sides. Could this be ovulation pain/ implantation pain? I could ofcourse be looking too far into this. I normally do with these things.
So have any of you ov'd that late in cycle?
Thanks for your help!

Hi MS :-)
Hmmm, my better judgement is to suggest the same as your H, test on Tuesday if still no AF. However, if you ov'ed on CD15 (last day of EWCM), then you would be 9DPO today so a +ve HPT could be possible. However, I would imagine FMU is gone now so it's best to wait until tomorrow anyway? If you think you would be ok with seeing a neg, then do a HPT.
If you can wait & not drive yourself mad, I'd suggest trying another CBD opk tomorrow morning and see what you get. If it's another high, it could be either late ovulation or a pregnancy. Save your pee and then do a HPT if it's still high or it goes to peak. If you get a low, then the one today was a blip.
If the pain yesterday was implantation, HCG wouldn't be detectable in your FMU yet though?
FWIW, I've never ov'ed that late - mine are only ever between CD11 and CD14 so I'd be suspicious if it was 10 days late for ov. Even if I was stressed, the most it goes out by is 2 days on the longest (i.e. I had one cycle where I was travelling and very stressed and I ov'ed on CD16)

Thanks Tayto. I think I will do as you said and try another OPK in the morning. Are you testing soon? Fingers crossed for you x

Next Wednesday. I didn't last cycle either as I just drove myself mad in the past doing it!
Hope you manage to not drive yourself mad waiting for tomorrow xx

I had a random cycle last year when I ovulated on day 35 when I was expecting my AF, have you been unwell at all this month or had any shocks? That can delay ov.
If I were you I'd probably just do a HPT now to get the wondering out of my system and then if that's a bfn you know you need to get dtd! Opks can pick up pregnancy so it really could be either thing happening.
Good luck either way!!

Good luck for Wed Tayto. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.
Dolly - I have had quite a stressful month. Trying to sell my house so it could well be delayed because of this.

Keeping everything crossed for you MS.

Last month I had ewcm around cd14 but didn't ov until cd22 - body geared up but it didn't happen until later. So it is possible. That said I usually have a late-ish ov so it's not that unusual for me.
That said I really hope it's something good for you. Personally I would wait to test, but then I hate BFNs.

So 4 hours later and I just took another OPK, but a boots one just to confirm that I am OVing but it was completely negative. Is that normal? Is it because I haven't left enough time for Hormones to pick back up in urine? Or was this mornings OPK a dud? I'm also getting light cramps now.

It's unusual for an opk to pick up a pregnancy at 9dpo in my experience so id say it was more likely picking up the LH surge. I found the smiley faces gave me a positive hours and hours before a normal one would. I'd do another opk at 5/6pm both with another boots test and cb even though they say to use them in the morning.
11/09/2014 at 12:52
Thanks Tweetie Pie. That was my last boots test. So I'll just have to try the CBD tonight
11/09/2014 at 20:21
Well I just did another CBD at 8pm like Tweetie Pie suggested and got another flashing smiley and a tiny bit of EWCM too so I'm guessing it's late ov. I'm hoping I get that static smiley soon
