hubbie and I have been trying to conceive for 6 months, this is our 7th cycle. I have been using cheap ovulation stripes up until this month and thought as we had been TTC for 6 months I would try the clearblue ones that have the smiley faces. My cycles are regular enough uaually 28 days but last month was 29 days. regularly I would of got my positive ovulation test wed night/thurs morning with the cheapies. I never got my test line as strong as my control line but very close and my body felt like it was ovulating An. I read this was common enough for woman. This month with clearblue I haven't took a smiley face at all, today being thurs and normally when I peak. Not even the flashy one. Has anyone else had a similar experience?

Hello. I used cheap opks in the past but struggled to see a line darker than the control. So this month i also used clear blue. I got few days of flashing before i got a static smiley at cd17. Which cycle date did you start testing and do you use fmu? What time of day were you using cheap opks? X

Hi Nelly I actually got my flashy smile face to day which I'm delighted about. Maybe the cheapies were all wrong. I'll keep testing and hopefully get my strong smile the next few days xx with the cheapies I was getting my strongest line cycle day 14, I'm now on cycle day 15 and as I said just got my flashy smile. I was using FMU but did 2 tests the past 2 days as I was panicking. Have u been TTC long nelly?

Aww phew! Great news. I had about 4 days of flashing smiles before i gotmy static so if you dont get static after a couple of days, dont worry.
I found cheap opks quite stressful last month and much prefer the clearblue digital as no trying to understand lines and using fmu is so much easier than holding wee in the afternoon!
This is month 2 ttc baby 2. Im much more chilled than last month as i felt i was over thinking everything last time. So hopefully being less stressed and having a more laid back approach will work. But wont find out for over a week. AF due a week tomorrow.
How about you? You been ttc long? How you finding things x

This is cycle 7 for us TTC baby number 1. I'm the same I feel less stressed this month. Hubbie changed jobs the past few months and it's was stressful for us both. This month is very calm so I'm hoping that's a good sign. Ah fx for u xx
