Trying to conceive

I feel so daft asking questions as I feel I should know but I have just got my first OPK today, as last month I clearly gave up hope and stopped testing too early. I am on CD30 and my last cycle was 41 days. What day will be classed as 1DPO? Also I am going to get straight into bd'ing tonight and will bd for the next 3-4 days continuously....is this about right?
I am going to test again until the OPK goes negative as I have also read somewhere that you ovulate 12-36 hours after your last positive...does this sound right?
I do have very slight cramping on the right hand side, which I know is more than likely down to ovulating x

It's hard to say on the basis of your cycle length, it'd be better if you chart, you'd have everything recorded

I got two strong lines today also - WTF? I was supposed to ovulate 3-4 days ago? Going to BD again tonight just in case ha ha, this is so confusing - never ending stress
By the way, you are right about the 12-36 hours after the positive opk. If you BD for the next 3-4 days, you will deffo do enough to catch the egg. Let's hope the swimmers are strong enough to get in

Yesterday was obviously a very good day for ovulation....fc this is our month....can't believe we will be in the 2ww together What day will you class as 1DPO then? Tomorrow? We BD'd last night and will again tonight but won't be able to saturday....sounds daft but I've got a little dog that my mum has but I've got him for the night on Saturday and it would be impossible to BD with him there as he is like a little baby and doesn't leave me alone and if we locked him out of the bedroom he would just cry at the door so got to hope bd'ing last night and tonight will be enough
I'm the same I was expecting to ovulate Monday so I'm 3 days later than I expected and that's why I was losing faith in the internet cheapies...I take back all the negative comments about them haha.
I got my positive at 11.30 yesterday morning x

We didn't BD last night, my partner annoyed me, he said he was tired? Anyways, going by my temperatures, I have either ovulated on Monday or Tuesday So I am officially 3DPO / 4DPO. I trust the temping and charting more than I trust the internet cheepies. I would say that if you detected the LH surge yesterday you will ovulate today so tomorrow will be 1DPO. The BD-ing should be enough hun, yesterday and today will be more than enough - assuming that you are ovulating today.

Awww no that would have annoyed me too but luckily you have BD'd plenty over the last few days
Well I am going to test again today and if it's negative then I guess that means I will have ovulated today as if I'm right in my thinking if it's positive that means I won't have ovulated yet?!?
As people say you only need to do it once and get a good swimmer so fc there is a special little swimmer waiting patiently for the egg x

Well tested again at 11.30 and it was negative which I'm happy about as it would have confused me a bit I think so I reckon I will have ov'd today....still getting twinges to my right side which would coincide with ov today x
