Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

Such an idiot. Did an OPK this morning, no idea why, just wanted to get POAS out of my system. The test line was darker than the control line and within the time frame. Never had that before. Obviously I've read about using OPKs as HPTs and always thought it was silly. Now I'm torn between one second thinking Oooh this could mean something good and the next giving myself a slap for letting myself get carried away. Can anyone share any stories to stop me getting my hopes up? Or explain a more realistic reason why I would have a positive OPK ie that LH rises again just before AF? Banning myself from any sticks in future 2WW now!

You 100% sure you ovulated when you think you did? If so, test! X

Browny, I've been temping so from that (and a clearblue positive OPK) I'm assuming I have. I posted yesterday as was questioning my chart (no crosshairs because I stopped temping 7 days before I ovulated, oops!) and everyone else thought it looked like I had ovulated too. Hopefully get CD21 test results today to confirm it further. I can't test today as I'm travelling for work, in meetings all day, and have my boss glued to my hip (I need to buy tests, I don't have any, I don't want to test at night as I feel thats pointless, I would rather use FMU so the result was more reliable). Now tempted to test tomorrow, but was going to try and hold out until Sunday.

Yes it does seem like you ovulated as your average temperature seems to have risen. Maybe see if your day 21 bloods confirm ovulation and if so then do a test? Hopefully your referral has invoked the law of sod! X

Yes me, I did an OPK at 11dpo and it was positive. I then did an HPT and it was also positive. Your chart looks really promising. I think you should test. Let us know how you get on xxxx

Stupid OPK! Wish I hadn't done it now :-( Thanks Browny, me too, I hadn't been testing so I didn't get my hopes up but now I need to keep slapping myself to stop doing exactly that.
08/11/2013 at 08:10
CA! Oh no (although yay for you of course!)! Stop giving me even more positive stories ... I'll end up getting even more carried away! :-)

Oh I've just read your whole comment and that you aren't going to test today. Boooooo lol.
You don't have to use FMU. It just needs to be fairly concentrated. I got both of mine after work. Just don't drink too much for a few hours before.

Hi Pep, I've done opks at a similar time and got a line but obviously no bfp, however your temp is nice and high and the chart looks good. I think if you don't go and test today you're going to find it impossible to concentrate or function all day! Xx

I'm too scared. I can't cope with the disappointment :( I'll see how I feel but I think tomorrow is the earliest I'll do it. Sorry ladies xx
Obviously if Dolly is right then that might change, but I'm going to be pretty busy today so I should be kept distracted. Plus I still have the overwhelming feeling I'm not pregnant rather than I am, if I'm honest.
08/11/2013 at 08:16
Pep if I was you I would be testing.
A frer would show a bfp with afternoon wee at this stage, just in case you decide to test! I am a terrible influence!
08/11/2013 at 08:21
Everything crossed for you darling..... I have the opposite feeling to you about this! x
08/11/2013 at 08:22
I understand you not wanting the disappointment. Why don't you buy some pregnancy tests today then tomorrow morning do another OPK and if its still positive then try an HPT?
ETA - I still don't feel pregnant!!!
08/11/2013 at 08:32
Pep I got the most positive opk I've ever managed to get right before I got my BFP. Wait until you're ready, but you really do need to test :) I have everything crossed for you xx
08/11/2013 at 08:51
Thanks ladies. Sorry, I don't mean to tease you all. I honestly thought you would all give me stories about how this probably means nothing etc!
I've just spoken to the doctors surgery and they have finally looked into my AWOL CD21 results. They are now being sent to my GP to look at and I should be able to get the results this afternoon. Maybe once its officially confirmed (FX) I ovulated ill be more tempted to test!
08/11/2013 at 08:52
I think you should test otherwise you'll be thinking bout it and wondering all day/night. At this stage it doesn't need to be fmu, I got better lines in the afternoon/evening. Fx for you!xxx

You need to do a pregnancy test, u can get a pos opk if pregnant
08/11/2013 at 09:09
Dont know if you remember but I had a positive OPK at 13DPO, threw a tantrum and took a pregnancy test and got a strong BFP and am now 10 weeks. My fingers are beyond crossed for you xx
08/11/2013 at 09:47

08/11/2013 at 10:02
