Trying to conceive

Ok, so yesterday I got a positive OPK at CD16 which is highly unusual for me. I normally get a lot of pain and aches in my ovaries leading up to this but I only really had pains yesterday, and today.
I decided to continue with my OPK's because I'm thinking something isn't right.
I got another positive tonight which was 24 hours after my first positive. I've never had a positive 2 days in a row. I always get the positive then the following day its a light line.
I had short, sharp pains in my left ovary up until about 1pm today then they have disappeared. I had EWCM last night only, nothing really today.
What do we think? Have I ovulated or am I still waiting?
I'll keep testing right up until my normal ovulation date which is around CD23.

really??? God I was hoping I'd ov'd today. The pains have all kinda gone now but were pretty strong up until about 1pm today. Hmmmmm, I'll just keep OPKing and DTD.
Thanks all xx

I always got 2 OPK positives and would ovulate on the second day. This is why i like charting, no ambiguity about when you've ov'd. Make sure you keep DTD over weekend to cover all bases.

I've done a complete turn around here. We just booked to go to Florida last night. We head out on 7th July and plan to go to Universal Studios. Seems like pregnant ladies can't go on any of the rides so I'm kinda hoping I won't get pregnant this cycle. I don't think I will to be honest. It's not happened the last couple of cycles so why would this one be any different, apart from Sod's law of course!!!
Thanks AR - I'm not into temping. I'm too lazy to do that every day plus it's a step too far for me at this point. I like the OPKs cos they give me a 'ball park' for ovulation.

Haha you have probably evoked the law of sod now CA!!! Florida sounds awesome!
It could happen this cycle lovely, the reason it might is because for most people it will at some point. I know it feels like it never will when AF keeps turning up but for most people it will happen!!

Chances are if you've got a positive 2 days running you've caught the surge of LH on it's way up & down. If you keep getting them I'd be a bit confused.
I know you've said you aren't wanting to temp at the moment but it takes away the ambiguity of the OPKs but having said that it's a bit backward because the temp spike only happens after you've ovd!
Just jump on your H several times this weekend!
