Today I've got a smiley face on the CBD OPKs! I didn't do one yesterday as I actually ran out and didn't top up because I was feeling like it was never going to happen any-time soon. Today I've had sore-ish BBs and suspected something 'might' be happening so purchased some more OPKs and I was very happy to see a smile!. I know typically you ovulate 48 hours from when you see a smile - but not sure if I would have got a smile last night too if I actually did OPK? Is it worth testing until I get a blank circle again, and then I assume I have ovulated?
I had been temping but gave up on Sunday as was feeling so disheartened with it! Maybe its worth starting to take my temp again from tomorrow morning?
Basically I'd just like to try and pinpoint my ovulation day so I know how many DPO I am to drive myself up the wall

Pep - I could be wrong but I thought the CBD OPKs had to be taken with FMU, and anything later in the day risks a false positive?

Saffron that's the advanced ones! Gave up on those as they've given me 3 smileys already this cycle! Normal ones should be done in the afternoon / evening. I think anyway!

Just checked instructions, it says anytime :-)

Ah, fab! Yes then, I would do another to double check

Before I was temping I'd keep doing OPKs for up to 4 days after the last positive just to confirm it wasn't a false positive. That's the ic ones right enough.
I'd keep doing them and it wouldn't hurt to start temping again just incase.

Thanks. What do you both mean about confirming its not a false positive? Is your thinking if it stays positive for days on end its false or?

Sorry pep what I meant was that incase I got a positive, my body geared up but didn't actually release the egg and then tried again a couple of days later.

Thanks, I understand :-) I got another smile this morning, hopefully not being fooled but think this might be the real deal. I get false positives on the advanced but have never had a smile on these before! Plus sore BBs etc is something I recognise from when I think I've ovulated before.
