Courtney about your O day I can't say much Bcs you had multiple positive opks only you can know when you might have O,for example me around ovulation im up for sex all day long lol and im kinda grumpy and looking for reasons to start a fight:))im super bloated and i pee a lot,Ofc i have ovulation pains and cramps plus a bunch of cm and that is how I know O day is close.Regarding those tests,I had a few tests that were kinda off,the test line was only partial as dark as the control line but it was positive and I counted as positive.

Momma - Thanks that makes me feel better. It's always been in the back of my head about macrobid but could never find research on it.

Danaa - Yes I was peeing right after sex! :oops: I never thought anything was wrong with it because I kept googling and reading that the spermies go straight up there. The last few months I was waiting a few minutes before peeing. Because I tried to just relax after. But this cycle I am making sure I give myself a good 30+mins at least before I get up out of bed. I'm giving anything a try at this point! So we'll see. It's hard when you've been so used to peeing right after for years because of getting utis. :doh:

Hi ladies,

Thank you so much. Coming on here and reading that you were all thinking of me means a lot. It's been a rough couple of days but today I feel OK. They have confirmed a MC my levels dropped all the way to 66. In a way, I feel like that is encouraging. MY MD doesn't feel that I'll need medical intervention given how quickly and how low they dropped and that's the route I would prefer to go anyway. Much love to you all. Means a lot.

Andia I agree with Danaa cranberry pills do work. I use to get a lot of utis. I would double up on dose if I felt one coming on the first day then single dose for several days and I'd get better.

I called Answer customer service twice today. Just to see if I got two different answers about the partially dark edge test line. I did get two different answers. One told me it was positive if any part of the line was as dark or darker than the control and the other told me it has to be the same thickness and color as the control line. So I got nowhere with that. I asked if I could email them my pics to see what they thought. They said I could so I did. I never got a response back. Thursdays line looks the thickest and they went quickly negative after Thursday. If Thurs was my positive, in the past when I temped I generally od 3 days after a positive. So that would've been Sunday. I've had cramping off and on for over a week so I can't go by that. If I did o yesterday our last bd was Thursday so I'm probably out this month if that's the case. I'm hoping I'm wrong but I won't know till af shows. My cm has been terrible this month so I would've expect the sperm to survive from Thurs till Sun. My cervix dropped today and I've had an increase in creamy cm today. TTC was a last minute decision for us this month and I'm hoping dh will agree to give it a go next month with my new opks. My hpts and opks came in the mail today. I'm hoping I get a response back from the ANSWER people tomorrow. DO NOT BUY ANSWER OPKS!!

Well I got this line before the time limit but I dipped a second and no line. That's a pretty convincing positive and I was so excited till I dipped the second. I'm going to dip one more just to be sure.

Momma, Is that a pic of HPT or OPK? If it's an opk, I wouldn't consider that positive because the test line is much lighter than the control.

If it's an hpt, I'd call that a bfp def. see a line on both!

btw, I never told you but I'm 1 of 5 so I think it's so awesome you're trying for a 5th! Love my big family that I came from and my siblings. :) I actually love out of state from them all and going back to visit this weekend so excited to see everyone!

Sorry for double post. Quick question if anyone knows and going to google as well.

You know how you get that dip in your chart when you O, or most people do? I get it, anyways. I'm betting I O'd today with the dip. By the time you see the dip does that mean you already released the egg?? Was going to try an BD tonight even though I still have some pelvic pressure and pain. Just curious if it means the egg was released earlier before I temped? Do you know what I mean? Or am I confusing myself lol.

Amaura, I am just so very sorry. I kept checking in all day yesterday and this morning to see if there was an update. I kept thinking of you. I, too, have a DS and wish for another. I am so sorry this happened to you. I am glad, though, that you don't have to have medical intervention.

Momma, is that an OPK or HPT? If a HPT, that's a BFP!

Hello All,

Who is HPT testing this week? Please let me know! I am going to try to wait to test until Thursday or Friday (or until AF comes). What do you think I should do?

Anyone else in this with me?

It's an Hpt but I dipped 3 in same urine but only see a line in one of them.

Andi you o on the day of dip. Temp rise is the day after you o. Give it one more bd if you can. I was an only child with the exception I had an older brother who died before I was born. I always wanted a big family. I did have a step brother and a half sister but I never lived with them or got to see them on a regular basis.

Whoz I'm testing everyday this week especially since I don't know when I od.

Momma - OMG an HPT!! I'm pretty sure that's a bfp!! I don't want to be the debbie downer, keep testing because, the only thing I see is how the line doesn't go all the way through and is on the top/bottom. I had that happen to me one month and apparently it was an evap line, which are common on those ics. Get yourself an FRER!

Whoz - wait until thurs/friday if you can! what dpo will you be then?
