close to +opk, but not quite?

Postby Demi10 » Mon Apr 23, 2012 2:11 pm

Hello ladies :)

I have been using OPK's and got a couple almost +'s around the right time but never dark as or darker than the control line. Now theyre lighter again.... I should be Oing tomorrow but nothin.

Does that mean no O or that the OPK just didnt pick it up?

this happned to me too. the only reason why I caught it was because I was using opks to detect possible pregnancy. I had very very light lines, then one day I had triple dark results, still not a positive by opk standards, but it was darker than what I had been getting,

about 3 days later, cramping started in my left side...so it might have been a surge for me, but not necessarily a positive for the opk.

My OPKs have done something like that. I get a few days of almost +, then they go really light again. And a day or two later, I get a super dark true positive. I think you should keep testing, just in case you haven't surged yet.

This is why I like charting. Temps confirm it when you O, so you're not left wondering if you're still waiting to O or if you missed your surge.

Yeah I'm definitely confused. It's really frustrating me because I felt like i o'd early on like cd8 judging from cm and o cramps. I didnt think it was possi le so I bought opks to make sure and now its looking like I might have o'd early.
