cmoore793:  First, with ovulation tests, there may always be a second line. A second line is not positive, it just means that it detected LH. What you’re looking for with an ovulation test is for the test line to be as dark or darker than the control line. 

That being said, your test looks close to positive. Was it taken with FMU? Some tests specify to use FMU, but for the most part, you shouldn’t because the urine is too concentrated . You also usually get your surge in the afternoon. 

Day 11 can be normal. Your O date can vary from cycle to cycle. But you can also have multiple surges. So you could gear up to O now and then not, then gear up again later and actually O.

My advice is to retest later today because that one is so close to positive. You are likely very close to getting your positive. Either way, BD now because you want the sperm there waiting for when you do ovulate.

And final advice… like many others, I suggest the fertility friend app and temping. An ovulation test only shows that you have a surge, it does not confirm O actually happened. It is so easy to miss your window without confirmation. Good luck!!!

cmoore793:  I work nights too, so I completely understand! It messes with EVERYTHING!!! I also use the Ovia app. (Yes, I double chart on FF and Ovia.) I like the Ovia app because it offers advice on data I put in. But it doesn’t confirm ovulation by anything other than the OPK. But it is usually within a day or so of the FF app. The only difference is that without charting, you can’t confirm that you actually O’d.
