This is our 2nd cycle ttc. the last cycle was a mix of ntnp and ttc. This cycle I’ve starting charting and using opk. I started internet cheapes the day I stopped my period and each day then lines got darker. I’m only in cd 8 but the line was almost the same color as the control line so I used a clear blue and was shocked to see the smiley face. I pulled it out and the blue lines were the same color. I know that could mean ovulation 72 hrs from now. Ive been checking my CM and it is def not egg white. We ve been BD ing every day since C D 5. Anyone have a story similiar to mine? What was the outcome? Thanks, Bees!

Sometimes people will have two LH surges in a month, ovulating after the second one… So get your BD on, but also don’t stop BD until ovulation is confirmed with a temp shift… This might just be your first surge of two!

I’ve gotten + OPK’s on CD8 before. I have short cycles (25-27 days) and ususally O between CD10 to CD12, though I have O’ed on CD9 before. I usually O in less than 24 hours from the 1st + OPK, though most women do in 24-48 hours. 12-72 hours is the actual range in which O can be expected from the first + OPK. Maybe you are close to the 72 hours range and are an early O’er like myself. If you want to know for sure, I’d suggest temping. The book ‘Taking charge of your fertility’ helps you understand it if you’re interested and feel free to join the Charter’s thread on the TTC board. It’s full of lots of amazing helpful ladies it temping seems intimidating. It’s actually super easy btw:) http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/charters-of-the-hive-lvii/#axzz39MEwhGCv
Also, the lines on the digital don’t mean anything, they digital reader senses minute changes in the lines that the naked eye can’t see. That being said, I , like any sane person, obviously opened mine up and tried to see any differences. I found that when I was anywhere within a day or so of a + OPK the lines were equal to my eyes. After O they were different and early in my cycle (CD6-7) they werre different. I kind of treat digital OPK lines like a horoscope- fun to read but I don’t really give them much weight. BTW as to outcome I am currently on break from TTC due to unrelated medical issues.
