Well, I don’t have any experience with the scienc-y TTC stuff, but it’s entirely possible you are pregnant. DH’s friend’s ex even went to the doctor after missing her period and got a negative. They said to come back in a week or more, and sure enouh, she was pregnant. Sometimes your hormone levels take time to reflect your pregnancy.

How many days is it since your period should have started?

OPKs do not detect ovulation, they detect the LH surge….so it’s entirely possible to have a surge without actually ovulating.  It’s also possible (rare, but possible) to ovulate more than once in a cycle, (having a surge but not releasing an egg is more likely).  I would guess you ovulated after your CD19 surge (do you temp to confirm ovulation, or just use OPKs?).  How many DPO are you now?

hollyberry4:  that’s why the clearblue opk directions specifically tell you to stop testing after you get the first smiley face. If you keep testing for the LH surge, you’re bound to drive yourself crazy.

if you are pregnant, it’s probably too early to tell. You should really wait a full week after your period is due to test. I tested the day my period was supposed to come and got a bfn. Tested again 2 days later, bfn. Didn’t get my BFP until 6 days or so after my missed period. Hang tight, I know waiting is hard.

Miss Apricot:  I agree with everything she said. If you were temping you would be able to confirm O with a high temp shift. Without that, it’s just guess work. You probably had an LH surge the first time w/o actually O’ing. Then a second surge where you probably did O on or shortly after CD19. So you are probably not as far along in your cycle as you think.

14 DPO is USUALLY long enough to get a positive test, but not always.  So don’t count yourself out yet.  Do you have any idea how long your luteal phase usually is?

I would definitely test with FMU tomorrow, then!  Good luck to you!

hollyberry4:  DEFINATLY! I had a similar experience …I didnt use OPK’s but was charting and I had wonky cycles. The month I got pg I thought I was seeing a slight shift but it really wasnt when I see it now lol….then it was normal a few days before my REAL spike and it was very obvious. So O ended up on CD19 for me as well ….

AF wasnt due until CD29….and by CD24 I was sooooooo exhausted and I was peeing like a mad women…enough to make me think WTF…and I ended up taking a day off work I was so tired. AF was due on a thursday and I decided to POAS on wednesday night just for fun…and I got my faint positive!! 

If your already late? I would be buying ALL THE PEE STICKS
