@Mrs.Metalm:  I totally get it! It’s exciting getting to know your body and knowing that it’s doing what it’s suppose to be doing. When I got my first + opk I was sooo excited. I also temped for 3 months to confirm O. Now that I have an idea of when O occurrs I use the opk strips around that time and chart CM … so far so good.  Good luck and hope you get your BFP real soon!

 @Mrs.Metalm:  Ooooh nice strips, thanks for sharing! Today is CD9 and I’m about to go buy my first OPKs ever but was gonna start on CD11 since my cycle is usually 28 days. Since I won’t be using them everyday, I was gonna splurge on the digis too. You really recommend them?

We probably won’t be TTC for at least a few months as DD just turned one & I just returned to work but I’m spending an awful lot of time on these boards and getting excited. I’m going to at least try to get to know my cycles a little better in the meantime Wink but tbh, our timeline may or may not change depending on if I get a +opk, lol

@Mrs.Metalm:  i was SO excited the first time I got a +OPK. I was like, “this is a great sign, it means things are working!” – and I have a ton of pictures I saved from them too. Happy baby making!

Positive OPK’s are very exciting!  Escpecially seeing the progression of the line getting darker!  I used to keep all of mine to reference, but now I just photograph them after each cycle and move on.  Haha, I love research.

Have fun and good luck!

Just a note – you should use the clearblue digital opk monitors everyday!  The monitor tells you when your LH is high, and ‘remembers’ your LH level from the day before and compares it to the current day to tell if you are surging.  If you only use the digital on the day of your surge you could get a false negative!

 

you could also try the clearblue advanced, which I like.  It gives you a couple of ‘high’ days before switching to ‘peak’.
