Middle one appears to be positive – What cycle day are you?

you may have a short surge. 

For reference, these were my positives:

Definitely could be a true positive. You may have a short surge. Keep using them the rest of the cycle just to see!

Kslim13 :  I’m no expert! But I know the OPKs don’t confirm ovulation…only a temp shift does.

Kslim13 :  Hi! It is possible to get more than one positive OPK per month. The month I conceived I had three lots of positives throughout the month and finally ovulated CD27. I was temping though so I knew to keep up with OPK testing. If its your first time using OPKs then I would keep testing for the rest of your cycle to see what your body does.

It’s possible that you surged starting the night of the 8th.  Once I start seeing a semi-bold line, I start testing 2-3x a day (morning, afternoon, evening) if possible.  Below is this month’s cycle which was a crazy fast surge:

CD10 5pm – line was bold. But I didn’t think it was as dark as control line.  I took a Clearblue digital and confirmed negative. Still BD’ed because I knew ovulation was imminient.

CD11 6am – Didn’t take a picture, but it was pretty much like the first picture.  Bold, but not dark as control line.

CD11 4pm – Wondfo looked positive!  Confirmed smiley face on Clearblue! We had a party at 5pm but left early to go home and BD, esp since Darling Husband had to work overnight.  

opk2

All subsequent strips on CD12 got lighter and lighter.  I also started burning up a little on the morning of CD12 and had a feeling I was ovulating, which was confirmed by the next morning with a temp spike.  If you don’t chart temps, I highly recommend it.  Temping and opk strips have opened my eyes tremendously about how my body works. If I hadn’t tested multiple times a day, I would’ve likely missed my surge too.  It does take time to figure it all out though, esp seeing your cycle trends over time.  I was super lost the 1st month.  Good luck!
