they’re pretty darn close!  I’d keep testing, and keep BDing.  If it gets lighter, I’d probably keep testing just in case (the tests are so cheap), but really I’d still assume this was ‘it’. Keep in mind, your fertile window starts 5 days before you ovulate, so 3-5 days before your positive OPK… BDing now is a good idea even if this isn’t it.

The 8:30pm one I would’ve thrown out and used a new one–the point of the control is to show you that the test strip is working properly.  Still, from what I can see at the top it looks negative.

If i were to make a bet, I’d bet you’d get a positive tomorrow in the early afternoon.

jackie86 :  I don’t think you have O’d yet either, but are close. I was very confused with OPKs when I first started. But just for reference this is what my recent positive looks like. keep testing and I think you will get a positive soon! And definitely test twice as day as some women have a quick surge.

i used the wondfo brand test. You could always tell i O’d because the test line was always DARKER then the control line. But the directions on the test give off the vibe that the test line can be as dark as the control line to be a positive. Which makes me think you possibly O’d on 4/3. 

i’d start temping, itll give you very clear results on when you O. 

i put off temping cause i thought it would be a pain in the a**. But i actually quite enjoy temping and tracking now.
