I don’t know about the blinking smiley tests, but the Wondfos look like they are gearing up to be positive. I would test twice a day from now until you get your positive on a Wondfo.

I got no advice on the blinking smiley thing though lol those tests intimidate me.

Keep up the testing because you’ll get a positive soon! Do you usually o so late?

I’m not sure what your cycles are usually like, but when I started using OPKs my cycle varied between 30-38 days and I was really surprised that I didn’t appear to ovulate until quite late, like CD21 or 22. That makes sense given the longer cycle, but I didn’t put it all together until I could see for sure when O was happening. Keep testing and I’m sure it will be positive very soon!

It’s possible you o’ed earlier in your cycle…I do and have a cycle length of 28-31 days. A few months ago while I was at the doctor having an ultrasound she told me I was ovulating on day 11/12 which she said was earlier than most. Maybe during the next cycle start using the OPK’s around day 8 just to be sure. 

I have been using the first response and I have had great luck with them!

mama2beee :  Yeah, it’s possible. I usually get my positive OPK on CD11 or 12, but then my cycle tends to be shorter (26ish days). I would keep testing and see what happens…LH tends to be higher in the afternoon than with FMU, I think. You might also consider temping throughout your next cycle, as that’s really the best way to confirm when you ovulated.

FWIW, I was seeing a second line on most of my opk’s and then all of a sudden out of nowhere had one that was super dark positive. My cycles tend to be around 30-32 days now that I am off BC but I did’nt have a positive until CD24 this month! I think there was a delay in O caused by stress… Agree with the PP that temping would help to confirm!
