My guess is that you ovulated sometime early this morning.  Usually the egg dies within 12 hours.

@jholler25:  I think the blank face means that you no longer have the surge, which means you should have ovulated.  I hope you did and you get your BFP!

@jholler – just wanted to mention that today’s positive OPK could mean that you are about to O – remember that the positive OPK usually means that you will ovulate 12-36 hours from the first positive OPK.  so you will probably ovulate some time today or even tomorrow.  

also, you can get positive OPKs from the HCG hormone (since HCG is similar in composition to LH…but you won’t get a positive HPT from LH).  i’m no expert, but it sounds to me like your positive OPKs yesterday were from the HCG injection and that the positive OPK today is because you are now having your LH surge.

good luck!

@jholler25:  Slow down, girl!  You are making me dizzy!  🙂

Winniewolf is right.  The HCG can show a positive on an OPK.  If you inject yourself with hormones and pee on a bunch of sticks, you are going to get some wacky results!  Stick to what the RE says.  They know what they are talking about.  I used to worry all the time that I would ovulate earlier than the norm, but they reassured me that the time frame they give you is based on TONS of research and real life successes. 

I forget, do you have PCOS?  If so, your LH numbers are generally higher than most people’s at all times of the month, so your OPKs might not get progressively darker like a normal person’s.  They may be dark one day, and light the next, then dark again.  It just happens.  That is one of the reasons they warn that OPKs may not work correctly on people with PCOS…but we all use them anyways!  You WILL still get the dark line when you are about to ovulate, but you may also get false alarms too early.

If you had pain this morning, then you are ovulating.  Remember, ovulation takes hours.  So if in any given month you feel pain but haven’t baby danced yet, you still have some time!  But yea, that forced ovulation HURTS!!!!!!  Especially the first few times.
