Do you use an OPK in the morning?  I had that problem with holding afternoon pee (and drinking a lot) so always did a morning OPK, too.  The morning one would be positive and sometimes the afternoon if I held my pee long enough (but sometimes the afternoon one would be negative).

I did OPKs morning, afternoon, and evening.  I had a hard time getting a positive unless i held my urine for at least 3 hours, so mornings always worked best for me.  I know the surge starts in the afternoon, but for me, I sometimes wouldn’t get a surge until 10 p.m. at night or first thing in the morning (due to diluted urine, I think).

Are you not getting a second stripe at all? or just not getting one dark enough to be considered +?

My lines would typically fade in over about 12 hours.  My dark + would first show up around dinner time but would definitely hang around about another 24 hours.  So I agree with winnie to try in the mornings if you’re worried about drinking too much during the day.

@ecomaha: Like a lot of others, I used to use a digital opk after I started getting darker lines on the cheap ones, so I could be sure if it was really positive or not.  That way, I got some confirmation, but didn’t waste using the expensive tests on days when there was no stripe at all!

Ditto to @ MerryC – I hated the Wandfos.  I used digitals in the morning and Wandfos in the afternoon (because using digitals 3x a day gets expensive!).  If I thought I had a positive on the Wandfo, I confirmed with the digital.  If you pee in a cup you can use the same pee for both tests.
