florence22:  The “average” woman with a 28 day cycle will ovulate on day 14. The egg hangs around for about 1 day. Sperm take a bit to travel to the egg, so you are actually most fertile a few days before and (maybe) the day of ovulation. OPKs measure leutenizing hormone (LH), which surges before ovulation (24-48 hours give or take). So OPKs probably won’t do you much good at the moment, unless you have had irregular cycles. I think your timing looks great.

OPKs tell you that your body is gearing up to O, not that you’ve O’ed.
