i wanted to hold out at least one more day before posting this thread, but im curious.
Me and DH are trying the sperm meets egg plan (SMEP) this month and BDing every other day. So far we have stuck to this pretty well, i ordered a pack of wondfos for the month because i have never done both temping and opk at the same time and wanted to try it out. I took a test this afternoon and the test line was dark but not the darkest (ive done opk in the past so im familiar with how they slowly can get darker)
i know the SMEP says to BD everyday once you get a positive opk for three days, then skip a day and BD one more time. Im wondering if i should start that today, or should i hold out one more day to see if the line gets a little darker like it usually does. Would you consider this a positive? I want to say its ever so slightly lighter then the control line.
*not the greatest pic, i know. i tried retaking it 3 times.
i had a somewhat restless morning this morning, so im wondering if i should discard the temp i took for the day. But heres my bbt chart as well.

hmmmm. When we were TTC DD, that would have been a positive for me. But now, while TTC #2, it wouldn’t. Try testing again later today and see what happens. If it goes super light, then that was probably your surge and it’s time to BD. Or, maybe testing later you’ll get your true positive in which, BD. 😂 So I guess either way, I’m on board with BDing.
ETA: I should add that if you get the same intensity when you retest, I would wait. You’ll probably see a true positive tomorrow.

I just edited to add that if your line is the same intensity later today, you’ll probably see a true positive tomorrow. I had 3 positive OPKs this cycle, with O confirmed by temp the day after the third, so you’ve most likely got time – everyone’s cycle being different, of course. The first cycle we did EOD we got DD out of it 🙂 it’s a good plan!
