    Hey huni x
    did you know that 2 lines on the opk dosnt mean your ovulating, the test line must be the same colour or darker than the control line to be determind a positive.
    if you have a average 28 day cycle youl ovulate around day 14 so id start testing from day 10.
    i have 34 day cycle so i start testing from day 15. but for the first month id reccomend testing from just after your period each day until the positive so you can be sure when you ovulate.

    The lh surge dosnt usually show in the morning so to test around 2pm, same time every day. many women start testing twice a day (12pm + 8pm) around their ovulation date to be sure to catch the surge as alot women have missed the surge by only testing once a day x

    good luck hun <3

    hey darl
    i tested at 3pm tuesday and the test line was darker then the control line and the test said there was no need to keep testing if this shows up it means iam ovulating in the next 24-36 hrs should i keep testing ??
    also since we started ttc ive been getting cramps not painful more like mild period pain on and off and it seems to be around my ovulation time its not somethink that ive experienced before do you guys get that or understand it ?
