    I would like to add that I never got a darker line than the control line. But considering I was getting no line for days on end, as soon as I got a line I went for it. But never got a line even close to as dark as the control line. DS is now 6 months old. Good luck!

    I forgot to say with temping you need to take your temperature first thing in the morning. So before you get up, go to the toilet, shower, make a cuppa, morning nookie etc. I keep my thermometer on my bedside table so I basically roll over, grab it and stick it under my tongue. Once it's done I use my phone light to see what my temp is and then I roll over and let myself wake up properly. It's supposed to be more accurate if you do it vaginally, but I think it's too much effort for first thing in the morning haha. Most people I know do their temps orally.

    Opks drove me nuts! Mine looked like yours pretty much all the time, I never got one as dark as the control. I had an u/s at one point that proved I'd just ovulated but the opks leading up to it still looked like yours. Even the expensive smiley-face ones (can't remember the brand name) never gave me a smile.

    Meanwhile I'm nearly 10w preg..... maybe some people just don't produce enough FSH to activate the tests, but still ovulate.

    I didn't use temping but it does seem to work for many people, can't hurt to try it. Good luck and try not to obsess (tricky I know)

    I hear you Emi! I can't use temping because I seem to have a continuous cold that throws my temps out of whack. I'm thinking about using the clearblue digital but since my cycles are irregular that could get quite expensive!

    For what it's worth, OPKs didn't work for me either. I tried them before we started TTC to figure my cycle out and never got a positive. But got pg first month of DTD and not worrying about checking if I was ovulating.

    That was a chemical pregnancy (very early miscarriage) got my period 5 days late so I am not testing next time til my period is over a week late.


    Good luck to you, I can see lines on both tests. It is all very exciting
