Hmmm.. I dunno, I'm a little anxious... My first time using OPK's so not sure if I was doing it correctly, even though I followed the instructions.. I started testing on CD 8 (just for the heck of it cause I'm impatient and curious!), and there was hardly any visible line at all. I wasn't expecting any, so I wasn't surprised the least bit. I tested again Friday at 10:30 a.m. because I was going to Napa with DH for his Birthday, and there was a visible line, but not dark enough to be positive. I knew I would be gone all day, so I took the OPK with me and tried to test at 2:00 pm, (in a public restroom), but unfortunately the counter was wet and the strip became saturated and I could not read the test.. was so bummed.. So I waited til we came home that night, and around 7:30 pm tested and saw a very visible line that was borderline positive, but I couldn't really be sure, and didn't want to misinterpret it but I was excited nonetheless.. I figured I'd test again in the a.m. to see if maybe the line would get darker and sure enough at 10:00 am the test line was the same color as the control and I was very excited, but I knew it was best to test in the afternoon instead of in the am, so I didn't want to get my hopes up and be let down, so I wanted to confirm again in the afternoon.. Well, we went to the movies and then some shopping and then to a friends graduation party, and I did not bring the OPK with me this time, so I wasn't able to test in the afternoon.. As soon as we got home, I went and took the test and to my disappointment the line was there but not dark at all... So I really don't know what to think at this point, but I'm really hoping I in fact did have an LH surge, and that we did the baby dance in time! To my surprise, my temp this morning was 98.4, which is definitely higher than it has been, but I did sleep in and took my temp about a half hour later than usual.. I guess all I can do is wait and see.. I am going to keep using the OPK in case I was wrong about the previous results. I can only think positively, as anything else would just cause me too much stress! =)

Okay, so I took another OPK this morning around 11:00 am and it was much lighter than last nights test.. Tested again at 4:00 pm and it was even lighter than the last...
