    Well I wasn't expecting this today. Anyone else take cvs brand opk sticks? I had to buy some today while we're visiting in laws and now I'm worried it's a false result because it's the only one I've used. I had good luck with them in the past though. Guess we have to try to cover anyway!

    @SweetiePie: @chypmunk: @HappyBaker: @bhbee: Thanks ladies! I clearly have no self-control and decided on a whim to test again tonight. 9dpo and cautiously optimistic! I'll continue to pee on everything in sight, I'm sure...

    I'll add the updated list Monday morning unless someone else wants to! Only have my phone till we get back tomorrow night.

    For me, today is CD26, the past three cycles I've spotted on day 26 and AF has started that night. So far no spotting today so I'm still holding out hope!

    I took an FRER (not digital) this afternoon and there was definitely a second line - super faint, but no question it's there. I took a digital (same brand - first response) about an hour later and it was negative. I think, but am not sure, that I'm 11dpo. AF due in 2 days based on 28 day cycle but my cycle is usually 25-26 days (last cycle was 22 days, ugh). Any chance the digital will turn positive? Or can there be a fluke false positive with the non-digital FRER?

    @Shybee23: I see the line! But I think it's really early since it's so faint. I'd take a digi again in two days or so if you want to see a positive there. They have a higher threshold to turn positive.

    Does the line look pink in person? Did it show up in the time window? Sometimes there are grey shadow lines that are not real but those are hard to photograph, so I'm guessing that one above is real.

    Yup, it's pink and showed up right away - 3 minutes or so. Thanks for the reply, this whole process makes me feel like I might be going crazy

  24. HappyBaker

    @Shybee23: I see it too!! Congrats! The digitals definitely have a higher threshold so agree with bhbee retest with one in a couple of days!

    @bhbee: just did and freaking out!!! It's hard to see in the pic but it's definitely there! I'm only 13 dpo and only held my pee for like 20 minutes!!

    @Shybee23: @HappyBaker: love the lines! Congratulations to you both, so exciting.

    @bhbee: I think we have same days to POAS. I'm hoping we both get to join the April 2018 board!

    I'm feeling so hopeful about this month. Symptom watching like crazy but trying to keep the crazy a bit under control.

    I got a positive OPK yesterday (just in time to fit in some BD before DH goes on travel later this week). I'm still waiting on a temp shift to confirm, but I think my POAS date will be 8/22. Here's hoping my thermometer holds out for a few more days -- it was half dead this morning

    @HappyBaker: Congrats!!! DS was born Jan. 2015, too! (He was due in Feb, though...) So exciting!

    @Shybee23: I agree with others - wait a day or two and take a digital again. GL and congrats on that second line!
