Pandorica, how can you tell when you’ve ovulated? I’m trying to figure it out. I got a high opk Wednesday morning, and a peak opk Wednesday night. My temperature hasn’t risen yet, and Ava and fertility friend are both giving me today as O day. I’m on CD 14, which is later than it has been (hopefully that means my cycle will be longer, last month it was only 23 days ). But honestly, idk when my O day actually is. How long after positive OPKs? Would my temp rise right away? I just can’t seem to figure it out...
I’m really hoping it’s today, because this morning has been the only time we’ve been able to BD this week. My partner has had a crazy work week and I’ve been so bummed.
Did you post your test in gallery?

vintage - I've previously used bbt and OPK to track ovulation (like over 25 cycles or so over a few years time) and many of the cycles I got the temp rise the day after +OPK, and sometimes I even got the +OPK the same day as my temp rise (usually digital OPK/monitor). So even though I'm not using BBT anymore due to sleep disturbance because of my fibro, I still count +OPK as O-day. But everyone is different when it comes to how long after a +OPK you actually ovulate and get the temp rise. Everything from within the same day to 3 days later after + OPK are normal, from what I've read. So some get the temp rise the day after +OPK and others can get it like 2-3 days after. It might take a while to recognize your own pattern. Sorry about your hubbys work schedule, I can totally relate to that and know how much it sucks!
Yeah, I posted in my gallery. This is from late last night right at the 5 min mark. I can without a doubt see a line, but need to see it get stronger before I can trust it's a real line and not some damn evap or something. Right now I'm waiting to test with smu since my fmu were pretty diluted.

So ladies, I really need your eyes! Do you see anything on this pic? I uploaded it to my gallery as well. I had to dip one in water just to check for evaps, since I noticed that the strips had very prominent "lines" before dipped. But the one dipped in water were stark white thankfully. I saw that same faint line within the timeframe but this time it went a bit darker once dried. Right now I'm to scared to believe that this might be the start of my bfp, so my head is trying to tell me it's just a stupid evap..
