Hello, I've been lurking for a while but have had no reason to test. I'm ttc my second baby after having a loss at 16 weeks. I've been taking ovulation tests randomly and often and I needed to get a second opinion on if this test is positive. If it is positive, my OH can't get home til late tonight, is there still time to conceive? We only BD'd last Sat as he works away.

I'd say that's positive. But don't worry about OH not getting home until later. A positive OPK test means that ovulation will occur in the next 24 hours, so tonight should be ideal, however late it is.

It's also good to do the internet cheapie OPK tests twice a day, at the same time, as it's easy to miss the LH surge. When I'm doing them I usually do one around lunchtime, and one in the evening after DD is in bed. This month I got a positive on the lunchtime one, and by the time I tested again at 7pm it was negative again.
