Hi ladies,
Just wanted opinions please as I'm new to this. I'm currently what I think is CD17 and I've been testing since CD10 as I'm only in cycle 1 so not sure if/when I ovulate. Every day the line has been fairly light but tonight I got this. Would you say that it is positive?
Thanks so much in advance?

Hi Poppy, I have seen pictures of stronger positives but mine never got darker than this! We dtd the following morning and night, now 10 weeks! Good luck x

Thank you for the reply Parney. I've just done another and it's a bit darker again. Feeling positive as I literally just commented on another post that I'd yet to have a positive so was concerned about whether I am actually ovulating.

Congratulations on your news smile
When did you test after having your positive? We DTD yesterday morning and will again tonight but a bit new to all of this so not sure when 2WW begins and when you start counting dpo.
Thanks again for your reply X

That's promising that you squeezed some in before the positive. I ovulated earlier than I had in the previous cycle so I hadn't expected to be positive and had no swimmers waiting!
Ah thanks, well I tested bfn 12 days after the positive, then left it to 15 days (AF officially late!) before testing again and it was a very dark bfp. Based on my early scan, conception is estimated as two days after the positive. Once surge is detected, the egg will be released within 12-72 hours and lives for a further 24. So you may ovulate tomorrow or over night, tww probably begins Tuesday! But everybody is so different, it's all really a big guessing game at this point, I know how fun it is to work out dates as it passes the time!
Sounds like you're on the right track, I was a bit clueless but joining threads helped! Hopefully you can update with exciting symptoms and a BFP soon!!

Thank you. Managed to DTD again last night so in to the wait we go :-)
That sounds like you've been lucky. Had you been trying for long? I'm not going to worry too much about it now - what will be will be.
Hope your pregnancy is going smoothly. Have you had many symptoms? X

I've been off the pill since February, so happened quite quickly! I'd had two cycles and current cycle was the first time we time dtd. Very lucky as I'd have missed it, only for opk! Have you been ttc long?
It's going well so far, barely any symptoms which worried me before the scan! Just tired, emotional and hungry! 😂 I had all sorts of funny feelings in the tww, with strong cramping starting about 10 dpo.
