Anyone else obsessed by peeing on a stick?

Hi ladies, just wondering if anyone is as obsessed as I am about using OPK's? I am on cycle 2 TTC and I think I have now grasped how to use them. I did a clear blue this morning and a cheapy this evening. Both negative but the second line on the cheapy is starting to appear which I guess means I'm coming up to my ovulation day? Feeling nervous and excited, can't wait for my little boy to have a brother or sister! Lots of luck to you all testing x

Yep. I am only starting TTC this week but have being peeing on OpK sticks for 3 months. Sometimes I do it because I'm bored. I've tried various brands and know which I like and don't like. I hide the sticks like a closet smackhead hides syringes!!!

I am obsessed, only started using them this cycle and have done it everyday since my AF finished. Can't wait to get out of bed every morning to use another one.
Most days though the second line on mine has been faint so didn't think that meant anything?

I love Poas, sometimes I even Poas an ov stick when I know I'm not oving just to be sure! Thank goodness for ic's! I do not love bfn on pregnancy tests though!

Ovulation tests are best done in the afternoon. They detect the luteinising hormone which is present in the body most of the time, so you will often get two lines on them. A line that is as dark as or darker than the control line is classed as a positive result and you will usually ovulate 24-48 hours later. It doesn't guarantee you have ovulated though, just that your body is getting ready to.

I am supposed to be ovulating today but have had 2 negative OBK so guess I'm a little late this month.
