Opks and pregnancy

Can anyone help please I'm due AF in 6 days.
I ovulated last Tuesday/Wednesday have the opks to say I did 🙂.
Anywaysate Monday night/ early hours Tuesday I had some pinching, pulling and cramps ( thought it might be implantation) today I've had to stop myself from been sick twice whilst out. I have no pregnancy tests at home so thought right see if opk picks anything up and it has, both lines are of same darkness. Could this mean it's picked up pregnancy 🙂🙂.

Pics below of my opk I just done xx

Opks do not prove you ovulate, just that you got a surge of LH, which typically comes before ov. It might be that your body tried to ovulate, didn't, and is now attempting to do so again.

BBT is the only way to confirm ovulation has taken place.

7 dpo would be too early to pick up hcg (which opks can do because of structural similarity with LH), as most people implant at about 7 dpo.

Hope you get your positive. Still early days!

Oh and just call me a party pooper - but that opk isn't positive.

I'm 8dpo I deffo ovulated last week for sure as opks picked it up and had all the usual twinges that I get with ovulation. It won't let me upload a pic but that's wrong pic. On the opk in front of me both line are of same darkness x

Sazwest Wed 12-Apr-17 13:06:54

I deffo think implantation was happening Monday/Tuesday from the pains I was having. I'm just going to get a frer so I will see x

@Sazwest on your other OPK thread I've got to say I never thought any of your tests looked positive so I would put bets on your ovulation being late and this being your ovulation now. I would be DTD just to cover yourself anyway just in case. As other posters have said, the only way to really confirm ovulation is temping x

Sazwest Wed 12-Apr-17 14:07:12

@passmethewine123 I didn't post all my ovulation strips as u can only upload 6 and I had all ovulation cramps the lot last week. I definitely ovulated last week xx

Sazwest Wed 12-Apr-17 14:09:48

I know what your saying the pics I posted don't look dark enough, I tested opks 3 times a day and got my positive dark 2nd line just before bed. But it wouldn't let me upload a pic 😢. X

passmethewine123 Wed 12-Apr-17 14:10:17

Ah ok I thought you'd posted all the ones you'd done, my bad!

Sazwest Wed 12-Apr-17 14:16:52

No @passmethewine123 some reason you can only post 6 pics on here with 24 hours 😢.
I had all ovulation pains and everything last week I was in agony for hours.
I'm 8dpo today was in agony on and off Monday/going into Tuesday with pinching pulling sensation xx

physicskate Wed 12-Apr-17 14:20:27

I've felt implantation once. It wasn't agony. Are you sure??? I've had ovulation cramps that were uncomfortable (suspected cyst) and that wasn't agony either.

If you are in that much pain it might be something else and you should get checked out.

goldielocks29 Wed 12-Apr-17 14:26:46

I agree, ovulation shouldn't be causing you agony!
I don't think I've ever really felt it before.

Test with the frer, but if I was you I'd hold off! Constant poas drives you insane! X

goldielocks29 Wed 12-Apr-17 14:28:07

Implantation shouldn't be giving you that much pain either.
If it persists that severely I'd go and see your gp to be safe x

Sazwest Wed 12-Apr-17 14:39:58

@goldielocks29 @physicskate the implantation pains where like someone was poking me with a sharp stick on and off for I'd say a few hours then I had a pulling sensation which lasted a while but it woke me up x

Sazwest Wed 12-Apr-17 20:14:23

So done another opk and both line same darkness 2nd line a tad darker than control line. I've got a hpt ready to do with fmu with AF not been due for 6 days (5days tomorrow) xx

Sazwest Wed 12-Apr-17 20:14:56

Tomorrow I will be 9dpo also xx

Oysterbabe Thu 13-Apr-17 07:44:57

How did you get on Saz?

Sazwest Thu 13-Apr-17 08:38:59

Very very faint line that I could just see took it apart to see if it was still there and it was and made it into a negative and it's definitely there my sister and friend can see it. It was Asda test it came Up within the time frame so going out to get a frer now x x

Sazwest Thu 13-Apr-17 09:40:19

It won't let me upload 😡. Will try again I'm a bit xx

SorryForCallingYourMumACunt Thu 13-Apr-17 10:44:41

What did they be FRER say?

Sazwest Thu 13-Apr-17 11:43:43

Negative but it wasn't fmu it was about 8th wee. Where the other test was fmu xx

Sazwest Thu 13-Apr-17 11:45:37

As soon as it lets me I will post a pic xx

Oysterbabe Thu 13-Apr-17 11:55:02

I think this shows that the OPKs weren't picking up pregnancy hormones unfortunately. If there was enough hormone to be detected by an OPK yesterday at 1 then it would be picked up by a FRER today.

Waitingonasmile Thu 13-Apr-17 11:59:35

Unless you are tracking your temps I think it's impossible to actually know you have ovulated and the sticks only measure the surge. I also get random pains throughout my cycle and they are not all ovulation. Hope you get your bfp soon.
