Ovulation Test Confusion.

I've been having a little bit of trouble understanding the ovulation test. I know for it to be a full positive the second line has to be the same/darker than the control line. But for the past week I've been taking two ovulation tests a day and both have been getting darker everyday but not a full positive. I was supposed to be ovulating today but today the line doesn't seem to be there? Does that mean that is has already happened or shall I carry on testing twice daily until I get a positive?

What times of the day have you been testing?

Usually 2pm and 6/7pm

You may have surged in the night and missed it. Did you DTD today? Any other signs of ovulation?

we haven't today but we did quite late last night. Other than stomach cramps on one side and back ache for the past couple of days I've had nothingsad

Hmm could keep testing. Perhaps your urine was diluted causing a paler line

Even though I took one at 2pm I've just taken another one because I've become slightly obsessed and the line has just appeared again still not darker but definitely there. (Everytime I tried to get it a picture it was blurry, Gross I know haha) maybe I haven't missed it.
