I was told I'd never fal pregnant naturally and last year, low and behold, I did! Now, I am 13 weeks pregnant again and planned this pregnancy wth ovulation strips. They can be a little tricky to read at times. The first one you have posted is definitely not valid, the second one you're not quite ovulating, you want the second line (furthest away from pee bit) to be really dark in colour I.e the same colour as the test line or pref darker! I tracked my cervical mucus, when your CM looks like raw egg whites then that is your most fertile window, accompanied with your positive OT. Good luck and keep us all posted xx
It totally is confusing I know how you feel. To me.. day 13 looks the most fertile out of those. Notice how the line is very dark and prominent, darker than the test line. That to me would suggest ovulation in the next 24h. That's in my opinion tho and just based on my experiences. I highly recommend the OVIA trying to get pregnant app it gave me tips etc and told me when to check my CM. I know it's gross.. but when you have a positive OT have you recorded what your CM is like?
Oops just realised I said Day 13, day 12 looks your most fertile! Sorry! Also a little tip.. I got very very faint cramping when my egg was being released so you could keep an eye out for that too just so your totally in tune x
It's an art, not a science. Some people have a LH peak which only lasts a few hours so it can be easy to miss. I reckon you've ovulated around Day 12, even though you never got the exact positive. I'd stop testing for this cycle. As mentioned above, sperm can live for several days so better to get in to early rather than too late.
I found the Clear Blue digital dual ovulation kits really clear. Smiley faces, no squinting at lines.
Funnily enough, the month I got pregnant was the month I didn't bother testing! You could just try having sex every other day.
It's so hard trying to be so patient lol! I found that when I started checking my CM it helped me so much! Look on google images for the different types of CM, i know it's gross but it will help!! Feel free to PM me at any point, you'll fall in no time!!! X
