UPDATE: ! Digi OPKS?

Hi!
So im totally bummed now... I had that pos OPK, and then I did another and it was even darker.. theN i was at safeway and they had the digis 50% off so I HAD to get them, and so only paid 16.92 (which still seems like a lot but... whatever! worth a happy face) UMM took it, NO HAPPY FACE :(:(:(
Soo.. what should I do?? Use more, or do you think its too late? save them for next? ergh! I want a happppy face!!

YAY!! Kept trying the digi because all of the IC's seemed soo positive anddd::

My first happy face!! yay!! Its funny how the happy face... gives me more of a happy face! haha then just seeing the pos lines does!! woohoo!!!!

Oh no!! I am so sorry you didn't get your happy face. I don't know anything about the digi OPKs. I have never used them. But maybe they are just a little more sensitive than the ones you were using. I would try again later and even try tomorrow and see what happens. Good luck!!

Hold your pee for 4 hours and then try the digi again. It could have been a bad test. I'm hoping that was the case!

I've heard that digital OPKs aren't as sensitive as ICs.

For me, I got a positive IC and a smiley face on CD 23 but I didn't actually O until CD 30. I never got a smiley face again after the first one but lots of positive ICs so I wouldn't put too much stock on the digital OPKs. Wink

Some people won't get a positive digi opk. You can try testing again with one later today (4 hr hold) and check out the results. If its still negative, then go ahead & go by the ic's. I think digis aren't as sensitive.

I almost always use the digitals. But I'll tell you, I've had the experience of NOT getting a positive on the digital, but getting it on the 'normal' one, so I would say don't stress over it.

Yay Sophia!!
The one thing I'm missing is the EWCM.. Hopefully it comes soon to make me feel better about this cycle.
I also have tons of IC tests and only bought the digi because they were on clearance at the store bcuz the box was dented.. haha... And I was feeling really down about this cycle so thought a smiley face might cheer me up! :):):)

Ehn, don't worry about the EWCM, as long as it wet, you're fine. I never get EWCM and look at me now. Biggrin
