    I've added another one from this morning - CD14.

    If I wasn't ovulating at all, would I see no lines?

    Not quite +. The test like has to be as dark or darker than the control. GL though! Doesn't look like it will be too much longer.

    I saw the cd13 picture, but not the updated one. The picture I saw was getting close to, but not quite, positive. I'd say you're gearing up to ovulate. To answer your question...unfortunately, sometimes you will see a second line that never quite gets dark enough to be positive or you might even get positive opks with a "weak" ovulation. I only mention the "weak" ovulation because I appeared to be ovulating (according to opks and temps), but my 7dpo progesterone was less than 5 (indicating "weak" ovulation...in my case poor egg quality). Are you monitoring your BBT, too?

    I haven't done much of anything else... I just stopped BC after 10 years of being on it and just tested to see what would come up! I just took another one after work and it seems to be lighter than the first two... What does this mean? I've aware that it might take several months for cycles to regulate or for AF to even arrive... Will I see lines appear regardless OR should I take this as a good sign?

    I always take lines that are close to positive as a good sign. There's always the chance that you missed the darkest point depending on when you tested (surge may have happened in between). I've been using the free charting tool on Fertility Friend for years (used paper charts before that). It's nice to have a record. If you haven't charted before you might want to look into it. It's relatively simple (take your basal body temp every morning at the same time before you get out of bed at a minimum; add opk info since you've got some; add bd days; voila!). Gives all of us something else to obsess over, too.

    I tested again after work this evening and the line is pretty much non-existant. I'll take a picture later and post it with the rest. Since I didn't get the dark, dark line, does this mean that I either ovulated and missed it or just didn't ovulate at all?

    Could be either. The cycle I conceived my DS#1 I sore I didn't get a + OPK at all that month. I obviously did O I likely just missed the peak of my surge.

    Often as your O time gets close you need to test mutiple times a day to get that blazing +.

    GL - I hope your cycles regulate post-BC quickly for you!!!

    This is the latest: http://www.flickr.com/photos/6929212...in/photostream ...I was having subtle cramping throughout the day so not sure if that's related or not.

    I was going to say that you might have missed the peak until I saw your last post! Keep testing! Not sure why, but sometimes women have a false start (LH starts to rise) and then ovulation is delayed. Seems to have happened to you. I get ovulation pain a few days before I ovulate. Might be the "cramping" you felt. Keep bd'ing!
