Hey all! Long (very long) time lurker, first time poster. I have been lurking on these boards since I found out I was pregnant with my son. He is about to turn three so I've been around a while ;) I also have an 18 month old daughter. I got pregnant the first try with my son, and then my daughter was a complete surprise, so I am brand new to the "trying" part of TTC. I'm not sure what to include in the intro so if anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask!
This is my first month charting and using OPKs. I had my IUD removed on 11-7 and got my first period 11-24. I began charting on CD 4 or 5. I know that things will be wonky for a while after BC, so I'm trying to be proactive. I have been doing an OPK with smu for a few days now and I have had the faintest line every day. For the ladies that miss the surge testing once a day, did the test line ever get darker or was it always faint? My plan was to test once a day until I see the start of a good line and then test twice a day. Does the line start to darken a few days before a positive or should I just start testing twice a day to make sure I don't miss it. Hope this isn't confusing, and sorry for being long winded. I will get better at this. Promise! TIA
