I took a test last night (top) & bottom (right now 4/13)..they look ready to me but I've never seen a positive opk yet. And clear blue did not give me a happy face yet. Is the test line supposed to be darker? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated; )

Test line is suppose to be the same or darker. Your pic is kinda blurry I'd say your there or real close. You may try testing twice a day now that its close or there. That way you make site you catch it. Good luck.

Also are you taking them with fmu? If so They can be really confusing. I'd try afternoon urine to get the most accurate results

 FMU is first morning urine. It is not recommended for opks as the lutenizing hormone you are testing for surges during the morning but is not in the urine until later in the day.

First morning urine. I kept thinking I was getting almost positives but then was told its because I was using first morning urine to test. Apparently the best tine to test is between. 4-6 pm. I tested around 3 pm. I guess we all Have some lh in our systems and its consatrated in the am so messes up the test. I wish they would say this on the box. I rushed home on lunch break to bd for nothing
lol

Whats wierd is, I got a VERY POSITIVE OPK yesterday from Anwser (the line test) and tested the SAME urine with Clearblue and I did not get a happy face either. :(  I will not be using those again because I KNOW I ovulated last night because I had major twinges, EWCM, and my temps jumped up a whole degree this morning so Clearblue can kiss my @$$.  I would go with assuming you are about to ovulate and get to BD'ing.  :-) Good luck!

Jessica, that's so odd. I thought clear blue digits are supposed to be real good and way Better than answers.
