It is if you missed your surge, you're not charting? you could also be getting ready to o.

Tons of EWCM is a very good sign that ovulation is coming.  Sometimes, though, our body does build up toward Oing but then backs down for some reason - usually if we are stressed.  Are you temping?  That would tell you if you do O, although it'll be after the fact.

But yes, it is possible to O without getting a positive OPK.  They don't work for all women.  I never got a positive OPK when I conceived my 2nd boy.  I do wonder, though, if I was testing twice a day - I don't remember now & I know the instructions don't seem to say that you should.  But since the lh surge can last for only 12 hours, you may not pick it up if you only test once a day.  I have heard of them not working for other women, too, though.

Definitely keep BDing!

When we O can change cycle to cycle.  So its possible you are Oing later than normal for you this time.

Yep, stress or other things could have pushed your oday forward, also if you are spending alot of time around a female you may have synced to her cycle. I would act as though you are oing and bd accordingly, GL

Unless you missed the surge I think you would most likely ovulate if your cycles are somewhat normal.... Do you test 2xs a day?

Sounds like you might just be getting ready to O. Do you have any pics of your OPK's?   Good luck sweetie!
