It's normal to have more than one surge, that's why it's just a tool. I would go by other symptoms as well to pinpoint ovulation, then stop testing after the first positive. Hope you get it sorted out :)

 Thanks. I was going to stop testing but figured why not take a couple more haha. I think if I do not get a positive hpt next week I may try to do temps. Im just confused on what kind of thermometer to buy haha

If you keep testing you will drive yourself mad!! Lol I have a digital opk thing and it actually cuts off for 48 hours after peak. And the thermometer is called a basal body temp. It's with all the others at the pharmacy/ store. It's just more sensitive than the rest. I've never temped but I've seen on here it can be more maddening than opks do good luck! :)

 I found temping much more effective so I know that I actually O'd.  One that temp goes up for 3 days... I know we did everything we could for the cycle.

 We use the OPK's so we know when to start DTD like rabbits LOL

Get clear blue digital. I've never gotten a false positive and I've been using them for two years.
