Opks Day 2 Update

I am hoping I am seeing progression!! The easy@home is most definitely darker, and I think the other two are slightly darker as well. So I am hoping I am inching closer to O. Would be amazing to see all three turn positive!! My ovaries are still aching, my boobs have started to ache, and I am bloated and gassy feeling. I am anxious to test tomorrow! 


My last day of SI was yesterday. My cervix has moved super high today and softened and I am producing a lot of creamy CM, but so far no EWCM or open cervix. Praying I O eventually though!! 

So I took the top FRER yesterday, and the second today (5min), along with the easy@home and Accumed cheapies. It is crazy the variation in lines. From what I read the FRER's have a higher sensitivity than the cheapies, so I can't understand why I am getting darker lines on the FRER and not the cheapies. 

Here is another picture of just today's tests. (10min) If you have used any of these brands what are your opinions on them? Did you find them accurate? Do you have pictures of your positives?

I had a hard time with the fr opks last month. They all looked pretty dark. I haven't used those other brands I don't think. I feel like every couple of months I change brands. So far I like wondfos best. They gave me a very obvious pos. I matched them with clinical guard brand and they were so much better!

Did you ovulate last month when you got the positive FRER?

I discovered the pregmate brand and will never go back. Super easy to identify opk tests and not one evap yet on the hcg test. This is my second cycle using them.

The Walmart brand opk drove me half crazy.

I've never used the easy@home opk, but their hcg always gave me evaps ☹️

That is so confusing! It's crazy how different of a result they gave!
