Hi I'm on CD 16. I usually ovulate about CD 17.

This morning my FR test was darker, indicating that my lh is probably rising but not at full peak.
The digital opk gave me a solid smiley though.

Now this afternoon they I got an empty circle on the digital and the line on the FR test was faint again.

Surely that was not my surge??? Is it likely my levels were
Higher in the AM ?  I am hoping to get +++ results tomorrow morning...

I thought that once you got a solid smiley it stayed there for 48 hours and you don't retest in that time. It makes sense that your surge would be happening today then ovulation tomorrow.

Sorry about my reply, my post got mucked up. Again I've tested this evening and I have a smiley and a faint (negative) opk.

The digital opks are not the ones that flash when your estrogen rises, just the normal digitals that either show a circle or smiley face for an lh surge. The positive result only stays for 8 minutes I think I read in the leaflet.
