Positive OPK at Night?

So my ovulation is late...grrrr.....

I would have "typically" gotten a smile yesterday and ovulated today, but no such luck. Does anyone ever get positive OPK's at night or is this rare? I'm just wondering how often I should be testing from here on out. I took a smiley at 5:00 and it was negative and then I REALLY had to pee, so I took a cheapie at 7:00 and it was very negative. Wondering if I should take another later tonight before bed (maybe like around midnight or something?). I'm using smileys and usually get a positive in the afternoon.

What are your experiences? When do you usually get your positives? Thanks!

    If mine gets close to being pos I will wake up in the middle of the night to test. I have gotten positive tests at three in the morning before. I was so paranoid I would miss the beginning of my surge.

    It is actually very common to get a +OPK in the evening, mine always came around 8-10pm. I tested 3x a day: when I woke, mid-afternoon, and the evening. Never once did I get a +OPK in the morning or afternoon, my surge was always in the evening.

    Mine has always been between 5pm and 11pm.

    It's very frustrating isn't it!! Try not to stress :)

    Hope you catch it soon!!

    I'm glad to hear that. You ladies always make me feel better!! Here's to hoping it comes soon. I'm trying to hold off peeing for another hour or so and will hopefully test around 11 or 12 or however long I can hold it! lol

    I was nice and stress free until my smiley didn't come yesterday. Darn bodies! Why can't they cooperate?

    This cycle may be a bust. I was supposed to ovulate yesterday and still have not gotten a smiley. Today is CD18 and I've never ovulated this late. CM is little to none. Not feeling to hopefully anymore. TTC is so difficult! I wish my body would just cooperate! This will be my third unovulatory cycle. My body does NOT handle stress well, which sucks. Makes everything so hard.

    Only a couple days until I have to send swimmers back. Wish there was some secret way to bring on ovulation! Like jumping up and down *which I've tried* or doing kegals *which I've embarassingly tried*. Come on body! Listen!!

    mystical..... I usually ovulate around cd 14... last month was cd 19.... AND, due to stress I am assuming... this month I didn't ovulate until CD 23!!!!!! So, it is still possible.. don't give up.. I was in the same exact situation as you this cycle.. freaking out b/c I had no smiley and was going to have to send swimmers back... BUT..... I actually thought of an idea that may help me.... I remember seeing a truck that delivered I guess carbonation to the local restaurants (I think for soda taps...?) and I thought, I wonder if they also deliver nitrogen... So, I called the company and they did....... so I was able to have them refill my tank (I don't use Nwest b/c I have a donor that I really like at another bank)....and I was able to keep it another week... during which I DID ovulate... I paid $50. for this including the delivery fee...and the people were very nice.

    Just what I did and I was able to not have to send swimmers back unused...I got to insem, FINALLY (CD 22), ... just thought I 'd share that. If I didn't have that refilled I would have definitly had to send tank bank along with the unused swim team.

    I know what you mean about stress.. I am very much affected by it unfortunately... GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!


    Are you taking clomid again this cycle?

    Grapefruit juice seems to help me with CM.

    I'm not too worried about cm because I'm using preseed. I'm not using Clomid this cycle. Was hoping I wasn't going to need it (wrong, apparently). I think I'm mostly concerned becuase this has happened before and I don't want it to to happen again. I wish there was a way to jumpstart the LH surge in our bodies! I guess I'll just keep testing--and praying!

    And I have heard other girls that did the same thing you did--refill the tank. But I'm really, really hoping that it will come soon so I don't have to worry about that!! I kept the tank longer last time I had an unovulatory cycle and I never did ovulate, so it was a waste for me. Just need to ovulate! *thinking ovulating thoughts*.
