Questions about LH surge

In my honest opinon I believe I'm over analyzing things, but...

I've been tracking my LH surge the last two cycles as I prepare for my first iui in late August. This cycle I didn't get a smilie.

How long does the LH surge last? I'm wondering if it's possible to miss the LH surge or if I just didn't have one....

Additional facts:
I forgot to test on my first projected fertility day. I tested late in the day on day 2. I tested a total of two times on day 2. Day 3 I had some minor cramping that I generally associate wtih ovulation. Day 3, 4 and 5 I've tested three times a day with no smilie.

    Sounds like you have it covered AFTER you expected it but sometimes I have ovulated before...I like to start on cycle day 7 using the Answer strips as I can watch the second line darken...about day 10 I start also using the smileys twice a day...I like late morning and early evening. I was always able to catch it...my guess unfortunatly is that you may have ovulated early...but if you still have some smiley's left I would keep testing just to see...it would help to know this next cycle.

    Thank you for your response it made me feel much better.

    After further reflection I think I just missed the surge. I saw my doctor this morning for a full pre-conception checkup and he thinks I may have missed it too.
