Help getting EDD based on LH Strips

Pretty sure I'm due late April however I can't figure out when I O'd. I thought I understood but after my brief call with the MW I realize that I just don't get it. Please help me understand!

Timeline:

7/14 : MC
Took preg test after to show negative

8/2 -8/7 : Lh strips show surge

8/12 : neg preg test
8/13 : positive FRER

So is 8/2 the day I O'd?

Would that make today, 8/17, 17dpo?

You had 6 days of positive OPKs and then a positive HPT 5 days later?

Re: Help getting EDD based on LH Strips

That's why I'm completely confused! It was my first time using OPK, they were expired maybe they were wrong? Is 6 Lh surge days what looks wrong?

Thought perhaps I conceived on the 3rd and then 10 days later (13th) had the positive. Is that about right?

I had two negative test after the MC. And since the 13th I've taken 5 with BFP. Going to take another tomorrow because I'm freaking out a bit

On the opks, was the test line darker than the control line on all of them? Or were there just two lines?

I think it was just two lines but can't remember for sure. On the 1st is was lighter but I wasn't paying attention to if it was darker. Darn it! Well I suppose time will tell! It just makes edd difficult. I couldn't have O'd much later than the 3rd to get a BFP on the 13th

That could be the problem. Opks are different from pg tests. The test line HAS to be as dark or darker than the control line to be considered positive. Two lines don't count otherwise.

You'll probably need an ultrasound to date the pregnancy. Your doc will probably do one anyway since there's no LMP to go by.

Re: Help getting EDD based on LH Strips

From my experience (and from what I've observed in my years of TTC) you normally get a positive 10 days after conception. Since the female egg can only live at the most 24hrs then I would say since since you had a negative test on the 12th and a positive on the 13th that you O'd on the 3rd. That would put your EDD at April 25th give or take a day or two at the most!

Re: Help getting EDD based on LH Strips

Just to throw in the craziness of my odd cycle. I got pos OPKs for 4 days. The test line was as dark or darker on all 4 days. The last positive was on CD 17, so I should have 'o'ed on or around CD 18. I think I 'o'ed on CD 16 due to the pain, which would explain the 2 day descrepency in my EDD and what the chart says. Based on LMP it is even more off. I got a positive test on CD 27, which if you go by OPKs would be 9 DPO after several days of spotting. I always get inplant bleeds.

Well - when I got my last 2 dating ultra sounds done the EDD went from April 7th - based on EDD/possible ovulation to April 12th. Last Friday I mesured 5 weeks 4 days and today I was 6 weeks 4 days on the dot. You MUST have a dating ultrasound to get it right. An early u/s will tell you the correct EDD. OPKs do not always work right for everyone. They are way off for me, as well as using my LMP.
