Ovulation tests thus allow you to accurately predict when you will ovulate. A positive result on an ovulation test means that the woman will most likely become fertile over the next three days – with peak fertility at 36 hours following the LH surge.

This came from http://www.babyhopes.com/articles/ov...test-work.html

Not sure if this is a good thing or not, but thought I'd let you know.

Based on the pics, your surge was at 5 PM....so 36 hrs after that would have been the peak.
Thanks, I really appreciate that. I was looking online as well and getting all kinds of conflicting information. The 36 hour thing is def clear, and I am guessing we DTD around my peak. At this point, it doesn't make sense to be sad about something that's already done. I had horrible back pain that kept me up last night and its back again today, which is my biggest symptom when I am pregnant (lots of 3am baths preggo with each kid). That coupled with not "drying up" is making me think we might be getting a little Christmas surprise...
