    Question OPK during 2ww?

    Just wondering if anyone's done an OPK during the 2ww.

    I'm 3dpo and getting antsy. I want to pee on one just in case but they are quite expensive. I don't know what one would tell me anyway, especially at this early stage.

    No symptoms to speak of except very tired and a bit irritable tonight. I also feel a bit bloated.

    Also, for those of you who are pregnant, did you experience an increased sex drive after O?

    Arggg!

    Why did I do that? Of course the OPK was negative. Even if my eggie is doing the happy dance with my DH's sperm, the OPK would be negative because it's too early for implantation.

    D'oh!

    This is torture.

    Doesn't OPK mean ovulation prediction kit? Why would you use one of those during your 2ww? Would it show a positive for a pregnancy for some reason? Or am I just missing the lingo....

    Quilotola,

    The OPK and HPT test substances that are similar in composition. Sometimes a woman will report a +OPK along with her HPT. Some people use them as confirmation but they aren't the same as an HPT. They certainly can't tell you anything at 4dpo! Silly me.

    I am 4DPO as well. I ovulated on Wed morning. It is WAY too early to test. I have had some faint cramps but thats it. I want to wait at least until next Friday!
