No Smiley

I got the Clearblue Easy Digital Ovulation Test but never got a smiley face. 

Rather than think the product is a piece of junk, I worry that my body just wasn't ovulating.  

I have my period every 28 days, so I am the text book example of menstration -- Linked to the Moon's cycles.  Full Moon = Period   New Moon = Ovulation

But I also have PMDD -- Pre-menstral disphoric disorder -- so my hormones take me for a hell of a ride.. but it is a consistant ride!

I am on 23 of this cycle and I am feeling all PMS-y and not preggers.
(Even though we never got a smiley face, it doesn't hurt to practice -- right?)

I take vitamins and drink orange juice for the folic acid.

An ultrasound of my lady parts said nothing looks out of place.. so come-on ovaries, start releasing eggs!

I felt PMS-y during my entire pregnancy. I was seriously disappointed in that. Waiting is hard. But practicing is fun.

I just don't want to get my hopes up just to be disappointed again. I think I will get another ovulation kit... and try to do what makes my eggs want to drop.

There's no harm in practicing! I don't know how often you are practicing but I suggest practicing everyday. Ovulation is strange and can be all over the place. I think it's supposed to be at days 7-10, but I know mine wasn't and I know my SIL would sometimes ovulate at days 3-6. A few times before conceiving I felt PMS-y and then there was a little bit of bleeding, but it ended up I was pregnant and the bleeding was the egg attaching.

I ended up having baby #2 at 35 she is beautiful and healthy and then I had babies #3 & #4 at 36 so I was already in the high risk range because of my age plus I have diabetes and twins is already considered high risk without all that other stuff and they are both healthy and very noisy.

Just never give up hope xx

Apart from these tests. Try to get a valid ultrasound for yourself. If you are pregnent.. please dont go for ultrasound for more then 4 times in complete 9 months.

The kit is easy to use. There is no guessing. A smiley face indicates when you are ovulating. I used it because we had been trying for 3 months. After one month of using it I tested positive!!! Good Luck!!!

I have used all of the brands of OPK's and this one is without a doubt, the BEST! The other sticks are so hard to read, you are left wondering, "yes, the line is darker?". When you have an LH surge you get a happy face, and all is good!!
