Oh my goodness, Elizabeth!
I am at 6dpo as well today! I have also been thinking I would test at 10dpo, but then I try to talk myself out of it, thinking I will be sooo disappointed if it comes up negative. I will be watching for your post though!
About the OPKs: interesting because my cycles have been unpredictable lately, ranging anywhere from 23-28 days over the past 4 cycles, (but never the same number twice!) I started testing with the OPK on day 6 of my cycle, just by fluke, because I was actually intending to start on day 7, thinking my cycle could be long this time. To my surprise I got a definite positive on the OPK on day 6! (this was around 5pm). I kinda couldn't believe it for some reason, and decided I would test again next morning, to see what it said then (negative). This was kinda curious to me, and lead me to believe that perhaps the hormone "disappears" once ovulation has occurred? Tried to search for this info, out of curiousity, but didn't really find much. Perhaps someone else here would know the science behind it....
Good luck Sandy and Elizabeth!
