They all look -ive to me too. With OPK's it all about timing, timing and timing.

Not sure if I've shown you this site before...
I think it has some really comprehensive advice.

Most manufacturers recommend testing once a day in the afternoon or early evening. As you know OPK's are not like HPT's. With an HPT a faint positive is a positive, with OPK's a faint positive is a negative.

OPK's pick up LH which is made by your body in the morning, but LH won't filter through into your wee-wee until much later, hence why they recommend testing later. They also recommend doing the test at the same time each day, and to not pee for 2 hours before the test.

I don't know if all this blurb is helpful, I'm sure you've read the instructions a 1,000,000 times, but there's so much to remember and I know I overlooked loads of things, and still do!

I also wondered if you'd looked into a fertility monitor. It take the guesswork out of looking for the surge, I used one for about a year and it was great (better than OPK's), and when you get PG you can always sell it here or on eBay!

Hoping you get some answers soon
