So I had my first positive OPK on Wednesday evening, strong positive, came up straigh away. Had a big temp rise yesterday and then another strong positive OPK last night (below) ..
I was told in no uncertain terms on here the other day that your temp rises AFTER you O, but that doesn't explain the + OPK at 6pm last night

Different women have different lengths of LH surge. OPKs measure a certain amount of LH, so they cannot really tell you where in that surge you are (start, middle, end), just that there is enough hormone there to trigger the OPK. Seeing as you had a +OPK on Wednesday evening and your temp spiked on Thursday, it's likely that you O'd on Wednesday evening or overnight (the hormone can take a while to build up in your pee so it may well have been surging from Wednesday morning). The +OPK last night would probably just be the tail end of the surge.
Either way, no method is 100% accurate as it's common to have one or two random temperatures during your cycle due to disturbed sleep, slight infection, thermometer errors, etc. Even BBT is really only accurate within a few days.
