Awww, yay Jennifer! Glad you got that out! How exciting! Crazy with the OPK! I have always wondered about those and how that works. I have heard both that you can use it and then that you cant as an HPT. Weoird!

Yeah I just had to POAS but I didn't want to use any more pregnancy test tonight so just used an OPK. I have no idea how they work but it came up pretty dark for a few days before expected period..

Parts of LH and HCG are chemically identical. They are broken down into components. LH would be components A and B, HCG is components A, B, and an extra component: C. So the OPK is searching for AB, which will be present with HCG. A pregnancy test looks for component C. They say it's not reliable because most people have some LH in their systems at nearly all times, so they will almost always get a line. There are also some people who, for whatever reason, never get a good reading from an opk when pregnant. I don't know the science behind that one, though.

Well I'm glad you explained that more. I was just wanting to dip something so I used what I had more of which is OPK. When do you ladies think I should take a digital I read the clear blue weeks estimator picks up 25 mIU. What do you ladies think I should do??

I would think it should pick it up tomorrow morning, based on the lines you're already getting. :)

Perfect. I would think it should pick it up tomorrow, but honestly I have never used one, so I don't know for sure. I just know that even when they say negative, you can open them up and find a regular test strip inside that is often just too faint for the little computer to read. I would think that it would definitely pick it up in a few days!

Yeah I may wait until at least Wednesday before I take one. I'm kinda feeling down I feel like my fiancé is just like what did we do... ugh maybe he will come around in a day or two.

Aw, he will! That first week or two can be kind of rocky because, yes, you did something big, and it's going to change, well, everything. But it's going to change it all for the better, I guarantee that!
