Feeling rather annoyed...... vent

Postby Miss406 » Tue Jan 20, 2015 5:00 am

I'm sorry I need to vent - feel free to delete if inappropriate.

I miscarried my 7th angel last cycle, 6th January 2015.
I made friends with someone who is also TTC. She had a chemical, then another chemical and this month 'another chemical'.
I believed her in the first two months because I saw the lines she was on about, However I have realised the photograph she sent me of a positive test - is in fact an ovulation test. Women naturally carry LH in their bodies through out their cycle and it would be pretty likely that at any point in your cycle you get a faint positive. However with ovulation tests - they are negative unless they are as dark or darker than the control line.

She's stating though - they are pregnancy tests and she's obviously pregnant as there is a line. I feel highly frustrated that women like myself actully miscarry and there she is making up such a thing. Grrrrrrrrr

That's ridiculous! She thought that an ovulation test meant she was pregnant? I worry about people like that having children!!

If she is someone you can talk with, perhaps you could gently share with her information about how opks work vs hpts. If she doesn't get clued up on this basic info then she is in for a rough time - month after month! And i imagine you'll just want to tear your hair out quite soon if it continues.
