    @jaguar: it did feel exactly like period cramps. I’m sorry you are in this stressful part of early pregnancy. I’ve been there many times. Try not to drive yourself crazy with FRER progression. It’s too much stress. Yay for a positive digital, and I’m praying for a sticky bean ❤

    @maybebaby: thank you lovely ... I appreciate every bit of good luck xx

    @Jessiemuller88: Yeah... the FRER are causing more stress than helping at the moment. I need to stop but #addicted

    With both my girls I had a hungover feeling in very early pregnancy. That’s how I was sure I was pregnant with DD2. Well, I’m feeling that now. But, I don’t want to think too much into it because I don’t want to be deeply disappointed!! But I’m hopeful!

    @jaguar: Hoping this is sticky for you!!
    Speaking of cramps, I totally thought I was getting ready to start AF when I was with my daughter. But I was crampy for a couple of days, thought for sure I'd be starting my period and was wasting a test, but it was positive. She's 3 now

    @CatchAFallingStar: eeeek fingers crossed tightly! when will you test?

    @jaguar: thank you!! I’m going to wait until Friday, which would be 15DPO. I don’t like the anxiety of testing, so I’d rather just wait it out.

    @CatchAFallingStar: Ugh, I hear you. Whyyyyy I start early, I have no idea. At least you know one way or the other by then.

    Not at all POAS or TTC related, but headed in for an important job interview today. I’m hoping to land a full-time gig at the hospital where I work now. It seems the warm luck from this HB POAS addiction club lead to success for @SamsMom for her job, so I’m selfishly making a grab for some of that same positive energy!

    I’ve been having period cramps and that fullness in the lower abdomen that comes with them, so that’s the only thing that’s making me doubt that I’m pregnant. I’ve had them on and off for about a week. But still no spotting. So 🤷‍♀️

    @jaguar: your tests look amazing BTW!!!

    This is NOT a pregnancy test. It’s an ovulation test because I didn’t have any HPTs. I have heard that ovulation tests can be used as HPT but I have no idea how. Is this true? Thoughts?

    @CatchAFallingStar: if you get a blazing positive opk when you’re not supposed to be ovulating, you might be pregnant. I don’t think that one tells you anything unfortunately.

    @maybebaby: ha! I’m ordering some on amazon... that’ll force me to wait a couple days! 😄

    @CatchAFallingStar: as I told Jaguar, that's exactly how I felt when I was pregnant with my little one. I was SURE I was going to start my period, but, it just never came. And I don't normally feel that way for days before the start of AF, so, if that's not normal for you, this could be it I have no idea about the ovulation tests though, sorry I can't be of help there!

    I think the interview went well. They are interviewing 5 people total, 4 of which also already work for the hospital part-time like me. I should hear a decision by the end of May. Thanks again for all the good luck sent my way today!

    Should hopefully hear back from my clinic in a few hours with beta. Absolutley terrified!

    If I remember right on the digitals, the control is the furthest from the pink cap.

    @CatchAFallingStar: as to OPKs for pregnancy tests, by the time you get a blazing positive OPK, you should be able to get a positive HPT.

    Basically LH and HCG are fairly similar in chemical makeup, so an OPK can pick up HCG (later than an HPT can pick up HCG). Best analogy I've seen for it is: LH & HCG are like twins, and HCG is wearing a hat. OPKs are looking for a twin, but HPTs are looking for the hat.

    @jaguar: I’m actually a wuss! I’m too afraid to test even though I’m now about 75% sure that I’m pregnant just based on the way I feel. I could be totally wrong! I’m too afraid to see a stark white test, so I’m just waiting and waiting.

    @Sams Mom: yeah, I’ve been Googling A LOT and keep finding conflicting information. Basically, I think it’s just dumb to test for pregnancy with an OPK because it’s just not definitive one way or the other. I’m just too chicken to get a real test.

    Ok... 14dpo hcg is 113. I have a history of crappy low hcg levels (in good AND bad pregnancies) so I am hoping this is okay. Bloods say PREGNANT!

    @jaguar: yay!!! Congrats!! My numbers at 10DPO and 12DPO with DD2 were only like 20 and 60. So, that’s a great number!
