HI Kat!
I read your first post in your journal and it said you O'd (or at least got positive OPKs) a little while ago right? But how come your ticker says you're ovulating now?
Also, I have read that bleeding gums is an early pregnancy symptom for some women! Yay!
Another thing - have you taken any HPT? The reason I ask is because of your second positive OPK - OPKs can actually pick up early pregnancy because LH is so close to HCG in its makeup. Did that second OPK eventually turn negative or did you stop testing once you got that one?

Good luck!!

Judy, my ticker says I'm ovulating because that's when I was predicted to ovulate. I started having O pains on CD10 so I decided to test then. I had no idea OPKs could pick up early pregnancies! I did stop testing once I got the second set of positives.

and are bleeding gums really a sign of early pregnancy? I've really never heard of that before, but decided that I should post all things out of the ordinary. So naturally, I think I'm pregnant now haha. I know it's too early :/

When should I test?

Hi Kat,
It's not the most common sign at all but it does happen to some people. See this too: Common (and not-so-common) Pregnancy Symptoms

So the bleeding gums isn't a bad thing to have - at least not in the TWW!

You might already know this and I hope I won't sound like I'm trying to be smart but I personally wouldn't trust those ovulation predictors too much unless you have very regular cycles and even then I would go by OPKs and other fertility signs like type of CM. Temping is good too but even that only tells you when you ovulated AFTER you've already O'd - but with temping, over months you might find a pattern in when you O. I temp because it gives me peace of mind - I just got off BCPs two months ago and the temping confirms that I'm Oing! Yay! It also pinpoints exactly which day I Od so I always know how many DPO I am in the TWW.

About when to test - well I am not good at following my own advice but it's best to wait until 13DPO I think that's when you can get a reasonably accurate answer but many women don't get a BFP even on that day even with the sensitive tests (though they are pregnant). Some women get early BFPs, like 10-11 DPO. I usually start testing 10 DPO but it's so nerve wracking because I'd get a negative and then I would tell myself "oh it's probably too early" and then I'd test again the next day and drive myself crazy! LOL so it's best to wait until later to get a more accurate result and also to avoid the anxiety of possible false negatives (or in my case the anxiety of accurate negatives lol).
So test when you want but I wouldn't waste any tests prior to 10-11 DPO.

Thanks for the link.. I looked it over and will be keeping an eye on my "symptoms" for the next week or so.

This is my first cycle actually paying attention to my body and I haven't noticed unusual CM so far. I'm new to using OPKs so I'm trying to figure those out too. Only time will tell!

I think I might test on NYE for the first time and if it's a BFN (like I expect) I'll wait until the fourth.

I was looking at PG books yesterday too while we were in B&N! DH caught me and he picked up the book "What to expect in the first year" flipped through it and said "eh I'll just wing it" I haven't laughed that hard in a long time!

Lol Judy, I definitely don't need a reminder! It's all I think about :/ and I dunno about the ticker. I'll be sure to change it soon (and hopefully remove it after tomorrow!!)
