    Yeah that is definitely true! OPKs do pickup HCG!!!

    You need to go get a First Response HPT and hold in for as many hours as you can and then POAS!!

    mlks If you look in my pics you can see opks for a full month, inc a pregnancy (that failed) there's always a bit there so you'll pretty much never get a complete negative, but I have found that opks are faster than hpts at picking up hcg cos they're more sensitive and they're boosted by the little bit of lh that's already there. Some people also do get a small lh raise between O and end of cycle too. Definitely go get an HPT!! If you can't, if you've more opks, do another tomorrow and compare

    All Thank you for the reassurance guys. I need all the help I can get at the moment. Having lost 4 already I'm a paranoid wreck

    Cat - Definitely getting darker. Looking awesome! Ring your Dr and see if they can fax a BT request to your local collection centre. That way you can go in and have it done when you are able to!

    FM - So glad to hear from you again! New house could equal new bubba!!

    Bumblez - I can't believe how fast the time has flown and you are booked in for about 2 1/2 weeks away! How exciting for you!

    Mindy - GL for 2 days time. Can't wait to see the piccies of your little bubba!

    Silent - I agree with the other girls - go get a FR. YOu can get a pack of 3 for about $18 or so and you can then test everyday or every second day to see if they are getting darker. Then again you could just go to your Dr and ask them to do a HCG and progesterone test.......

    MLKS - OPK's do pick up HCG so I am keeping my fingers crossed for you. Are you going to go raid your local pharmacy for a HPT?

    Hello to all the other girls out there that I have missed. Hope all is going well for you!
