Not possible for HCG tests to pick up LH – that’s a positive pregnancy test, congrats!

I did hear that during early pregnancy you can have an LH surge, so you can get a positive OPK.

Your line is faint so I would guess you’re very early – maybe like 10-12 DPO (so if you had unprotected sex in that time frame I’d probably say that’s when you ovulated!).

Definitely a positive pregnancy test! HcG is only produced when the placenta has implanted, so yay!

Time for that doctor’s appointment!

Pregnancy tests cannot pick up an LH surge but an OPK can pick up HCG to make it look like a positive OPK! Thus, getting a positive on both!

jerseygirl8989 :  Congratulations! LH and HCG are similar so OPKs can pick up HCG as well. But pregnancy tests only pick up HCG so you are definitely pregnant! Cramps and light spotting are perfectly normal as well. Nerve wracking for sure, but implantation often causes PMS like cramps.

jerseygirl8989 :  My guess is implantation. When the embryo attaches to the uterine lining, it can cause it to cramp a bit. Some women have “implantation bleeding” along with the cramps. I did with my son, it’s very light and doesn’t have any flow. 

If the cramps come and go I wouldn’t worry too much, but if they are constant and never let up, may be cause for concern. 

Definitely make a doctor’s appointment! But as hard as it is, relax! It’s really super important right now! You’re pregnant Momma!
