The $2 way to fake being pregnant

I've never done nor do I endorse this, but something occurred to me while we were tracking my cycles to TTC our second born...

In my experience, Ovulation Predictor Kits almost always show a second line anytime of the month (especially with first morning urine) and most just have the brand name on them.  What makes an OPK positive is whether or not the test line is darker than the control line, not just the presence of a second line.  On a HPT, any second line indicates a positive. 

To the naked male eye, there is no difference between a Home Pregnancy Test and Ovulation Predictor Kit.  That means any broad could walk into a dollar store and buy both the HPT and OPK, then swap them out.  Voila! "See that second line?  I'M PREGNANT!" 

Kind of scary, huh?  Get the word out.  If you have a guy friend/son/family member making life decisions based on a positive pregnancy test, insist that he confirms the pregnancy with a doctor.

Just a very dangerous thought.  For the record, I already have my desired DH and children.

It makes me sad to be female because I know women like this.. Check this out.. Before I met df, he dated a few women and he did use condoms with her ( which sucked I guess cause he doesnt really have any feeling at all) so I found an old one still in the wrapper and threw it out cause we dont need those ( im fixed for now) and when i was looking at it, i saw tiny pinholes in the wrapper.. It made me sick to my stomach that a chick he trusted would do such a thing

Thanks for this PSA...is this really an issue? I don't think there are that many psychos tricking men into Believing they are pregnant. I mean, what's the end game here? By 5 or 6 months, the gigs up lol
