As a guy, what does Teen Kate taking an ovulation test mean?

I am all about Teen Kate. Also, I literally cannot believe that the same actor inhabits friggin Marc and Dash on Dash and Lily.

I wonder how long a normal episode of tv is taking to shoot these days? Four episodes and a break? We might get a vaccine before we get a new episode!

I think the ovulation test was a mistake and it was supposed to say pregnancy test?

You can technically use an ovulation test to see if you are pregnant but they don’t have a plus sign on them. It would be two lines and it is a much more convoluted way to find out if you are pregnant.

You wouldn’t buy an ovulation test to find out if you were pregnant. You would just buy the pregnancy test.

You might use one if it was just laying around your house and if you didn’t have a pregnancy test handy.

So I’m going with a post production mistake?

I'm confused, as usual, with the Vietnamese thing. I don't recognize people's faces that aren't on there all the time in the corresponding year. I should record it in HD so I can see it better? I couldn't read "ovulation" either. What year was that supposed to be? (Here I go again!) Did they even have ovulation tests then? I didn't think of this till I read these posts. Maybe she was taking one because she wanted to get pregnant by that mean guy? She looked like she did it like 5 minutes after they left. If it was a pregnancy test, you'd think she would wait till they are out of the driveway in case they came back in. I didn't read any articles about the episode till I saw it, just a headline - why they won't be back till January or something. I'll try to find it tomorrow. I've been trying to get through some DVRd things.

It was right there when I got back, so I guess it was supposed to be a pregnancy test -

I'll just do a new one instead of editing again - https://www.reddit.com/r/thisisus/comments/jwoml9/latest_episode_honestly_teenage_kate_taking_an/

Latest Episode “Honestly” - Teenage Kate taking an ovulation test? Am I missing something??? Weren’t they eluding that she was pregnant and had an abortion or did I just totally miss something?


One of the comments - "Preview shows her and Mark together and he says he really missed her. I think she is purposely getting pregnant and the reunion is very carefully planned and timed." So I might have been right? We won't know till January.

(Can I go to bed now?)

How did any of you see the word "ovulation"? I thought it was a pregnancy test & it was obvious that she had an abortion while her family was in New York.
