I am not being obsessive about it, just testing each morning and I only have a few left. Here we are at 21dpo. Yup, I am pregnant!

Nice progression!

Yup....I kept testing till I exhausted my stores, then I panicked cause they got lighter, read about the "hook effect", so I went and bought more to test it. (If you remember the post, the diluted test was actually darker).

I went through only about 35 tests this pregnancy

Yup, and I think you should write an article about it and submit it to JM to be published!

Nice progression Missy! Luckily I only had a few with me when I got my BFP, since I was traveling (visiting my parents/family). I went through all 3-4 of those, plus a digi I bought. When I got back home, I was getting betas right away so I didn't bother taking tests. And I was way more scared of a repeat ectopic than a chemical, so I didn't keep taking tests....

I only had one digi. I took it and was done with it . But I am not a POAS addict . I am glad you are getting such beautiful lines. Your betas are amazing! This is it Missy!!!!!

How many tests do you have left? Good thing you don't have Katie's stash or you'd be testing for months.

I am curious about that, did it come up positive? I thought Hcg was out of your system after the first 12 weeks and the placenta takes over- so a test would be negative.

Missy, your tests are beautiful! So thrilled for you.
