I had been getting super faint positives on IC's for a few days. I took a digital yesterday, and it said "Not Pregnant." I should have waited one more day to take it, but I wouldn't stop myself. That was my last test. So, I ordered a 3 pack of FRER from Amazon w/ 2 day shipping, so they could be here by Thursday, when DH got home. But, that negative digi wasn't sitting well with me, so I went to the store in the afternoon and bought a 2 pack of Answer tests. I got a + right away, but faint. This am I took the other one. Then this afternoon, the FRER got here........they were supposed to get here on Thursday!!!!!! I already took one.
I wish the lines would get darker, but I just need to give it time and lay off the testing. 2 tests left and I'm promising myself I won't buy more.
I tested 15 times with Caleb! I promised myself I wouldn't do the same this time! My reasoning was that I wanted to see if my hcg was increasing. A lot of the time, the testing did help to ease my fears since the line was darker each day. BUT, sometimes I'd get a funky test and I'd drive myself crazy with worry until I could spend more money and test again. So, this time, I'm done. I have one test left (I've taken 4 already because I had already bought two dollar tests since I expected them to be negative, and then I bought a 3-pack of FRERs when I got a faint positive on the dollar tests). I'm saving that last FRER until tomorrow so that I can see the line become a darker positive, and that's that!
You sound like me! I think I have a problem too! I've probably taken 10 tests already...maybe more. Okay, probably more like 15 when I really think about it. I like to see the line change. But, I don't have anymore and I haven't bought anymore, so hopefully I'm done.
I stopped after I got a positive on the digi. With my m/c in November - I kept testing and testing and got several negatives which prompted me to call the doc. I got a beta and it was like 5. I started bleeding that afternoon. But the hardest part was the worrying and waiting - so I promised myself this time I would not keep testing and that if something happens, it will happen.
However - I have already had two beta tests because of my m/c in November. So I know that I am definitely preggo and my hcg is doubling.
I am so happy to hear that your numbers are looking good Laura
Today is the first day I haven't tested..... but it's only 7pm here, so still plenty of time I had just bought a 25 pack of IC's, and my FRER wasn't very strong, so I have just kept using up my IC's I love watching them get darker everytime!
