Since I have this need to see my lines get darker after what happened last month, I thought I would share them. I think they are looking pretty good this time

No harm in POAS, unless you go bankrupt in the process! You could always buy the Dollar Store tests if you want to do it a bit more cheaply.
I did some POAS'ing too a week and a half ago, when I had some spotting with DTD. It was reassuring to see the test line was darker than the control line.
Test however you want! It's just pee!

I still have a ton of cheapie tests from amazon, and I still POAS every other day or so. I don't even have a valid reason for doing it.

I would so be testing still if I had anymore tests, but I'm such a POAS addict that I used them all up immediately - and I definitely don't want to spend anymore money on them when I know I'm PG now, especially knowing that we're going to need the money once the baby comes lol!

I totally don't blame you for wanting to test I had my own little progression going for awhile too. I love POAS! Your tests look great!

I POAS for awhile but stopped when the test line stopped getting darker. It was showing up and dark before the control line could even get started. Now that I've had two ultrasounds, I'm good. Although I did think about buying another test at Target today just to see how dark it was. I completely understand the addiction!!

I took one today just because I had one left. The positive line I'd really dark and the control is pretty light. I have to stop because I will get myself paranoid.

Why not until Nov if you are 7 weeks now? Seems like a really really long wait.

Too funny! I've never been much of a POAS addict, but I caught myself using my leftover HPT just the other day to reconfirm my BFP, LoL . This time if I had the extra HPT's lying around the house, though, I would probably be testing every other day, too!

Omg! I am SO happy to see this post! Thanks Elly! And other ladies' reaffirming responses too of course! This board is amazing bc it constantly makes me realize I'm not crazy. Or if I am crazy, at least I'm not alone in my crazy My DH literally laughed at me the other night because I was sad that I was using my last hpt. I think I've peed on approx 20 since my first bfp, and have saved at least 8 of them. Crazy? Probably. But some days I just don't "feel" pregnant and need to make sure, right?!

The test line being wayy darker than control line freaked me out at first (one of mine barely even had any control line at all), but turns out it's a good thing! So yay for those dark lines woot woot!
