I will be doing this, but I am hoping for a line first. Nausea is here though. Testing on Sunday.

Thank you *kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!

I have to admit that I did it as well but have stopped now that I had some good betas and also have a few symptoms, but I do have a few left just in case my symptoms go away

I keep resisting the urge. But i'm losing the battle and I think I may go get a test today lol. I really want a test where my line is really dark and comes up instantly.

For the first time in 10 pregnancies, I did that this time and wish I hadn't lol. Got my first bfp on 8 dpo, tested daily and it got slightly darker each day then 14dpo my frer was quite lighter than the others. FREAKED out all day yesterday. Took a walmart test yesterday and today (15dpo) and it was twice as dark as yesterdays. WHEW!! I've banned myself from buying anymore tests.

I refuse to take pictures this time around but yes, I am testing...with not just one but TWO brands every morning! I have ICs that I compare with CBE. IC lines are about the same still but CBE are darker and appearing faster.

What's funny is that I have to use different tests this time around that the last two pregnancies (that ended in loss). It's like I don't want to jinx myself, lol. So CBE is the test of choice this time. I'm nuts, I admit it.
One-time "I'm NEVER having kids!" woman to mama of 11. Love living the beautiful life I thought I never wanted. ♥

Also missing 11 precious little ones here with us but for a moment.

VERY cautiously expecting after two losses early 2013. Hoping and praying my Valentine's Day due date baby sticks this time.

haha I think since Sunday I've taken about 8 or 9 but DH made me throw them out lol. One is enough for him but I need to watch it get darker--especially since I use IC and those lines take a while to be as pronounced as a FRER lol!!

This was the only time I seriously did this. I did like 10 them, with the other 2 pregnancies 4 and 3 times respectively. For awhile the line wasn't getting any darker and no new symptoms. I stopped testing for like 3-4 day and just did one today. It was finally as dark as the control line. Now I'm done testing

I started testing around 8 DPO and have tested every few days since. I finally got a darker line than the control line today!! But knowing me, I will still test a few more times in the next couple of weeks for my peace of mind!!

I think I took maybe 3 or 4 tests with Helena only cause the first 2 were so faint I couldn't really tell if it was a line or if my eyes were playing tricks on me LOL...but I stopped once I got the blood tests
