Are you like me and keep testing for several days to see if the line gets darker and get that reassurance, or do you stop once you get a BFP?

Wow - 14 times! Maybe I need to go use up those cheapies in my bathroom....

I tested twice on 16 DPO when I considered it an official BFP (FMU and around 7pm), and then I tested again on 18 DPO just for fun - and to see the much darker line.

Hey, it would be a shame to let these HPTs go to waste! Good thing I have to pee....

I test until I am out of tests. I have taken 5 so far, I have one digital one left. It seems silly to take it now, I wish I would have saved one with lines. My hubby would kill me if I bought more though!

I have taken 11 lol I just tested this afternoon with a dollar store. My lines at 14-15 dpo on the dollar tree were really light so I wanted to make sure the line was darker on them .

I am happy to say the test line is as dark as the control line now lol I also took a target brand on Sat and the line was super dark !

We have POAS disease hahahahaha

So far I've tested 6 times, lol. I like to see the line get darker for a few days and then I stop testing.

Thank you! I knew I was addicted to POAS but before reading this I thought there was something seriously wrong with me! Now I know I'm not the only one.

I counted up how many cheapy strips I had and divided by the number of days till my first appointment so I can keep an eye on that line just to keep my mind from racing. 3 weeks is a long time to wait for an appointment when it's your first and you're not telling anyone till a doctor tells you it's real.

I tested twice with first response and got really faint lines. And then tested again a few days later with clear blue digital and EPT (all 5 tests) and got very clear positives. =]

I tested on Wed. ($ store test) negative. WAITED a few days tested on Saturday (another $ store test) positive raced right out and bought the clearblue digital because I NEEDED to see the word.
Took a pic and emailed it to dh, that's how I told him.

I took two and then stopped when I got my beta. After my first m/c I learned that you can still test + after things have gone awry, so I am hesitant to go by the test sticks after the initial +.

Haha, it's good to know I am not alone! I will also test until I run out of tests. I took 2 the first day (a FRER and then a digi because I thought I was seeing things) and the last two days I have taken a FRER each day.

I have about 5 more tests, I might space them out to every other day now that I've convinced myself I'm really pregnant!
