Ok I got my BFP Friday…no doubt at all, the line was bright! I took a digital to confirm and sure enough. Do not know why I feel the need to continue to test, just nice to still see pregnant to confirm I suppose. Hopefully once I have my first appointment, this feeling to constantly test will go away!!

@Britt214: I think I took a total of 10 tests… three of them were digitals so I could see the weeks progressing. lol Once I got the “3+” I stopped since there isn’t a better reading… 🙂

One, but I continued to test to see if it would stick and looked like it was darkening/progressing properly. Not to mention, I’m a POASaholic. 😉 I stopped testing once my test line beat the control lines on both the FRER’s and IC’s. lol

I took 1 FRER. a few days later I took a wondfro just to see if it would get a line (I’d never gotten one on a wondfro). Then since I got my BFP while on vacation, I took a digital when we got home. So 3 total.

@Britt214: Well I believed it after my firs test but I was terrified of a chemical pregnancy or miscarriage so I ended up testing every day and then every other day for probably two weeks. I then had the cheep wondfo tests and would test every couple of days. Yeah I was out of my mind.
I probably took 20+ total pregnancy tests throughout my first trimester; combo of FRER, Digital and Wondfo.

I believed it after the first two or three, but I’ve taken over 40 of them just to track the lines getting darker because I’m just that crazy. I had a m/c in December and my lines got lighter, so this is just kind of reminding me that I’m still pregnant until proven otherwise.

@NLbride: Wedding date twin! Ok that makes me feel better 🙂 I am at 4 now!
@dodgercpkl: Ha well my first test had my line darker than the control line so I wish I could say that would stop me haha
@Glasgowbound: Not sure my deal and the need for me to do it haha…
@Treejewel19: Believe it was probably the wrong word..I totally believe it, just a bit shocked still. We bd three times at the most so we were not expecting it at all. Guess that is playing a part in me feeling the need to test. Well i am at 4, so hopefully do not get to 20 😉 i know i will feel better next week after my appointment. I should be relaxed considering all of my tests turbed dark, quick but not sure my deal!

I took a wondfo and then a FRER to confirm. I kept using my wondfos afterward (and the remaining FRER) in the coming days not because I didn’t believe it, but because I had them and wanted to see the lines get darker to feel a bit more comfortable.

With my first pregnancy, I simply refused to believe it was true.
I went to the doctor to get birth control. When he asked when my last period was, and I wasn’t sure, so he tested me.
He walked back in and said “well, you’re definitely pregnant. A month or two”.
I probably took 3 more home tests before coming to terms with it.
This time, I believed it the second I saw that little pink line. Lol.

@Britt214: I am sure you won’t get to 20. I am an overly anxious person prone to worry and anxiety. So yeah I had to test all those times to make sure peanut was sticking around. The normal person would have stopped long before I did. 😉

@Britt214: I took 1 at night. It was faint, but I def believed it LOL
Then I took another the next morning, just to make sure (and because I bought a box with 2) before I made the DRs appointment.

Hmm. I have a chart of all my wondfos taped next to each other to watch the lines (hopefully continue to get darker). My excuse is that I have a big bag and they are going to expire in March so I may as well use them all now! But in reality, I’m nervous something bad will happen so I’m tracking the color change. Once it gets darker than the control, i’ll probably cut it down a notch. I still haven’t gotten past my expected period so I’m nervous, but the line is definitely getting darker each time. I also used 2 FRERs and have 3 left (1 expired though but seems to work just fine) that I’m going to do every 3-4 days. Clearly I’m neurotic.
