@graygodess20:  You aren’t nuts! I tested only once after getting bfp, but I only had one test left. I think I did it 3 days after bfp…I believe if you wait too long after bfp the line will start to look fainter?

@graygodess20:  Congratulations on your BFP and no your not nuts.  I got my BFP a week ago and since then have tested like 7 times.  My first appointment is at 8 weeks so I will probably test once a week as well just to make sure everything is going alright.  I’m paranoid about the whole thing as well.  Good luck and I hope we both have healthy pregnancys!!

@graygodess20:  I don’t now how many times I tested, but I tested a lot.  I don’t think you are nuts at all!  I don’t think I kept testing until my first appointment, but since I charted, I do think I kept taking my temp.

I bought a test that had a regular and a digital. I did the regular one, and then the digital one a few days later. I didn’t test anymore after that.

I had ordered a huge pack of tests online so I went a little crazy testing and comparing lines. I then decided that for my own sanity I needed to get rid of them. Since they expire in a year, and I didn’t want them to go to waste, I gave them to a friend who would be TTC shortly.

I took one every day until 5 weeks, then every other day until 7 weeks. I had an early miscarriage the month prior so this really made me feel better to see things progressing.

When I got my first BFP on a FRER, I waited 2 more days to test again with another FRER just to see the darker lines. I took a digital at the exact same time (mostly cause I wanted a digital to say pregnant) and then I never tested again after that.

Ha, I had the wondofos. I wasn’t ever overly concerned about MC, but I enjoyed watching the strip get darlet over the fitst few weeks, I probably tested 5 times. But after 8 weeks it wasn’t fun anymore, the lines gone lighter and just made me nervous so I stopped. In fine though! Confirmed pregnancy with twins via uktasound at 12 weeks, hearts beating strong at 14 weeks, I’ll be 15 weeks thia Wednesday!
