    @The_Future_KB:  I got my BFP at 9dpo and left for vacation out of the country the next day. My first BFP was a total squinter so I took a digital the next day that totally said “pregnant…” and then since I had so many pregnancy tests left over i took them on vacation with me and peed on them around northern eurpoe. It was totally excessive but it was really cool to watch the line get darker. My last POAS was 24dpo.

    I did for sure. I used the leftover ones we had and bought a few more cheapies.

    @The_Future_KB:  Here are my pee sticks from around the world. DH was like, “OMG when can we throw these away.” – I finally tossed them all out when we got home from our trip.

    I took SO MANY tests. Probably as many as @ThePrincessBride10612. I actually hid some of them from my husband because I didn’t want him to know how much money I spent on them… I just threw them out yesterday (I’m 8w now)

    Yes, I didn’t believe the first one.  I took 4 total to make sure.

    @The_Future_KB:  I’ve been peeing on them twice a day. You are not alone! I finally ran out, but now I’m curious, so I may go get some more! I want my lines to be super dark. I got my first BFP super early, so it makes me feel better to see those lines darken!

    @The_Future_KB:  Haha I only peed on one the day after my BFP just to make sure I wasn’t seeing things. Because I work at a clinic I went in right away and asked for a blood test and it was positive!

    DH found my stash and can’t understand why I am still poas when I have had blood confirmation.  I told him the digis’s with the weeks going up makes me feel better haha.

    @The_Future_KB:  I was out of control!  I probably pee’d on 30 sticks after getting my BFP.  However, when I was 5 weeks and 4 days, I experienced “the hook effect” on a few of the cheapies along with some red spotting.  Those two things freaked me out, so I stopped testing b/c it was counter productive.

    @The_Future_KB:  I peed on every stick I had left! I had two wondfos, six FRERs, and three Clearblue digitals with weeks estimaters. After my BFP on a FRER, I used up the remaining tests over the next few weeks. I even had two wondfo ovulation tests, and I used them when I ran out of FRERs! Just did my last clearblue digital late last week to see the “3+” result.

    My DH started to get a little exasperated with me, but I was like, “hey, I had already bought them, what else do you want me to do with them?” He did ask that I don’t buy any more, though! 🙂
