Haha this made me laugh. I haven’t tested at home since 12 dpo but had a urine test at the doctors at 17 or 18 dpo. I’ve been good about not testing but my first appt isn’t until im 8 weeks and a few days, which is a long time to wait! I’ve been thinking about getting some of the digital week estimators just to see the 3+ but… I know I should just chill and wait. Thanks for the reminder!

@PatientBee:  oh my goodness girly you crack me up. I took two test. (yes, I stopped at two becuase the cheapest one I can find near me is $14!) anyways… I took two tests, the first there was a line there it looked similar to the control line but maybe just slightly darker if you stared at it long enough, I showed my SO and a few days later he said I should take the other test just for fun to make sure so I did. The line was so dark and so wide it was about 4x as bright as the control. His response was “No need to doubt that one, you are pregnant as h*ll” I haven’t tested sense that day but I think if they were more readily available for me I would probably be in your boat.

@PatientBee:  Oh gosh, I am right there with you. I just took my last test this morning and I swear I am not taking ANY more. It’s just too much worrying. In general I think that having a lot of information about one’s body is helpful (I run with a GPS watch and charted for 6 months before we TTC, for example) BUT it definitely gets to a point where it’s just not worth the anxiety!

My feeling deep in my gut is that everything is going to go Just Fine with this pregnancy (and it will be a girl) but it’s so easy to get carried away POAS and googling miscarriage statistics! We should form a “back away from Google” pact!

Here are 6 of mine. There were another 3 after this before I put the tests away for good! I know how it feels 🙂
