So i found out I was pregnant on Saturday and since then I have peed on a stick 6 times, I think I have a problem!!

Stop it. It won't show you anything, they don't get darker the more pregnant you are, you are just wasting money.
I was a total POAS addict with OPKs and pregnancy tests, but both times as soon as I got a BFP that was it, I stopped.

I tested twice. Kept wanting to check again but I managed to hold off

Errrrr, until I got to about 6 weeks, and I might have even still tested then! I was a poas addict, I liked seeing the lines getting darker and the CBD increasing in weeks.

Quite a lot but I've stopped now (6+2) because I was driving myself demented! I did do 2 cbd's which showed 2-3 and then a week later said 3+ which tbh I did find reassuring.

I stopped when the pregnancy line came up really darkly before the pee hit the control line. I'm not sure what stage that was, maybe 6 weeks in. I had loads of Internet cheapies, so thought I'd get the use out of them!
08/07/2013 at 19:20
I did 3 of the cheapies & then 1 CBD then I got the doctor to do 1 as well as well even though they said it was exactly the same as the ones I'd already done!
08/07/2013 at 19:23
Once i had a 2-3 CBD!

I did 2 tesco own brand and got really faint lines as it was a week before AF was due. Then i did 1 CBD the next day to confirm

I did two pound shop cheapies and only because there were two in the packet!

I did two First Response tests (as they were a two pack), and a few ICs. Think I last tested about 17DPO (4+3). I was temping and carried on doing that for a few more days though.
I did 19 tests with Isaac so up till about 9/10 weeks then randomly at 19 weeks just to see if it was positive. I had numerous losses though so I was a bit nutty

Haha glad to know I'm not alone!! I'm so nervous about having another mc or worried that I've imagined it if that makes sense!! I will try and wait until Saturday to test again so I can hopefully get a 3+! Then and maybe the I will start to relax...

I tested every day up until I saw a heartbeat on a scan (7 weeks) - I also kept my tests to compare lines and photographed them (some people even got the pics text to compare for me). After the scan I test alternate days up to 13 weeks.
I had lost 5 though, all of which showed fading and then negative tests before I bled - so I did go crazy!
08/07/2013 at 23:08
I did in excess of 25 tests and I will do again should the need ever arise. I used 4 cbds to see 3+ plus ic's, superdrug tests, normal cb's and other brands as well!
08/07/2013 at 23:39
I've done 6 CBD, 6 FR, 4 tesco own brand, a few cheapies and one CB+
I'm 7+3 and did my last one 2 days ago. Had a scan today and saw a lovely heartbeat so I think it's time to stop!

About 10 I think. Only because when I had the mc last year the tests had started getting feinter before the bleeding started so I was paranoid. My tests did get darker. I stopped when it got darker than the control line
09/07/2013 at 09:47
Just the 2 because there were 2 in a packet. We had been trying for about a year and AF was always about a week or 2 late so felt like I was testing every month while we were TTC. Think I got sick of the amount of money wasted on them so stopped as soon as it was positive!

Snidge and tp, if we ever Ttc again let's do it together, I can just imagine the million comparison photos!
I do remember when tp and mb used to send me comparison test pics and I'd compare them like I used to my own, send pics of my own tests at the same gestation
