How Many HPTs Did you Take...

.... before you were convinced you were really pregnant?  I could never take just one and I think I averaged about 3 for each of my pregnancies.  How about you?  How many home pregnancy tests did you take?

I only took 1 test.  I took a digital one, so that there wouldn't be a question as to whether a line was there or not.  :-)

I took 5 (in consecutive days) but I was convinced I was pregnant. I just like see the line and I saved my digital for last. There is NOTHING like seeing the word "pregnant" on that test!

I think I ended up taking 5. I wanted to see them get darker. Then when I ran out of HPTs...I did bust out some OPKs. haha. I think im still in shock a bit and I would totally take more if I had them. I must stay away from Walmart!

Two. The first was BFN, but Dr office called with low, but positive blood test. Took another a couple days later and it was a BFP.

I just got off the pill (cezarette) and I read in some forums that it's normal to have pregnancy symptoms when getting off it. But something inside me said that was pregnant. I took 3 tests and got 3 BFNs. I went to the doctor a week after my last test and did a blood test because I wasn't convinced... 176 (this past Friday) and today I'm 3,271. Soooo relieved.

One positive is all I need. Usually it's brightly, immediately obvious.

AF was a day late and we'd BDd on O day. I stopped at the dollar store for a few cheapies.

Before dinner POAS, 2 lines. After dinner POAS, two lines. Next morning POAS, nice dark lines, leave on the counter for DH to find. :smileyhappy:
