.... 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?  Ladies who have tested- how many home pregnancy tests have you taken so far?

4!  I took a cheapo test two days before AF was due and got a negative, since I actually fit in my bra the day AF was due I took an Early Response and got a +, couldn't believe it so of course I took another, went to the hospital and took one there (that one was -) and got another + at home.  Went back to the hospital and had a blood draw on Friday to confirm since their pee test was -, then another blood draw on Monday just to give the hospital a warm fuzzy that I was still prego ;-)   I've been off BC since 2010 so was really not expecting anything, sooo excited!  Only drawback is we PCS'd to Italy in May and was hoping to have been hired on before I found out I was pregnant but things work out like they're supposed to :-)  Congrats to all, need to figure out my siggy now.

2 at home tests that were positive and a positive blood test today. Will be returning next week for another blood test to make sure levels are rising like they should.

Brandi I wouldn't worry too much. Do you know how many days ago you ovulated? It could also depend on what type of test you used, some are more accurae at earlier dates than others. Here's hoping that your BFPs were correct!

4 So far...I will probably take 2 more because I have them and I need reasurance that I'm still pregnant!!  I had 3 positive tests a few months ago and had a chemical pregnancy, so I need to keep seeing those two pink lines!!!
