I know it's my own fault, but I can't help but start testing even a few days after I ovulate.  All it does is depress me more, but I just can't seem to help it.  How do I stop this insanity?  If my husband knew how much I was spending on HPTs he'd be so mad.  Ugh!

I don't know, but let me know when you figure it out! :)
Over time I've been able to ween myself away from testing too early
 but I still usually test starting at 9dpo.  I don't even have Internet
 cheapies to test with! I'm going to buy some wondfos when AF shows
 today so I can cheaply feed my addiction.
I know other girls avoid having tests at all in their house. I'm not
 one of those girls. :)
