    Default How many tests did you do???

    How many home pregnancy tests did you do before you started believing it.


    I've done three and still in shock and don't believe it.

    Heaps. At least 20. Minimum. But I was doing them to make sure the line got darker because I'd previously had a chem and was worried.

    I did 4. The first 3 then another when the urine sample I gave at the doctors said I wasn't pregnant. I knew I was though even though it's my first I just knew and while waiting for the blood test results I took that last test which showed clear positive and how far along I was.

    Three.

    I had to do the whole pack because it wouldn't sink in that it had been less than a month since we stopped birth control...and I was 3 weeks along

    I bought 4, did 3 and let my 4yr old DD do one because I thought maybe the tests were faulty...hers were negative. My previous 2 prg's tested negative on the HPT but the blood showed positive...this one everything was positive, except DD's test...she cant be prg

    One. It was completely unplanned so i was scared to do another. I thought i'd walk into the doctors office, he'd do a 'more accurate' test and tell me its negative. All he did was tell me its highly unlikely its wrong and gave me a referral for an scan... i was 5 weeks

    3 cheap ones
    1 digital to make sure the cheap ones were correct
    1 at the GP
    I think after the digital one that had the words "pregnant" it finally sunk in!
