Has anyone else got my obsession of doing HPT's?

Since our very first BFP on 22 March, I've done another 8 :whoops: tests. The latest being this morning. The test line came up before the control line lol a nice strong BFP.

My name is Susie and I'm a compulsive pregnancy tester! mmmmmm

RE: Has anyone else got my obession?

Hi Susan,

If I had the tests in the house, I would be exactly the same!!!! I won't buy them now as I was wanting to test daily? This is purly for reassurance that we do this?Don't worry you are not alone.

Luv D X

I've just gone and counted mine, 16 test during my first pg and 12 in the second one (I thought I was a lot better during my second pg, obviously not)!!!

The way I see it it we've all waited so long to get our BFP's and see those 2 lines come up, make the most of it! I could have quite happily done a test every time I peed :shush:
