Is anyone still testing?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I was just wondering if anyone is still POAS to monitor progression, or like me because they have a ridiculous addiction:o my tests are in my avatar pic , 9-12dpo.
I had a miscarriage in October, and the lines never got very dark, so the progression I'm seeing now is a beautiful sight for me to behold joy.gif. Anyone else have pics to share?

Me!!! lol

Hello, my name is Laura and I'm a POAS addict!

See, I'm just making up for lost time...b/c I didn't test until 18dpo and got my BFP!!! lol

I have 18-21dpo and tmw will make 22dpo. I'll post a pic when tmws dries :)

Glad to know that I am not alone. Although, how in the heck did you wait until 18dpo to start testing? I started at like 7dpo.innocent.gif

Haha! Well, this was our 4th cycle TTC after a VR in July and I had had 2 absolutely crazy cycles from the stress of TTC. I was 4 days late once with symptoms like chest pains, heartburn, and nausea - it all turned out to be stress related! Ugh!

So, cycle 4 I was DONE with that. I stopped visiting my TTC forums, stopped talking/thinking about it, avoided pregnant friends, etc. So, when I was late again...eh...whatever, BTDT, you know? I couldn't handle the BFN again! So, I waited and waited...actually walked around for 2 full days with stupid pads in my underwear! LMAO! Finally, when I was 5 days late I tested :P

So, yeah, I wouldn't have thought I would be one of those people either, but that's how I got there! shrug.gif

I think I'm done testing, but I keep temping each morning to ensure my temps are staying somewhat elevated. I'm not sure if that's even relevant at this point, but it's become such a habit I'm a little afraid to let it go! Weird, huh?

Tallulah, I'm 4w3d and use a Wondfo every morning. I'm in the same boat. Had an m/c in July and want to see those lines get dark, dark, dark!!!

Well, here's to dark lines and high temps for all! Stick babies, stick!

Here they are! Bottom up, 18-22dpo. I'm a little concerned b/c they're not getting dark fast...in fact they don't seem much different to me. Thoughts?

I think the top is darker than the bottom. The top is almost as dark as the control line...

I think the top ones are definitely darker than the bottom ones. Those look great to me smile.gif

Yeah? Okay, I'll try to not think about it. :P

I also think maybe they are maxing out.

Starting to get stronger and a couple newer symptoms, so hcg levels must be rising :)

Thanks for the feedback, ladies!

Hey I am, but it's still really early for me at 3wk 2days (10dpo). 

I too had a mc (my only other pregnancy) and those lines were only slightly darker at 18dpo than the ones I'm getting now at 10dpo.  I want to see these current BFPs get the deep, dark color of the control line!


Here's the progression from 8 dpo.  I tested twice on 9dpo just for kicks.  They're a smidge darker in person.


I also did a CB Digital this morning.


Glad I've got company in the POAS world!

I've forced myself to stop testing.  It skyrockets my anxiety!  I got a very dark (almost as dark as control) bfp on 14 dpo and I'm just gonna go with that for now...lol.

Those lines are very similar to the ones I had at that many dpo. I finally stopped testing at 16 dpo, because it was stressing me out, and the lines were nice and dark anyway.

I tested again yesterday and it was a bit darker than the test I took 2 days before. I have one test left, so I think I'll test one last time at 5 weeks and be done with it. :-)

I think I'm still a bit antsy bc if I wasn't preggo, AF would be due in a few days.  That just plain makes me nervous.   I want to test past my AF start day, then I'll feel better and can take my crazy down a notch!

post #17 of 29

I've only tested once, because that's all the tests I had.  It was the night before AF was due.  It was a digital.  So I should be good, but the analyst in me just can't accept that one test couldn't have simply malfunctioned.  So I'll probably be shopping for some more.

I'm 23dpo and today is my last day testing. For the last five days it's been up and down, a little lighter, then super dark again. I think I'm maxing out the test.
post #19 of 29

I've tested 8dpo-today 19dpo just to watch. 8 was negative and 9 was a squinter and have gotten darker since.

post #20 of 29

I said I wasn't gonna test anymore, but I gave in today and did a test.  I was thrilled to see a very dark bold positive line come up instantly and it was significantly darker then the control line!  :)   I'm 20 dpo.
