I just got a positive test this morning! It was one of those digital ones, so I got to see the "pregnant" readout and everything. Somehow it makes more of an impact than the two lines. I should be due around Nov. 4th. This will be #3 for us, with another 25-month spacing. I've been having symptoms for over a week and have been testing daily for the last several days (I am definitely a compulsive pregnancy tester!). This was my last test, so I'm glad to finally get the positive, if only because I hate to think how much money I was spending on those tests!

Congratulations!

I used one of the digital ones, too! I thought it was so cool that I took, like, a dozen photos of it!

You can find me on Facebook. PM for info.

Congratulations everyone! I, too, got a BFP yesterday. I took 2 brands of tests simultaneously - quite funny! - just to be sure. I am sooooooooo happy. Already buying baby stuff and hot hip maternity stuff for later, even though it's early.

Yay! Congratulations to you! I went and bought a couple maternity things and a couple baby outfits yesterday too. I didn't want to spend a bunch of money, so I went to a Good Will that's just a few blocks from my house. For $20 I got a maternity dress, maternity shirt, 4 baby outfits (yellow and green ), a shirt for my DH, a toy truck for my DS, and a book for my DD. I'll probably hit the yardsales tomorrow.

Congrats!!

I used one of those +/- sign ones this time. My dh bought it and what is so crazy is a couple weeks before I tested I had a dream I took the exact type of test and it was +. I had no idea that dh was even going to buy that kind.
