Does anyone else test (too much) for no reason?


I was wondering if anyone else tests even when they know it will be a BFN but sort of thinking it may be a BFP? I do it when I really know there is no way and now we have switched to the pull-out method recently (although I have no periods anyway, presumably due to BF'ing) I see it getting worse. It makes no sense so am I totally alone in this madness?

OMG!! Absolutely not!! Actually I've done that so many times previously. And those tests are not cheap. I have to talk myself out of getting one every month. We use the pull out method too so there's always a small part of me that prays for an accident. You are SOOO not alone. The only reason I didn't fall into that trap this month was bc AF came early.

I get the bulk packs off eBay, saves a fortune.

I have not had a AF for a few months so I have no indication but to waste test after test which makes DH think I am crazy.

I do that too. I haven't done it in ages as I really, really, really can't afford the tests at the moment. H2B goes on that I might be pregnant (I'm on the pill and rarely miss one so there's a teeny, tiny chance) every month and sometimes he almost has me convinced.

I'm so glad I found this forum, it makes me feel normal!

Am I the only one that holds them up in diffident light and tries tto convince myself there is something there when I can clearly see there is not?

I used them when TTC DS and I knew I was pregnant 3 weeks before a faint positive but I think that was more me than the tests. It is an expensive habit though, lol. Although DH insisted on getting a mix of ovulation and pregnancy ones then even though I do not see the point of ovulation tests when DTD each day while TTC. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/20-x-ULTRA-EAR...#ht_3483wt_905

Hahaahahaha I'm so there with you!!

I'm on BCP and never miss a pill, but still have bouts of POAS additction! I've not had a period in over a year (on mini pill), so I can't tell if I'm 'late'. Before xmas I kinda felt pregnant and did about 6 tests in about 2 weeks (I convinced myself that as I didn't know when I should come on, I wouldn't know when I could test!), and end of Feb start of Jan I was convinced I felt pregnant and took 5 tests in about 2 weeks again...

I'm gonna go crazy POAS if I ever make it over to TTC!!!

And the holding it up to the light, different angles, convince myself if I don't watch if for the 2 minutes I'll see a line!!

So far I've hidden this addiction from OH as I think I'd gone round the twist !!
