    I'm the same! just poas again yesterday and the test line was finally darker than the control, so you think I'd be satisfied. nope, I still have one test left in the box and I'm itching to take it. :haha:

    I was the same although I was testing every day! At 7 weeks my lines started getting lighter which sent me into a mad panic. I did research and read about the hook effect (where hormone is too high it can't be recognised)...thought it was a long shot but tested with half wee half water and line was darker. Line got lighter and lighter until I couldn't take it anymore at 8 weeks! Not tested since...I now rely on my sickness to remind me I'm still pregnant!! Just be aware that they may get lighter :) oh and congratulations x

    I've been testing every other day... I told myself that today is the last day, not sure though. I've had to stop temping because I was freaking out at my temperature sometimes dropping by 0.02 :dohh:

    i'm testing every morning to ensure the line is getting darker. with DS the line was darker than the control about a week after my period was due, so i'll go til then, probably.

    If I had the money I would totally run out and grab like 4 or 5 tests! lol!!! I still stare at my HPT's and smile...love it! Although I would REALLY like the reassurance until I see my midwife at the end of the month!!

    I've done the same thing. I'm in my 7th week! I had to test to make sure I was still preg. I've had so minimal symptoms I keep getting scared!
