Has anyone thought of starting a support group for women who are literally addicted to taking pregnancy tests? I took a test tonight with a 99% positivity rate that it would be negative. This is getting ridiculous! Maybe we can help talk each other through the episodes where we can't seem to bear NOT peeing on a stick! Could sure save us alot of money and disappointment. :)

  • Oh Girl! Let me tell you, when I was trying to get pregnant... thats all I did. I took a pregnancy test at least twice a week until my ex finally brought to my attention how crazy it was making me & left me with zero dollars. LOL I finally worked my way down to 1 every other week. I noted it on the calender & looked forward to that date! lol I think a support group for that is a good idea though! ;)

  • I'm not sure how to go about starting a group but I think it would be great. We need a few sane people in the group though (un-addicts) or we will be encouraging each other in a bad way! "Yeah yeah! Take a test! I wanna know now if you're pregnant! I'm too excited for you to wait! Pee on it! Pee on it! Pee on it!" lol

  • Iv seen pregnancy tests at the dollar store. For a single buck you can take all the tests you want. But if your saying people do it like an obsession, then I think they NEED to seek professional help.

  • I know this is really stupid but at one point I was convinced I was pregnant. I took a test like everday the entire week before my period (all negative). A day after my period was due I could feel it was gonna start anytime. I ran to the store and got a test thinking if I could just get one test to say positive before my period showed AF would go away and I would be pregnant. So I threw yet another negative test in the trash and started my period about an hour later. Lol us silly women!
