Ok Do you take test every so often whether you have pregnancy symptoms or not? If so how often?

For those of you who have concieved while BFing....did you have symptoms or just randomly take a test and find out?


I am a POAS-aholic! But I feel stupid for testing if I have no pregnancy symptoms. I have heard of mommas who have had no symptoms but been pregnant. I had no idea I was preggo with my 2nd until I randomly tested. But when I concieved my daughter I knew from the day of conception that I was pregnant...so I feel like if I knew from conception then I should certainly know when the time comes again...what do you ladies think??

      I am a 24 yr old Mommy to two boys Xavier O'Neal Age5 Malachi O'Mari Age 2 and one baby girl Laylah-Marie Elizabeth ! I have been married to my wonderful Husband, Quentin, for 6 yrs and our children are our life! We are quiverfull, and Lord willing, look forward to many more children in our future!!

POAS pee on a stick! I do, every 3 weeks, if there is any chance at all (dh travels for work, so sometimes I KNOW there isn't a chance.) I buy cheap strip tests, like $15 for 25 online. I've been super tired and super witchy lately, so poas. Negative. My little nursling is 21 months and still no af, so I have nothing else to go on. I am a NFPer when I have a cycle, but I've been getting mixed fertility signs for ove a year, regular EWCM all the time.

This is my first time bfing past 1 month. I am terrified of getting pregnant because I don't want to quit bfing. I HATE condoms, but I really don't want to get on birth control. My poor husband, we hardly have sex anymore.

So this is me...I am not ovulating yet and I have had the same thick unfertile CM for months. So I am just hopefully maybe I will ovulate and not know it! So I have been taking a test every few months just to check! I want to use NFP to prevent...it helped me prevent when I did ovulate back when my daughter was 4 months. But I haven't ovulated again since! :( (Now that I wish I would LOL)

I use natural family planning to space my babies' births, three of my four children were conceived while breastfeeding, and I have not taken random pregnancy tests.

Each time I experienced pregnancy symptoms I *knew* I was pregnant, tested for pregnancy, and had positive results.

There is nothing wrong with your taking a pregnancy test when in doubt!

I got pregnant while breastfeeding and did have symptoms, other then missing my period, so I tested (well, went to the dr for symptoms, didn't think I was pregnant because I was still having a full period). But I am the type to test every other month or so regardless of how I feel. Come to think of it, I actually have not tested in about 6 months...

Well before my periods came back at 4 month PP I tested monthly just to know, after that no, and I got pregnant at 8 months.

I've only taken tests twice while breastfeeding, after we had sex when I suspected we were fertile. Both tests were positive. I always knew I was pregnant.
