With my first three pregnancies, I only had to take one.  But, with this pregnancy, I took like five.  I even had to go buy a digital to read "Pregnant."

I always take a lot...

DS1 - 4 (I was 16 and in denial)
DS2 - 3 (I was on the NUVA RING)
DD (this baby) - 8. I had just come off bc and had tested 8 days before my period was due, so I took one every day for 4 days, then the other 4 every other day. I was afraid it was a chemical, I wanted to make sure the line got darker.

1st pregnancy- i took one and it sunk in immediately but i wanted to be positive about it so took another than the dad told his dad (even though we'd agreed NOT to tell anyone yet) and we went out to dinner with him (which happened a lot) and before i was allowed to eat he made me take another to be 100% sure so over dinner we could discuss it....

this pregnancy (2nd) i took one and got on video chat with dh who's in iraq, he wnated me to double check and take another so i took a second one a few days later, than made the doctors appointment... but it clicked on the first test with this one too... although i still dont "feel" pregnant and im 21 weeks

 I took 2.  The first showed a very faint line.  I took a digital the next day.  The military required me to take a blood test, but I didn't do that until weeks later. 

And even then, I don't think it really sank in until the 1st ultrasound.
