How many pregnancy tests did you take after your 1st positive?

I have a 5 yo DD and it took my husband and I several years to get prego with her due to my medical condition. 1 test and we knew there was no need for any others =} But we have had several miscarriages since her. Well I have been feeling "off" over the last month and since my periods are bot regular its hard to say "oh I missed my cycle" well after some crazy cravings we decided to buy a 2 pack of tests I took the 1st test on April 8th at 6pm and I had a very faint positive. Husband said ok lets see what the other one says in the am. Ok no problem 1st thing in the morning on the 9th very dark positive. I called and scheduled a appointment with my OB and they cant see me till the 22nd. Well over the last week I haven't felt sick and no cravings and my breasts aren't as tender so I became very concerned so today I went and bought a cheap 88 cent walmart test and yup still a dark positive. I wanna be excited but i'm so scared of loosing another pregnancy. So how many test did you take?

With my first I only took one test, with my 2nd only one but I ended up miscarrying that one so with this pregnancy I took 7 within one and half week period. I became relived once the test line was darker then the control line. I will admit this pregnancy I have been more cautious and a basket case when you miscarry any pregnancies after that takes that innocents away. Good luck to you and congratulations.

I agree good luck to you also. I guess seeing the line was just a reassurance that I am pregnant.

Aww I think with my PCOS my DH is concerned because I dont think he trusted the 1st test because the 2nd line was so faint lol best of luck to you =}

I took a few with my first because I was young and everybody wanted to know for sure, with dd1 I took 2 and with dd2 just 1
