Have you ever wondered how many HPT's that you taken over the years?? I quit counting after the first 100 or so. I am a home pregnancy test connoisseur! I have tried the digital. I have tried the store brand. I have tried the dollar store brand. I have even purchased them in bulk from an online retailer. Bulk?!?! Really?? Yes, bulk.
You fertiles may be asking why we need so many. Well, some tests can detect as early as 10 DPO (days past ovulation). So we begin testing on day ten. And day eleven. Twelve. Well, you get the picture. This obsessive testing continues until aunt flo arrives, but as day 14 approaches you up the number of HPT's to two a day. Why two a day? Because that first one must have defective! Even though you used your first morning urine and waited the full 5 minutes and even dug it out of the trash 20 minutes later to double check, it must be wrong! Your sore boobies, frequently trips to the potty and upset tummy must be signs of pregnancy, right? So you try again. And again. Before you know if you have gone through 10 pregnancy tests in less than a week. Addiction? I say not. Just overly careful. And hopeful. That remind me, Walgreens is having a sale EPT brand.......better pick up a few hundred or so!
