When do you stop testing?

So I'm a little POAS crazy. Every test has been positive since Sunday morning (10dpo). (I think I took 9 total) Monday morning my test was a smidgen lighter but I still got a "pregnant" on a clearblue digital. (there were the last 2 tests I have taken) I have 1 test left and AF is due Thursday. I don't feel like I can go out and buy a gazillion more tests. Is it safe to just save this FRER for Thursday morning and call it a day with testing? I guess I'm scared my HCG level is going to drop AF will come and I'll be totally blindsided and unprepared and then AF will feel like an MC.....

Re: When do you stop testing?

15 DPO is when I stopped doing it daily. I took a very random one like......2 weeks after that just for giggles to see how dark it would be.

I know it's hard to let go after you have had a loss. {{hugs}}

I kept testing randomly until 5 weeks along when the morning sickness hit me. because I'd had a chemical pg before that. I had my BFP at 10dpo and tested every day for a few weeks, I would randomly buy tests at Walmart and then take them.... just because I was so excited. She's 18 months now.

With my first I never tested after a bfp. With our miscarriage I tested for a couple days, with ds I only tested for a few days..I personally don't wanna worry about it...if the line gets a smidgen darker I will just cause myself extra stress which isn't good for a pregnancy. so I think if I get pregnant again I will only test for a day after the bfp...unless I have a ton of test left hehee
