Ok, I know this is such a idiotic thing...but as I mentioned in my other post I had some cramping and bleeding. I've had lots of miscarriages before I had my children. And in all of my pregnancies I seem to have a subchorianic bleed. So that's why I'm not completely freaking out about the cramping and bleeding, but some a little concerned.
I never stopped testing. I think the reason is because I just can't believe I'm pregnant. I know I know it's like believe it already, but I never thought I would have 5 children. I never put a number on my family. I am ok with it now though in the beginning I was kinda freaking out and in denial, hence the many many preg tests. I had a bunch of the wondfos left so I just kept taking them watching the test line get increasingly darker than the control line. It got sooo much darker than the control line.
After the bleeding and cramping, I thought to test again but omg it was lighter than the control line after that. That was yesterday. So then I thought let me try again tomorrow (today) and it's still lighter!! so then I started freaking out that maybe the bleeding and cramping means that Im losing my baby.
Now I started googling and apparently there is some sort of hook effect that even makes some pregnancy tests test negative at some point. I just don't really know if I believe this or not. It's weird, but that apparently that's how women who have irregular cycles miss a few periods then test negative and then show up like..umm I've got pain in my belly and the preg tests were neg. but yet they're in labor. I don't know how much of that I believe but I guess it happens.
So in light of that long story I was wondering if anyone's more than 7 weeks and have been testing still (if you can admit it) and also have another one left to see if your test line is lighter than your control line??
I know these hormones are making me insane. Anyone up for a test of this hook effect theory?
