Pregnant after a Loss

Am I crazy?

Little back ground information I had a miscarriage last may and have been trying since, I got my positive on Tuesday but I keep wanting to take a test cause I keep wanting to see the positive to put me at ease. Am I crazy for wanting to do this?anyone else do this?

    Definitely not crazy! I probably took ten tests after my positive... Seeing that dark line gives hope and reassurance.

    My second loss was a chemical, so I tested three times at the beginning of this pregnancy. Once at like 3.5 weeks, once a couple days later, and once after I missed AF (because my dr advises that patients test again after missing AF before making an appt.) After that, I figured I'd have hcg in my system whether or not things were still okay, so testing wouldn't reassure me. I had hcg for two months after my d&c with my first loss.

    RE says the low egg count is likely causing my recurrent pregnancy loss. Less eggs results in more aneuploidy.

    Not crazy!  I'm a serial tester. I usually have a jumbo pack of wondfos when I'm ttc. So I use them up until they're gone.

    Not crazy in the least!!! The first week I got my bfp with this pregnancy, I tested daily. Then I tested at least once a week until my first ob apt at 9 weeks! If it helps ease your mind, it's worth the money in my opinion!!!
