Addicted to positive tests?

Is this a thing? I've had 2 DC and 2MC (MC were DC2&3) and think seeing a BFP is the best feeling in the entire world. When I've gotten one in the past I will POAS endlessly to look at it blush

I am broody as soon as i give birth and haven't used contraception in 9 years, i don't know if I want a huge family or if I'm addicted to pregnancy/babies. Will I ever feel "done" sad

Part of me wonders if it's because I found it so difficult to conceive and had to look at negative tests weekly for years. Anyone else have similar feelings?

I'm with you yournews. Took us 20 months to conceive DS and I POAS every month of that so when I am pg I obsessively POAS. I don't even know why as when I MC I got positive tests for ages so they don't mean anything but I still do it. Weird!

This is me at the moment! Got my first bfp 2 weeks ago and have done at least one a day since blush it must have something to do with trying for a long time or mcs though. This will (hopefully) be my 3rd child, we've been trying for a year and have had 3 miscarriages in that time! When I found out I was preg with my 1st two children I just did one test and that was it! I got pregnant with both of them very easily with no complications! X

I had to get rid of all my tests as the drawer stank of pee blush
we've been trying for years an dthis is an ivf baby. I used a pissy stick at least twice a day for 2 weeks.
I'm almost over it!

Wrt to your situation op, I don't think you have an addiction to pregnancy/babies at all. You've got 2 children living with you and 2 rainbow babies. That's really not a huge number of children.
