The downside of owning too many tests....

Ok, so I have been charting my cycles religiously, been testing with opk's daily and yesterday was a very exciting day for me. I had cleared out my bathroom cabinet the night before as I had some half used boxes of both opk's and hpt's. With opk's I vary between 'first response' which has little sticks and a cup for opk and then a wee on a wand hpt with a lid, and 'forelife' which used to have the wee on a wand opk's with lid and then a little stick which needs to go in a cup for hpt... All gets very confusing. In my tidy up I found a forelife hpt stick so yesterday morning, unable to contain my patience any further I thought I would use the newly found forelife hpt.
It came out positive!!!!
Made plans with DH, when buying a walker for my DD I chose one which was gender neutral in case next time I have a boy, I even spoilt myself with a new pair of maternity jeans!
Still unable to contain my excitement I decided to use a hpt with a lid so I had something to keep. Thought there may be a chance that it won't be as clear as it was evening but didn't matter to me.
I came out a big fat negative......
Stewed on this for a while and then dug out the positive one from the morning...... It wasn't a hpt. It was an opk...
I'm not pregnant, I'm ovulating..... For about the 8th day in a row....(wtf is up with that by the way?)
What an idiot!!!!!
We were so excited! This would be our third.... You'd think I'd have my sh#t together by now and be able to read a label!!!!! Arrhhhhh!

Bahahaha I did that just the other day. Took a test, whinged to a friend about how I'm going to have to throw out this batch of internet cheapies as they're giving really bad evaps (was only baout 3dpo LOL), took photos to send to her etc. And about 30 minutes later took another look and yeah, OPK all over it. Doh!
