I Say Forget The Expensive Tests And Go To Dollar Tree

i took a digital test this am, it said not pregnant, i took a 1st response 4 hours later after not having anything to eat or drink since last night, and it was negative. i went to church and bought a few tests from dollar tree and took one when i got home. i had eaten a few pretzels and some water, but not long enough before to dilute my urine. i took a dollar store test and a faint line appeared immediately. it has grown stronger over the past hour, but i'm afraid i'm losing my mind! i could see it from an arms length away right after i took it so i'm taking it as a bfp. we'll see, i'm going to have my blood drawn tomorrow. but it sickens me to know how much i've spent on expensive tests when the dollar store test works better!

bethtwo,how many dpo are you?If you got any type of bfp then congrats you are pregnant.No matter how faint the positive is,it's really positive.

hello! as far as I can tell, I am approximately 15 DPO, but not sure. I think I became pregnant around June 2nd or 3rd if I am indeed pregnant. I will see the dr. tomorrow to confirm. How exciting! We've been trying for over a year now and it's been very frustrating, not to mention expensive with HPT's!

bethtwo, please let us know how your blood tests go tomorrow. My husband and I just found out we're expecting, had some difficulty getting prego too. We're so excited. I pray you're prego too, we'll be due around the same time. God Bless!

ok ladies, i went to see dr. yesterday and waited around for my blood test results. i asked the dr. which he was going to do, and he said both, but then they only did the yes/no!!! it came out negative. i could not believe it. i thought for sure i was pregnant. i started bleeding a little today, so i'm wondering if it's a miscarriage. i wouldn't have the slightest what that's like or why it wouldn't show up on the blood test. i had faint positives show up within 10 seconds! i'm really upset. i thought for sure this time...

I totally agree dollar tree tests are the best! I tested at 10 DPO, and got a clear BFP. 2 days later I went to the drs to get it confirmed there, and the nurse was like "it's not going to show up yet" she basically thought I was crazy. So we did the test, and the started to show me what a positive test looks like, and then was like " see and this is what yours looks like" indicating it was negetive. I was like well it took 40 seconds for it to turn positive with the DT test, so she waited a little bit, but had started to mark negetive on my result sheet. Anyway, it turned positive, and she was shocked. But my DT test was much darker. :)
