What brand of UPT do you use? I see a lot of people use first response (super sensitive, but so expensive!)... what other brands are used?

I use first signal from Walmart or first choice from dollar tree. (I think those are the names). The cheapo ones. They also are super sensitive, but super cheap. I have recently learned that not all Walmarts carry them though. I'm a POAS addict, so I can't do the expensive kind. Not to mention, they are a pain to buy. They either have that security box thing, or they're in a locked cabinet, or they are behind some alarm thingy. Omg has anyone else set off the alarm thingy?! It's like "HELLO WALGREENS SHOPPERS! I WOULD LIKE TO PURCHASE A PREGNANCY TEST AND WOULD LIKE EVERYONE ON THE PLANET TO KNOW ABOUT IT!!!!!"

I order mine online. I do the sticks, not the strips and they are about 2.50 each. I got a super sensitive one that is supposed to,detect HCG at 10 miu or something like that. I get my OPKs from the same place.

It's Canadian and so far I'm really happy with it! Make A Baby - Canada's source for Pregnancy hCG Test Strips, Ovulation LH Midstream Test

I order Wondfos online from Amazon and when I see a positive I use the FRERs to back it up. So I always make sure to have both in the house.

Thanks ya'll! I ended up ordering Wondfo .. I can't supply my habit forever at work! hahah have a few FRERs too. Will use as ya'll do.

I'm trying so hard not to be so obsessed, particularly because I have no idea when AF would even be since I'm still coming off the m/c... I've already warned my coworker that I'm insane and will probably want a blood test once a week... I'm such a weirdo.

Looking forward to obsessing over sticks with you!

I am swearing off IC's at this point. I ordered from early pregnancy tests.com and the OPKs are good, but the HPTs give deep dark indents every time. I like the WalMart cheapies, never got an evap or indent on those and will only use those and FRER from now on. Hoping it will preserve some of my sanity knowing that I cannot test super early!

Oooo you're good olive!! I think just knowing I have access to theearly stuff (including a blood test) really messes with me and makes me even more neurotic.

Took another one today - nothing. Friday will mark my 4 weeks post m/c.... time will tell. TIME IS THE WORST!!!
