What brand of pregnancy test did you use? How many tests did you take?

I took a First Response Early Result... there were 2 in the package. I took one in the morning on the first day and then the second the next morning. With my first I think I took about 4

I usually do First Response. But I chart too so I know when I'm pregnant before I take the test.

I charted with Dalton - we had been TTC for a while, but with this one we didn't really decide to TTC until the month we ended up pregnant I want to go back to charting after this one is born so we can do NFP - I hate being on birth control.

I'm glad you are feeling more and more pregnant!

Natural Family Planning - specifically I want to do the Billing's Method. It's a combination of charting/temping and observing your body's signals to know when your fertile is - whether you want to avoid conception or try to conceive.

Congrats on your pregnancy!!!! Rest, rest, rest!!! It'll be your best friend during all of this It's been hard for me to just sit and do NOTHING. But knowing that I have a little life to take care of, the sitting and relaxing is getting easier and easier

Congratulations!! That's awesome!

I think they did the urine and blood tests at my first appointment too, but that was at 10 weeks.

I took a clear blue digital and only took one. It said pregnant so no reason to keep testing.

I started with Dollar Store tests this go around and ended up getting a digi to confirm that I was pregnant because I kept getting a very faint line...

When we were TTC the first time, I had a bunch of dollar store tests and internet cheapies. This time we had barely decided to TTC when we found out we were pregnant - it was SO different from last time!

I've never taken a digital test, but I can see why seeing the word would mean you don't need to test again!

I used the Target Brand and I made sure I got 2 just to have 1 for backup. They both came up positive on different days so I just knew I was pregnant. Got that confirmed at the DR but here is the SCARY part...I googled the Target Brand pregnancy tests and it got sooo many bad reviews. Could be abother reason that I doubt myself. ugh.

I had just a drug store generic one for the first test. I was pretty sure it was wrong when it said pos. So I took 2 more digital tests.
First test on a fri morning, second sat night, third sunday morning... 3 tests couldnt all be false positives

I had already made a dr apt for the monday morning following.
