with your BFP? Did you keep it, toss it, something else?




I still have one of mine in the drawer of my desk. It was the first positive one I got. I don't know why I haven't thrown it away yet.. but I like looking at it every now and then.

I took a TON of tests, mainly to see that they were getting darker. Once I saw my little one's heartbeat, I came home and tossed them out. They seemed to be stressing me out more than helping me once they started getting lighter from such high levels.

Hmmmm, I never even considered keeping one??

I did tell my husband in a kinda fun way...I taped a note to our bathroom mirror that read:

What do eggs, roses, doughnuts and our children have in common?
(look in the closet to find out)

and in the bathroom closet I propped the + test at eye level with another note that read "THEY ALL COME IN A DOZEN!!"

I can still see that huge dimpled grin on his face!

I threw all mine out right before my u/s. I was not ready to tell my kids yet and they kept rummaging through our bathroom (they are really nosey children, lol). Plus when my last test was darker than the control line, I knew it was time to stop testing. It was seriously stressing me out.

I still have all the ones I took. Probably because I know this is my last child and I couldn't part with them yet. But I will most likely just throw them out when I am finished looking at them. I took pictures as keepsakes of all the tests I took for my kids to keep.

I still have them in a bag tucked away between two pairs of capri pants where I knew the boys wouldn't find them. I don't plan on keeping them...just haven't tossed them yet.

I kept mine for a long time. I looked at them a few weeks ago and I couldn't even tell they were positive anymore, so I decided to toss them. If they had kept their lines better, I probably would have kept them.

I kept the FRER and Digi with a writing on them of the date and "baby#2".

I still have Max´s with the date and "1st baby" written on it in a box with other items from when he was born (the tape they used to measure him that has a mark with his measurement, his first hat - washed of course- and stuff like that).
