Who still has their positive pregnancy tests?

Where is/are they?

If you don't have it, when did you toss it?


I still have all of mine, and I have a lot of them! I tested quite a bit when I was hemorrhaging and had the sub chronic bleed. Duringy my previous pregnancies I kept the tests until my first OB appointment. Not sure why maybe for good luck I guess, ha ha. I think I'll keep these until after my next appointment. I had them lined up on the bathroom counter, but I've had people over, so now they're in a drawer.

Mine were trashed immediately (I only had two). I saved the first one for half an hour until DH got home so I could show him, but then I threw that away. The second one I was just confirming myself a week later (I had no symptoms, I didn't really believe it), so once it showed positive I threw it away too.

It kinda grosses me out to save something I peed on!

Yes, I still have my positive pregnancy test. It's in the bathroom right next to by pregnancy test from my son. That test is over 3 years old now haha! I'm pretty sure I'll never throw it away. It's in a Ziploc bag and it will probably make it's way into some memory box or scrap book of some sort.

The first one I tossed the next morning. Then I tested a couple days later and when that was positive also I tossed it the next morning. Waited a couple more days, when that one was also positive I figured they were right and just told DH we had passed our test and I think I tossed it right away.

I kept mine for a couple days and then tossed them. I just get kind of grosses out by the fact that there's pee on it pretty sure that would not make my morning sickness happy (I almost always gag while in the bathroom- ick).

I still have mine! LOL. Not sure what I'm doing with them, exactly, but I probably should throw them away.

Haha, so gone, DH would flip out if I tried to keep them, he thinks it's so gross. I kept it for a few days up high on a shelf in the bathroom, then threw it out.

I only tested once and I still have it. I brought it to our sunroom to take a picture of it. It stayed there a while. Then we were having company over so I threw it in my desk drawer, and there it remains. I've thought of tossing it a few times, but so far can't do it. It took so many negative tests to get there that I get sentimental about it, but I don't know what on Earth I think I'm going to do with it.

I've kept the first positive ones from each pregnancy. The one from DD1 in in a scrapbook that I made for myself of pictures from the pregnancy and ultrasound pics. It's got a cap on it. And I saved the ones from my 2nd (I think this one is in the memory box) and current pregnancy too.

I knew I wasn't the only one! I don't think it's gross. The peed on part is capped and sealed and even then the pee eventually evaporates away. I just find it reassuring to be able to look and see those double lines during those first few weeks when you don't look or feel pregnant and can't feel the baby move yet.

I only took two. One because I just couldn't wait for the BETA. I threw it away a few hours after I showed DH. And the second one was during my 3 week wait to see the baby after the confirmed BETA. I was going crazy because I had no symptoms. The positive showed up before the control line. That one was thrown away after I took a picture to put on my daily journal app on my phone

Threaten to bring it out at some point when your child brings a significant other over for dinner in high school. "AND THIS IS THE FIRST THING WE EVER SAVED FROM BABY BILLY! WANT TO HOLD IT?!"

I believe I do still have it, even though you can't read it since it was a digital test.

I still have like 15 from my first pregnancy and at least 4 from this one. haha. I have no idea why I saved them all...I stuck them in a drawer and forgot about them. I also had one in an old purse from pregnancy #1 that I came across recently...kinda gross now that I think about it!
