  • It's a wonderful keepsake to have. I have mine from my last two pregnancies. You can actually remove the stick you pee on, which is what I did. My middle child is almost 5 and it still has a very clear, bright pink positive!

  • I guess it's up to you. I couldn't stand the idea of keeping something that I had peed on. It just seemed gross to me. A girl I know kept hers and put it in her baby book... I just can't shake the feeling that it's gross.
