  • I'd get a coule of different ones, I didn't use the most expensive or the cheapest I went somewhere in the middle, but get a few of them just to make sure you are or aren't.

  • i used the one in the pink box with blake i think its first response and with kelsey i used a dollar store test but went and got another one to confirm it was a knock off too. but i have heard awesome things about the clear blue digital test it tells u right there if ur prego or not.

  • They're all the same. There are no false positives on a preggo test (unless you're on hormone therapy, then there could be), only false negatives. Each test measures for HcG levels in your urine and the test strip is only going to change colors if enough of that hormone is present in your urine. The *early response* tests are more expensive and only nominally more sensitive to the hormone than, say, a dollar store test. There accuracy rates for all of the early response tests are less than 50% if you test before you have actually missed your period. Good luck hun!

  • I used first responce, because it was on sale. I don't think it makes a difference as to what brand you buy. I know a girl that buys hers from the dollar tree, and she is pregnant with baby number 4 and they have all been right.

  • ktok2009 has it right. ALL preg tests are the same. they only differ slightly in the amt of hcg levels needed to be detectable. that info can be looked up online, but if you're pregnant, you just need one test (of any brand) to tell you the truth. and that includes dollar store tests. i've read this in several baby-related articles and websites and have even been told by a dr. who was doing a urine preg test in the drs lab. even the test they use was equal to the ones i could pick up at the dollar store!

  • I loved First Responce the one in the pink package I loved it! worked great and had results quick

  • Dollar Tree and First Response tell you before any other test till. They only require your hcg level to be at a 15 for those to turn positive. The digital tests usually require a 150, while all others are somewhere in between. Most are between 25 and 100 somewhere.
