  • I used the hotdog method. The first time my father cooked a hot dog with me in the room and I had to run to the bathroom to throw up. My mother rushed me to the gyno the next day.

  • I don't remember because I used 4 different kinds. I was so excited I thought they couldn't be right so I just kept trying different kinds until I believed it.

  • I read on Yahoo that the Dollar Store ones are just as reliable.
    They did not have them when I was pregnant.

  • First response!!

  • Indeed First Response, only because I used that for my first pregnancy and it seemed to be right. I was tempted to try the dollar store ones though, probably still going to try it :)

  • The first test I used was First Response & got a VERY faint positive, so I went & bought 3 more lol, The 2nd was E.P.T & also got a VERY faint positive, the Dollar store one gave me a negative & the last one I took was Clear Blue & it gave me a BFP!!!, Then I went to my OB who confirmed my pregnancy! =)

  • I used the ones from Save A Lot grocery store that are $1 each. They worked too!

  • BTW it doesn't really matter the name brand of the test. What matters is the sensitivity level of the test. Here is a link that explains it:
