  • I got a bfp from a dollar store test. They are supposed to be just as accurate as any other test. Did you poas with first morning urine?

  • Always use your first morning pee. And if you aren't like a week late, your HgC may not be high enough yet.

  • Do you think cause its a cheap 1 dollar test it could have something to do with it.. Its been 9 yrs since my last son was born, I havent started and should have around the 25th of March. I cant get another test till tomorrow...

  • My friend worked at the local doctors office and told me they are the exact same thing. If you are unsure, I would buy 1 or 2 more, see what they say, if still unsure, I would head to a doctors office and get a blood test just to be sure. :)

  • Reading the other answers, make sure it is the first morning pee. And to be honest, I used dollar tree tests for both of mine and they were right :)

  • I am unsure of it all... I have the signs cramping, breats tingling, 3 weeks late, everything that you get with your first symtoms, but also the same signs as your period. So difficult..... I will go get another one in the morning..
