  • I took 3 pregnancy tests you buy over the counter when I was pregnant with my daughter. Two said negative and one said yes. To beat it all they were all from the same company. It has been so long since I was pregnant, I can't remember the brand, but it was popular in the early to mid eighties.

  • I got my first positive around 6 weeks after conception (roughly a month after my first missed period). I took every type of test I could find before then and I had started to think it was a recurring case of the flu and a stomach bug. Then I took a dollar store test, then another, then 3 more tests from Walmart in one day (yep, 5 total lol) and they were all positive, the dollar store ones were a lot darker. The Walmart ones were so light I could hardly see the positive line.
