Anyone ever feel embarrassed when you go and buy a pregnancy test?

I wouldnt feel weird at all if I was in a bigger town. But Im in a VERY small town where everyone knows me. I can feel there eyes glaring at me from the whole store. I would go to the other town 8 miles away but right now the roads are iced over!! I have took multiple tests but they are so light that I just want to take a digital so my fiancee will believe me. Note that he has bad eyes and has had to have surgery on them. He thinks Im just seeing it and going insane lol. I just want to prove to him that I am right!

  • Um, nope.

    I bought four when I was PG with our DD - I was 33 and just happy my eggs worked!!!!

    I think it is silly to be shy about buying pregnancy tests and tampons - unless you are buying a six-pack and a carton of ciggies as well!!!!

    I hope 2009 brings healthy eyes to BF.

  • I get embrassed simply because even though I am 26 I still look like a teenager, and let me tell you, some of the looks you get set you back a step.

  • I wish there was a walmart. The only thing I have is a dollar store and a price chopper. I look like I am like 16 and I got looks. But I try to flaunt my ring saying that I am committed and about to get married.

  • I don't know why.. I'm married but yes i do. I tell myself all the time there is NO reason for me to feel embarassed i guess i'm just nervous of someone seeing me and telling people that i'm pregnant when in fact the test come back negative.

  • I feel embarrassed all the time, because I look like a teen too, and I'm married. I even feel embarrassed going in to just get pads for AF. But I feel it's so stupid to be embarrassed, so I'm trying to not pay any attention to people.

  • Yeah Im just afraid someone will tell my moms side of the family. Which they think its a sin to have a baby when your married. My beliefs are different though. Im afraid someone will say I am too young because I do look very young. One time I bought one at dollar store and my sister was with me and after I walked out the women said to my sister, she looks WAY to young to be having a baby. Im pretty sure my mom was so pissed and called the manager. That women got fired because they are not allowed to comment like that. Its confidential.

  • I dont really feel embarrassed to buy tampons. But it was funny a couple months ago, my mom sister and I were shopping at walmart. I needed a pregnancy test, my mom needed pads and tampons, and my sister needed protection. So we were checking out and my mom said she would pay for it all and it just looked ridiculous lol
