Did you ever use a home pregnancy test?

We're rounding up the best home pregnancy tests for a story on The Stir. If you used one to check if you were expecting, tell us: Which brand did you use (Clearblue, First Response, etc.)? What was your experience with the test like? How accurate and easy to use was it? Would you recommend it to other moms?

4 pregnancies all dollar tree tests. All positive before missed period. Sure beats the prices on "brand" tests!

 Yes.. for all. I normally used first response, but felt tech savy last time. So, I used clearBlue. When it said pregnant I was so excited. That word was so much more awesome to see then a boring old line.

It was right on for me, and I do reccomend it.

I never had a brand prefrence... it just had to be a digital one

i've used Clear Blue, First Response & EPT

i dont use the ones where you have to determine the lines, because then it's a guessing game.

i have never used a dollar tree one either (dont trust them)

I think I've used them all. I really don't see much difference between ease of use and accuracy between brands aside from having to check the box out for the different symbols to show positive/negative. I've spent a total of 11 years ttc so I've used a LOT of pregnancy tests.

I used first response with both took eight with dd after missed period got all negative or no response. I got a positive 4 days before my missed period with the same brand this time.

No, I just went to the doctor when I thought I was.

They use Dollar Tree tests at the doctors office my friend works for.

I used a First Response test! It was very accurate and easy to use. Though it was not my first time, we were TTC for awhile prior and had used many. I never had any problems!

*I was around 4 weeks at the time I found out!
