    Default Whats the best pregnancy test

    I don't have much money to go buying lots of tests so I need to know the most relaiable and accurate test there is.. I think the last one I used was first response. Any ideas?

    I have always used the cheapie ones in the supermarket.
    Always been reliable a couple of days after AF was due.
    I think they are called Clear Blue..

    I like First Response too, and they come with that nice little cap so you can keep the test and put it in bub's memory box

    well i have used three different ones over the past couple of days and my fav has been first response

    first repsonse: at 10dpo i got a BFP immediately (the line appeared as the urine was being absorbed)... i have however had an evap line on a dip stick first response in the past (so i only recommend the 'proper' sticks)

    pregnosis: u have to pee on this one for ten seconds which is quite a long period of time.. i think i only made it to about 7 seconds..lol... this one took longer for the line to show up and to become dark

    clear blue: this one is expensive and u can't test until after AF is due (although i still got a bfp at 12dpo) in the past i havent liked these tests as while it is developing it looks like u have a faint BFP which is quite disheartening... but hey it still worked this time

    out of the three tests, the first response still clearly shows my BFP whereas the other two are starting to fade (i know its disgusting but it's the only thing thats making it real so far)

    My vote goes to "First Response" not the dip stick ones, the real plastic ones with the pink lid. If you get a visable line on one of those you know you are deffo preggers, i have never ever had an evap with one of those, i have with other tests though, esp blue dye tests.

    Good luck hun!
