Hi ladies.

I plan to test tomorrow morning at 10dpo. If I get a negative, I will test again at 12dpo, 13 dpo, and 14dpo (day I should get AF). Which test should I use tomorrow? I have two of each of the following tests: dollar tree, walgreens digi, and clear blue digi? What would you use?

I would start with the dollar tree tests.

Agreed. Dollar tree = best at 10dpo

its not a waste of money and is still just as likely to give you a BFP if any will.

i agree w/dollar tree. also FYI the walgreens digi is twice as sensitive as clearblue.

i do dollar tree from 10 dpo till AF, and i use something more expensive only if the DT results were inconclusive. i actually usually don't have anything but DT in the house, which we buy in bulk. every time i'm at the checkout counter with like 20 pregnancy tests and nothing else i'm always really embarassed.

Thanks for the input! I will be using the DT test tomorrow. I am cautiously optimistic. Baby dust to all!

i feel so judged each time i buy a lot from them, but whatever! last time DH bought them for me. like, 15 of them. i asked him if they gave him a weird look, and he was like, "how the heck should i know?" i wish i had been a fly on the wall. i'm SURE they gave him a weird look - some random dude buying 15 pregnancy tests from dollar tree?? (the cashiers aren't debriefed on how awesome their tests are, ya know? i feel like that is part of the reason for the weird looks.) DH never notices these things, he's always in la-la land.

I'd do the dollar tree as well. I just bought 20 today , and the cashier said "wow, someone wants to be really, really sure." I felt like a complete dork, but they don't always have them....

I do that all the time too, I even asked the cashier once if she had ever checked someone out before that had 15 of their tests in her cart. She said she'd never seen anyone purchase that many before, usually only 1 or 2 at a time, i just laughed. I live in a very small town though and I don't ever see anyone else buying them. I can only imagine what the ppl behind me in line think.

I agree with everyone else $$Tree are the ones for sure!!!

So, I tested this morning with dollar tree and got a BFN, which I kind of expected. I still have hope, my temp was still really high this morning. I will test again on Friday. Good luck to all of those testing!
