Now that you have gotten that positive test, what is the best Home Pregnancy Test?  And why?

 

I always used First Response Early Result.  It seemed to be reliable, and accurate, even early.

I like the Clearblue Easy digital.  It says "Pregnant" and it stays on there for about 8 hours so you can keep looking at it!

I always buy whatever's cheapest at Walgreens.  They all seem to work just fine...

I used Wondfo tests off of amazon with my last 2 pregnancies. Got really early results with those and they were super cheap. Used some other internet cheapies for DD and they worked fine. With my boys I used answer brand from walmart and they are good quality and work pretty early.

Can't tell you for sure, but they gave me a positive at 3 days before my missed period(miscarried that time) and then 4 days before my missed period(10DPO) with this one and that is the earliest any of my tests ever measured positive. I think I've read it varies, but for sure a 20 and sometimes better. I would guess it was measuring me at less than a 20. I've heard some even getting positives with them at 10 or less.

 

EDIT: I have 3 pics of wondfos on my profile page.
