I took 2 home pregnancy tests with this current pregnancy & haven't been able to throw them away! (The 1st one was a cheapy & hubby didn't believe it & the second was the expensive one that he trusted: ) I was wondering maybe I will put them in the baby book. Has anyone else saved their home test for a 'souvenir?'
I haven't been able to find a babybook that doesn't have a mainstream kind of theme (which hosp., delivery Dr., vac. records, etc.)so I am going to make my own from just a blank scrapbook. I haven't started yet so any ideas you mommas want to share on what you have done or have in mind will be much appreciated. Thanks! Laura

I saved mine but it turned an icky yellow color (the entire window) and you can barely see the blue lines now... I also tried to take a photo of one of the tests I used but the flash flooded it, and you can't see the lines either...

I have mine from all of my pregnancies...they're all fine.

They do sort of yellow over time, and the blue lines kind of faded a touch, but they look as "positive" as ever.

I put one in a baby book, one in a memory box, and the other one is around here somewhere. : I started to write their names on the sticks so that I could keep track of them.

With our angel baby, it was my confirmation that she actually *was*...so I held onto it dearly.

I picked up a deep frame, mounted them and gave them to dh for father's day. It was a huge hit and it's hanging in the family hallwall gallery now. He's getting another one this year.
Michael's has the frames, shadowbox frames I think they call them, they're about 2" deep and come with Velcro to put on the object you're framing to hang on the backing board. I just bought one on sale for $5 and it took less than 5 minutes to frame.

I have one for eack of my three pregnancys. Yes, they do yellow but the blue lines are there. The middle pregnancy ended in m/c at twelve weeks so I also cherish the postive test from that baby.

Dont know what I will do with them yet, right now I have a underbed storage box that I put all cards birthdays candles and such memory stuff in.
