DO DOLLAR STORE PREGNANCY TESTS REALLY WORK?

Have you been to a dollar store lately? I keep wondering how these stores make it with everything being only $1. The stuff you can get for $1 is amazing! Of course you have to deal with super long checkout lines, unhelpful employees, and just plain ridiculous people… One time I was in line and the man in front of me asked the cashier if she could gift wrap a $1 bowl he was purchasing. She politely pointed to the corner and said “the gift wrap is in that corner”. He relied “no, do you offer free gift wrap?”. Needless to say I typically avoid going to the dollar store!

However, when my husband and I were trying to get pregnant, I went through A LOT of pregnancy tests. I wasn’t that girl who could just wait to find out if I was pregnant or not {aka I’m extremely impatient}, so I always tested as early as possible. And I would take 2 or 3 tests every time just to make sure. With dollar store pregnancy tests, the testing process is a little different. Rather than the traditional “peeing on a stick” method, you collect your urine in cup, then use the dropper provided to add 4 drops to the testing area. After a few seconds one pink line will appear, and after a few minutes a second line will appear if you’re pregnant. In my experience, even the faintest line means positive!

So, the real question is….Do drug store pregnancy tests really work? I’ve probably used over 40 tests within the past six months and am happy to say that my results were 100% accurate every time! ***I also used the Ovulation Predictors and they were accurate in case you are interested!

This was my first experience buying pregnancy tests, but when you have a choice between paying $15 for a test, or $1 for a test, it’s an obvious answer for me. I hope dollar stores stay around for a while so that I never have to pay more than $1 for a pregnancy test…..or all the movie theater candy I stock up on while I’m there!

This is our cute little babe at 8 weeks. And yes, I actually took all of those pregnancy tests just to confirm that I was pregnant! 🙂

Have any of you used dollar store pregnancy tests? Were your results accurate? I’d love to hear your experiences!
