    I actually still prefer Answer. I got a pretty good line with Answer just as early as I did with FRER when I tested, and from what I have seen, the Answer tests haven't changed. I actually haven't seen a bigger false positive rate in any of my TTC groups with the new FRERs lately. The first two weeks after they came out it seemed like a lot but it has gone back to how it always was with them since. So, I would personally still use them, but you know me... I test with 3-4 different brands every time anyway. I need to make sure EVERY PREGNANCY TEST EVER thinks I am pregnant, too.

    Lol, thanks for all the info! I'll be sure to come back to this thread if I have any 'oh no' moments

    I've made it to the age of 30 without ever peeing on a stick! I'm happy about that. My mother, not so much

    IMO, the walmart 88 cent pink dye tests are just as good; however, like OP said they do require a cup and a dropper (they include the dropper) so it's not exactly "peeing on a stick." If you're willing to pay for convenience, go for it, but I truly believe those cheap-y tests are equally as good as the $13 first response ones.

    thanks! I usually have left over plastic cups from parties and things, so that wouldn't be a problem for me.

    Haha I only have a few times. a few months ago my period was FIVE DAYS late, I didn't really feel like I was pregnant at all but I figured I'd take a test just to make it show up. It worked
  9. I'm sorry for the things I said when I was hungry.

    I have actually peed on a stick and in that moment got my period. I was equally relieved and furious I had wasted money on a test.

    This happened to me last year the day I met Andrea at Spang! My hormones were being funky and my boobs were on FIYAH, so I grabbed the test while we were at the BX...got home, sat down to pee, insta-AF.
