Now, you may think that there is very little difference in pregnancy test kits, especially when they are on cheap in the pound shop. This is where you would be totally wrong. First response, normally a totally reliable brand, is one that can detect the pregnancy hormone HCG at a very early stage, in this case it states that it can detect HCG as soon as the day before your period is due. Imagine the scene, Mrs wishywalshy anxious to discover whether her feelings were true or not, I might be or I might not.
One quick piddle on the stick should provide the answer once and for always. Planned from the outset number six would be a wonderful addition to our family.
The box is nicely sealed in a cellophane wrap, not that anyone would want to pre pee on it, but you can never be sure LOL.
On opening the box, the instructions seem to be quite straightforward; either wee on the stick for a second, or wee into a receptacle and dip the stick for a couple of seconds. Now you would have thought that with my old hand experience even I could do this with out a glitch. Now comes the fun bit, unwrapping the darn thing without dropping it down the loo. I must say it was certainly well wrapped, again for hygiene, only this time in a bite resistant tear resistant foil wrapper, which you need to be Lennox Lewis to undo. After going four rounds with it I finally managed to prise it open, by now thoroughly bursting!!!! . It doesn’t look any different to any other test, something like an empty maker pen with a large window.(More will be revealed later<grin>) A small wee later and a lot of waiting, nothing appeared to have happened, so moaning and groaning I binned the whole thing.
Feeling more nauseous than ever I decided to do the second one a few hours later, wee and wait, and wait and wait, damn duff cheap tests I thought, and promptly dropped it like a hot brick, this time it turned over, to reveal the skeleton like underside and two lines. This is why the grin earlier.
Now a full description, in my haste I didn’t thoroughly examine the stick to start with. The stick looked exactly like an empty marker pen that is about 4 inches long, the type with the extra broad nib, with a protective cover on the end. It is quite thin and even has a thumb grip(Duh) The underside is just plain white, and the top is clear obviously the place that contains the reactive bit, enclosed in this part is what appears to be a piece of litmus type paper which absorbs the wee and a small amount of pink dye. If you are pregnant two lines will appear in the front window, if you are not just it will be just the one.
So I guess that this is my way of announcing the forthcoming arrival of our newest addition in December.
Any suggestions for a name, we have already used all of the initials in our surname!!!!!!
Cheapest is not always best, but good for a laugh though!!!!
