I AM Pregnant!! This is the second test that I bought this week that finally confirmed what I already knew myself, that I was indeed pregnant, up the duff, in the family way, whatever you want to call it, my first child is on it’s way! Hindsight is a great thing now that I wish that I had bought this test first, but I didn’t as it was the most expensive (£8.75 Boots) and when you feel fairly sure that there is a visitor in your tummy you tend to plump for cheap and cheerful, just to confirm your thoughts, unfortunately for me, cheap and cheerful was inaccurate for me this time so it cost me twice as much in the end! First Response proudly boasts being able to test earlier than any other home test and able to deliver results 3 DAYS BEFORE your PERIOD is DUE and although this wasn’t the case with me, it is a pretty strong claim to make in the minefield of pregnancy tests available these days, that was the reason for my choice in the end as I figured it must be able to detect such a minute amount of HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin), to be able to make such a claim and therefore obviously the tests that I had been using, the cheaper ones, must require a fairly large amount, hence the reason that they are cheaper. First Response can also be used at any time of day, not just the morning and claims that it is as accurate as any doctors test, being over 99% accurate in laboratory tests The test itself was very straightforward, just remove the stick from it’s wrapper, take off the cap, hold it either in the urine stream for 5 seconds or dip it into a sample you have collected in a dry cup previously for 5 seconds, replace the cap and lay stick flat with the result window facing up, results appear within 3 minutes – I blinked and mine were there in a flash, 2 lovely strong pink lines, smiling up at me! I am now sitting here waiting for my partner to get home so that I can tell him, so it’s a secret until then okay guys!!
