A story that will make you roll your eyes and groan...

I didn't know where to post this, but I knew you ladies would appreciate this.

Apparently, First Response is launching their advertisements for their new Fertility Test (which tests the viability of your eggs) by placing one in selected packs of pregnancy tests. I know this because I bought such a pack. I remember looking at the thing, which was packaged in bright green, and then tossing it back in the box.

Meanwhile, I am waiting to test. Last Sunday morning, I woke up really early and knew I had to POAS or I wouldn't have another chance until the evening. I did my thing, and IMMEDIATELY two lines showed up! I was SO excited. I told DH, my best friend, and my parents.

Later that day, during another bathroom visit, I casually looked into the FR box only to notice that the bright green wrapped stick was missing. FML!!!!! I dug out the stick and confirmed that I had taken a Fertility Test instead of a Pregnancy Test. First, I felt like a total idiot for not noticing in the first place, second, I felt mad at FR for putting the darn thing in the box, and third, I felt bad because I had to go tell DH that I wasn't PG. On a good note, my eggs are looking GREAT!

On a side note, my DH made me apologize for getting his hopes up and was pissed. (That is another story all together.)

I still haven't told my parents because AF still hasn't come this cycle and I am crossing my fingers that I might still be PG.

All I can say is UGH!!!! Why is it the TTC and POAS can make any woman feel like such a dunce? I still don't know whether to laugh, cry, scream, or do all of the above at once.

Oh no! I bet you are not the first person to make that mistake and I doubt you will be the last. I am so sorry. They really need to make the whole test look very different! In big letters it should say FERTILITY TEST or something!

It said Fertility Test in green letters on the stick, but, again, in my morning stupor, all I could think about was aiming right and the lines in the window. The entire stick should be green!

Well we all have our moments of glory, don't we? I swear I've missed things that are right in front of my face many times. Maybe you will have a bfp in the end anyway. Hope so!
