Hi Mary! :wavehello:

I bought a bunch of $1 ones and even after 4 BFP Clear Blue and test strips.. Plus 2 FRERs with BFPs, the dollar ones didnt show BFP for another 3 days. They may not be as sensitive.. ??

None the less, doesnt matter when they come, I know we all can't wait to see the pretty lines!!!!! Smile

thinking about having my blood drawn at work on friday spin it down and see what it says, maybe bribe one of the techs to run a quant on the machine, or just wait out the whole two weeks, which sounds like a terrible idea to me!! lol

I just ordered some Save On Tests ones. I used them when TTC DD. They work out to be less than 50 cents a test for the little strips. This is the site here:

Pregnancy Test and Ovulation Predictor Kits - Buy tests at cheap wholesale prices for less than $0.30 per test kit.

I got my BFP with them at 14 dpo with DD. I probably would have got one sooner but I just didn't test until 14 dpo. This was my BFP. Awweeee yeah! Can't wait for another one of these! (the bottom one was the save on tests one. I didn't take the other one until after I got that BFP).

I always use the $ store ones, I mean heck for a buck you POAS as much as you want! lol I got my bfp on one this past Wed and I'm not due to start until tomorrow. Granted it wasn't as dark as the FRER but very noticeably positive. Good luck to you, I would POAS and get my blood drawn at work! Wink
