Keeping pregnancy tests
Wed, 05-18-2011 - 11:20pm

Ok, so have any of you guys done this? I'll admit I put them back in the box and put it in the cabinet. Out of sight out of mind. LOL, but DH opend the cabinet and saw them. So he asks me why I'm keeping pee'd on sticks! I didn't really know what to say. I'm not really keeping them because I'm partial to them or anything I just haven't thought about throwing it away, if you know what I mean? Any ways, now that hes put it that way I'm sure they will be going into the trash soon. =)

I didn't keep mine with my first 2 kids. Didn't think anything of them and threw them away. With my others, I kept one ...I don't know I'm strange. It's just kind of sentimental to look at them and remember when I took it and found out I was pg with that child. They are all so dried out and faded, so I don't think it's too gross, haha.

I didn't keep the ones from my first pregnancy, and I don't know that I kept ones from the second pregnancy. But so far ... I still have all 3 from this pregnancy!!

I kept some of the dollar store cheapies, but you can't see the line very clearly anymore because the pee dried and made its own line. The digital tests don't say "pregnant" anymore obviously...I do need to throw them away.

We had such a hard time getting PG, that I kept the tests from both pregnancies.

That's funny - I've had this same discussion with my sister and with friends. I kept mine long enough to show DH and some family then tossed 'em. I guess I never really thought about keeping them since I peed on :smileyhappy: I've
