I'm still taking them, lol! I have taken about 9 so far I think. I had a chemical preg in Jan and I'm afraid my line will disappear. I will take 2 more I think. One each week until my first appt! How embarassing!!!

I took 3. Not because I couldn't see a line, but because the line was very dark and showed up very fast...I was only 11dpo and it was NOT fmu, so I was expecting to have to squint in order to see a line. I took 2 First Response Early Response, and 1 dollar store test...all three were positive, except only the dollar store one was slightly faint.

I just replied to you but I dk if it went through. I was saying that I've taken several $ store tests. They seem to work fine, maybe just don't work as early as other brands. And sometimes don't show as dark but I dk that I've ever had an evap line on those at all. Hope that helps! -Jill

I used first response and dollar store on the same day/same time. The first response showed up dark positive lines almost immediately. The dollar store showed up within about 2 mins. it was fainter than the control line, but not hardly visible.

I only took 1 at home. I got a pregnancy test at the hospital last night. So in total you could say I've had 2. It only took 1 to convince me though. With all of the other symptoms I was having I already knew.
