I threw mine out. It was digital and so the pregnant sign went away after 24 hours.

I have to admit, I am keeping mine till I know everything will be ok. When I got pg in March and then lost the baby at 9 weeks, I saved the tests. I saved everything I had gotten from that pregnancy. Its not in a memory box. I can't help it. I guess I feel like if I throw them out, I'm throwing out a piece of that memory. So for now I hang on to these ones to, if all goes well, like im planning I will throw them away and just keep the picture of the BFPs :)

I took pictures of mine. I used a bunch of cheapie dollar-store ones, and they fade over time. Also, the digitals go away, too.

I think I put a copy of the pics in the kids' scrapbooks.

I keep mine--I don't put them anywhere special-but I can't bring myself to throw them out either.

I kept mine from my twin pg until I recently moved out of my house this summer, it just got buried in some memory box that I sorted through. I have this one, I'll prob keep it until I get some good u/s pics, unless it gets buried in a box & I forget about it, lol.

Im keeping mine out until I get to see the heartbeat. It just reminds me that I really am pg, that is not all in my head. I know that sounds silly, but sometimes I still feel like Its a dream. I have TONS of pics of them. So when I do throw those out at least I will have the pictures.

I took pictures of mine as well. I thought about keeping it, but then decided to just go with pictures instead. I can't wait to have some U/S pictures of our little one.

I still have mine, I look at them every few days and it brings on an instant smile.
