I'll admit that I've kept all 5 of the HPTs I've taken so far - but that's mainly so I can compare the lines on them and reassure myself they're getting darker! I'm planning on throwing them out at some point, though. I don't think it's particularly weird to keep them - it's just not something I'm planning on doing.

With my first two pregnancies, I took pictures of the positive test and threw them out. This time, the pregnancy was such a HUGE surprise that I took two FRER tests and stared at them both for days. I took pictures like I normally do but both tests are still in my bathroom drawer. Even though I have a huge pregnant belly and can feel this little girl moving, have had 5 ultrasounds.....I still open the drawer and stare at those tests in awe. LOL!! I can't bring myself to throw them out yet. I don't know why. I guess I will get rid of them eventually but I'm just not emotionally prepared to do so yet.

I still have all 5 of mine sitting on top of the bathroom cabinet. I'll probably throw them away eventually. With DS, I took the HPT and put it in a box for my parents. We gave it to them like it was a gift from our honeymoon.

I kept the one from DS and put it in my pregnancy scrapbook. I have all 3 from this pregnancy, and ill probably going to do the same with them.(I took one with the first and already 3 with this one.)

I took an 2 EPT's and 2 digital CBE's so far! I'll end up throwing them all away tho, bc the digitals only say pregnant for 24hrs so I dont want to keep a blank test. I did take lots of pics of it tho! :) And I still have 3 more digitals to take pics of as well!

With both of my previous pregnancies I took lots of pictures then tossed them maybe a week later. My tests always get really gross and yellow after a couple of days so I couldn't imagine keeping them.

I've kept a couple tests from this time around but I'll end up doing the same with them.
