I have kept them all, even the ones from the m/c's. Some day when I am all done making my babies I will throw them alllllll out. Some

I kept one from DD2, but I tossed the ones from my m/c's - those felt like bad luck.

With DD I kept the test, but must have forgotten about it. I found it way later and was grossed out by it, lol. At first, with this pg I kept it for a couple days, and then it started feeling gross to me, so I took another test and snapped a picture of the BFP and then threw the test away. I frequently look at the pic of that + sign. It makes me feel good

I kept them for a while, then they kind of faded and the digital one went blank. I still take tests frequently to reassure myself, so I keep each one for about a day, then throw it away. I do love to go look at them and see how nice and dark the line is now. Makes me feel a bit better every time. This lack of symptoms is just killing me! I would rather feel aweful than worry about no symptoms!

LOL...I guess I'm in the minority here...I couldn't stand it sitting out any longer after I showed my husband...I tossed both of mine probably 10 minutes after taking both of them.

Throw it out. I take picture of it right away and leave on my bathroom counter until the display goes blank (about 24 hours) then throw it out.
