Pregnancy Test Accuracy


pregnancy test accuracyIf you have been trying to get pregnant for awhile, it is only natural to be in a state of disbelief when that second line finally shows up. 

When that happens, I think there are a lot of us who then decide to challenge pregnancy test accuracy.  We might start by using the remainder of our pregnancy test stash and testing over and over until they are gone.  Even with each of these confirmations of pregnancy, there are some of us who would decide to run out and get another brand or type of pregnancy test.  Maybe one that lets you see the word “pregnant,” hoping that it will help you accept the validity of the original BFP (big fat positive). 

Even after confirmation from the doctor and clear pregnancy symptoms, I have friends that continue to take pregnancy tests every couple of days into their first trimester, just to make sure they are still pregnant. 

There is something comforting about being able to take a test whenever you want to.  Maybe it is because it is one of the very few things you have control over in this unpredictable TTC journey?
