Can you go and buy another stick to pee on? What brand did you use?

butterflyexperience Mon 19-Nov-12 16:43:21

Clear blue
Can't be arsed spending another £8 on a stick!

Going the doc might be pointless - some of them don't do tests at all any more. Your best bet is to just to go out and get another test.

butterflyexperience Mon 19-Nov-12 16:48:57

Do they not?
Oh may have to venture out then
What's the best test to take ?

I would also go buy another stick. With ds dr told me to take another test myself rather than come in to the surgery.

Go for stores own brands, less expensive and do the same job, clear blue tend to be less sensitive anyway, try boots own or sainsburys own are highly rated xx

GPs expect you to do your own test. Some of them will have cheap-ass tests to give you but will see it as a waste of their time. If you do get a positive there's no need to go to the GP at all, they don't actually do anything other than refer you to the midwife. I just referred myself this time round.

I think MN opinion is that Superdrug do the best test but really any of them should do the job if your period is a week late.

First Response is quite responsive I think, or Superdrug own brand ones. ClearBlue aren't as sensitive as the pink ones, I think.

Thanks for the info clear blue was a waste of time then!
Am sending dh to tescos

We are quite excited! Thus may be dc3 smile

My doctors won't do tests. But I've always found cheap ones as good as expensive. Boots/super drug own brand are fine.

Good luck op, fx for you x

Glad to hear that more dc does not mean more stress!
I am nervous about how I'll cope though. And my health. I have pnd and my first 2 dc were emergency csection

Dc crazy I can deal with, just worried about my health

There's plenty of time to discuss birth options with your mw, please don't panic. Make sure they know your history so they can get support in place for you. And don't forget MN, I'm sure you'll find plenty of support on here too

In the meantime just enjoy grin

Thanks aspie.
Will most definitely be on MN for support smile
