Cheap Pregnancy Tests


If this post makes anyone uneasy...I am so sorry, but I simply must share this deal. I want to make sure everyone who is in or near their child bearing years knows this tip.
Most Dollar Tree stores carry pregnancy tests for $1.00...actually, $1.05 with tax. This is by no means an announcement from us, I just realized that not everyone knows about this deal...otherwise, no one would pay $7.00-$11.00 for the "other" brand tests. You may wonder about the accuracy of the tests...but stop your worrying. They are 99.9% accurate (as with all other tests) and remember any pregnancy test is right if it is positive...you either have the HCG hormone in your system or you don't. Occasionally, a pregnancy test will show a negative when you really are preggo, but this error is possible with any home pregnancy test. It could be a faulty test or a low HCG level due to a young (5 weeks or less) pregnancy. My recommendation...buy 3 or 4 tests and if you get a negative and after a few days you still "don't feel right" take another test first thing in the morning just to check. In fact...take 3 of them and you have still saved a few dollars! However, if you get a positive...take no more tests...just scream with excitement and start feeling yucky!

Anne,
I can attest that they work just fine! I bought one from our Dollar Tree here after a friend told me about them. I also had a couple concerns as to whether a dollar store test would work as well as the pricier ones, but it did. Ruthanne arrived several months later! :)

Ummm...so do you keep these on hand to randomly take pictures of them or do you have it for a reason?

No, I don't have them on hand since there is a dollar tree about 1 mile from my house...however, I wanted to take a pic of one so that people knew what to look for when they go into the store. I had no clue until I stumbled on them one day...

These are the only pregnancy tests I've ever used (except for the time when I didn't believe I really had a positive DT one), and they've always been accurate for me. Dan had to laugh at me, though, because I always believed them when they were negative especially the first time we were trying to get pregnant. But, when I finally got a positive one, I said, "Well, it's from the Dollar Tree." So I took two more that day, and they were both positive and then I told Dan we had to go out and buy a "real" one at Walmart -- -you know, such a big step up from the Dollar Tree -- at least in price. :-)
