“I participated in a Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for First Response. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”
When David and I were trying to conceive, we tried for months with no luck. Finally we just agreed to wait a year before trying again but low and behold, I found out I was pregnant two weeks later. With my first son I knew something was off with my body at 6 weeks. Of course, I followed up my concerns with a pregnancy test which confirmed my suspicions. Taking a pregnancy test between 6-8+ weeks is normally when most people find out that their pregnant.
With this pregnancy, I grabbed a First Response early result pregnancy test from a local drug store to find out if my suspicions were correct again. When we went to the doctor I guesstimated that I was about 8 weeks as it had been a week and a half since I took the test. After getting my blood drawn, the doctor decided to do an internal ultrasound and from there we found out that I was only 5 weeks along. My mind was blown. How did I find out that I was pregnant so early?!
When I think about how many pregnancy tests I had used with my first son to receive a positive result and how long it took to display my result, I’m baffled at how far pregnancy tests have come. Before you had to wait until after your first missed period but now First Response has created an FDA approved pregnancy test that you can take as early as SIX days before the FIRST day of your missed period since it can detect all relevant forms of hCG throughout pregnancy. Though you still have to wait 3 minutes for a result, First Response is able to show you those two little pink lines for a positive pregnancy result any time of day with 99% accuracy from the first day of your missed period. Need one? You can pick them up for $8.99-$15.99 depending on which major drugstore, grocery store, or mass retailer store you go to.
The test I used then(April 2014) was the original design so I did still pee on myself a little when taking the test(sorry for the TMI!). However, their new and improved design is way better! The test is curved so you can hold it easier and has a longer handle with a 50% wider tip so you can keep the pee off of you!
After finding out all this information about First Response’s early result pregnancy test, its no wonder I was able to find out that I was pregnant with my second son at 3 weeks. With all the advancements First Response has incorporated, I don’t know how it can get any better than now…or at least I would think not but technology has a way of proving us wrong!
