Brian & Am&a
In the ten months we were approved, we only heard from one girl. We decided to go on to "Parent Profiles" since our year mark was approaching. TWO MONTHS after being on "Parent Profiles" a prospective birthmother found us through them! She has chosen us to be the parents of her baby and we are so thrilled. We can't believe how fast it took! The next time we adopt, we are coming back here for SURE! more ...
Waiting to find out if you are pregnant is one of the most nerve wracking times in any woman's life. Whether you are trying or not, your future can change on the outcome of one little stick. Deciding which stick to buy can be equally nerve wracking. A typical store carries 5-10 different brands of pregnancy tests, so how does one choose?
Perhaps the most important criteria have to do with timing. If you have yet to have your menstrual period and don't expect it for a few days, few pregnancy tests can accurately give you a result. If you are past your expected period day then you have more options. A Fact Plus Select test can give you a positive result with as little as 40 ml of HCG. This amount of the pregnancy hormone should be present about 7-10 days after implantation.
If you fail to get a positive result and your period has not arrived, wait a few days and retest. If the results are still negative, speak with your doctor to discuss your options. There may be another reason for your missed period such as stress or health problems.
The Fact Plus pregnancy tests give you a few options when it comes to testing. You can choose to urinate directly on the test strip for the quickest results. If you find this difficult, you may urinate into a clean dry cup or container and then dip the test strip into the sample. Either way is perfectly fine!
Lastly, consider price. While some tests may be less expensive, that doesn't mean that they will give you the same accurate results. Some require you to be further along in your pregnancy before achieving a positive reading. For the best deal, considering buying a pack of 2 or 3 test sticks. That way you can test again if your results are negative.
