Just an observation...


This was our first month trying (unsucessessfly I might add) and I was using HPTs like they were going out of style!

Anyway, I know a lot of the girls on here prefer the digital hpt's b/c the answer is clear but honestly I find them condescending! To look at a stick and only see one line is much better than a stupid stick saying "NOT PREGNANT!"

Just my observation... rant over!

Yeah, those digitals feel like they're mocking you if they're negative! And under how many different lights will you view the ones with the pink lines...maybe under the kitchen light I'll see a very faint line!

Re: Just an observation...

I venture to say that many people use the digitals to confirm what a regular HPT has already told them. To me, seeing one line is just as hard to take as seeing the words. On the rare occasions that I DID buy HPTs, I always bought regular ones. It was my plan to buy a digital for photo ops and confirmation as they are too expensive for chance.

I do use digital OPKs as (in most cases) if used as directed and if all is right with one's cycle, they show up with a Chat Icon no matter what.

I feel your pain. I use the regular ones for testing and the digital to confirm also. I had 3 days of light positives (that got darker each day) with regular hpt's this cycle. Only to see a non pregnant mocking me this morning when I tested. It was aweful Chat Icon.

Go to the Dollar Tree! Otherwise, you will go broke buying pee-sticks! When we were TTC, I would pee on 2 or 3 a day sometimes!

Me too!!

The digital tests are not as sensitive as many other tests, so it takes longer for them to come up as a BFP. I've heard some girls go as long as 2 weeks after a BFP until the digital told them they were pregnant. Personally, I never used a digital. (But I did POAS 7 times after my BFP because I didn't believe it! Chat Icon )

Digitals take time. Did you retest this morning with a regular?

It sure is. My DH saw the HPT at $ tree and bought me 20 Chat Icon He said he was going broke with me testing all the time with the name brand test. Now we only get the test at $ tree. We will only use a digital for photo shots and for a 2nd confirmation.
