I peed on the stick right before husband and I had a date night. So while I looked longingly at his 20 ounce mug of frosted beer at the restaurant, we talked about how we would manage a third child. We decided it would be hard timing financially and tight in our wee little house. But that our two kids were so awesome, a third surely would be too. Maybe this is what our indecisive selves needed - a kick in the pregnancy pants.
Then like I always do with my pregnancies, I purchased another couple of tests to pee on for prosperity and assurance. But lo and behold, they were all negative! Was the Target test super powered? Super sensitive to my hormonal pee pee?
Nope. Turns out after two weeks of lateness I wasn't pregnant - The Target test just had a false positive. We sort of guessed I was getting hit with some belated, and therefore doubly unfun, PMS on Monday night. The tip off was when I tore husband a new arsehole for something irrelevant like forgetting to buy cheese. Then Tuesday morning we knew for sure - no kid on the way.
But it turns out Target has a rep for bad results with it's early home pregnancy tests.
"I have had so many false positives with this brand. It absolutely broke my heart to learn that 6 tests from 2 different 3 packs were all wrong. I had already told my family and my husband and I were very excited. We were devastated when my blood test came out negative." - Review On Target.com
I also twittered back and forth with FIDGET - who had the same experience with Target's test. Target? Dude? This wasn't a major crisis for us, but I can only imagine the heartbreak this is causing for people trying hard to have a baby, or those that would be really disturbed by a positive result. Maybe time to pull these tests off the shelves till you get this sorted out. Eh?
