Ahem, Target.

I've been getting quite a few emails from other moms who have also gotten false positives with their Target early pregnancy tests. I love Target but they need to step up and correct this, it's really breaking my heart. This false positive problem is obviously a wide spread issue since the complaints are even in Target's own web site's reviews.

Target - mom's are your primary target audience correct? Don't alienate your best customers with this situation. Do what you need to do. Get a bunch of your non pregnant employees to keep peeing on sticks till you're sure you've got this figured out. But do figure it out my friends, I don't want to have to go shop at the Walmart.

Makes me wonder now about the positive Target test I got with The Pea. Every other test was negative, Target brand finally gave me a positive - but maybe it was just coincidence and I had a dud???

Either way, this is ridiculous. If it's happening to this many moms they need to be pulled from the shelves. I can't imagine those people who have been trying for years going through this heartache.

Oh and for the record, a third Mom-o-matic baby would rock! ;-)

This is really ridiculous! I wonder how we could get Target's attention? I know a news anchor... I'm sending her a link to this post!

I hate Walmart, everytime I walk in there I feel a tightening in the chest. As for another baby, I know I don't know you AT ALL, but three was the hardest number of children to juggle for me. Two the easiest, Four overwhelming, but still not as rough as three for some reason. It also depends on the ages of your other kids blah blah blah. Now I sound like one of those bitch women who give you advice online. Whoops! I'm not an old bitchy ugly woman. I'm nice!

walmart brand pg tests are WAY more reliable then Target.

When my tests were a false ++ it really ticked me off. What do you do, bring back peed on sticks? And lets not even get into all the money I spent buy OTHER tests to try and figure out what the hell happened.

This has been going on for quite awhile and Target has yet to do ANYTHING.

Did you see the review on their site where a MAN got a +++ ?

Yes, Target, do something about those pee sticks! Nobody wants to have to shop at Wal-Mart!

The difference in those two places is incredible.

You can add my name to the list! I've been TTC for 10 years now. I got two positives with the up and up brand of pregnancy test and I am not pregnant :( Great way to break your heart! I did call target to report it and hope that everyone else does to!
