I laughed out loud to myself over a silly/dumb PG test error this morning and since we’re not sharing our efforts of TTC or not try not to conceive with friends or family yet, I thought I’d share my story with you. Over the weekend, I ordered 50 test pregnancy strips and they arrived yesterday (LOVE Amazon Prime). While I don’t think that I’m pregnant, I thought I’d try one this morning for fun.
I peed into the cup, put the strip into the urine, set the timer to 5 minutes, etc….did my thing until the timer went off and came back to nothing on the stick. There should be at least one line (the control line); two lines if positive. But there wasn’t anything and I was confused. It took me a few seconds but then I realized that I had inserted the strip into the urine upside down. Turns out I didn’t even really take the test. What a dingbat I am! Good thing that I have 49 more!! I’ll try again tomorrow morning!
Did any of you make any silly mistakes when taking your first home pregnancy test?

I did that with one of my OPK sticks. Totally didn’t even notice that there was a right side and wrong side of the absorbent strip until that happened.

We had a little pregnancy scare when we’d been dating for just under a year. I bought the test, and while I was trying to do it… proceeded to drop the whole thing in the toilet. Needless to say, the toilet water was NOT pregnant.
