What a difference a day makes...or does it? Church and Dwight, Co., Inc. recently announced that their First Response Early Result Pregnancy Test can be used up to six days before a missed period. For want-to-be mamas who are anxious to find out if they are with child, it's exciting news. Some ladies track their cycles while others are a bit more lax about the childbearing process. There are even women who never realize they are expecting until baby makes its debut. How long was it until you figured it out?
Last week while in the checkout line at the dollar store, I noticed pregnancy tests nestled between first aid kits and hydrocortisone cream. My first thought was "OMG! A dollar!? What if those are expired?!" but hey, a test is a test right? When I returned home I Googled the brand and found out I am not the only person wondering about it. Turns out plenty of people have tried them, most of whom found them effective (well at least the people in the forums I read). Would you trust, buy or try a pregnancy test from a dollar store?
It's important for pregnant women to attend routine medical check-ups to make sure everything is alright with both mama-to-be and babe.
But when it comes to prenatal testing, some expectant moms undergo extensive tests so they are aware of what's going on with their child while others choose to let their bump be until delivery.
When it came to screening for maternal and fetal health problems, what did you do?
