    I have tested out the dollar store brands when i knew for a fact i wasnt pregnant because i was curious on how reliable those things really were. so awhile ago i picked up a few and did my test...two of the tests said i was pregnant with both being nice pink lines. of course i knew it was lying.

    I picked up a few for this month but i also bought a first response test to do my final testing.

    has anyone come across any problems with the dollar store brands?

    i bought a few ones for a pound each a wee while ago and all said negative, and i wasn't pregnant. that's the only experience i have!

    p.s. your wee bundle is beautiful!

    From what I've read, I think its quite rare to get a false positive reading, so the batch you bought may be dodgy! You might be better off buying some in bulk off the net, can be just as cheap too! xxx
