    I found the first response one best for when you simply cannot wait to get your period, and I also love the clearblue ones, the digital one is good coz it has a conception indicator so you can work out how many weeks you are and I also love the standard clearblue with the cross for positive, always get excited when I see that cross appear!!

    But saying that I did practically use every test on the market this time round (i'm a paranoid tester) and found the supermarket ones to be just as good. The only downside is they go a funny yellow colour after a few weeks so they're not ideal if you'replanning on keeping it as memories!

    oh and good luck...... xx

    I like the clear blue - says pregnant or not pregnant - none of the line business. Also tells you how many weeks.

    Personally I hate the blue dye +/- ones. I've gotten 2 false positives. This time around I bought a bunch of the dollar tree ones and a three pack of first response. I took the dollar tree ones every day until I saw a faint positive then took the first response over the next three days. It was fun watching them get darker and show faster :thumbup:

    I used Clear Blue for my DS and Clear Blue again this time round (one with + /-). I tested the day of missed period and going to check again in the morning :)
