Did You Save Your Pregnancy Tests?

Did you save your pregnancy tests or toss them? Credit:

Maybe I’m a weirdo, but I saved my positive pregnancy tests when I found out I was pregnant with my daughter. I actually saved three of them. They’re currently in a plastic baggie in her keepsake box of baby paraphernalia. While it sounds a little weird to save something you peed on, it’s actually quite common. And I don’t think it’s that gross. Of all of the gross things I’ve dealt with in motherhood, it is probably the mildest on the grossness scale.

When I tested with baby No. 2, I just couldn’t bring myself to throw away that test. Or tests, as yes, of course I tested more than once. I just couldn’t bring myself to throw away the first tangible evidence of that little person. So into the plastic baggie they go, saved to look—and laugh—at in the future. What about you?

    I am with you on that one. I could NOT throw away the proof that I was pregnant with my little guy who is now three! I was 19 and a first time mommy and oh-so-so happy and that was my first keepsake of being a mommy! And I assure you with the next babies I will save their tests too! The only thing that is kinda creepy but I didn’t get to save because it fell off and I have no idea where it went was his umbilical part that the doctor clamped up…it just disappeared into thin air it seems like…

    I saved the two I took to find out I was having my son but looking at them like a week later they no longer said pregnant so keeping them became a little strange for me.
