Earlier, Easier, and More Accurate Pregnancy Results from First Response!

I participated in a Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for First Response. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. All opinions expressed are my own.

My daughter was born in 2010, which was quite some time ago. Regardless of the amount of time that has passed and memory lapses that come along with being a busy mom, the journeys of conception, pregnancy, and childbirth are ones I'll never forget!

July 2010 - just a couple short days
before my daughter was born!
I'll certainly never forget the moment I found out that I was pregnant - but I'll also never forget that grueling and infamous "two-week-wait" - formally termed the TWW on all the online TTC boards (that stands for "trying-to-conceive" for any of you that haven't visited those online forums!). You know that time I mean, right? That time between what you hope was conception and the time when you can actually confirm it. It's brutal. You have very few people, if any at all, to talk to about your secret, and you are super aware of any and every twitch in your body. You google everything with the words "symptom" or "pregnancy" attached to them and regardless of what you search for, you find one website that tells you that you're pregnant and another that tells you that you're not. I've come to conclude that no matter what you think or want the answer to be when you do an online search, you will find it during your two-week-wait. It's the only thing that gets you through the two weeks and yet it's the most frustrating, draining, and ridiculously inaccurate way to determine if you're pregnant.

If you've tried to conceive, I guarantee you've googled, "When can I take a pregnancy test?" Right? Of course! And you've come up with various answers for that too. We all have. You want to test as early as you can because you've been waiting for what feels like a lifetime, and yet, you dread the early test because you are so sure it will be negative. And honestly, if we all tested as soon as we wanted to, our tests would be negative whether we had experienced a successful conception or not.

Well, thanks to some new technology from First Response you can test with 76% accuracy 6 days sooner than the day your missed period. Those are pretty good odds, and they only get better with each passing day!

The new and improved First Response Early Detection Pregnancy Test has some great new features including a new design with a curved shape to fit right in your hand hand, a 50% wider tip, and a longer handle to make the actual testing process a little cleaner and less awkward. It's FDA approved and designed to detect all relevant forms of urinary HCG throughout pregnancy. In fact, like I mentioned earlier, the First Response Early Detection Pregnancy Test detects pregnancy as early as 6 days sooner than the day of your missed period with 76% accuracy! The accuracy increases as you get closer to your period and hit 96% accuracy 4 days before your expected period and 99% accuracy from then on! Results are super easy to read with two pink lines indicating pregnancy. Unlike some tests that are only found to be most effect with the first urine of the day, the First Response Early Result Pregnancy Test can be used at any time of day. 

For most women, finding out about their pregnancy is one of the most exciting moments of their life... as it should be! Thanks to First Response and and what they've done to make early testing more accurate and less awkward, maybe we can eliminate some of the anxiety and mental exhaustion that so often happens while we wait for that special moment to arrive!

You can find the First Response Early Result Pregnancy Test at all major drugstores like CVS and Walgreens, and other mass and grocery stores and it generally retails between $8.99 and $15.99.

Have you received a positive pregnancy test from First Response? I'd love to hear your story!
