Of course! Hopefully it's not a jumbled crying misspelled mess, lol.
Dollar tree it is. I've never taken a blue dye test but I hear they're not reliable.

I used blue dye and had no issues.



But I am pretty sure the dollar tree test are pink dye.

Blue dye is not reliable at all. I have seen way to many people get false positives on them. As for the dollar tests I would suggest getting two of those just because they come up with false positives sometimes but not as often as blue dye.

I knowww :(. I'll hit up the dollar tree tomorrow, if AF doesn't show. I suddenly feel like an irresponsible 15 year old girl.

Go to your local Health department, most offer free testing. I am pregnant, 9 weeks, and this baby is the product of a similar situation.... NEVER thought it would happen!

I was also using the Pull & Pray method...worked for 17months....now here I am 7 weeks pregnant! I have used the dollar tree tests before and the were just as accurate as the others. I definitely think you need to go buy one and test. If you are pregnant you need to begin getting the proper care for your baby. Good luck and keep us posted on what happens! :)

Never said she didn't know...just making a statement. And yes, she would be ok, but I always like to get on prenatal vitamins right away.

Yeah I mean we were using pull-out but I also track my ovulation using basal temp and we don't have sex on those days. Like I said, it worked for 6 years, but last month was very busy and I wasn't paying attention, which you can NEVER do when using NFP. Now I fully realize that I should have also been using condoms, but as they say, hindsight is 20/20. If I am indeed pregnant, I will be seeing my OB starting 9 weeks from LMP.
And yeah I didn't even think about prenatals! Holy god, please come, AF!!
I'll update as soon as I know. :)

I think thats pretty cool nfp/pull out has worked so long for you!! You never know, if you had just been on some other type of birth control you could have been pregnant a long time ago...condoms break, iud's implant into the uterus, hormones dont work etc etc.

Well I have heard they're not reliable but let me tell you....I've used them for four years....never once had an evap. Lol. So I trust them well enough for myself. But I also believe the dollar tree ones are pink dye if I'm not mistaken. Never taken one so I wouldn't know for sure. Haha.



Side note: But holy crap! 6 years using the pull out method. Geesh, we used it like twice and I got pregnant the first time. Lol. Obviously we aren't the best at NFP. But eh....I've had now three birth control babies so I think with me, I'm just extremely fertile mertile over here. :D
