    Up & Up tests?

    Just wondering if anyone here has used Up and Up brand (Target's new brand name) pregnancy tests and if so, if you found them to be reliable or not. Thanks!

    Hi again. I am unsure whether it is a new/revamped test or just new packaging/marketing. However, I will tell you all that I am most UNimpressed with these HPTs because I got a positive on a day that was definitely too early for any positive HPT (don't ask... I'm a POAS-addict), followed by a negative the very next day. Plus , one showed a horizontal line instead of a vertical line, which it isnt supposed to do, even though I followed directions. What gives?? Anyway, I do not recommend these...

    They are a blue dye test. I am not so fond of those either...

    Well, that might be one reason.

    I will NEVER get a blue dye test... AGAIN! I had taken one and it was confusing.. like you stated... was thinking *maybe* I was preg.. went to the dr and NOPE. That was over 5 years ago and never again bought one. I had a friend send me a box of tests.. they happened to be blue dye... they were never easy to read... an Effie positive... when they should have been a for sure one. Even the EPT digital.. is a BLUE DYE TEST! I cracked it open after the battery died.. and It was hardly a positive looking test.. when my beta was over 3300!!

    Stick to PINK!! That is my advise!!

    FerretMommy- thanks for the advice. I agree- most blue dye tests are confusingor ambiguous... of course, occasionally I like to torture myself by using one and wondering if just maybe I might be pregnant LOL just kidding...

    Any suggestions on good pink dye HPTs? (brands)

    I personally LOVE the First Response tests. I found some on e-bay that were so cheap! The boxes were smashed, but they were a 3 pack for like 5 bucks and free shipping, so I bought a few boxes!! Nothing was wrong with the actual tests and they were not expired!

    I also like the FRED GOLD.. which is the digital test. I got a YES on 12 DPO... with BOTH and was shocked. I had a faint line on one and thought, why not try it now.. and it worked!

    I think I have used the Walgreens and Target brands in the past, but I looked for the pink dye and had normal, non guessing results.

    I am NOT a fan of the dollar tree.. even though I was getting BFP, it was hard to read those as well.

    Good Luck!

    FM- Thanks again for the advice. One more question for you (or anyone else who is reading this)... how soon is too soon to test? I am only approx. 6dpo today and already the wait is killing me. Ack! If I use an early detection HPT like First Response, how soon can I reliably test? I am not due to get AF for a week or so...
