What to Put on Your Baby Registry

Exited about your upcoming baby shower? Going to stores like Target, Wal-Mart and Babies R’ Us to create your gift registry is so much fun. With your gift bag and scanner in hand you’re off to pick out all the cute baby stuff you’ve had your eyes on since that test showed up positive. But, in addition to cute clothes and toys there are many other things that you are going to want to make sure that are on your list.

At Home Pregnancy Tests

Think you might be pregnant? Wondering and waiting to be far enough along to take an at home test can be agonizing. Each day that goes by feels like an eternity when all you can do is look at the pregnancy test box. But how do you know when it is time to take the at home test and which home test is the best? How do you know that your positive results are in fact positive and can a false pregnancy test be wrong? There are many different brands of tests out there and they all vary greatly in price so if you are trying to get pregnant make sure that you are making the right choice as you will probably be buying multiples.
