Weird Question for the Board

    How accurate are home pregnancy tests?

    Me and the Mrs. are batting two-for-two.

    We've used two different brands and scored a positive on each.

    It's funny. We're both kinda like "naahhh....really? you think?"

    First, mazel tov.

    Secondly, one of the former took one once and it was negative.

    Thirdly, if it's 5 for 5, then mazel tov again, Daddy!

    He did. Then he informed me of his plan to create Slappy 4429. I shut him down.

    They're pretty damned accurate, esp. the stick ones. You and the wife should have a blood test done to confirm (of course), and to make sure everything is OK.

    Oh, and congrats!

    If you're 2-for-2 (2-of-2??) I can recommend a good mid-wife. You'll need it

    Way to throw it to your wife, Sue. Planted that seed like it was a touchdown spike.

    A little more than nine months from now, the greatest day of your life.

    Then a lot of shit for, like, three months.

    Then a mix of shit and joy for, like, six months.

    Then a lot of joy, straight up.

    Oh, and soon you'll cry over anything. I used to think "Wires" by Athlete was just a good song. Now I hear it, and I'm driving off the road through a curtain of tears.

    And I would give anything for ten hours of sleep... Anything but my baby boy, that is.

    It's amazing how you'd die in a finger snap to protect what is essentially a smiling, featherless turkey.

    Oh, and don't eat out your wife if she breastfeeds. It'll taste like metal down there. You might as well lick a waffle iron for all the fun it'll be.

    What were we talking about again?

    FWIW, I'm pretty sure you can routinely get a false negative with home pregnancy tests, but rarely a false positive.
    The test searches for a hormone present in pregnant women.
