Where to Take Home Pregnancy Test

Where Did You Take Your Pregnancy Test?

Would you pop a squat just anywhere to take a home pregnancy test? The privacy of your home bathroom may seem like the ideal place to pee on a stick – or the not-so-private home bathroom in the case of Bethenny Frankel – but many women can't wait that long to see their pregnancy results. A new study by First Response found that one in 20 women headed to the restroom at work to see if their test showed two little lines. We've also seen women on both the small and large screen sneaking into hotel bathrooms (Friends), convenience stores (Juno), and airports (What I Like About You) to take the tests. Where did you take yours?

When my period didn't come I was so sure of it, I didn't even think to take one. So I took mine in the bathroom of a pregnancy counselor's office. I remember her saying to me, "Let's have you take this test and make sure you're really pregnant."

at home in the bathroom--it felt like forever staring at that little stick!

I took one at work, but I worked in a doctors office, and used one from our office supply. I think it's a little different from buying one at the drug store and doing it in a business office. However, I can understand the sense of needing to know right away an doing it on your lunch!

I was at home in the bathroom also. My boyfriend was at work, and I drank about fifteen glasses of water so I would have to pee. I was all alone at home and when I saw those two lines I said "OH MY GOD!" I couldn't believe it :)

I took the first one at home, right before leaving on vacation, and didn't quite believe it because the line was barely visible. Still, I decided to forego having a drink on the plane. I took the second test in the hotel bathroom and had my husband read it.

I was at home. It was my hubby's birthday and I wrapped a pregnancy test in a Red Sox bib. He said, "Are you pregnant?" I started to tear up and said, "I don't know. I haven't taken a test yet." All excited he said, "Well go pee on this!" We were in our bathroom when we found out the exciting news.

At home in the bathroom. I wasn't sure if I was late (I went off the pill 2 months prior, and didn't have regular cycles yet) but I thought Hey, what the hell. I was shocked to see 2 lines !
