You purchase a lot of pregnancy tests.

You hate the pregnancy test. Sometimes you’re excited to take the test but most of the time, you don’t know why you bought it in the first place. Pregnancy tests are costly, drive you to depression and 99.9 per cent of the time, the results are negative. You just threw your money down the toilet. Literally. The sad news is that you will probably have to buy them again and again. So what can you do with all those leftover tests? Don’t throw them out. Re-use and Return!

  1. Return the negative tests to the store claiming that it did not have the desired results. You were not 100% satisfied with the product. Try scratching out the (one) line using an eraser or a marker so the test looks (almost) brand new!
  2. Use the leftover tests as drum sticks and form a killer rock band called “The Infertile and the Negatives.” Then audition for American Idol.
  3. Plant the negative tests in a garden planter and try to grow a baby. Two negatives equal a positive, right?
  4. Draw two lines on every negative stick. Next time a nosy relative asks if you’re pregnant, throw the tests at her and scream “Of course I am. Here’s the proof, grandma!
  5. Give them out as party favors when attending your next baby shower.

See. Those negative pregnancy tests can be fun!

    How about using them like Lincoln Logs. You can use them to build anything! Heck even throw some other left over infertile reminders… like the used sticks from the CBEFM!

    I actually asked a friend that worked at Walmart if I could return them because the box shows two pink lines and mine only had one… He told me to try it! I haven't yet, but it does cross my mind a lot!

    When you pass them out as party favors at the baby shower whisper to a few of the guests that it's just a pillow under the woman's shirt and that the negatives are the real ones.

    I've heard rumors that you can buy pregnancy tests at the dollar store and they're pretty much the same as the pricey ones. Has anyone ever seen them?

    Two negatives DO equal a positive. It's science. Look it up. Next time I POAS I'm taking two tests at the same time.

    I did a "green" post where I think of things to do with my used sticks, and settled on rebuilding New Orleans after Katrina.

    LOVE IT! I am so in on the band "Infertiles and the Negatives". I can be the singer (I practice in my shower every day). LOVE LOVE LOVE your outlook!

    Ah, ha, ha, ha. Pass them out as party favors. Fertiles have baby showers. Why can’t we have infertility showers? We could register for fertility teas, IVF treatments, pregnancy tests, fertility monitors,…
