The Must-Have Pregnancy Tool – First Response Early Result Pregnancy Test


I participated in a Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for First Response. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

I will never forget taking pregnancy tests for each of my three children. There were negative test results in between positives, of course, but oh. my. word. The thrill of seeing those two pink lines pop up – POSITIVE! – is just unlike anything else. You know your world is about to change in amazing ways, and you immediately have a need to protect. 

To tell my husband about being pregnant with our first child, I put my First Response test in a Converse shoe box with some baby Converse shoes, and told my hubby I’d gotten him a new pair of shoes. The look on his face when he opened the box was priceless!

Of course, if you’ve ever been in that phase of testing… and testing… and testing again, you know how agonizing the wait can be. One day feels like one year (and seriously, waiting for first morning urine – or “FMU” as all the books lovingly call it – rather than testing at night is so hard)!

First Response tests were always my tests of choice, because they were easy to read and, well, because everyone I knew used them. Another reason? I could test earlier. First Response is able to detect pregnancy six days before a missed period. You get easy-to-read results in 3 minutes, with over 99% accuracy from the day of your expected period. And you don’t even have to wait until morning to test – First Response allows you to test any time of day.

Now there are even more reasons to love the First Response:


The wider tip makes it easier to actually, err… hit the test (I mean, come on, you’re testing blindly). The easy read window was easy before, and now it’s EASY to read. And the longer handle is just pure genius. It makes taking the test much less awkward.



You can find the newly redesigned First Response Early Pregnancy Test at major drug stores, mass retailers and grocery stores, retailing from $8.99-$15.99. If you’re trying to get pregnant, you’ll want to have it in your cabinet!
