5 Ways to Save Your Used Pregnancy Tests FOREVER

Momlogic's Momstrosity: If you're like most of us, your first memento of being pregnant is most likely a stick you peed on. Now, one pregnancy-test manufacturer has devised a way to keep that memento with you forever. 


EPT has come up positive for a keepsake idea based on a survey they conducted on their site. According to the results, over 41 percent of us save our positive pregnancy tests in a Ziploc baggie. (The other 59 percent, I guess, toss them.)

Introducing EPT's method of cashing in on sentimental moms: Their "Remember the Moment You Knew" Keepsake Gift is a little purple bag that encases your memento in something one step up from a baggie. The bag is available free with the purchase of any EPT product.

I personally like the idea of saving a positive pregnancy test (in hindsight, I wish I'd saved mine), but the bag idea doesn't really do it for me. I don't think the pregnancy test should have to be hidden away undercover. No, I think there's oh so much more to do with that little plastic stick of success. So before the handmade community of Etsy gets on the bandwagon, (or more likely Regretsy) I would like to propose some other ways to emotionalize your pregnancy stick (or sticks, if you've been trying for a looooong time):

I like the idea of a bag for the tests! It took me 2 years, in my early 20’s to get pregnant. I couldn’t bare the idea of getting rid of that stick. I use to look at it while I was pregnant and too early to tell and feel that happiness and relief over and over again. (I was facing fertility treatment when I conceived) I’m not going to run out and look for something, but it’s nice the industry has recognized the desire to hold on to these sentimental things and are accommidating free of charge!

You PEED on it. It is unsanitary to keep it. You have your baby as a memento, if you really need one. Just toss them already. If my mom handed me a keepsake book and there was a stick she peed on in it, I would be utterly disgusted. Gee thanks mom, a stick you peed on 20 years ago. And LOOK 20 years of bacteria!!! YAY!!!!

theres nothing unsanitary about urine. once that thing is dry theres nothing nasty about it. you dont want a wet one dripping all over the place but thats why most have caps.
