Surprising Answers to "Where Were You When You Took Your Pregnancy Test?"

Surprising Answers to "Where Were You When You Took Your Pregnancy Test?"When you ask someone where they took their pregnancy test, the obvious answer is “in the washroom”, right? Well, if you go beyond that question and wonder which washroom or where were you — you may be surprised by some of the answers you hear.

When my husband and I were trying to conceive our first child, I was doing a lot of basal body temping and I worked overnight somewhere. That morning when I took my temperature I was convinced I was pregnant. I didn’t want to wait until the next morning for the higher concentrated urine — so I took my test there at work (and it was positive!)

I asked some friends of mine and fellow Babble readers the question because I was sure I was not the only one who took a test outside of my own house. I posed the question on Facebook, “Where did you take your pregnancy test? (beyond “the bathroom” — were you at home? at work? at a bar? at a friends house?).”
