Well, Is That a Second Line or Not? What Pregnancy Tests Should Really Say

Whether you want to be pregnant or are hoping that the symptoms you’re experiencing  is just PMS, taking a pregnancy test is stressful. They are expensive, you never really know if it’s too early to take one (I mean, you usually know, but hope that you will be one of the ones who know their answer sooner) and sometimes the answer on the test is ambiguous and confusing.

There are digital tests now which make things a bit more clear unlike double pink line tests or blue plus sign ones. Seriously, I’ve had many days where I’m looking at the test under different lights, squinting and asking everyone ‘does that look like a line to you?’. It’s totally impersonal.

So, I thought about what I would like pregnancy tests to say and my answer is — smart digital pregnancy tests. Ones that know whether you want to see the word ‘pregnant’ or not and just know the right thing to say for your situation — good or bad.

Click through to see what I think would make pregnancy test much easier to read:
