I needed a timeline to sort out all the questions floating through my head. Would I be too far along to go on our planned trip to Hawaii? My employer had been talking about switching insurance companies. Would I still be able to see my same doctor? I wanted to get a test from my OBGYN immediately, but they wouldn't see me for an ultrasound until I was eight weeks along. And again, I had NO CLUE where I fell on that timeline. Quite the dilemma.
The solution? A new test from Clearblue called the Advanced Pregnancy Test with Weeks Estimator. This advanced pee stick is 93% accurate in reporting time since fertilization. It can help women plan for doctor's appointments and morning sickness by measuring for hCG spikes. The company does caution that results are liable to be inaccurate for women carrying multiples or ectopic pregnancies, as hormone levels will be abnormally high in comparison to women pregnant with a single child implanted inside the uterus.
In practice, women have no way of knowing whether they are carrying one or multiple children or an ectopic embryo. However, at $16 for a two pack test, the Clearblue Advanced Pregnancy Test with Weeks Estimator provides a lot more answers and direction than pregnancy tests of the past. Plus, it still offers a reliable 99% accuracy rate for detecting all pregnancies. After a trial run with our beloved dollar store tests, this is definitely the one we'd turn to for official confirmation. It's like the Miss Cleo of pregnancy tests, helping you plot your future with just a little extra insight.- By Chelsea Day
