Would you trust an expired Clear Blue Easy Digital?
 
Yeah, so I found a couple Clear Blue Easy Digital pregnancy tests that I had when I was pregnant with my son. I apparently never took them because once I new I was pregnant, the dye tests were so much more fun then a simple Pregnant/Not Pregnant. Anyway, the expiration date on the packaging is April 2012. So, expired by 5 months. When I opened it up, it didn't do anything. I feel like I remember (instructions are long gone) that there was supposed to be something that came on the digital screen. Then, for no apparent reason I peed on it anyway even though I believed the battery was dead. After peeing on it, the timer icon came up. And then...3 minutes later...PREGNANT. :holysheep::jawdrop::thud:

So, would you trust it? (And of course I had 2 beers tonight!) Clearly I'm sending DH out for some more tests tonight after DS goes to bed. But, I'm impatient. What do you ladies think?

I would be inclined to. My thoughts would be that with an expired test you would be more likely to get a negative result when you are in fact pregnant. The test losing sensitivity rather than giving a false positive. Of course I could be wrong and the opposite is true. :-)

On the other hand just having had used and read the instructions for it sounds like test worked perfectly. Nothing shows up on the screen until you pee on it then you get the hour glass till it comes up pregnant / not pregnant.

You better update :-) and congrats most likely.

I completely agree. I would expect an invalid result or a false negative :)

Oh, and the screen is always blank until it gets peed on :)

Oh my goodness! Thanks ladies! I'm currently nursing DS down, but just heard DH get back from the store. We were trying, but for some reason I wasn't expecting it to work!!! :-)
