DH and I haven’t officially started TTC, but we were planning to soon, and last week it seemed as though someone wanted us to get pregnant! So, I’ve found myself mysteriously and thoroughly engrossed in the two week wait.
I took part in a co-op on DS to get some cheap pregnancy and ovulation tests. I LOVE getting them for such a great price…that just means I can use more and not feel guilty! I even bought a few for my sister-in-law and bff to keep “just in case.”
It started last week, with the ovulation tests. I wanted to get an idea of where I was ovulating in my cycle since I don’t temp or anything like that. I figured I’d start a few months before we officially ttc, so that I could just get an idea of how my cycle was. So that was a good 5 or 6 days of stick peeing right there.
I DID take a short break after ovulating until just the day before yesterday which would have been 5 days past ovulation, and I couldn’t hold back any longer…I think I’ve gone through about 5 in the past few days, trying for any hint of a squinter. Nothing so far…nada, zip, zilch, zero. It’s ok though, because I know it’s still way early. Most women don’t get a positive pregnancy test until the day before or the day of their missed period. I just like to stress myself out and over analyze everything
Who would have ever thought that a bunch of women would be so into ripping open those little foil packets, flinging the corner and silica into the garbage, and with one hand, yanking down their panties, only to pee into said foil pouch and dip that tiny little stick in. Then to stand and watch the color cross the test, fulfill the control line, and cross their fingers while waiting for the other line to gain color. Only to stand for several minutes holding the stick up to the light, turning it this way and that, all while squinting and then reopening their eyes. Only when they’re sufficiently sure there is no second line, do they toss it into the garbage can and leave the bathroom….to run back in twenty minutes later just to drive themselves crazy with a shadow that developed after the five minute time limit!
Oh so wrong…but it feels so good! So, come on out of the woodwork, fellow POAS-aholics! Let the world know that I’m not the only crazy loon peeing on a stick multiple times a day!
