POAS Police

I need this guy to come to my home right now:
Tip: need a good way to pass the 2WW? Photoshop, baby!

Because this morning...I peed on a stick. At only 9dpo. Oh yes, I went there!

Before you start scolding, let me explain: I'm not normally an early pee-er. I'm really not. But for some reason, I'm feeling restless this cycle. So after obsessing about it for HOURS last night, I decided to POAS this morning, knowing full well that the odds of actually getting a positive result if (emphasis on the "if"!) I'm knocked up are pretty much nil. It does sometimes happen this early, but it's uncommon. I did it solely to get the POAS fever out of my system - and it worked! Obviously it was a big fat negative, but I now feel much calmer.

My official testing date is Sunday, although we'll see if I actually get to that point; the one advantage to spotting before Aunt Flo shows up is that it saves you money on pee sticks - if I see as much as a single spot, I'm foregoing testing and writing this cycle off. I usually start spotting on 12dpo, but last time it started on 10dpo...so we'll see how the next couple of days go.

P.S. Thanks for everyone's support about finding a new doctor; I've looked in the Yellow Pages and have already picked one out to call the minute that Aunt Flo shows up - she specializes in treating women, so hopefully she will be able to help (and hopefully I'll be able to get in to see her). I love my doc, but I really don't think she's being proactive enough about the Mystery of the Disappearing Period.


  1. It's so hard to wait to test. Good luck in the next couple of days!

  2. My fingers and toes are crossed for you.
    Are you going ot keep this Doctor if you're KU this month?

  3. I understand your impatience. Don't apologize for being eager to know the results. You know I've got every body part I possess crossed and double-crossed for you! I'm like a human pretzel!!

    PS: Love your mad Photoshop skillz!

  4. Bwaahahah! I love the graphic...it's hilarious! FWIW, I was an earlier POAS pusher too...at least my first cycle (started at 8DPO!)...then learned the hard way and held off after that.

    Sending you tons of BFP dust! And I am glad you're searching for a new doc...seems like the best thing to do. Good luck!

  5. I'm like you and did it at 9 dpo on Monday as well. Not sure WHY I just HAD to do it then, but I did, and got the result I expected. The jury is still out for me though.

  6. Hula, I'm not sure...I keep wavering between wanting to stay with her (I do like her and she is a good doc, this one thing excepted) and wanting to go somewhere else just on principle. :-P
