Does DH ever wonder why you spend so much time in the bathroom??

    All this POAS stuff is absurd.
    I'm in the bathroom ALL the time with pee sticks. I'm either peeing on a stick, taking apart test casings, or analyzing series of tests from the last few days. I've even thought of leaving work early several times so I can go home and stare at lines.

    My DH is like "are you having some digestive problems? Why are you in there all the freaking time?" Hahahahahaha! I really don't know what to say.

    You know you have a problem when you're hiding evidence (such as the entire trash bin full of wrappers from ICs and the plastic casings from all the store-bought sticks) or covering your tracks by claiming to have diarrhea.
    Who would have thought that someday you would ever willfully tell someone you have diarrhea to cover up an even more shameful problem??

    I realize I have a problem but I refuse to stop. :D

    Me too! My DH wants to stare at them just as much as I do! He gets discouraged faster than me though--I'll take them every day and just keep hoping. :shrug: :)

    I do the same thing. It's as if he knows I'm in there trying to do something. Strange sense I dont have enough sense to lock the door :p

    haha i guess i'm 'lucky' my DH is in the NAVY and is very rarely ever home. :/ I buy the cheapo 99 cent store tests, so even if he does find out, i'm not spending too much $!

    My chart doesn't look so great today :(
    Temp dropped 0.7F and I had AF-like cramping ALL morning.
    However, AF still a no-show so far. Keeping fingers crossed.

    It's weird. I was REALLY sick this AM. Sorry for TMI but I had diarrhea, heavy cramps, and nausea. I thought when I went to the bathroom, AF would start. The cramps were coming in waves. I took a couple of ibuprofen to get ready for it but nothing happened.
    Maybe these are GOOD signs, rather than bad. We shall see...
    If no AF in the next 24 hours, I will be feeling pretty good.

    The worst is when your OH draws the curtains and there are 3 pee sticks lined up that have accumulated over a couple of days. Pee sticks you had forgotten about, but felt the need to inspect in daylight. I even realised there was one on the kitchen window sill last weekend, we had friends to stay... :wacko: I spotted it whilst making coffees for everyone on sunday morning. Oh the shame!

    And why oh WHY, do our cats insist on chewing them????????? I am so disgraced with myself for allowing them to find them.. :laugh2:

    I always do them when my husband is gone to work and then bury them in the trash. He would just laugh at me and be angry I was wasting money on tests.

    Hahahaha, luckily our cats haven't gotten hold of any...yet!
    One time DH's brother came over before I got home from work. Normally, if guests were coming over I would hide all evidence of OPKs/HPTs, but I didn't have a chance. He didn't say anything but I know he must think I'm crazy. I had a whole bunch of CBFM sticks lined up on the counter. How embarrassing.

    I am sure he will laugh at me once i get my BFP but until then it is my little secret...lol
