    Whilst trying not to obsess about TTC I have spent most of this morning doing random related web searches and just found this article, it made me laugh so I thought I'd share it!
    :rofl:


    - the Big 'O' no longer refers to orgasm, but instead to ovulation

    - you show everyone who will look at your bbt charts

    - every twinge is a potential sign: ovulation pain OR perhaps implantation

    - it no longer strikes you as the least bit odd to check out at the pharmacy with both HPTs and tampons in your cart.

    - you schedule your social events around your ovulation day

    - if your OPK comes up +, you cancel all social engagements that night so you can BD & lie with your legs elevated and butt up in the air afterwards

    - you talk using mysterious acronymns that only your ttc buddies understand: ttc, BD, ewcm, bbt, opk, 2ww

    - your morning motto is: "Don't talk to me until I've taken my temperature"

    - you take your temperature more than once a day (committed TTCer)

    - you refuse to finish decorating that 3rd bedroom in your new house, because you can't stand the thought of getting it just the way you want it only to have to tear it apart next month in order to make room for the nursery you'll be needing.

    - you put off buying any fall/winter clothes, because you hope they won't fit by the time the weather gets cooler.

    - you clip coupons for OPKs and HPTs

    - your doctor says, "Now take these home and inject this needle into your stomach every day" and you don't even flinch.

    - you spend more on OPKs, HPTs, and fertility supplements than you do on clothes

    - the thought of nausea makes your heart skip a beat!

    - you make a mental note of what day of your cycle it is before you say "ok" to a drink

    - you get sick but make sure you can take the medicine in case you are pregnant...and would rather stay sick if you can't take the medicine..

    - you finally look forward to mornings! Another opportunity to take and record your temp!

    - you refer (and think) of your husband, not as his real name, but as the letters "DH" in real life

    - you suffer silently from Infertility Vision (IV) - defined as the ability to see pink lines that nobody else can see. It's a very common condition among POASers during the days leading up to the official test day. Research is still being done, but at present there is no cure for it!
