    Hey Ladies,

    Thought we could do with a fun little thread to brighten us up, after a convo in my journo.

    So where is the strangest place you have POAS'd OPK or HPT?

    Mine is boring... at work :haha:

    lol @ DollyDolly! sounds like a girl after my own heart! lol

    mine's not too weird.. I poas at my friend's house.. an ovulation test, was going there straight from work! lol I was like I'm really sorry but I'm gona have to leave my ovulation test on the back of your toilet for a few mins ok? lol

    I also did a test at my Dad's house recently, which was weird cause I didn't want anyone to know, so felt like I had to sneak around and put it in my pocket and such lol was worried I'd bump into someone and it would fall out! reminds me of doing the same thing when I was about 17 when I had a bit of a scare! lol!

    funny thread!!!

    I'm on 14th month of TTC and we've just started having tests/investigations in the last month or so - I hope it's ok to join this thread (I don't know what is classed as long-term but it's certainly starting to feel like long-term to me)

    Anyway, my funniest place so far is in the toilets at the gym! (and work a few times too). I carry a little round plastic tupperware type container with me for at least 2 weeks of the month. One week is for OPKs the other for HPTs!! I'm just pleased that nowadays (aged 38) that I rarely go anywhere that I'd get my bag searched (clubs, concerts etc) - because it would be quite embarrassing if they rummaged through my little bag of OPKs, HPTs, test sticks, CBFM, and plastic container!!!! - oh and sometimes my mooncup is in there too!!) :haha::haha:

    Good luck everyone, hoping that the long-term wait is almost over x :hugs:

    Sunshine - Very Glam! :haha: When we were doing sex eduaction at school they said if you didnt use protection then you'd get preggers..... how very wrong they were! :grr:

    Sweet Tomato - Why does AF always arrive as soon as there are tests involved? Sods law isnt it.

    Its POAS time for me in 2 days.... got to think of somewhere fun to do it....
