I have not, but I have considered it.
Mary -- you just meant you have not........ Y.E.T.!!!!!!! I'm thinking that hanging around here may have influences beyond your control!
Guilty. In the mall bathroom and at work, several times. No good stories like the rest of you ladies, but I'm kind of glad DH was with me when I tested the first 2 PG's and that he was the 1st to know the last one.
Jessica, I was in stitches with your story. Too funny! But when you gotta know, you gotta know!
Oh, good one Missy! I'm like totally not pg but love lurking here.
I poas in the very dimly lit bathroom at my doctor's office b/c they wanted to give me sleeping pills and asked if I was pg. I said probably not even though we were ttc, so I bought a FRER and took it to the bathroom right away. As I was actually peeing, barely able to see if I was getting any on the stick, I lifted one butt cheek and the sensor on the toilet went off and started spraying water all over my bits. I thought for sure the test was toast, but a big bright bfp. Ha ha.
Ha, these are hilarious. I have tested once in a store and many times in the office bathroom. We have one fully enclosed (floor to ceiling walls) bathroom stall that people use to umm...go number 2. Well I'm pretty sure the ladies across the hall think I have serious IBS or something because I'd post up in that bathroom and squint for minutes before I went back to my desk.
Gosh you all have such terrific stories! I love them all!
I had someone send me this via pm in order to remain "anonymous". (Seriously - this is nothing to be ashamed of! Come on out and claim it!! It is a great story!)
This member was out camping with her 2 kids, dh, AND the in-laws. She had brought the test along as she had previous disappointments with early testing but knew she would not be able to relax as the trip was to last 8 days. She purposefully got up early on "THE DAY"... creeped away from camp to a spot she'd previously staked out for privacy. (Btw, she shared that it was extremely hard to crouch and hold the stick properly!) All was COMPLETELY quiet....
Suddenly, she heard something come crashing through the woods. Thinking it was a bear or other wild animal, she DROPPED the stick... began running with her pants down (NOT a good combo) and fell face forward into the dirt.
She wishes she could have stayed there as she ended up mooning her FIL.
After dusting off what was left of her dignity and completely avoiding ANY eye contact with dear ol' dad -- she still went back to retrieve the stick.
IT was ............
BFN. Seriously -- for *THAT* she should have gotten a positive don't you think??
She did........ after she got home again.
Moral of the story: Don't go pee on a stick in the woods with a bear -- OR your FIL present. It scares the bfp's away!
Bahahahahahahahahahahaha! That is the best POAS story I have EVER heard. Please come forward, mysterious pee-er! You are officially one of my new heros for braving bears and FILs just to POAS....

Got an opinion? We've got a board! Come join us for some lively debate on the Face Off! Debate Arena board.
I work in a pharmacy, and there are used HPT's laying in the trash all the time, lol. I actually don't think I've ever POAS in the store, surprisingly! I did buy one at a Walmart once, then took it to a nearby gas station bathroom to use it, hahahaha... That was in my younger days in my 2nd year of college and I was desperately hoping for a BFN (which I got, haha). But someone kept knocking on the door, so I couldn't even stay for the 5-min time limit. So I had to go back and do the other test in the dorm late that night.
