How many...

have peed on a stick using the store restroom (or at minimum, not waiting to get home?)

I had a laugh with a friend that is ttc. She shared that she was so incredibly excited to test as this was her first charting cycle that she bought the test in Wal-mart and went immediately in the bathroom. She dropped the packaging and instructions on the floor -- THEN accidentally *kicked* it just enough that it went outside the door.

She said a woman in there with a crying little boy nudged it back under and said "Hope you get the answer you're wanting!"

She wanted to know that she wasn't alone in not wanting to wait to get home to test. Anyone else?

HA!! You all are great! I shared this with her and she said she feels *much* better. (She also squealed in delight that we have a board TOTALLY dedicated to pee results. ROFL She's waiting on a new computer but claimed she may just have to head to the library to join in!)

Keep the stories coming! I love the laugh!

It's amazing that with as many sticks as I've peed on that I've never done it in a store bathroom. I have POAS in a hotel bathroom at like 5am with babies sleeping in the other room. Do you know how difficult it is to squint at a 10dpo "line" in that unnatural of lighting? I do. Biggrin

Tonya: That is hilarious! Smile Thanks for sharing!

Andrea -- too funny. Judging from your ticker I'm guessing that one was a positive too? Biggrin

I work in a store. I was talking to a vendor about how I felt pregnant, stopped what I was doing, went to the pharmacy, bought a test, went into the bathroom and peed on it, waited.... walked back to the vendor. I said ,"Yep. Thought so." It was very random..and thinking back on it, the vendor was not the first person I would have chosen to tell, but..they were waiting on me to get back. LOL

Oh gosh Jessica!! Can you imagine this tale from the *vendor's* pov??? Explaining to boss why s/he was late to their next store: "Well, I couldn't leave! I had to wait to see what the pee stick showed!" ( Honestly though, what a great story for the memory book! Smile TFS!

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!

Agreed!!!!!!!! These stories are awesome. I'm recommending that we find a way to create a POAS Hall of Fame!

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.

I found out I was pg with DS1 in a mall bathroom. I bought a cheap blue dye test at the mall while waiting for my bus and went to the bathroom because I just couldn't wait. After getting the bfp I went and bought some FRERs to take home lol.
