True Confession!!!

Like I said, I love these true confessions threads, but I ran out of questions, so instead I am asking you all to just post some of your own true confessions about being a TTC/POAS addict for our enjoyment. Biggrin

Here is one of mine:

I haven't gotten AF back yet since I had Reid (still BF'ing), with everything we've had going on we've only DTD a handful of times in the past couple of months, and everytime we have we have used protection....and I've still POAS TWICE so far "just to be sure..." ROFL Old habits die hard, I'm afraid!

Your turn, POAS addicts!

Sounds like me! DH had a vasectomy and I STILL always tested! Old habits die hard, eh? LOL

Joee! You're back! Make me an omelette? *hopeful*

Too funny about you guys testing even with a vasectomy or tubes tied. I think that would be me too....

Hilarious. I did this too, for 4 years! Just hoping. My hormones were also all over the place and I would swear I was preggers but never was.

I don't care WHAT they say... Tubal messes with your 'mones, man. And MANY congrats on a successful un-tie! What a blessing for you!

I'm in a different boat than most of you, but I always get that urge to test around 10dpo every cycle. And sometimes again a few days later just in case. But, we (when I'm not hugely pregnant) use FAM and condoms or spermicide as BC, so my odds are a bit higher. Wink

Well you know I tested every day for the first 9 weeks of my pregnancy. But when I'm not TTC I actually don't think about poas. We just use the withdrawal method...worked for 6ish years.

haha reading these post makes me laugh....b/c I do the same thing!! Even after being told they found 0 sperm in DH's SA - I still tested every month!! B/c at the time, we didn't know what was causing it, so we tried multiple things, taking certain supplements, not taking certain meds, eating certain foods....I felt like there was a slight chance it could happen!
My AF's were always all over the place too - so if I was a few days "late" I immediately POAS - what would you know - AF would arrive few days later. Sad But after doing this for almost 2 years, I eventually stopped. But now that we're actively TTC (IUI with DS), I start POAS about 9-10 DPIUI. Save me!! Smile

I have the copper IUD, my cycle has yet to regulate with it and I STILL test! I have tested at least 6 times in the past year and a half because I keep getting pregnancy symptoms around Witch time. I don't care what people tell me that the copper IUD shouldn't mess with your hormones but I am 110% sure it has mine. Beee
