OPT/OPK= gateway to POAS addiction!

Ever since I started using the OPT's this cycle I have this overwhelming urge to POAS every morning now Blum 3

I POAS'd on a HPT at 4dpo and now again this morning at 7dpo. I *think* I may have seen a suuuuuuper faint line this morning but bit could just be wishfil thinking. I took pictures and will play around with the contrast etc then post on the DYSAL board.

I never thought I would be one of "those" people Smile

Haha I totally get that! I keep telling myself to be strong and wait and see if AF turns up on my bday before I test again... The tests are just so expensive. If I don't get a BFP this month I won't chart again but I will buy a lot of PT's

Yeah.... I didn't realize how expensive! But I needed to know as my cycle is all messed upp and I wasn't charting. I don't know if I can chart my temp because i don't want DH to know how closely I'm monitoring it because then he will feel like I'm taking the fun out of it.

Thanks! I won't trust it until its been confirmed with a FRER as well as making it passed 4/19 (which is when AF is supposed to arrive.)

But here's holding thumbs!

Ha. That's kinda silly. Yeah... my DH thinks I need to relax about it.. but it's hard. I just think that charting is good in general because it helps you understand your body and then when you want to avoid having a baby it comes in handy a bit too. I find it all very intriguing though. I started marking my period and cramps and such a while back ago even when I wasn't TTC just so that I knew what my cycle was like and what happened when and whatever. I'm glad I did it though because I just have learned so much more about what my body is like and stuff. Charting has been super interesting too. It just seems so crazy that the body responds to things pretty much the same throughout every woman. When I saw my temperature increase I was excited because it's cool....

Woah.. I'm nerdy.

ROFL I would probably get excited too.

I was also tracking all my symptoms before we were even TOC because it t helped me understand if my *****yness was PMS or BPD.
