Just keep telling yourself only FMU is good, so you only have to get throught the first pee of the day. GOOD LUCK!!!

@Peffy:  What can you do to keep your self occuppied? something that makes you happy and relieves stress…….

You got any hobbies or activities that you can do? Any to-do list’s that needs finishing? I am not TTC yet but I am desperatly waiting! So excited to start but frightened that it will consume me and I will be  totally obsessed (which I already am! lol)

I can so relate. I’m only 4 DPO, and slowly dying (ok, maybe that was a little dramatic). Anyhow, AF should be due in a couple of days for you- how do you feel? Does it feel like AF is coming?

The best way to pass time for me is to turn on trash TV and laugh at it :p Think, Breaking Amish, The Bachelorette, etc! Although I watch these regardles….

My FI and I just started to kind of NTNP and I have absolutely no idea when I O’d, but my guess is I am anywhere between 5 and 11DPO >.< I’m holding out until this Monday when AF is technically due… (been having really weird cycles lately probably due to travel, but was always regular 29 days before).

I’m right there with you. I’m exactly 8 DPO and absolutely has to POAS last night. We’re supposed to wait a year befre TTC but things got a little frisky right before phase 2 started and during phase 2. The HPT came back with a BFN. Even though we’re not TTC, I was a bit disappointed.

I can’t get it the need to POAS out of my mind and it’s driving me crazy. Doesn’t help that I’ll be going to the third baby shower this month and am crocheting baby blankets like crazy 🙁

Hang in there. I’m saving my sticks for 11 DPO and 3 days late!

I’m right there with you- I’m only 4 DPO- so no need to POAS… but my mind is constantly on when I can test…. looking at my chart.  I NEED ANOTHER HOBBY! 

Seriously!  We are TTC our first baby and DH is gone at work a lot…. leaving me at home with my lazy dog.  I’m trying to read and work on things I don’t have time to do when school is in sessions — enjoy my time away from work!!!… but I find myself wishing it were next week already…. and obsessing. 

I know it’s not helpful… but IDK what else to do.  My main “hobby” is shopping- but I don’t want to spend lots of money.  I need something else to work on.  Last summer it was all wedding stuff- now I kind of feel bored.

Here is motivation for you….I didn’t resist and today my BFN brought my depression out and then my cycle came this evening…every time I’ve POAS my cycle comes…so sick of it! Hang in there…just a couple more days….don’t POAS!!!!  Tears have come and gone all day.  so frustrated and sad. 🙁

@Peffy:  I am with you!! I promised myself I wouldn’t POAS tonight after I got a BFN this morning but what did I do the second I came home? YUP…POAS! and what was the result? BFN! UGH! This other super annoying this is that I have no idea when AF is supposed to come. This is my first month off of BCP – my last period was on 5-11 and I am on CD 34. It is worse not knowing if I am techinically late or if I o’d or what. So I am not the right person to convince you otherwise because I am obsessing about it.
