I just felt like I had to share this comment made by my wonderful husband. To those of us ladies who are trying our damndest to avoid getting pregnant: My husband and I are in no way shape or form ready for children yet. I had a scare several months ago, and was just reminded of a silly exchange during that time.
Darling Husband: “So, when you’re late, obviously you test.”
Me: “Yesss…… what else would I do?”
Darling Husband: “Well, that’s not the point. I wanted to ask you something about the process.”
Me: “Sure. Ask away.”
Darling Husband: “What’s it like to POAS? Is it fun?”
Me: “Are you serious?”
Darling Husband: “Yeah. Do you think it’s fun to do?”
Me: “Not AT ALL! Especially when I am sitting there like a ball of nerves, wondering whether it’s positive or not. You don’t understand how nerve-wracking that is. Fun? No way!”
Darling Husband: “Oh. I didn’t think about that part. Let me ask you this: how do you POAS, and not splash pee all over yourself? Wouldn’t it fly back up and hit you?”
Me: “Are you kidding?”
Darling Husband: “No. I need to know the answer to this question.”
Me: “No, you hold the stick down into the stream.”
Darling Husband: “OH! That totally makes sense!”
Sheesh! He’s funny, isn’t he? Just thought you might appreciate his adorable naievety.

Lol! I forget how much boys like to pee on things. Puts POAS in a different light.

@KoiKove: That’s true. I never thought of that aspect of it.

OMG that’s hilarious! We are TTC and I’m doing OPKs. DH walked in on me peeing in a dixie cup so I could test. Several of the things that he said in 2 minutes timeframe:
– “Wow isn’t your pee really dark?”
– “Why don’t you POAS instead of in a cup? Are you afraid of getting yourself wet?”
– “Those Dixie cups are really old. They might leak some sort of chemical and affect your results.”
Seriously??? This is why I like my privacy when I’m in the bathroom!
@KoiKove: You are so right. Every single month, Darling Husband asks if he can try one of the OPKs to see what his results will be. REALLY??? Not really seeing how that helps…

@KoiKove: lol. If only Darling Husband could take the test–he probably would have enjoyed it.

Wait… am I the only one who always does end up splashing pee all over my hands? No matter how I try to angle the stick I always end up with some splash but now I think I’m doing it wrong?
I’ve only done it a couple of times, but since you are supposed to wait until you really have to go (like FMU)…. Oh, and we don’t have any Dixie cups at home so I’ve always just done it right on it.

Oh, when I got my BFP, it was with these internet cheapie preg tests that I was just trying for fun (though I had had a period). When I got the second line, Darling Husband tested himself just to make sure they weren’t defective. Totally his idea. I think he had fun. Seriously.

From a child’s POV….
When my eldest was younger he asked how women knew they were pregnant. I told him they usually take a test and pee on a stick. A few hours later he comes up to me with a stick from outside and asks me to pee on it to see if I was pregnant or not. I laughed so hard I had tears. He desperately wanted a sibling and was hoping it might say yes….lol.
