I am in my TWW and tomorrow is my POAS date (13dpo). I know FMU is supposed to be best but I don’t want to test first thing in the morning because my Darling Husband and I both have really long work days tomorrow (beginning with really early mornings) and, in the chance that I get a BFP (fingers crossed!), I don’t want to POAS, tell Darling Husband, and then run out the door. I want to have time to take it all in together! So, do you think it would be just as good to do a 4 hour hold and test after work?? Or should I suck it up and use FMU??
Thanks for the advice!

If you hold it for 4 hours, don’t drink anything either is your urine will be more concentrated.. The reaosn FMU is best is because you typically aren’t drinking during the night (which would dulute the hormones in more urine). If you can go that long without peeing or dirnking you should be fine. Good luck!

To be honest with you, everytime I’ve gotten a positive, it didn’t really matter if it was FMU or at any point during the day. At 13 dpo you should be safe to test later in the day. I would avoid drinking a lot of water so it’s not too diluted but you don’t have to kill yourself waiting 4 hours. If you really have to go, then go and test.

Thanks so much ladies, that makes me feel better! I think I will do a 4HH tomorrow and test after work. That way, I can have some time to process the results whether they are positive or negative!

@jny1179: Thanks for this answer! I was debating the same thing myself and this helped me decide!
