LOL when I first saw the thread title I thought “Yay!!” right away because I thought you were joining us all early or something haha.

I use the wondfos and I have been using them since last August. It’s best to test between 2-8pm with about a 4 hour urine hold. I basically stop drinking anything after lunch and hold it to take the test right when I get home from work at 5 or 6. I’ve heard people say that they get positives only with FMU though so when I get close to O I take them twice a day, morning and evening/afternoon. The test line has to be darker than the control to be positive…here’s an example!

You WILL become addicted to peeing on little sticks.

@ieatunicorns:  I totally second that. Last Friday I pee’d on 4. FOUR. Not to mention that it was day 13 when I don’t ever O before day 20…sigh. It gets ridiculous!

@MrsCarnival:  Just a few more months 🙂 It is seriously SO hard to hold it for that long, especially if you drink a lot of water. I drink a lot of water (so much that I alternate between 2 bathrooms in our office so that people don’t think I have a bladder problem!!) and it took a long time for me to get used to it. I usually start taking them once a day (afternoon) right after AF ends. Then I usually (not this month obviously because I was overly anxious) start doing them twice a day about 3 days before projected O.

@MrsCarnival:  Those are for the people who use fertility monitors instead of OPKs. You stick the pee stick into a machine and it tells you what level fertility you are right then…low, high or peak (O). I leave them blank 🙂

@MrsCarnival:  TBH I hadn’t ever noticed the low, high, peak thing before you asked about it lol. Apparently I am not very observant!

@Running Elley:  I lol’ at your post about using two different bathrooms bc you pee so much… I do the same thing at work! The receptionist at my office asked me if I have ever asked a doctor about why I have to go so much…. ummmm, no I drink like 15 glasses of water during the day- where else would it go??:)

@MrsCarnival:  not peeing from lunch-time on is honestly BRUTAL for me, but I’ve found that if I try to stop drinking around noon and keep myself REALLY busy between 4 and 5p (when I leave) I can make it home and test right away.

@MRSLMA:  I feel a *little* less crazy now haha. I had to get a drug test before I started my job and the little old lady at the processing center literally stood right outside the door while I went to the bathroom and when I went out she said “Drink a lot of fluids, do we?” Ummmm….that was awkward!

@MrsCarnival:  You’ll be a pro in no time!! I’ve gotten to the point where I can use the little plastic wrapper that the OPK comes in as a pee cup! Haha…it’s a sickness.

So if my cycles are 28-29 days long – when do you think I should start POAS? I was thinking about day 8…since I am not really for sure when I will(or if) O? Any ideas?
