    who else is with me... I am a serial POAS addict... it helps "scratch an itch" so to speak. Helps me cope with waiting for AF to arrive. Feel calm once I've tested, odd I know.

    But after over a year of TTC no. 2..... I find even when I know it is extremely unlikely we timed things right - like this cycle (as we were both unwell and then out on the town and both drank too much so didn't DTD when we planned to!)....... it doesn't stop me testing...

    It's 8 dpo today and I started testing at 6 dpo... why I don't know... sometimes twice a day! I know they are going to BFN as too early AND of course almost certainly a BFN as we didn't time it at all well....

    So.. tell me... why do we do it ??? I am so logical/practical in every other aspect of my life.. but when it comes to TTC I am off the scale lol...

    I'm totally with you on this. Haven't even finished AF yet and I'm already itching to POAS to see if I'm ovulating!! It does send you crazy. I guess it's one of the most important decisions we will make in our lives x

    I'm the same! Bought cheap internet tests to stop my addiction bankrupting me!

    I'm trying to hold out for longer this month....it's unlikely to last long!
