POAS much?

i am perhaps certifiable.  i POAS this morning…why?  because my wrists have been hurting in the mornings over the past week.  they only other time they have ever bothered me was during my pregnancy.  i thought, "if my wrists hurt, maybe i'm knocked up! yea! how miraculous!" 

my period hasn't even started up again and here i am peeing on sticks.   i suppose it's a sickness one never really shakes.  what is perhaps more appalling is the MASS of sticks i have to pee on — both HCG and OPKs.  it's ridiculous.

funny! when we went back for IVF round 2 the RE asked how long we’ve been trying this time around. i laughed. not at all! i want nothing to do with the “old fashioned” method, never even considered it happening. but you always hear about it, i hope you’re one of the lucky ones!!

I had the same thinking not long ago. No period, yet terrible gas – the kind that lasted for 2 weeks – just like when I first got pregnant a year and 9 months ago. Could it be? nope….

It’s a good thing I don’t have any. I had a 32 day cycle last month (that’s really long for me) so I was tempted to buy some.

Heh. Old habits die hard. I have to get rid of some here, I think…

I’ve just bought 40 more OPKs off the internet. Oy.

We used no BC until I started taking my Fibro meds again a few months after J was born- and I cop to peeing on one or two in that meantime…

It’s so addictive huh?
No period here either, nine months in.

Don’t be surprised if I have a similar post in the coming months!

I’ve resisted so far. But the urge? Rising. I may have to borrow some tongue depressors from work and pee on them to save money. I can draw in the oneline ahead of time.
