… that is the question? A few of you have asked if I have or am going to be peeing on a stick. And the answer is I really don’t know. I must be honest and admit that I am not a fan of POAS, mostly due to the fact that I am WAY to used to getting one line only and also cos I have heard many a tale of ladies who have POAS to a heartbreaking one line even after their beta’s have been confirmed. Or those who have experienced a heart leaping two lines only to be told from their beta that it is either a chemical pregnancy or not viable.
Me? I think I might end up just protecting my heart from any of the above mentioned eventualities but on the other hand I really do want to be prepared for what is to come. I mean I am going to be at work again when the call comes through and the last thing I need is fall to pieces at work again if I am to be faced with a negative on this cycle. I see many advantages to POAS. But I also see many disadvantages to POAS.
I think it is also important to remember that my history does not really lend itself to any peeing on any form of sticks. With IVF # 1 I started bleeding on 9DP3DT (12DPO and my CD 29 of that cycle) and with my FET I started bleeding on 10DP5DT (15DPO and my CD 34 of that cycle). Hmmm. So *if* I wanted to POAS this time round I would need to mix it in there somewhere between CD 29 and CD 34. I’m supposed to test on 11DP5DT this time round. (CD go figure 34) *sigh* So *if* I am going to do this thing which “POAS pusher # 1” and “POAS pusher # 2” think I should it would have to be in the next few days. *knees shaking*
Gosh, overthinking this much Sam? Yes! And cos I am I need your opinions – what do you think I should do? POAS? Not POAS? And if in your opinion I should, when?
