The question rose it’s ugly head.
Do I or don’t I pee on a stick? Now if you know me at all you know that I’m really anti POAS. They mess with your head in ways that you can never imagine. Or if you’ve ever fished a still wet pee stick out the bin or pulled the thing apart in an effort to see the second bloody line, it messes with your head in ways you can well imagine.
On the flip side I suppose if I was ever blessed enough to pee on the variety which automatically comes up singing with a bling, bling second line before the pee gets all the way across the test window (need to figure out where on earth to buy this kind, they do sound kind of nice), I would be the type of person who DOES advocate a good old POAS.
So, the conundrum lurks in the back of my mind.
Do I or don’t I? The thing is this, my history has always been to start bleeding early after a treatment. Whilst my body will not conform to a “normal” 28 day cycle on it’s own, it does a damn good job of conforming to the norm when I’ve had a stimmed cycle. Previously I’ve always bled on or before CD28.
For us, while we are still believing in this IVF, and we still think that this could very well be THE ONE that yields that elusive BFP, our main focus right now is to get past the point of previous bleeds. That day my friends is next week Wednesday.
At that point we migth start playing POAS ball. Cos next week Wednesday is ONLY two days before my scheduled beta. And honestly I really don’t see the point in peeing on a stick a mere two days before a blood test. I *might* (and this is an extremely tentative might) POAS on the morning of the beta, just to prepare myself (and Cliff) for what the outcome might be.
And that dear hearts is the long and short of it.
