unknown because I can't bring myself to POAS!

A BFN would be disappointing enough without the loudmouth sticks telling me about it several days in advance. A positive pee stick (while better than the alternative) hasn't always exactly been my best friend either, so I just don't want to indulge at all.

Sort of have a watery mouth today, that's about it

Good luck to the other ladies-in-waiting

I hated those evil things. The way they taunted and teased me from the bathroom floor, flashing "NOT PREGNANT" from the cold, hard tile floor. I personally found it much kinder and gentler to get a stash of chocolate and cherry coke (my drugs of choice), but it by my bed and wait for the phone call. I always knew if I heard my nurses voice, it was good news, but my RE always made the bad news calls. But that way, I was right there, prepared to sob into my pillow and drown my sorrows in massive doses of sugar. This strategy only works if you work from home though. I just love my nurses and RE, and I found it preferrable to get the news with the compassion they always showed me, vs. those evil sticks. And, on the rare positives, I loved being to celebrate with them as well. It was such a group effort, after all.

Regardless of how you get the news, I hope it is positively happy news! GL

When i was in the 2ww I was terrified to pee on anything. I just couldn't bring myself to do it. I also didn't have very many symptoms and when I was on the way to the dr.'s office I was giving myself a pep talk e.g. "it's going to be negative, but that's ok. we still have 3 frozen embryos, we can do a FET etc" It turned out that I was pg with triplets.

The 2ww just messes with our minds. Hang in there!

!!!!

Yes I am symptom-less, except for things that can be chalked up to progesterone.

I guess I would rather wait for a bad beta and get it over with in one disappointment than pee on those mean white sticks.
