    Default Why do we POAS when we know we are not pregnant or it is too early to tell?

    Seriously, I went from not really trying to having to test in a couple of weeks.

    I just did a test then at its nearly 3 pm, at most I would be 10dpo, earliest 5dpo. WHY?????

    Such a waste of money, so easy to get addicted but why do we do it when we know we are not going to get a positive result?

    Do we really think that we will just be lucky? I am not even 100% that I want to get pregnant this month so why am I so nuts about it? Crazy crazy

    Maybe I want it more than I think, the hormonal part is taking over the sensible we should wait a few months part of me!

    Am part smacking myself and laughing at myself for being such a silly nono.

    I know what you mean! I was like that with my second pregnancy. I wasted so many tests - but I had to test just in case

    Coz it allows me to dream until AF arrives

    ah see thats the thing for me, whilst I really think if I don't fall until March or later in the year it is better than falling now (timewise) I still get a bit bummed with the BFNs EVEN when I know it is either too early or I am not pregnant. Strange brains!

    Lol its because you want a baby. No amount of logic talk will change what your heart wants! I recommend not testing and just go with the flow! (much easier said than done I know) If you cant follow that, then at least make yourself wait until the day AF is due/or she is late!

    Because we hope we're wrong. No symptoms? We've all heard about women who didn't fund out straight away because they didn't have any? Too early to test? Maybe not, it might still show up positive.

    We know we're not pregnant but we hope that stick will prove us wrong.

    what about testing after you get af? I've done that a couple of times because the af before last was lighter and shorter than usual and we've all heard of people bleeding during pregnancy right?

    I have one frer left and I'm not touching it until the 25th (af due 24th) at the earliest!

    And I'm already planning a holiday around when I O in January, assuming I won't get UTD in December!

    Its just too stressful thinking that I *might* be pregnant all the time...so I'm going to start assuming that I'm not!
