I promised myself I wouldn't be too hopeful about this cycle, but clearly it isn't working.

I'm 8DPO, and already I am dying to pee on something. I ordered some internet cheapie test strips (because next month I'll be testing the trigger out of my system) so I decided if I'm going to POAS at 8DPO, I'll use one of the cheap ones. I had never used these before.

SO, I pee in my Dixie cup, dip the strip, and stare at it intently for a few minutes. Nothing. I wait some more. Nothing. Walk closer to the window and stare some more. Nothing.

I run to the computer and pull up the site where I ordered the strips...click for testing instructions. O M G !!

I DIPPED THE WRONG END OF THE STRIP!!!

So now not only do I feel like a fool for testing so early, but it was totally wasted because I fouled up the test.

Don't feel too bad about poas'ing so soon. I think maybe we should embrace our addiction anyway

AWE!! That made me giggle and want to hug you! LOL! I don't think you are an idiot! You were probably all nervous and antsy anyway feeling like you were doing something "naughty" by POAS at 8 dpo.....that's the way I feel when I do it! LOL! I actually hide them from DH and DS so that they don't tease me! LOL! So, had you already tossed the pee??? Did you get a chance to dip the right end??

Thanks, girls...you made me feel better about my mishap today

I was definitely nervous, and DEFINITELY felt like I was being naughty for POAS so early. DH is still gone, so I don't have to be sneaky about it at all. I just wanted to get it over with...see the BFN...throw it away...and pretend it never happened. Of course I had already dumped my cup, so I just gave up for today.

I guess this is why the digis are SO worth it...you can't screw them up like this!
