So I POAS today! Now don't get to excited - it was only a OPK because that is all I have. I am getting myself warmed up because I need to see it for myself and not hear it from the RE if it's BFP or BFN. If it's a BFN I have to prepare so I don't kill RE when he calls with that news. jk

I had a little line on the OPK but it wasn't dark that is for sure. It was a good warm up though! You know like stretching before working out!

Gretchen...May be it's because I've only ever seen a BFN that I am also anti-POAS! I'm glad you're dipping your toes in the water! I'm so ready for your BFP!

I thought this would be in reference to the weather (Spring and all that!) LOL

But I'm pleasantly surprised!

I for one, can certainly attest that its quite nerve-wrecking to figure out squinter pee sticks, but I feel alot better knowing!

If you are going to test, I'd suggest 7dp5dt, or 12DPO.

Good luck Gretchen! I've everything crossed for you!

This is EXACTLY why I was so hesitant!

Gretchen, I wish dearly that I would have saved your mailing address from when I sent you those books. FedEx would be delivering you a box of FRERs every single day

I'm proud of you for dipping your toe in the water...err, your stick in the pee
