I just wanted to share a funny little story about my testing experience yesterday. I bought several dollar store tests. I have never used these before, so I didn't realize that you didn't actually pee directly on them like the ept's and generic one's lol

I wake up and of course have to pee soooo bad and since having my daughter I have some problems holding it LOL Anyways, I literally run to the bathroom and open up the little box, thinking, gee, this is different, it has this little bitty clear plastic thingy with the test (at the time I didn't realize it was a dropper that you could squeeze the end of).

I'm looking at this thing and decide to get out the directions. Keep in mind, I'm sitting on the toilet trying to hold it while I figure this darn thing out.

It says to pee in some kind of container, i was like CRAP! I don't have a container and no time to run to the kitchen, I see a water bottle on the counter and decide that would be too hard to pee in, then thought maybe i'll try to pee into the dropper and quickly decided that was a bad idea, THEN i see my daughters minnie potty chair. YES, I PEED IN THE MINNIE POTTY CHAIR!

So then I'm looking at this little plastic thing, trying to figure out how to get the pee in it to drop into the test LOL I drop the plastic thing into the potty chair and it's not filling up. I finish the directions haha figure out it's a dropper that you have to squeeze, so pee on my hands and in the dropper I FINALLY got the pee in the test.

ahhahahaha!!! Oh no!! That's so funny and so frustrating all at once!!

I remember being very surprised too. When I really had to pee. I ended up peeing in the little foil bag it came in and using the dropper from that lol

Crazy enough to try all over again for a second together baby! Hoping for a much less wild ride this time!

I never knew until that moment how badly it could hurt to lose something you never really had. - Missed Miscarriage at 10 weeks - 3/26/13

I laughed so hard. That would have been so frustrating, but in hindsight hilarious! This is the reason why I always have a cup near my toilet. Probably confuses people who use it.

Thank you *kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!

OMG! This just made me laugh so hard! I could see myself using a potty chair as well. I never thought of the foil. I have used my toothbrush cup before, and water cup I have in there. Now I just have plastic cups below my sink with the tests, after having near failed attempts in the past and peeing all over myself as well. Better luck next time!

It didn't come with a little cup to pee in?? Either way, thank you, I needed a pick me up today, LOL!

Oh wait, its the ovulation kit that I use that came with the peepee cup. I use this small glass cup that we have a few of. It's meant for condiments like ketchup or something, not so much meant for a pee cup but hey it works and it's easy to clean out BUT I keep it in the bathroom cuz I don't like the idea of dipping my fries in something I once held under myself to collect pee in
