So as I'm trying to cram my carry-on into the stall in the airport bathroom so I can pee on an OPK, it got me thinking about an interesting topic...what is the craziest place you have ever POAS? What lengths have you gone to to ensure that you can get the job done? What other weird things has POAS made you do?

I always carry a gallon Ziploc with me so if I'm at someone's house or something I can put the HPT/OPK/preseed applicator/whatever back into my purse so no one else sees it.

So, let's hear your stories!!

Good thread!

Hmmm...I'm not that interesting at all....I've taken hpt's at my parents' house, my sister's house, up at camp and in the girl's room at a high school (when I was interning there-I was too afraid to use the faculty room ) Oh wait-one little scare in college had me poas'ing in the bathroom at the student union....

For OPK's...all of the above (except the student union) with the addition of at work....which isn't so bad because I have a bathroom in my office.

Let it be known though, under the correct circumstances, I would pretty much poas anywhere to assure that I'm o'ing or to see if I were preggers

I had to use my CBEFM at the airport once. It was pretty annoying trying to pee while holding onto a stick with one hand and the monitor with the other (I'm a germ-a-phobe so I didn't want to put it on the ground).

I've not taken a test anywhere exciting...

But when I had my false +++ last month, I had the test in my PURSE and I took it out to show my DAD when we were at dinner at his house.

YIKES! I was so happy and walking on air, thinking I was pregnant---I must not have been thinking clearly! The shocked look on his face was priceless!

Kind of an embarrassing moment on my part!
