    You know your obsessed with POAS when ...

    1. Your reading this thread!
    2. Yo'u purchase more than 1 box at a time
    3. Every wee is a wasted opportunity to test!
    4. You check the result at 1 min .. 5 mins .. 10 mins .. 11 mins .. 12 mins .. 2 hours .. 6 hours ..etc ..
    5. The first thing you think about when you wake up is .. time to test!



    Add some more!!

    When you have to actively refrain from testing after your HCG shot just so you can see what two lines actually looks like

    The entire bulk order from the net is all used before AF is due.

    'Hide' the used POAS from your dh, so he won't know you are a serial tester

    You're convinced that you are pg... it is just a dodgy batch of tests... so you go get more but different brands - and then each time it is neg you still think it is the dodgy batch of test

    Oh gosh, I think I've been guilty of all these things at least once PMSL!

    I have some more..........you use OPKs from 7DPO cos you're so desperate to see two lines (worked for me, twice!).

    You use OPKs even when you already know you're Oing, just so you can see two lines

    You're totally amazed that your DP/DH can't see those two lines given that they are TOTALLY obvious if you hold it at the right angle and squint - all provided it is the right light of course

    PMSL - yes the things we do when TTC!

    You buy a batch of 50 off the net and you still cut them in half to get more value for your dollar plus definately hide them from Husband so he knows your not a serial tester. Im definately one of those.

    That is a great idea!! This is my first month using OPKs and I have used 19 out of the 20 that I bought. I think I can safely say I am....OBSESSED WITH POAS!!! Although reading they can sometimes work as a HPT didn't help matters.
