The Rules...

(1) A lady may only POAS on a Friday.
(2) Friday means the day that everyone calls Friday in the time zone where you spent the night.
(3) Rule (1) does not apply to POA-OPK-S, UNLESS they are being illegitimately used as surrogate HCG detectors, in which case Rule (1) most definitely does apply
(4) Rule (1) does not apply following a BFP because if you want to waste £25 a day POADigiS that's your prerogative <<refuses to admit that's what I'll do>>
(5) Rule (1) does not apply if a lady is POAS in an attempt to get a BFN to prove she can start DTD with intent
(6) Rule (1) does not apply if a lady wants for unknown reason to pee on an actual stick, like a twig or some such, if that lady is unexpectedly caught short whilst tramping in the forest looking for bears.
(7) These rules (including Rule (1)) are subject to the change at any time if the ladies of the Posifrickentivity thread decide on a whim come up with empirical evidence to prove that it is luckier to POAS on any other day of the week
(8) Violators of Rule (1) shall be subject to fish throwing.

And as a grand finale, why not pledge to NEVER POAS before 14DPO?

sarnie I'd use the appt, I know it's too early to be very reassuring but I think I'd want to see everything looked as it should anyway!

Gosh this thread is flying - time for a new one very soon. Happy to sort it out so we can place mark - anyone got any title ideas? Definitely need to get TITH in there and maybe the semi automatic fish gun and, of course, chin up tits out!

MissHobart Tue 25-Feb-14 14:28:39

Parsley - I think you have the Fred right there! Semi-Auto Trout Gun and TITH! grin

OttersPocket Tue 25-Feb-14 14:45:27

Wowsers, this Fred has filled up quickly. We do a lot of talking rubbish sense grin Sounds like the title is just about sorted Parsley, shall we have an update of our stats too? Although I'm gutted that that's the two of us hitting the 2 year mark soon, fx that the next thread is ours smile

HollyBen Tue 25-Feb-14 15:39:57

sat at my desk reading an email from dds nursery about what they are up to next month wiyh tears in my eyes. No need to poas on friday for me I am so definitely up duffed hooray!!!wink

sebsmummy1 Tue 25-Feb-14 15:46:18

Ha ha holly. Love it grin

Well I have light brown discharge today. I have googled and it could be ovulation bleeding but I have never had this before! Has anyone else? Of course the alternative is that it's breakthrough bleeding or start if my period.

Fuck knows. I wish something would make sense to me.

CorporeSarnie Tue 25-Feb-14 16:44:43

sebs, I think somewhere in Toni Weschler it does say something about bleeding at the time of ov being a good fertile sign. Will take a look tonight for you. Fingers crossed it is ov bleeding vs. AF, seeing as you've TITH so much this month you deserve a medal (and a BFP, like all of us).

Metalhead Tue 25-Feb-14 17:20:08

Gosh, I spend one day in the office not being able to go on Mumsnet and the whole thread has filled up! (What's TITH by the way? I know what it means, but what do the actual letters stand for?)

Triplespin Tue 25-Feb-14 17:41:10

penguin I was prodding yesterday in a meeting at work! Not obvious poking but had my arms crossed around my chest and was discreeting trying to have a little feel! Hopefully noone noticed.

sarnie keep the appointment. How far along will you be by then? I think fedup who is now on the grads thread had a scan at 5+3, so it may not be too early. Though of course it is possible that they don't see anything just yet which could cause some unnecessary panic.

Thank you sundance I am going to try and hold out. Avoided testing today and will take it one day at a time. I do hope those lines are still there.
Sounds like you had good timing and you know it takes only one Tith to get upduffed. So hopefully you are sorted.

doctor how is your other half coping with the UTI.

otters I am the same. I go into a sulk if dh does not want Tith during fertile days. I always have to be super nice to him to make sure he complies.

Seems like we will have quite a few poasers this Friday. Good luck to everyone.

sebsmummy1 Tue 25-Feb-14 17:55:20

Thanks sarnie. I'm starting to think it's just my WTF cycle telling me to fuck the fuck off as would you believe I am still showing a faint positive even on a bloody Tesco test which aren't particularly sensitive. I don't think you can ovulate with a level above 25 miu or something and I'm sure tesco tests are 25 miu!!!

I give up.

picklebum2011 Tue 25-Feb-14 18:10:33

Hi everyone,great news triple I know what you mean about being anxious. I tested again this morning but still really faint, I thought it would have been brighter as thought I was due today. Been having lots of intense cramps so been convinced AF coming. I really don't know. One minute I'm like yay it happened the next I'm like why is it faint? So worried.

picklebum2011 Tue 25-Feb-14 18:13:34

Sebsmummy I know what you mean about things making sense!! I had spotting which was brownish when I had did for a day or too.
Wow so many posts today need to read through.

picklebum2011 Tue 25-Feb-14 18:14:49

Are tesco kits not as good then sebs? That is the one giving me the faint line, do you think it is wrong?

picklebum2011 Tue 25-Feb-14 18:17:25

Sorry that second to last post made no sense!!

Metalhead Tue 25-Feb-14 18:26:45

pickle I think hgc doubles every 48-72 hours in early pregnancy, so if you test two days in a row the lines will probably not be much different. I'd try again in 2-3 days if I were you.

Sorry about your WTF cycle sebs! I'm having similar issues; today has been the first day I haven't had any spotting (so far), just a tiny bit of light brown discharge, but instead I've been very achy in my pelvic region and lower back - almost like ov pains I used to get, so who knows what's going on there!

sebsmummy1 Tue 25-Feb-14 18:29:57

Pickle I have never had any problem with them giving me a false positive so don't worry. They are just not very sensitive so it can often take longer for the line to show.

Triplespin Tue 25-Feb-14 18:32:03

picklebum I think all tests are different and it depends on dye used. I understand that some tests never show a very strong line. When is AF due? Maybe you can try with a digi. It is expensive but at least no need to squint for the line. I will do the digi on Thursday myself. I have it saved from my previous miscarriage.

sebsmummy1 Tue 25-Feb-14 18:32:15

Metal head I had that too. I'm not sure what causes it but I definitely remember having twinges and almost light cramping as my bleeding lessened.

DoctorDonnaNoble Tue 25-Feb-14 19:05:44

DH is not coping well. He's on his second takeaway pizza of the week already!
IS there a new thread?

Parsley2506 Tue 25-Feb-14 19:52:58

Fill 'er up ladies, the new thread is here.

I am going to round up the stats in a bit and post them on the new thread. Dinner first!
