IADBU... why can't I just pee on a stick?!

My periods are fairly irregular. Usually they come between 28 and 35 days apart, occasionally a bit longer.

We're not TTC but also not terribly strict about contraception as we'd be more than capable of raising a child and it's definitely on the cards in the near future.

I'm now on day 39 of my cycle. Whilst this wouldn't be the longest cycle I've ever had, usually I would have done a pregnancy test by now but for some reason I just can't bring myself to do one! I don't know if it's just because we've got a lot going on and now wouldn't be the ideal time or if it's because I subconsciously know and I'm terrified!

Either way, we'd be perfectly happy, I'm just being ridiculous!

Big girl pants. Good luck op flowers

I think it's probably because you would be disappointed if it was negative. I know exactly how you are feeling. Do you think you and your partner should talk about starting to try officially? It sounds as though you are ready flowers

Do it already grin

Seriously, knowledge is power and once you know (either way) you can begin to process -- and plan is need be--

Go and POAS woman.

G'wan.

It’s daunting huh? Just do it. And come back with the results.

Waddlelikeapenguin Fri 06-Oct-17 18:09:54

POAS grin

You can do it!

ethelfleda Fri 06-Oct-17 18:35:38

We were actively trying and I was terrified to POAS! (35 weeks pg now!)
Just DO IT
And come and tell us the result please!

ethelfleda Fri 06-Oct-17 18:36:23

Look at it this way - whether you do or not it won't change whether you are or aren't smile

AGnu Fri 06-Oct-17 18:38:25

Maybe pull your big girl pants down while you do the actual POAS bit... grin

Oooo I was like this when I fell pregnant with dd.

We'd be ttc for years and I'd jumped the gun so many times it was ridiculous (damn you early pregnancy and pmt for having so many similar symptoms). We'd not long moved across country and chilled out a bit just enjoying ourselves and bam BFP. DP was so used to the drill he'd bought a pack of fags and a bottle of wine for the inevitable tears the same time I bought my pregnancy test grin

Truly there's no rush. If you are and you know you'd be happy(ish) but daunted then it doesn't really matter whether it's now or next week - outcomes the same.

Cornettoninja Fri 06-Oct-17 18:40:27

Forgot to say I waited two weeks after my missed period - unheard of for me!

Bitchfromhell Fri 06-Oct-17 18:40:57

When I was ttc I always poas on Friday night if I was unsure as a bfn would mean I could open the god stuff for the weekend smile is that enough encouragement for you? If you're not you can have Friday wines grin
Good luck though, I think it might just mean more to you than you're trying to let on wink

Bitchfromhell Fri 06-Oct-17 18:41:58

*or just the good stuff if you're not into the god stuff typo fail

tocas Fri 06-Oct-17 18:42:21

Do itttttt... Then tell us grin flowers

Place marking for the piss.

Didntcomeheretofuckspiders Fri 06-Oct-17 20:37:04

I'm st work, but I promise I will in the morning!

HelenaJustina Fri 06-Oct-17 20:39:00

Agree with the pp who said that it’s because you might be disappointed at the outcome. Maybe it’s time to have a chat with your other half about moving babies up the schedule?

EvilDoctorBallerinaVampireDuck Fri 06-Oct-17 20:41:14

Yy - go and POAS! 😂

ItsNachoCheese Fri 06-Oct-17 20:43:54

Poas already woman! grin
