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?

Yo bitches!

(Y'all not bitches, I've just been watching orange is the new black!)

sizethree Tue 28-Jan-14 18:36:23

Hello you all, waves frantically! I'd like to join in... I need to write my stats the mumsnet way... Hang on, I got this!
sizethree - 34 - ttc #1 - 5 months to get bfp - 21 Sept 2013, mmc 11+5 weeks on 18 Nov 2013, 2 cycles since. No bfp yet. But fingers crossed for Feb.

Seasides Tue 28-Jan-14 18:38:16

Hoping that the thread-starter's luck means this is my month. Pretty sure I'll be on the 2ww by the time DH comes home on thurs, so far from my 8 times, all my hopes rest on today's session!

Seasides Tue 28-Jan-14 18:39:40

Hi size, sorry, cross posted. Hope this is your month too! Sorry for your loss, but you've found a good group.

sizethree Tue 28-Jan-14 18:46:25

seasides I am really loving the rules, brilliant humour! Feels like the brownies for grown ups.bthanks for giving me a giggle. Looking forward to more.

Triplespin Tue 28-Jan-14 18:48:21

Hello. I have had a bad start to the thread. AF has just made an appearance in the last hour. I was due today and thinking if AF doesn't arrive, I would poas tomorrow. Even bought new sticks today sad

Triplespin Tue 28-Jan-14 18:54:57

Welcome size! Sorry you find yourself here, but you are in good company.

Sal1977 Tue 28-Jan-14 18:55:01

Bumholes. For a minute I though I could save a few quid by just buying some basic frolic acid for 99p instead of expensive multi vit pills! Never mind, I also never pay attention to anything printed in the Daily Racist, it's all a load of bollocks.

Otter - yes of course tender baps could mean you're upduffed, but slapping your own tits up isn't going to make you pregnant. Leave them alone you filthy titter-upper!

Also booked a smear for next week which will be CD14. Am now fucking retardedly mental worried that a) DH and I will have DTD the day before and left over baby batter will dribble on the nurse or b) lube they use will kill off and ambush any new recruits.


Sal1977 Tue 28-Jan-14 18:56:23

Hello to Newbies!!

Triple gutted. Ah well, new thread new fertilised eggs eh? Chin up, tits out, get pissed.

Seasides Tue 28-Jan-14 19:00:04

Baby batter! Argh Sal, you've set the tone.

Would it be easy to change? If so, it might be worth the peace of mind, though I'm sure all would be well. I don't remember them using lube for a smear? Just - one of my other least favourite words - a speculum.

Thanks size, but I can't take credit I'm afraid-they've been the rules for more threads than I care to remember (because I've been here since the dawn of time)!

Seasides Tue 28-Jan-14 19:00:52

And sorry for af triple, thats shite sad.

Sal1977 Tue 28-Jan-14 19:02:56

You're in good, no, GREAT company Seaside. When did you arrive? I think I joined in April 2013.

However shit it is, it is a pretty frickin' hilarious waiting room at times! grin

Luckystar1 Tue 28-Jan-14 19:04:04

Me too please. My stats - ttc#1 bfp July 13 saw heartbeat in early scan but mmc at 10 weeks. Nada since.

I'm on every tablet currently marketed, have a cbfm and have weekly acupuncture. Have taken myself to a gyny to get progesterone tests. I'll be bankrupt by the time I get another bfp!!

Not feeling good about this cycle. We're having some male performance issues...

Good luck everyone!

Ps. I'm prone to dipping in and out as it gets slightly overwhelming for me at times.

Parsley2506 Tue 28-Jan-14 19:04:04

triple that fucking bitch! As Sal says, C.U.T.O, and you get a week of contraband out of it too (I know, it's no comfort really!).

I'm here, my shy cervix may still be hiding on the last thread tho. Will need to update the stats at some point for all the big fat positives from last week.

size welcome on board! I think I've seen you about on the MC threads. Sorry you're here but I think you'll find this a (mostly!) positive place to be (despairing rants are totally allowed tho).

Parsley2506 Tue 28-Jan-14 19:07:14

Ps yes there was lube galore at my smear. And I'd probably rebook too sal if it was going to get in the way of dtd without worrying about 'dribbling'! grin

fedupofrainydays Tue 28-Jan-14 19:10:15

Confused as to which thread I should be on... This one? Will I be a loner if I go on the old one?! So much has happened in a day when I've actually done some work smile

DoctorDonnaNoble Tue 28-Jan-14 19:14:35

Popping in. TTC #1 MC December 2013 BFP October cycle 4. Had the op on 13th December. Baby stopped growing almost as it finished implantation but sac continued. Started again as soon as but AF came 17th January. Still having some dark days.

wingandtalon Tue 28-Jan-14 19:16:34

Marking my place, and here are my stats

wingandtalon 34 ttc #1 10 months BFP 16th June 2013 1st cycle MMC August 2013

Welcome newbies, this lot will make you laugh and cry and learn things that you never wanted to know! In other words, they're a great bunch

triple so sorry to hear that the witch got you.

EnglishGirlAbroad Tue 28-Jan-14 19:21:51

Marking in my place!!
Welcome lucky and size, I'm a relative newbie too, but the ladies here have all been super nice! And hilarious!!

I'd be tempted to take the super lube and get the nurse to use that instead of the sperm killing stuff!

EnglishGirlAbroad Tue 28-Jan-14 19:23:32

Oh and triple I'm sorry af got you so late in the day! What a bitch!! angry

Parsley2506 Tue 28-Jan-14 19:30:43

English*, hahaha! Could even give her a syringe to pop it up there grin
