Why did I decide to POAS yesterday afternoon? Yes, I told myself that it was to make sure the trigger was completely out of my system like the Jen’s (he he, just like the Bob’s…great movie) suggested. But really it is because I enjoy torture. I should consider becoming a spy when all this is said and done because no one will ever be able to get anything out of me. I torture myself all the time…for fun even!! Anywho, naturally Friday’s pee stick was white as a ghost. But you see, I rationalized it because I tested in the afternoon and drank a ton of water that day. So this morning, what did a half asleep Meghan have to do??? You guessed it! Pee on yet another stick. And ya know what….the trigger is still out of my system! Now this is where I get good at the self-torture. I’m now telling myself that because I got up to pee in the middle of the night (around 2) that the test I took at 7:30 must not be valid….so tomorrow morning I’ll be at it again! Today is 10dpiui. Yes, I know its still early but still within the realm of possibilities.

Enough of that depressing crap. Let me tell you about my otherwise fantastic Friday night. My MIL always just writes us a check for the holidays and ever year we do something practical with it. And this year we were planning on doing the same. She’s overly generous with her gifts so it would almost cover all of my meds for this next IUI (if necessary). Instead, the fantastic Mr H tells me that his mom wanted to make sure we did something fun so instead she got us tickets to go see Av.enue Q. I’m pretty gullible and easily get excited for a night out. We go out to a fantastic to a place with a great pre-theater menu (I was so pleasantly surprised by this restaurant) and then walk over to the show. The whole time Mr H is telling me that his mom did a bad job with the seats, they suck, on and on. We get there, he walks right past all the ushers and brings me to front row center…right behind the conductor. I was so surprised! He did it all (and I should have know that his mom is not computer savvy enough to buy tickets for anything online). He actually got lucky and when he was buying the tickets last week he told the guy he was trying to plan a nice date for his wife b/c she’d been down lately and the guy at the box office upgraded him! See, it can pay to be miserable and depressed 😉 It was a fantastic show. One where you definitely want to be up close to see all of their facial expressions. I need to download one of the first songs, It Sucks to be Me. I see it becoming a key staple in my pity party rotation.

Today started out fun. Met my almost sister in law in Clarendon for a meeting with the florist. I just love her (my almost sister, not the florist, who was nice) and can not wait for her to officially be my sister. I am so lucky my brother picked someone I actually like. After that I had to rush home to change. I had meetings with 2 families today. Sucked to work 5 hours on a Saturday but that money should totally cover Christmas shopping this year.

And tomorrow is the cookie exchange with the DC Stirrup Queens. And that means I must get myself in the kitchen!!

    Pee sticks are evil. But you’re well and truly early enough to still be in the game yet,xxJ

    Pee sticks are evil. As one who has never seen more than one line (Or a +, or a “pregnant” or a freaking happy face or whatever) I can fully attest to their evilness. Hey…you got to see Ave Q! I have been after The Man to treck up to the big city so we can go. I will have to redouble my efforts- sounds like it shouldn’t be missed.

    I’m with the others – they’re evil evil evil. Stupid addictive horrible things…

  4. Debby replied:

    those pee sticks are the devil!! they’ve called my name in the middle of the night, day, afternoon sooo many times. There must be some kind of pee sticks anonymous that we can attend to break the addiction. So if it makes you feel any better – i’m sure I’d be peeing on as many of them as you are in this situation.

  5. The Town Criers replied:

    Your husband is awesome! Pee sticks are pure evil. And they can be liars. That’s what I’m choosing to believe tonight.

  6. Fertilize Me replied:

    I call pee sticks – torture devices! I hate them. As for your husband, MAJOR points for the Man!!!! I am glad you had such a great time. Have fun at the cookie exchange i am very jealous and want to pack up and move right now

  7. Heather replied:

    to echo the masses – pee sticks are most definitely from the pit of hell. but nothing like a little musical theatre to lift the spirits! so glad you got to have a great date night with the hubby – what a sweet, thoughtful guy he is!

  8. Pamela Jeanne replied:

    What a cool night out with your guy. So well deserved after the torturous experiences leading up to it. Wishing more happiness in your future!

  9. Lea Bee replied:

    good luck with the devil sticks!

    The only kind of evil pee sticks that I ever like are OPKs. There the only ones that let me see 2 lines occasionally. And even OPKs are getting on my nerves right now!

  11. Adriane Yates-Cook replied:

    The story with pee sticks is too funny. My fingers are crossed for you! 10 dpiui is great!!!!

  12. Michell replied:

    Oh, yeah done the torture thing. This month I’m not wanting to pee on a stick at all. Heck, I don’t even want to on Wednesday when I’m supposed to.

  13. Maria replied:

    Ugh, been there done that. Many, many, many times. Yet it never seems to stop my addictive behavior, you would think I would learn by now. Nothing good ever comes from POAS.Your husband is an absolute gem!!10dpiui, you’re still in the game. Fingers crossed.

  14. In and Out of Luck replied:

    Bad, bad pee sticks. I’m sorry I didn’t get to go to the cookie exchange and meet you. Avenue Q is awesome.

  15. Yoka replied:

    I hope that the evil pee sticks are gonna show two lines soon. When is your blood test??? I hold my fingers crossed that you are still in the game.
