Brenda, I'm reading and cheering you on, too. :)

Someone here mentioned Damn You, Autocorrect. I checked it out and it is as funny as Hyperbole and a Half (which I highly recommend as well!)

Aww you guys are truly the best :wub:

Heather I have no hpt's in the house so I just need to avoid pharmacies and shops for the next week and a half :lol:

Stephanie I love the DIY blog, busy checking out the other links!

Leighann Damn you auto correct is an old favourite, It's made me laugh in some seriously down times, just love it!

Meaghan I read the first 2 entries and it seems so sweet (and funny) I loved my granny so looking forward to reading the rest!

Rachel I'm also an old fan of hyperbole and a half, I've read every single post. Just love it! It's just sad that she doesn't update that regularly. There's a South African blogger that I've recently stumbled upon that also does the self drawing thing (but not in paint, she's a graphic designer) and some of it is about SA but most isn't. I'm enjoying it, think she might also reach great status soon: private joke

Thank you, your concern and truly caring msg's mean the world to me! I'll try and honour it by not poas! :p

If you have to pee, at least wait until 11dpt so it can have a chance of being accurate :) When I was waiting for my results, I played a lot of mindless games on the internet. It's amazing how much time you can waste playing games!

I researched all baby products and created my wish list during my 2ww. I figured, if it was positive, I had a head start. If negative, then dammit I had a great 2 weeks reveling in babyhood! Worked for me!

OMG! I know the links were for Brenda, but I've wasted an amazing amount of time on Hyperbole and a half today! She is freakin hysterical (I am relate to her a little too much :blush: ).

Thanks for all the suggestions ladies. I've been busy all day doing basically um mindless cr@p :lol: But it's been fun. 1 more day down, 8 more to go... and I haven't bought an hpt! Avoiding shops like the plague.

Leighann the first time I came across her blog I read every single entry. She's brilliant.

Did any of you like the private joke blog? Curious what non-South Africans will think of it (yet again it's not all SA related but some of it is) Oh and there's foul language so if that isn't your thing, don't read ;)

It's very funny! I love the illustrations. And I'm so jealous of people like her and Hyperbole and a Half who can find funny social commentary in every day life. I wish I was so witty.

I am no help because when we did our IUI and I had to trigger, I POAS every day until I could verify it was out of my system...I bought a bunch of cheap dip tests then once I had NO lines I waited 3 days and started peeing again - and lo and behold I had lines again!!!

so I will cheer you on to not POAS but understand if you cave to temptation LOL!!!

Me too Stephanie, I don't know how they do it!

I am no help because when we did our IUI and I had to trigger, I POAS every day until I could verify it was out of my system...I bought a bunch of cheap dip tests then once I had NO lines I waited 3 days and started peeing again - and lo and behold I had lines again!!!

so I will cheer you on to not POAS but understand if you cave to temptation LOL!!!


lol yeah that sounds about like me with all my IUI and timed cycles (except for getting 2 lines again), I stopped doing it to myself with the first IVF but I'm seriously tempted again... So far I've managed to stay away from the shops though.

Having a hard day today. So irritated with myself. I have that heavy, yucky feeling you get before AF arrives so I've convinced myself it's over. Some days I'm really so sick of this sh!t. Sorry for the negativity ladies. I'm working on it...
