Gave in and POAS.... — The Bump
Pregnant after IF

Gave in and POAS....

Even though I just posted a response to a 2ww post about POAS before my beta that I wasn't going to give in and do it.  I couldn't take the stress any longer and bought a 3 pack of FRER and I definitely got 2 pink lines (10dp3dt)!  I want to do something really special to show the test to DH, but I'm scared that when I go in Friday for my beta that the numbers will be low and I will get him excited and have to take the excitement all away from him.  I feel like I have to tell him that I got the BFP on the test today because we have never seen 2 lines!  When did you tell DH/SO? Should I make a big deal about it?  Ever since we have started this IF journey it has been my dream to make the announcement to DH really special because he wants a family almost more than I do.

Re: Gave in and POAS....

  • Tell him, if the worst happened you would still tell him that it was a CP, so let him enjoy the excitement of those two beautiful lines before all the science comes back into play.

    I taped my first + test to an "on the way" type picture frame and put it on the counter where he would see it when he arrived home from work.  That ended in a CP, but I'm still glad we got to enjoy that moment together.

    GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ETA:  OMG, I almost forgot to tell you Congratulations!!!!!!!

  • In my case i POAS at 4dp5dt and saw a very very faint line. I immediately showed it to DH and we both tried to interpret it. DH wanted me to POAS again that afternoon, and again the next day and the next day. So basically we went through the whole uncertainty before beta together.

  • Thank you all.  I decided to get him a card and in it I wrote a little note that we can enjoy this moment until proven otherwise and no matter what this gives us a HUGE amount of hope that we never had before!

  • That is so terrific!  Congratulations!  I had to wait to tell my H until the next day (I didn't POAS to find out -- it was a surprise call from the RE)... We had company over and I wanted to tell him and only him until we at least had confirmation that the beta #s were doubling.  I WISH I could have told him the same day -- I didn't sleep all that night!
