The age old question of the Infertile in a treatment cycle. Oh hell, let's be honest. There doesn't have to have been any actual treatment. Just the possibility of an egg and the hint of a sperm together in the same room at around the right cycle day, and it's time to break out the HPTs!
So for IVF, when every little thing is so documented and "known" and there is so much riding on the cycle, the temptation to POAS is nearly unbearable. For months now, I have been debating the idea of buying a stock of internet cheapie sticks and "testing out the trigger". Right up until beta day.
My Mom and my MIL will both be arriving for a visit just a few days before beta (give or take depending on retrieval date). I know, I know... what was I thinking approving that itinerary? It's going to be hard enough to keep those PIO shots under wraps, much less find a way to store and dispose of countless HPT strips.
I seriously want to do this. I want to know if there is even a glimmer of a pregnancy. I need to know.
Any suggestions for hiding the PIO ritual from the Moms in a house with only one bathroom?
UPDATED: The internet cheapie sticks have been ordered! Here's hoping they get here before transfer. More importantly, I wanted to say a huge thank you for all the thoughtful comments over the last week. You guys are the best!
