What used to be a closely-guarded secret until after the first trimester is now being shared online within minutes of seeing one line or two. The trend was first spotted by BabyCenter.com. And it’s not just a few women who feel the urge to pee on a stick for at-home fertility testing at the same moment, or at least on the same day, as their online friends.
The ‘Soooo... you want to have a pee party’ thread is just one of many threads. Each thread has dozens of responses from other women who wish to have a pee party.
There are sometimes spreadsheets involved, complete with rules of participation. The chart has 13 columns dedicated to factors such as ovulation dates, the expected date of a woman’s period and the results.
