Hoping this helps us conceive

I just ordered this off Amazon.
I came across it tonight and the reviews were so great that I decided to place an order. There are a lot of things that can affect fertility but I'm hoping this will be the answer since we already know there aren't any major issues in our way. I've tried the sticks that you use to test one week a month and I just can't seem to remember to test that week. I'm hoping that having this always in our bathroom will take away the element that always makes me screw up the tests.
Also on a related note I found out today that one of my best friends and her husband are expecting. They were so excited to be able to call friends on their 1st wedding anniversary and tell everyone the exciting news. I am having a hard time adjusting because since we became friends 4 years ago my mindset has always been having kids while hers has ranged from an early relationship, being engaged, married and now expecting.

Hey! You can get the SAME results with the cheapie strips! WE were trying to get pregnant for over 2 years!! TWO YEARS! I had surgery in November got pregnant right after in Jan. lost the little one and ended up pregnant again on Valentine's day! What a gift! I wasted A LOT of money on CB tests. You can go to or ebay and get the LH strips 100 or more for about 20 bucks. I'd use about 5 a day! I WAS OBSESSED! I also used a basil theomometer, checked cervical mucus (TMI sorry) , kept a calender on my phone and for days we had sex- fertility- and so on... I was also addicted to a website They have a TTC section. I have heard all the myths, rumors, and so on about trying to get pregnant.... Best of luck to you two! :)

I have three friends who bought this and after using it consistently were pregnant in two months! I'm thinking of getting one as well. I hope it works for you.

I am not pregnant *yet* but I totally believe this thing is going to get us there! I finally got a peak fertility reading this month which is promising. This is way easier than trying to decipher whether or not the line is dark enough or not on the cheapies. Good luck to you!
