how much do you spend on ttc?


Its amazing how expensive it can be!! Iv spent quite a lot in previous months, thank god iv been able to find it all cheaper online or found cheaper alternatives. Its so easy to spend a fortune with opks, hpts, preseed, fertility monitors, thermometers, ff membership.... Arghhhh! OH would have a fit if he could see what iv spent before. So ladies, be honest, how much have you spent on ttc?!

Not a great deal tbh. I've only bought a few hpt's in the past as I usually come on when I'm supposed to. But this month I've spent about 10ish that's 10 IC's and 10 OPKs from wilkinsons haha. First month buying OPKs though

XxX

So far:

1 pack of 3 pregnancy tests (about $16)

1 bottle of EPO capsules (< $5)

2 bottles B-Complex (about $5 each)

1 bottle of Prenatal Vitamins (can't remember how much it cost. Under 10 bucks).


So about $40, I guess.

Oh my.. our biggest investment until now would def. be HPT's.. I eventually gave in and bought a bulk pack online since we were spending 5-10 bucks per test prior! I'd have to say it's been at least $80-100 on HPT's (cuz we were getting several of the expensive type for months!) .. but I just got a BBT and some bulk OPK's as well.. so overall.. roughly 120-150 bucks give or take.. just on TRYING to conceive. They aren't kiddin' when they say that kids are expensive.. even trying is expensive

I think, if I ever inherit a chunk of money, I'm going to invest it in the hpt industry.
They've definitely got a nice little racket going.

How do we get a piece of that action MissZoiex?? Well my bill would be huge compared to others, add in the Gyno visit coming up and all the times Ive been to see the docs re oopsies, blood tests, hpts, pre natals, opks, hmm do we have to claim a portion of our interent bill for BnB?? Easily would have to be the $500 mark so far if not more, worth every penny if it equals a baby in the end!

Mine must be a fortune!

I just spent about 60 on CB digital OPKS, softcups and EPO.
I spent 16 the other day on pre-natal vits.

Probably easily 100+ on OPKS and HPTS & vits in previous months...

If I get my BFP though it will all be worth it!!

Plus I plan to win the lottery this weekend. If I do I'll send you all a crate load of HPTS and OPKs

Wow, that's a really great plan! I think I may have to plan to do that soon as well
