    I had a look at this and it looks fab. I initially thought I would only consider getting it if nothing had happened for a whilst, but now am thinking that if I am going to spend the money on it, I might as well make the best of it from the start!

    I was surprised to read on their information leaflet that your chances of getting pg by bd'ing two days before rather than on the day of ov were not that much less.

    I've decided to wait for signs that the witch is on her way this month (my temp normally start going down the day or two days before she's due) and order it then so that at least I will have playing with it to look forward to!

    Hey FBbaby, this is my first month so def not an expert but i am loving it! I think half the joy is knowing i press the button, so it feels like we are really doing something positive (if you know what i mean?). I really hope :witch: doesn't come for you and your already :baby: x x x

    Make sure you order it in plenty of time, you will need to set it on day 1 of your cycle or you will have to wait another month to use it

    Thank you. I've seen they do next day delivery with Amazon, so will be on red alert as soon as that temp goes down! Would love to be pg this month, but trying to be realistic!
    It does sound fun to play with...surely we girls are entitled to our fun with electronic toys too!!

    Hi FBaby, don't know if you're in the UK or not, but Tesco have got the CBFMs on offer for £24!!!! until 17th May. I bought one last month and this is my first month using it. They only seem to have them at the bigger tescos where there is a pharmacy. Unfortunatley you can't order online, but i just phoned my nearest big store and asked them to hold one for me.

    Oh, thank you MissKitty. Massive cost difference...On my way to Tesco I am! I knew I wanted to go shopping today, couldn't think of a proper excuse! Then again, AF is due before, maybe I could wait...but then they might be out by then....arggg, what a dilemma this baby making business is!

    I had the same dilemma when i bought mine, but if you find you don't need it after all, you can sell it on ebay for more than £24! :happydance: I'd say get one while you can at that price!

    Unfortunately they don't have the sticks on offer as well! Or they didn't when i bought mine. I think i got mine off amazon for about £13, i didn't feel too bad about spending money on the sticks since i'd saved about £65 on the monitor! :happydance:

    Could someone please confirm - you have to start using it on CD1? I'm on CD3, would I have to wait until next month now?

    Sue Dunhym you programme the monitopr on the first day of your period (in the morning or if your period started in the afternoon or night then programme it for the next day in the morning) You have to read the instructions booklet to fully understand how it works. The monitor will ask you for your first test from CD6 onwards. Depending on your cycle you only need 10 sticks but the monitor may ask for more sticks as its getting to know your cycle.
