    Last month I almost had to remortgage the house to keep me in supply of hpts. AF finished on Weds and DH and I are trying smep this cycle. Yesterday I did my first opk this cycle. Am going to try and limit it to 1 a day! :rofl:

    Any other addicts out there needing support to try and stay away from those sticks?! I'm here for you. :)

    Lol. This is why I havent started using OPKs because I tend to get obsessive about stuff & I know that once I start, I wont be able to stop!

    Hiiiii, Peach Blossom!

    to make it cheaper, you should buy them over the internet in bundles! You'd save a ton!

    I'm a poas-a-holic too. I'm back to WTT...but if there is even a trace of hope of an "oops," I go to town! I'd pee on jsut about anything if it told me I was knocked up hahaha

    Oh man!! I have gone through so many OPKs it's unreal!! During my 3rd or 4th cycle I was only using one a day and we pretty much missed my O, so now this cycle I am using them twice a day since day 14 --it's day 23 now and still no O!! That's A LOT of OPKs!! :laugh2:

    I even started using them yesterday instead of waiting till tomorrow like it said too. :blush: I had a faint line yesterday and today it was much darker. Lighter than the control but not by much which surprised me as I don't expect a + OPK till Tuesday or Wednesday.

    Last month I only used 2 hpt but this month I bought 6 that and I'm trying to wait till Monday to start but it's really really hard! My husband thinks I'm crazy because I just cant wait till i miss my period. Every month is gets worse!

    um.... I did 2 today... I'm so weak!

    I've been doing the opks at about 8pm each day, but I had pain that felt like ov pain last night and lots of ewcm this morning and all day. My DH was coming to meet me for lunch so I asked him to bring one of my tests just in case.... It was darker this afternoon than it was yesterday evening or this evening... Still negative though.... Could I have missed the LH surge testing so late in the day? All other signs are pointing to ovulation.... Hmmmm....
