And our topic for this week is....... *drum roll*
Financial cost of TTC
So, do you think you've spent a lot on all things TTC or maybe you've just paid for folic acid/pregnancy tests? Tell us all!

I've done my list and I'm really frightened to see how much I've spent!
Ov Tests: 8.64
Preg Tests: 5.61
Supplements (H & me): 45.74
CBFM & sticks: 47
Fertility Friend advanced membership 27.75
Grand total: 164.52
Way more than I thought I had spent but I guess I have spent the last 5 months planning for this cycle so it's only inevitable I picked up everything I needed en route! (That's meant to make me feel better about being so bad with money!)

CBFM & sticks - I've had two lots of sticks so far so maybe £130
Thermom - £10 (lost one)
Preg tests - man, no idea really. some ics, some superdrug, some cb ones. £35 easily i'd say
supplements - again rough guess £10
Books - £15
FF advanced membership about £20 for 6 months
That's all I can think of but that's £220 over 11 months.
It sounds like a lot like that but I don't mind it. CBFM was the only thing I waivered about getting due to cost but I'm glad I did.

Well I haven't noted all of the HPT I've bought but I'd say I've spent at least £100 on them I've spent the best part of £100 on vitamins and prenate tablets, £36 on IVF meds for our first cycle, and then I spent a whopping £900 on our frozen embry transfer in June (which we haven't yet had) £150 on an endometrial scratch which isn't until September so a grand total of £1300! Hopefully it will stop there!

Probably towards £30 on pregnancy tests first time round as a POAS addict. Never got round to buying ICs, just always bought the Boots own which are about £8 each I think.
I only took/take folic acid, which isn't that expensive.
Bought one pack of Boots OPKs at about £8 then found some cheapos in Morrisons for about £2.

No idea on total cost and looking at everyone else I don't think I want to know lol!
I've bought 2 packs of cheapie opks, a thermometer,1 2 pack cbd tests, loads of folic acid and H has had loads of wellman. I've also been having reflexology which although started out for stress I really had for fertility!

Oh I forgot also one tube of Conceive Plus which we used on our successful cycle too at about £7-8.
