Going Gaga on Fertility Monitoring

Yup, I’m beginning to be just like everyone who’s trying to conceive. Going gaga over fertility monitoring. Actually, I’m still in its first phase. What have I done so far? I’ve researched on Ovulation Predictor Kits, Basal Thermometer and Pre-Seed Intimate Moisturizer.

The downside is, all are not available in my side of the world. Great. I thought of asking my older brother (who’s based in LA) to buy all these fertility stuff for me, since he and my mother will be coming home next month. But then again, I decided against it because he might be busy and all. Called my sister (who’s based in Montreal) instead and asked her to buy Pre-Seed for me. She said it might not be available in Montreal. I even e-mailed Pharmaprix and Shopper’s Drug Mart to ask on its availability. Bad news, they don’t carry Pre-Seed.

So what did I do? I went to Pre-Seed’s website, ordered it online and had it delivered to my brother’s address. Cost me $18.99 including shipping and I used my credit card. Huhuhu!!! On YM, my brother told me my package has just arrived. But the upside is, my brother told me to research if Pre-seed is available in Rite Aid. He said shipping is quite expensive, he could have bought it for me in store. Yehey!

Seeing that he was in the right mood to help me out, I had the nerve to ask him also to buy me the following: Clearblue Easy Fertility Monitor, Clearblue Easy Fertility Test Sticks, Ovitrack Basal thermometer and another pack of Pre-seed. All are available in Rite Aid for a total of $220.76, sales tax not included! Whew! I didn’t tell my brother the total cost but I told him these could be quite expensive. I just explained to him the importance of these stuff to my TTC mission and thank God, he did understand. How generous of him indeed.

So there, next month, once I get these stuff, I will surely be more gaga over fertility monitoring. Will keep you posted on my second phase.
