As a long time resident of our TTC board here on iVillage, I know a lot of us decided to add things to our "fanny packs" or "toolboxes" to maximize results and get that BFP!

I used Instead cups after BD and I swear they worked like a charm!

The nice thing about TTC my second for years is I knew what I needed this time around. I know what worked for me in the past, what was a waste of money and where to get it cheap. So let's see what do I have ... I still have my fertility monitor and I used it this cycle. I had a large supply of internet cheapy OPKs. I found that they work just as well as the pricier brand name ones at a much lower cost. I have my BBT thermometer for temping and charting. I have a varying supply of HPTs from the internet cheapies to waste on early testing, middle range for closer to when AF is due and the digital ones if I get a BFP on the others.

Experience is definitely an advantage! ;) My favorite part is the supply of HPTs....when I finally got that BFP, I decided that there was no need to take up cabinet space in my bathroom, I must take the rest of the HPTs! ;) That was definitely the fun part!
