Well last cycle I took 20+ IC's and 2 FRER and more OPKs that I can count LOL. Maybe this cycle one of them will be a BFP...

Umm...with my last I probably took in the range of 40....90% of those being ICs though. I had the bad batch Wondfos and was getting tons of wonky results..so I kept retesting.

oh lord...i'd probably say 25? but i'm using last cycle TTC where we got a BFP as the example - so I blew through about 7 tests just testing out the trigger...and easily another 15-20 testing for the BFP and then agonizing over it until we confirmed m/c was happening with the betas.

I would say something like 30? This was the first cycle I had Clomid and a trigger shot and tested it out like crazy, then was testing something like 2-3x/day once I hit 8 or 9 dpo. I was convinced I was gonna get a BFP. No luck -- that was a frustrating cycle!! lol.

I guess I'm not as much as an addict. I would say maybe 10, but don't know because I haven't counted!
