Where do you normally buy your tests? Online or from the store? If you get them from a store, do you ever go to more than one store so you don't look like a lunatic buying so many tests? How many do you normally buy at one time?

Lots of questions. LOL.

I bought them from both places and no, I never drove to a separate store. They can think I'm nuts. I don't care. I usually would buy at least 2 boxes of tests and sometimes three and they were always multi packs. So, sometimes 7-10 tests at one time.

I usually start out with the 88˘ walmart tests. I typically buy them 5 at a time. Most of the time I go at like 2 in the morning (when I get off work) and go thru the self checkout. I'm self-conscious about it for some reason.

I try and buy them online (cheapie ones and FRERs). The cheapies come with my OPKs and I use those daily starting at 8 DPO to satisfy my need to POAS. I'll use a FRER when I get a little close to my period and if it's still neg I just wait or go back to testing with cheapies.

I get one box of FRERs/mo because it's a "subscribe and save" item on Amazon and when you have 5 subscriptions, you get 20% off everything.

When I was trying for the last baby, the first month I did OPK twice sometimes 3 times a day and bought them at the $ store and bought 20 of them at a time. i bought the same amount of HPT too.. I am pretty sure the woman either #1 thought I was insane or #2 running some sort of DIY fertility clinic out of my house..

I buy most of my stuff online, but for FRER or Answer I buy at Wal-Mart. I have bought the dollar store tests before and bought up to 5 at a time.

I did just find out that you can order dollar general tests online though, so it will save me some grief about going to the dollar store again. HA! I'll just be a freak from home and order like 30 of them.
