So, apparently I used to be a high-rolling infertile.
Yesterday I was at the grocery store to pick up an OPK kit. Today is CD10 so I wanted to start testing. (I usually *medicated-ly* O'ed around CD13 or 14). Anyhow, I was shocked. Have these tests gotten more expensive or did I just not used to care what they cost?
I bought the cheapest kit and came home. I went cabinet diving because I knew I had a left over ovulation test somewhere. I found it. The high-class souped up digital test equipped with the smiley face potential and everything. Holy shit I used to buy those kind?
I was one high rolling infertile.
Mind you, (if you remember or followed me back then) I was laid off the same month I got my BFP. Therefore MANY things have changed for us financially, not just the fact that a kid was added to the mix.
Anyway, I thought that was kind of funny I found it such a luxury to pee on a digital test this morning. Well I guess I should add to the funny-ness of it and let you know that it was actually an EXPIRED test. But hell no I wasn't going to throw it away without peeing on it.
Moving on to the cheapo kit I bought. I noticed that it has a picture of a mother and a baby on it. How offensive. Seriously. If I wouldn't have my own baby I would be offended. Why is there a baby on a freakin OPK kit? I mean some woman might be using it to PREVENT pregnancy. Right? I mean they should have a single woman drinking a martini in a night club on the box. Just a thought.
