My “Back To Basics” DIY Kit

This is what is standing in my bathroom, here it is, my total DIY kit:

See how realistic I am, in the mix we have tampons and sanitary towels for the various days as well as individually wrapped intimate wipes. We have Preseed, we have a bouche bottle for the lovely Bicarb douche, we have OPK’s and HPT’s and we even have a little tub of progestrone cream. Now between all of that an my Digital BBT thermometer, if its not going to happen, then I guess its not going to happen right? OPK started showing an inclination towards a positive this morning so………

Am I missing anything other than, say, a fertility specialist and a few thousand rands worth of injections?

    Looks like you’ve covered all the bases but how about:

    – an alarm clock to wake up 2 hours after douche
    – and Loving Music to get you in the mood. (ha ha)

    I really hope your luck changes very soon, thinking about you.

    I suppose your hip elevating pillow won’t fit in the kit…but surely you’ve got it at your bedside. Hubby suggested an inversion table yesterday…but that might give me a headache.

    You are SO organised! My stuff usually lies around all over the place – beside table, window sill in bathroom, on top of the laundry basket etc! I’m praying that DIY works now more than ever!!!

    Totally need to package that and sell it over the Interwebs!

    Do you have all your vitamins, folic acids, pre-natals and ice cream?

    I’ve packed away my ovulation microscope because I found it to be not reliable. Is yours reliable? What brand do you use?
