sooo worth it.

you can track pretty much the same with a basic account, but the VIP will also interpret your chart. it will give you a green light when it thinks you should BD and it analyzes your history. it’s really just a big help.

i bought a shorter membership (thinking positively that i would be preggo and done with it soon), but i may have to extend it when this month is over. as long as i am TTC, i will have the VIP.

I loved the VIP features. I would wait until they have a promo though. They have them frequently and they often take the cost down from $45-ish/year to $20-ish/year.

@givemecouture:  From what I recall (I’m 31 weeks pregnant at the moment, so haven’t been using FF for the past eight months…hence my hazy memory!), they usually post about them in banners across the top of the site. You can also check their FB page for promos.

I would be afraid to use a facebook promo, because I don’t want my friends to know that I’m TTC. :/

@bunnymama:  I’ve seen where a lot of the bees, will create a fake FB, to get the promo code. I think that’s what I am going to do as well. I also don’t want my FB friends seeing that I am TTC.

Good post! I was just wondering this this morning. 

@lindsayandchris09:  I had the same worries, this could be a good solution, but it seems like a lot of work. grrrr.

There is a promo now, I just logged in to see prices:

$45 – 365 Days VIP Membership
62.5% Off. – Regular $120.

I also checked the FB “promo” and to get the coupon update and use the coupon you need to like their page and post on their wall….that’s TMI for me and my FB friends.

@bunnymama:  When you “like” FF on Facebook, you can adjust the settings to be private so it won’t show up in your newsfeed. You can later unlike FF if you want. 

@bijou214:  I use the VIP version (with FB promo!), and I like it. It’s nice to have the extra data interpretation stuff. I didn’t cave and order it until we’d been trying for almost a year, so you could just use the basic features for a few months and then order the VIP version if TTC is taking longer. FF also offers free trials of the VIP version periodically, so you would get to use the advanced features then to see if they’re worth it to you. I would recommend waiting to get the VIP version until you’re actively TTC. There’s no use wasting some of your paid months if you don’t have to.

they have a FB promo right now for $24.95/year. i went ahead and did it. i was able to change the setting so that nobody could see FF on my page or in the newsfeed (although most of my friends know that we’re planning on TTC soon).

Meh.  Try temping with the basic for free for 6 months first.  BD at least every other day or every third day until you confirm an O date.  Since you have been NTNP for 10 months I would temp for 6 months and then make an appointment with a repro endo if you don’t have a BFP in that time period (make sure to keep good charts and print them off to take to the appointment.)  I tried the VIP membership and thought it was nice to have but not worth paying for in my case but I studied hard and had no problems interpreting my charts (or posting them for other ladies to interpret.)
