I haven’t used an OPK, but I’m currently using the BD Basal Digital Thermometer.  It beeps while detecting your temperature, so you can tell if it’s working.  If Darling Husband is sleeping, I just hold my finger over the back to muffle the sound.  I’m new to charting, but it seems to work pretty well, so far.

I use the same thermometer as Blueshoes and I use the ClearBlue Digital Ovulation tests – I buy them from Amazon for less than at the local drugstore.  My husband is now used to the sound of the thermometer so he sleeps right through it.

Good luck and have fun!

I bought the Clearblue Easy on ebay for a little over $100 and I really like it!  I use the Target pink Basal Thermometer.

I use the same BBT as blueshoes and 1littlep – I like that it lights up so that I can easily check the temp on even the darkest of winter mornings (not that we have to deal with that for a while).

And I use the OPK’s from earlypregnancytests.com.  They’re fairly inexpensive and they provide free shipping (to Canada too – woo woo) if you spend over 15.00 (which is pretty easy to do – heh).

Bummer to see this post testing buddy 🙁   But it sounds like charting and OPK’s will help you understand your cycle better…which means a better chance at a BFP Smile

I use the Amazon Wondfo ovulation tests. They were super cheap (I got 40 OPKs + 10 early HPTs for under $10). They aren’t terribly convenient, though, because A) You have to let the urine come to room temperature and B) You have to pee into a cup and then dip the stick. I’ve also used (and much preferred) the Clearblue Digital Ovulation tests (also from Amazon). That one was 20 tests for $40, but I had a living social Amazon coupon, so I got it at half off. I really liked those because it gave a cute smiley face, but I can’t yet justify spending so much on them.

The BBT I use I got from Walmart for $8 or $9 dollars. I don’t remember the brand, but it has a pink handle.
