<_< <_< <_<
I ordered some more OPK's from 'fertility naturopath' Monday last week and they STILL aren't here in todays post!!
At this rate they will be too late by the time they get here!! ARGH!
I called them and they said supposedly it takes 5-7 working days for a standard sized envelope to get from QLD to WA!! <_< Not impressed... Plus you pay $6.95 for postage, so it's not cheap!!
sorry just had to grumble..

Oh no Ange! Still not here?!! Did you pay by DD bank deposit? If so blame the banks. I did that first time and took 8 days or so (including the weekend) so this time around I phoned an order and paid by credit card. Did this Friday, they got sent Fri arvo and arrived late Monday arvo (I am brissie, so it's extra fast by CC). DD take ages to clear, esp if your bank is slow to transfer funds. Fingers crossed they arrive soon!!!

I did a phone order and paid by Credit Card, they said it was dispatched last Monday.. grr..
So lets hope it arrives tomorrow!

I got mine from a parcel guy, so will probably come the same for you, which takes longer from Brissie to Perth (my sister and I send parcels all the time back and forth and send it express for that very reason - only takes 2 days rather than 4 or so, Brissie to Perth). Surely they will come today?!!! NF used to send them flat, but now they are all packaged in a small box, so I think that is why it takes longer (mine first pack came with the normal post). How annoying, though.

Yeah very annoying!!
Yeah last time they were in a standard envelope, so I'll look out for the parcel guy tomorrow. Today's post has already come and gone..
10/10/2006, 03:19 PM
Remember I said the same thing in our BG and then the parcel guy rocked up at 4pm, long after the post had come. So don't give up all hope until it gets dark!! I was spewing as had just gone and bought somemore supermarket rip off ones as I was out of OPKs and the postie hadn't brought my internet cheapies. Fingers crossed for yours!!!

Ok ok ok... I take it all back!!
LOL Twitchynose, you were right!! The parcel man just delivered them!!!
Now I feel like a right fool! hahaha
BTW, the OPK was just about +ve, so I think it'll be +ve tomorrow... good thing they came!!
10/10/2006, 04:45 PM
Yay Ange! Hope it does show up +ve for you tomorrow..that'd be almost a 'normal' O date!
10/10/2006, 05:15 PM
Haha. Isn't that always the way when we want something to arrive really badly. Heres hoping you wont be waiting too much longer for that positive OPK.
10/10/2006, 05:19 PM
glad they turned up Ange - sounds like it was just in time!!
Good luck for this month

LOL, was just checking in to see if you got your OPKs Ange, and saw they had arrived. Better late than never right. And cool, we're at the same spot in our cycle, I got nearly a positive today too. I am using a few OPKs a day, and expect I'll probably see my + by this evening or tomorrow at the latest. Love the cheapies, no guilt on being a POAS addict, ROFL. C'mon little spermies....you can do it, go get that egg!!!!
11/10/2006, 01:55 PM
great that you got them... good luck
i have to say, mine arrive in less than 24 hours, to north coast of NSW, not as far as WA but i was impressed
