PCOS - check. Infertility - check. IVF - check. 43 years young - check. Sick of babydust - fricking double check. Join a Scottish infertile as she slowly swirls down the plughole. Now with added donor egg flava.

Above us only sky

On Friday, there were 2 definites and one maybe.

A discussion was had regarding retrieval vs. IUI. The 3 follicles are all on my left ovary and it is my left tube which is blocked. My right ovary is like the Deathstar - dark and brooding and empty.

After some debate and gnawing of my own hands, we decided to play the cards that have been dealt. Retrieval will be Tuesday morning. I feel at peace with my decision and I am under no illusions as to the odds of anything being left to transfer. I am going back into my cave now.

So sorry honey. I'll spare you the "it only takes one" speech lest you leap through the monitor and strangle me, which I would totally deserve. Hoping for the best.

Having had three with my last IVF, I know that it's hard and hope so desperately that they find more on Tuesday. Take care of yourself.

I'm so sorry. This crap sucks so much. I know it's impossible to do for yourself (trust me, I know) but I'm still hoping for you. A ton.

I'm so sorry. I was hoping for more, like I'm sure you did, too. But I can still hope that there will be more found on Tuesday!!

Three has always been my lucky number, I hope it's lucky for you.

Keeping you in my thoughts and wishing you the very best.
