Hate to say I told you so....

Friday's U/S was a bit of a blow. I could tell by Nurse Ratchet's face that things were not quite au fait. She might as well come right out and say "you are a fat non-responder and stop wasting our time here".

I definitely have 10 follicles but they have not grown since last U/S on Tuesday.

Nurse Ratchet gave me the obligatory and desultory pep talk that my lining had increased so they were just about to take off. However, I have seen this episode before and I switched off.

Next pow-wow with my whatevah ovaries first thing on Monday. Deep joy! Now all I get to do this weekend is worry and cry and contemplate the back-end of the retrieval bus driving away in front off me.

Oh no, I am so sorry. I hope Nurse Ratchett is right though and they do start to catch up.

Thinking of you.

I'm sorry, too. It's not fair that you have to suffer through the entire weekend with this news and I hope that the ovaries kick it in gear.

Thinking of you and hoping that tomorrow's results are better than you anticipate. It's miserably hard to wait and hope and be full of fear, and I wish there was some way of getting through this whole process without the emotional rollercoaster.

Sorry to hear the news,I also hope the nurse is right and they catch up this weekend. This is so typical of IVF crap, it's not fair. I just want it to go smoothly for all of us for once. Is that too much to ask? I don't know these days I say thank God for weekends and holidays so I can have my nervy B's then and still manage to somehow get through work.
