Canada, IVF iphone App & Waiting

Went to Canada for 5 weeks, visiting family and friends, and enjoying the winter season. I'm now back in France and waiting anxiously for my next IVF appointment, which is the 22 February. I had to cancel the appointment in January, as I wasn't able to get all the tests done, since I was in the land of the true north, strong and free. The Cat Man got all of his sperm tests done and I need to wait for my next period in order to get my blood test done to see where my hormone levels are at (hopefully they are not raging too badly).

While I was in Canada, a new IVF predict iphone app came out, which can apparently give you a "personalised prediction of your chance of success with IVF." I am a hopeful IVFer so I was curious and tried it out. I have a 15.7% chance of success!
OMG! Does this mean give up and forget about it or is there a glimmer of hope?
Is the glass half empty or half full? In my case, my glass is 84.3% empty! Well, no app is going to stop me from trying. For those fellow IVFers that are curious about this app it can be found at

In the meantime, I'm waiting for the 22 February to roll around so that I can start IVF cycle #3 with a hopeful and optimistic perspective.
