i haven't got Velcro black outs but a roller blind black out !! its brilliant for keeping lo's room dark! but find i have to put his night light on so i can find him in the dark!lol i think if i didn't have the blind as soon as the light caught his eye he'd be wide awake!

we went through most of last summer with a cheap roller blind with duvets and cushions draped over and stuffed behind trying to keep our LO's room dark as she has a velux window. and the sun sets her side of the house so it would be light until gone 10pm, then I gave in and bought a proper velux blackout blind.

We've got the Gro Company Gro Anywhere blackout blind and it's really good. It's not velcro though, it suckers onto the window.
We also have a blackout roller blind and curtains but find that lots of light gets in around the edges of the blind so the Gro Anywhere blind keeps the chinks of light out

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
