    IVF 2019

    No symptoms at all except some light cramping and bloatedness but nothing too major. I also had loose bowels a week before my beta test (sorry is this TMI?)- the kind that I usually have before my period comes so I thought it was going to be negative. I was extremely tempted to do a HPT but I...

    What’s a pregnancy pulse? Sounds cool. No, my acupuncturist told me to stop going after ET. I assume it’s not safe as it’s still early? I might go back after first trimester.

    Han TCM Clinic. My acupuncturist is Dr Joyce Chee. She’s very young, medically trained and very good. Oh another tip she gave me was, after ER and ET, to always cover my feet with socks even at home to make sure my body is kept warm to help with implantation.

    IVF 2019

    Hey ladies (and gentleman) I had my egg retrieval on Saturday morning at KKH. It wasn’t as traumatising as I was expecting but still quite.... surreal. Anyway I don’t feel bloated but I feel like my stomach area is tighter. Not sure how to explain it. Like when I stand up straight I feel like...

    My next scan is on Monday! So excited. I just started Orangultran injections today and that one hurt; my belly is all reddish now. Do you know if your husband will be waiting for you at the hospital during your ER? Or will he only come pick you up after you’re discharged? Still unsure what to...

    Yes I've been going for acupuncture for the past 2 months and I must say my flow is richer red and no cramps/ any PMS symptoms at all. My body also feels warmer as I used to feel cold easily, hopefully this would help with the IVF!

    IVF 2019

    Hey everyone, I just started my first injection today for IVF. Finally as my period was a week late this month, had to take pills to delay my period as I had scheduled a trip before my IVF journey started. I am self-injecting 125ml of Puregon for 4 days, and then doing Puregon AND Orgalutran...
