Icic. Hopefully everything goes well for all of us! So nervous! When was your ER done? 14 days after your menses start or after injection start? I wanna estimate when my husband should take leave.
Dr Tan JS from ivf bridge told me stim shots are usually for 10 to 12 days. But of cos it depends on how ur follicles respond.
Im 35. Amh 1.29. Abt same as you. My fsh was 6ish. And my stims was for 11days.

Hope this is helpful.

Yes thanks for the info. Nurse said I'm starting with suppressant injections first.

Oh i see. Is that long protocol? That im not familiar with. Which clinic or hospital are you with?
I'm with sgh. I'm not sure. I just think they will see what treatment suits you best and apply accordingly. They study each case before deciding what kind of injections and for how long. They should know best :)

Yes. Just have faith. As it is there are enough things for us to worry about already. Im so numb, Im just embracing the chance i have with ivf. I will jab whatever they ask me to jab lol. Best of luck!

Because you will be put under during the ER, so when you wake up, the doc and nurses will be gone and you will be alone until they come back to check on you. That period between being awake until someone come to check on you, you will be very very anxious to know number of eggs retrieved. I have seen someone said that the doc wrote the number on her palm so the moment she woke up she knew str away the outcome. You might wanna ask your doctor for this small favour.

Also the bloating after ER could be quite serious, loose and comfy clothings will be helpful.

Do remember to check with them at what intervals and time of day the embryologist will call to notify you of the progress of the eggs/embryos. The anxiety for the next 5 days will be tough, so knowing the timing of the calls will definitely help with the emotions.

Apart from the above, enjoy the sleep.
Good luck

Thank you, so much for your reply, i got my periods
Yours came full on before the blood test?
Were you on progesterone?

I have the same spotting started 9dp5dt.
On 10dp5dt, the pink/brown spotting changed to darker red. There was cramps too.

Blood test is on Monday.

Hi all, I had my 1st jab tdy after lmf scan.. Any foods or drinks to take or avoid during this 10days?
Eat like you are already pregnant, not in terms of portion but in terms of quality. Cos u need food to support the growth of the follicles and good quality eggs. Depending on what meds you are on, some may result in constipation. Include more fiber in your diet.

Always keep hydrated. Avoid caffeine and alcohol.

I avoided alcohol but caffeine still 1 cup/day.. No constipation (really lucky else I b more stress) I literally lost my appetite n ate 1/4 portion of my usual esp after orgalutran jab.. Gg day 8 review tml morning...

Hugs. Yes. I went for my beta. Positive but I’m bleeding a lot because progesterone are very low.

Hugs!
ER is not so bad. I din even remember much because of the sedation. I was fortunate to have my husband with me that day.

After ER, pls drink isotonic drinks and continue to eat well. Helps with hydration and minimize symptoms of OHSS.
I went for walks every morning after that to prevent blood clots. Don’t lie in bed all day. You will want to recuperate well for the embryo transfer that follows 3 or 5 days later.

Resume?

After ER, u will be given 1-2 days mc to rest. It’s afterall an invasive procedure. Think of it like a surgery.

I had my egg pick up on 14 Nov n the Dr jerry told me I could not do fresh cycle as my hormone is high n lining is not in the normal range. Need to go frozen cycle. I had 12 eggs removed n today the nurse called me said only 1 embryo put to frozen. I'm so upset. Anyone can share?

How old are u if u don't mind? Are u with Dr Jerry Chan from kkh? Me too.

Anyone heard or experience before in the end left 1. Would u still go for frozen cycle or start all over again?
Unfortunately some left with none thou. Most of the time they will encourage u to go for the frozen cycle first (finishing ur embryos in freezer) before starting a new one..

I'm 35 this Yr. I with with thh but he left so I choose Dr jerry. No sure how good he is.
U did ur? I had 12 eggs yet only 1 embryo survive yet still can't do fresh cycle n have to go through frozen. But the success rate won't be high too since only 1 embryo n also have to see if this embryo survive after thaw before can do.

We won't know our hormone level before we do the egg pick up then at least can do something to lower the hormone?

I think there’s age consideration before u can put 2 embryos anyway.

Maybe just focus on building your constitution well for the FET?

one of my friend did go ahead with the 1 frozen embbies that she has.
but she was being prep by the doc that in the event the embby did not thaw well, they will have to abandon the cycle.

check with the embryologist and ask her about the embryos that did not make it? when I ask my embryologist, she did give me more information like.. me, collected 30 follicles, 15 eggs, 9 fertilized, 2 abnormal and has to be abandon, 7 made it to the freezer.

But I had D3 embbies, KKH usually practised blastocyst right?

Generally, no news is good news! Means the embryo is developing and hence no reason to call you earlier for sudden transfers. KKH didn't inform me about embryo status and number of eggs retrieved till I was in the room to do the embryo transfer process.

Did she succeed with 1 embryo?
Yes the embryologist told me 12 eggs, 6 fertilized, 1 abnormal and 5 dunno y also cannot make it. Left 1 which I already knew at Day 2 will put to frozen.

Sorry what you mean abt D3 embbies? Not sure abt the term blastocyst.

11 days after egg pick up. Mine is different I think cos the doctor has advice me to do frozen instead of fresh before my egg pick up. Haiz I cried in the theatre before startinf the procedure.

I have 6 eggs, but just have one frozen embryo. After rest for two months, I did the FET, lucky I got pregnant now. So don’t be so upset, one embryo is a baby:)

She is still in her tww!
Typo in the earlier message, mine are D2 embryos (embbies), blastocyst is typically between D5-D7 embryos.. you can google the term!

Just prep yourself the best as possible, keep calm and remember you only need One :)

Research has shown transferring two with different grades of embryos has possibilities of the poorer grade embryos affecting the implantation rate..

Maybe it is for greater Good.ur doctor maybe thinks that better delay ur transfer due to hormonal imbalance, which is important for implantation... Just prep urself with the FET soon okay...
