Hello to the 40ish, would you like to walk the current/next IVF cycle together to give each other some additional emotional support?
Hi Angie, stay strong through the injections, very soon all these painful jabs will be overHi all, I just started my first IVF cycle and am gonna have the egg retrieval next week. I’m a bit nervous and anxious. Can anyone give me some heads up? Thank you.
Hi Meeta, I think it depends on the schedule of NUH, you may like to ask when is the earliest you can start. Either way, you have to wait till day one of your menses to commence a fresh cycle, which will take around 10ish days of injections, depending on your body response, before they retrieve the eggs for fertilisation. All the best for your IVF!Hi new to this. Going for my ivf counselling at nuh this week. Totally confused. How long it takes to start after counselling. Pls advise

How are you feeling now? Did your doctor tell you how your progress is?
It will be good to take it easy now and not do anything to strenuous as you are carrying more eggs in your ovaries.
I always find it useful to drink V8 juice and also coconut water after my egg retrieval, somehow helped me cope much better with the bloatedness so I usually stock up on those and I also just rest and watch Netflix after retrieval and reduce my movement for the first couple of days. Hope that helps and feel free to message
It will. Sending you positive vibes and wishing you many good quality harvest!Hi Jellybean,
Thank you so much for your heads up. I’m going to have the egg retrieval in the middle of this week. I’m feeling good and the doctor said everything looks good now. I hope things will go well. Thanks again.

Hi Angie, how are you feeling after your OPU? What makes you say the harvest was not good? And depending on the number of embryos, you may be doing a fresh transfer?Thank you, Jellybean. The harvest was not so good. I’m still waiting for the result. Do you suggest me start the 2nd IVF cycle soon?
I just realized that you are going to have/had your ET this week. How is everything going? I wish you a successful one.
Hi Meera,I just finished my counselling. They told me to wait for my january menses and start in february. Just worried and panicky. How long does the process go.
Hi menolleb, welcome! This is a space for us to share our experiences and questions, ups and downs... knowing that we are not alone in this long journey.I would love to be included if it’s still possible!
Is there any WA group going?Hi, anyone starting a watsapp group? hehe
I'm with them for my first cycle in Oct last year.Hi i am reaching 40 too... i would like to be included too, if it is still possible. Also, can i check if anyone has experience or heard of experience of ivf at CARE at novena?
Dear Jessica,Hi, I am considering egg donation but am apprehensive. SG allows import of frozen eggs. I found out that Mount E works with Ovogene which was formerly known as first egg bank. If you have experience with egg donation, can you please share?
ps: there is a lot of news article and website info posted by a couple of members. I’d like to hear from someone who has had experience of using a donated egg. Thanks
Hi Cindy,Hi, I had my first cycle of IVF cancelled as the doctor retrieved no eggs. I just had my egg retrieval for my second cycle and this time round they managed to get 20 eggs. However I am having mild OHSS. I am quite worried if I can proceed with the embryo transfer.
Hi Claire,Hi Ladies,
Glad to find this group, Am going to be 40 soon & have IVF counselling session next month. How soon they start the process after counselling? Past couple of months am just googling and reading about IVF experiences and scared a bit
Dear Jellybean2020,Hi Cindy,
Well done on the good harvest. I think with OHSS usually doctor will advise not to transfer as if you do get pregnant, the symptoms will only get worse. Do observe your swelling and reduce activity. I find it useful to drink V8 and coconut water instead of plain water, somehow that helped me. Take care!
I did inform my superior that I'm going for fertility treatment as there will quite a bit of unplanned absentism & the HL due to ER & ET.Morning ladies. I am scheduled to do my first ivf in NUH soon. Also in my 40. Is your workplace supportive? Yet to inform my superiors. Not sure how to inform them. Any tips & advice would be appreciated.
Hahahaha it’s so hard! Me is currently 4dp4dt.. really nerve wrecking this twwHello everyone, I'm 40 this year, just did my 1st ET of 3days embryo a few days ago. The 2 weeks wait is really long! I don't have signs of implantation after 5days & my test kits came back negative (I know I'm not supposed to test due to inaccuracy). How do you cope with the 2 weeks wait?
I did a day 5 transfer yesterday and my pregnancy test is scheduled 8 days later. I wonder if the pregnancy test is scheduled too early.Hello everyone, I'm 40 this year, just did my 1st ET of 3days embryo a few days ago. The 2 weeks wait is really long!

How did ur superior take it? With current covid situation, I am scare my company (total 3 staffs) will ask me take unpaid leave for days I need to visit nuh or discriminate me and find ways to terminate or make me resign.I did inform my superior that I'm going for fertility treatment as there will quite a bit of unplanned absentism & the HL due to ER & ET.
My superior & select few colleagues who know are all supportive. However, there are bound to be others who are unhappy about it.How did ur superior take it?

Congratulations! Did you inform the nurse about your concern? I read that they usually have a few more tests after the initial? Do correct me if I'm wrong.I did a day 5 transfer yesterday and my pregnancy test is scheduled 8 days later. I wonder if the pregnancy test is scheduled too early.
Btw, not every women will have signs of implantation even if implantation does take place. So better try and focus on other things and wait for the pregnancy test.
How do you pass this tww? Everyone's telling me bedrest & Netflix but it makes me feel so lumpy & useless.Hahahaha it’s so hard! Me is currently 4dp4dt.. really nerve wrecking this tww
