    Hi, anyone scheduled to do IVF in April 2018 at KKH? I am still waiting for call regarding the briefing. Not sure if any gals are waiting as well? :)

    Hi I just went for my briefing last Wednesday And preparing for IVF in April at Kk too is this your first IVF? Or have you done IUI in kk too?

    Hi :) just called the clinic and they are confirming with the Dr if I can proceed with the Apr one as they had the impression I am going for 1 more IUI first. That’s why I haven’t had any briefing session yet. Finger crossed. My first iui was unsuccessful, also at KKH.

    Thank you dear! I did the jab on my own this morning and it wasn't so bad, almost didn't feel it . Just the part to push in was scary at first hehe. I experienced a bit of cramp about an hour later a wee bit like menses cramp thats all. My period came 2 days late this month and I too felt like it was forever!

    Hello Babes, may i know what is the procedure of ivf?
    I understand that for SO-IUI, hormones injection is done during CD1-CD14 depend on individual, den washed sperm are being inject to female body after injection to release the egg, den two weeks wait. How about IVF?

    Hi BunnyKK, im still in progress too. Not very sure of the full timeline yet. Im currently on stimulation CD 1-10. After tat i will check with doctor on the progress. So every people timeline varies depend on how your body react to the stimulation. After the eggs are matured, they will schedule for eggs retrieval. They will combine eggs with sperm in lab.. wait until few days 3-5 days then they will transfer back the embryo into uterus. Hope this simple explanation helps :)

    Hi BunnyKK, sorry to reply this late but I guess Cesca has summed up pretty much of it. True that each IVF experience really depends much on individual. I for one had only 4 days of jabs, last being on 11th April for scan and then 13th Egg Retrieval and they collected hub's sample and I was sent home with vaginal inserts squirt thingy for 2 days prior to ET. On 14th they call for hub's 2nd sample for the 2nd n 3rd egg. 18th I had my Egg Transfer. Currently, I am still on the 2WW HL ... I feel so fine that I hardly think of anything and constantly remind myself to keep it slow and steady n not prance ard like rabbit. I didn't do any SOIUI. I went straight to IVF Best luck to all of us here!

    How are u Cesca! Coming along fine?

    Feeling a bit down after the scanning yesterday - only see 2 eggs size 9 and 11mm. The other two is too small 5mm so may not grow in time. Basically i will only have 2 eggs. But trying to be positive here, hope those 2 eggs grows super strong .

    How is the ET process is it painful or not?
    Your waiting will be over soon dont worry too much dear :) Take lots of rest dont overdo yourself..

    Hi ladies (& men if there are),

    My IVF treatment started April 2018 but period came early on 29/03 at night. I got to call IVF Centre on Saturday 31/03 & was told to come down immediately for the ultrascan. Was given the stimulation jabs on the same day and scheduled for next ultrascan on 06/04. Jab was then increased & had last ultrascan the next day. I hate that seeing the doc was so fast that I don’t even know what’s really going on. How many follicles has grown or what’s the size.

    My egg pick up was done on Tues 10/04 with only 1 egg retrieved. I was devasted. I went home crying. Then got a call from nurse just to inform me the time to come back on Thurs 12/04! Nothing else was said. Day came & was finally told my egg had fertilised by ICSI method. It was a grade 4 embryo.

    Days went by & I got spotting exactly 1 week after ET, 19/04. Brushed off my worries. Spotting became brown discharge. & I’m still on crinone. Heavy bleeding started on Sunday 22/04. I’m doomed. Getting period days before my scheduled blood test. Why? I cried so bad till my hubby had to come home while serving his reservist. He called the clinic to have an early blood test today 24/04.

    I was ready to hear a BFN from the nurse when she called. Nope! She said blood has traces of pregnancy with hcg level 25 and told me to take another blood test this thurs! This trying and waiting is making me so depressed!

    Could it be ectopic? I also had a negative blood test - HCG 2 on 6-Apr but was admitted to hospital yesterday due to severe abdominal pain.

    It’s now HCG 1200 and confirmed to be ectopic.

    Dear Cesca, pls do not feel sad. I too had a few small ones at my 1st scan aft only 4 days of stim. My Dr wanted to ER on 13th because one of them was really large at 17mm. By the 13th, afew others grew and total 3 retrieved. So have faith that by your ER others may grow too *hugz*

    Don't worry abt the ER. The most painful one for me was when they prick your top hand for that drip/aneastheisa meds inlet. When you are in..it looks daunting with the bright lights and sooo many people lol. Perhaps, another incomfy moment is when they last scan u b4 the procedure coz u are so bloated and crampy. Then when they say good night n the anaesthesia kicks in...I was out in 10 seconds. Woke up fine just drowsy but nothing else. When is yours?

    ET was not painful but was just uncomfortable as we have to have a full bladder. I had to pee 2x while waiting for my dr haha luckily I filled back up in no time. It was a very fast procedure. The getting ready was slow coz need to confirm on the embryos n some pep talk.

    Good Luck Cesca!

    Some pple get symptoms or signs 8 days aft transfer but best to wait for the blood test.

    Sorry to hear about your case, dear. Eat well and get well soon *huggz*
    Hi Elia, so your test is going to be next Friday? I am week one today. I went out on Saturday for a bit. Dr says ok to go out n eat as long I dont over exert myself. I have stopped coffee since Sunday and am itching to make one every single morning haha. I do follow my husb for a stroll and buy fruits back - I carry nothing except my bloated belly. I get tired n wanna sleep till 10/11am ...just trying to think positive always

    Hi @Butteredsoup, my bt will be on 7 may. The first time I had my fresh transfer, i walked quite a lot cause i heard from some forum that walking help with blood circulation to the womb but in the end failed cycle. So this time, I do the opposite haha.. Didn't go out till the 6th day which is yst. I got my ET on last Friday.
    One more week to go dear! Really hope your wish will come true. Let's spur each other on!! :)

    Hello everyone!!! This is my CD 8! Went for ultrasound today and was told to come back on Monday for another scan...I don't really have much symptoms from e stimulatio drugs so I feel pretty much BAU...did u guys go back to work during the 2ww...does it start from the day of egg pick up?
     
  47. Butteredsoup

    Butteredsoup Member

    Hi SRV, yes the HL starts from ER date as your ET will just be in a couple of days away. Some people may still feel weak after the ER. I didn't go back to work because I wanted to stay away from the stress and take it easy. Not sure about the rest. At least I knw I did my part if it doesn't work out...
