Salam,

Im with NUH, supposed to start my IVF march but due to covid situation NUH stopped all ivf procedure. I am still waiting for my turn, as they have resume IVF but only for women aged 35 aboved with low AMH. I am currently 29 years old. So i think its going to be a few months wait. Is this your first IVF cycle sis?

Hopefully your wait won't be a long one sis. :) Yes, this will be my first IVF cycle. I had my 1st appt at KKH in 2017 due to dysfunctional uterine bleeding. Went through treatments until late last year and finally in Feb I was told that I could proceed with IVF. Natural conception seems unlikely for me as my right tube is blocked and the left one is not in excellent condition either. The nurse who called informed that I may join either the June or July cycle pending my next menses. I'm turning 36 this year, TTC for 4 years now. As the date draws nearer I'm getting more and more nervous.

salam all,

idk if this thread is still ongoing but i’ve been reading and im soooo motivated and pump reading all thos motivations, perseverance and the BFP’s of course.

i’ve been ttc for 2 years and 28 yrs old this year. had one miscarriage early stages, konon bunting pelamin tapi tk realize then kau, gi theme park main roller coaster bagai balik malam bleeding.

i have a stressful work life and demanding boss - so that surely affects my ability and mindset to BD with husband as i am always tired.

since i am wfh now, its the best time to kick start everything again. unfortunately, im PCOS. i am currently under Dr Aziz care, which he prescribed me clomid which I am on my 3rd day and just looking to see if im ovulating using ovulation strip, and if yes its BD all the way.

i am being positive all the way to see where my fate will takes me but i have also made plans and secure a IVF appt with Prof Wong at NUH for IVF.

I sounds crazy and very spot on, but, i know my body could do so much better but just need a little knock!

I'm currently in my two week wait. Did my ET this morning. Been a rollercoaster of a month, now praying hard that my embaby will stick. All the best to the both of you. May Allah bless all of us with zuriat of our own, ameeen...

Salam,
Personally I did not follow any strict diet. Just made sure that I took my daily portion of veg and fruits with my daily meals and I did not take any red meat. Based on what I managed to read up here, what I did follow was taking 2 brazil nuts and 1-2 hard boiled eggs daily and made sure that I stayed hydrated. I was concerned that I might get OHSS coz I have PCOS, so I made sure to drink 100 plus as well. It definitely helped coz i did feel slightly bloated at times. So I would definitely advise you to stock up on 100 plus. :)

I'm 3dp5dt today. Trying verrry hard not to spot symptoms. Overall though, been feeling crampy since ET and a bit lethargic today. Did read it might just be the progesterone.. Promised myself not to do any hpt, coz I'm a serial overthinker. Hehe.. Just praying and hoping for the best.

Salam sis,
CD12. Perhaps you're ovulating? I personally get cramps around ovulation period. You could check and get busy BD'ing. :)

As salaam alaikum ladies. Eidul Adha Mubarak :)

I had my FET done at KKH last week and am on Crinone progesterone gel inserts. My blood test is next Wed but today I started bleeding. It’s been about 10 days after FET.
Not sure if I should still continue with progesterone inserts. Can’t call the clinic coz it’s public holiday today.

A little bit sad if this means FET didn’t work. Still hopeful but am preparing for the worst...

May Allah bless us with what’s best for us, and for us to always be pleased with what He has written for us.

Salam sis. Eid Mubarak to you too. Please call them early morning tomorrow and continue your Crinone inserts. Please do not lose hope, coz I've heard of BFPs with bleeding which is why you must not stop the inserts. May Allah ease your affairs dear. I'll pray the best for you.

Assalamualaikum sisters. An update from me. I had my ER done on 20th july, ET on 25th July and my 2ww ended today. I went for my Beta this morning and alhamdulillah the nurse called to tell me that I am pregnant. I will be heading back to KKH later for some additional medication. A long journey it has been from my first appt at KKH in Sep 2017 and alhamdulillah the beginning of a new phase. It is early days I know, I seek your prayers that I will go through this pregnancy with ease and I pray that all of you will get that BFP you're all waiting for insyaaAllah. Babydust to all!

Thank you @Niki Kitty & @Luxee! @Luxee, I'm a subsidised patient, but my case has been handled by Dr Liu Shuling ever since I was referred to Clinic D in 2018. Diff docs sometimes attended to me during appts but for important decisions and procedures ie; laparoscopy, hysteroscopy, ER & ET was done by her. Even my stims dosage was finalised by her. Two attending docs mentioned during stims review that I might have to go on frozen cycle for transfer but Dr Liu okayed my fresh transfer. I would personally recommend her.

I am very new here but trying to find ways and knowledge on conceiving. It has been close to 2-3 years ttc but each time, only to disappoint when little miss flow came by.
 
Assalamualaikum sisters! Today is my first day of stimulations. Both husband and myself are very excited to be on this journey.

We have been married for 8 years, 2 ectopic pregnancies (both fallopian tubes removed) that is why we need to go through the IVF process.

All the pre-checks seems ok (doc said I could have conceived naturally without a problem) but I am missing one of the most important reproduction organ.. haha..

Good luck to everybody, Insya'Allah urusan kami semua dipermudahkan. Amin!

Hi sis, I was reading all the threads, and saw that I’ll be on clomid cycle. How was your journey? I had the lowest dose in 2019 but it didn’t work, and the highest clomid dose some time this year in Feb, pun Tak work.

share with me your experience so I can also learn if it works out for u!

All da best sis!

I gave up on checking the ovulation kits. It’s too expensive! How did u keep up? I am 30 this year but trying to conceive about the same time as you, 2 years. Reading ur thread after chancing across this forum made me feel another wave of energy coming in since I read this thread, I made the effort to.. let’s do the deed man, cmon! Haha I took clomid under dr Loke.

how is dr Aziz? I was thinking of changing doctor even, as there is no result..

Oh i just buy ovulation kits from online, buy in a bulk - wayyy cheaper and works like clearblue!

I am already on the day of my period but tkde period lagi but tknk check, so just wait till 3 days past and check. I also mcm 50/50, cause it gets tiring sebab sikit je, eh pregnant ke? not good for mental health.

Dr Aziz, good! chop chop and all the other kakak kat sana friendly. I also dk if i should go for IVF since i’m WFH, so tk sangat pakai HL.

Abit conflicted.

Thanks dear. All the best to all of you in your TTC journey. Heartaches, heartbreaks, mood swings, emotional turmoils are just part and parcel of this journey that Allah has chosen for us. Just bear in mind that if it is meant for us, it will happen eventually insyaaAllah and if we are put in this position then surely we are strong enough to go through it.. Redha and tawakkal is very important. ❤❤❤

I almost wanted to give up. While the wait, i was not thinking about any symptoms and carry out with my daily routine sampai, i missed my period for 4 days. Went to check and alhamdulillah its a positive. I have never gotten a positive in the past 2 years and the feeling is very shocking. Alhamdulillah eventhough its in the early stages, i still wanna share with my perjuangan sisters.

Will be heading for a scan in the next two weeks! For those who are still in their TTC journey, insyaallah semua di permudahkan. Amin.
