Hi ladies, done my 2nd cycle fet on 15 oct. Currently day4 post transfer no symptom at all.. Not even cramping :( my first fet which was success experience some cramping in early day of post fet. This time I am transferring a partially expanded blastocyst. Will it affect my chances of getting pregnant? Did my egg retrieval in nuh, manage to freezer 3 blastocyst day 5 grade 2. Does anyone know what grade 2 means? Hoping for my rainbow baby this time.

For my case, my doc advised to transfer 2 embryos previously and upcoming FET. I had failed 1 fresh and 1 FET so doc said higher chance if I put in 2 embryos.

Thanks for sharing! Was it a successful transfer with the 2 embryos?
My first FET w 2 embryos was in Mar 2020. I got positive results during my BT but it was a borderline pregnancy, hgc didn't increase after a week so it was a failure. Both embryos are day 6, grade C. Dr said not high chance. My previous two transfers were negative results. At least there is a improvement for this transfer.

Am going for another round of FET frm my 2nd ivf cycle in Nov. Dr advised to transfer 2 embryos (both day 6 blastocysts, grade B) as I had unexplained failure previously. Am abit worry because I am underweight so not sure if I can carry twins for 9 mths.

What abt u?

Did u request for 2 embryos or was it advised by the doctor?

If u don't mind can u also share the reasons? Thanks!
I failed 2 iuis previously and had been trying for years so doctor suggested 2 embryos to increase chances. Still failed 2 ivf transfers before getting twins in my last transfer.

To be honest caring twins is not easy. Double everything including load you carry. So be mentally prepared. Had a friend who had twins and very petite who delivered very much earlier.

I'm gg for my first frozen cycle this month and doctor's advise is to proceed with 1 first as its our first and we are still young but I'm already turning 37, doesn't feel young at all

Feeling abit anxious and feel like wanna try for 2 embryos at once so there's a higher chance, but it will be against doctor's advise and we are also thinking maybe we should try 1 child via ivf and another we should at least still try naturally.

Quite dilemma now.

Mentally and financially must be ready to welcome twins. Sigh. Higher chance of premature babies too. We hope to have 2 babies and is not easy for me to get pregnant, went thru 2 ivf cycles and 2 IUIs.

What makes u decide to put in 2 embryos besides Dr's advice?

Congratulations on ur twins!

So u did 2 iuis and 2 ivfs before u succeeded on ur 3rd ivf?

Do u have twin genes in ur family? Just wondering for ladies who transfer 1 embryo and got twins, is it due to genetic or it happens for ivf.


Don't mind if I ask how old are u?

My dr always recommend to transfer one only as the potential risks and complications of multiple pregnancies cannot be underestimated.

Of cos, us being us, eager for success after waiting for so long, will always ask about transferring 2. But my dr always say he only recommend to transfer one.

Hi, can I ask how many embryos did u get from ur ivf cycles? Do u have any known conditions or unexplained and if u don't mind sharing ur age?

Oh no no. Paiseh paiseh.. I have yet to get BFP, am just saying I have been TTC for 4 years and not easy to get pregnant so I think higher chances if I put in 2 embryos, that's what the doc said too.

I have 3 day 6 blastocysts, grade B frm my 2nd cycle. Dr advised to put in 2 blastocysts. My FET is next mth so I am still considering.

No issue w me. Only my husband low sperm count and sperm mobility. I am 35 this year.

I have 3 6 days blastocysts, grade B and hatching. What abt you?

I just went with doctor’s suggestion esp since I have failed 2 transfers previously. I didn’t really think that both will implant. In my mind, I was thinking if one implants I would be more than glad.

Succeeded in my third transfer from second stimm cycle. Nope, no twin genes in the family. Maybe distant, yes on husband’s side but I doubt it affects. 34 when I did my transfer.

Both of us okay also generally just that I had high tsh but normalised already and just removed a small polyp.

36 turning 37.

I have 4 blasts, I think 2 day 5 and 2 day 6. 1 grade B and 1C. Not sure about the hatching part.

Was told by my Dr the grade difference is negligible, but day 5 or 6 does make a difference.

Thanks for sharing!

I have read some ladies with only 1 embryo transfer but split to twins, not sure if that happens all the time or only if its in our genes.
 
Hi Ladies, would like to ask if u all did one or two embryos transfers and why? And if its 2 embryos is it considered 1 cycle?
Generally, private will recommend 1 embryo, but public hospitals are more open with 2 embryos. There’s chance of multiple births, in case 2 embryos further split into 4, in which private hospitals don’t have the facility to handle possible risks and complications.

It’s considered 1 cycle.

Are you still in 2ww?

No leh, my period came already and going to start my FET this month, going for my first scan next Monday.

Its going to be a natural FET, hope it will be smooth and I won't miss the window or something.

I'm with KKH but my doctor also advised 1 embryo first given its our first and according to him we are still young but I don't think so

Feel like time is running out.

How's ur first cycle coming along?

I am under SGH and my friend also recommended to transfer 2 too. I guess depends on the hospital?

I just did my follow up today and I’m on track for FET next week. In on medicated, and responding to medication, also getting the side effects with water retention, bloatedness and lethargic.

You can discuss with your doctor again should you wish to insist on transferring 2 embryos. Make conscious and logical decision, don’t be affected by the fear of advancing age or lack of time. And never look back once decided, regardless of the future outcome.

Ya very subjective. After all, it’s no one size fits all. During our pre IVF counseling, we’re advised to consider 1 embryo transfer to avoid possible risks and complications. We’re also reminded the possible social issue ie. emotional and financial, resulted from multiple births. Of course, there’s joy too. End day, we make our own decision but it’s the consultant’s responsibility to remind us the pros and cons.

What kind of medication do u have to take for medicated cycle? Like what kind of response perse when u say responding well to meds?

Yea loh.. so will think about it carefully.

Just thinking if 4 days late is considered irregular cycle and need to go on medicated or irregular refers to some months no period?

Good luck for ur first cycle!

Agree. Plus the desire of having twin, a girl and a boy, that everything seems so perfect . Is this your first IVF cycle?

Thank you. I’m on progynova and oestrogel, to assist in building lining. The thickness of lining is the indicative factor. Just like during stimulation, the quantity and size of eggs are the indicators.

Will doctor supplement you with medications? Perhaps you can ask doctors if you’re considered irregular due to 4 days delay. But I think that shouldn’t be an issue as your last cycle was due to polyp removal.

I asked the nurse she say no need medication. I did asked the doctor when we met him for consult post my polyp removal he said 3 to 5 days not considered irregular so hopefully I won't miss the cycle!

I don’t think you’ll miss it. Doctor should be able to monitor your progress, estimate your ovulation day and perform transfer 5 days from O day if you’re transferring D5 blast.

Do focus in eating well to build your lining naturally since you’re not on medicine.

Hi, I’m currently on my FET and having a follow up scan on CD13. But I’m feeling so unwell now that I think I can’t make it for the scan. Anyone had similar encounter and what if I missed the scan later, will the cycle be canceled?

Thanks for the assurance! So the transfer is supposed to be 5 days after I tested ovulation?

Hi dear! Are your symptoms URTI related? (Eg cough, flu, fever, sore throat, breathless) if so, they might cancel it first. They would advice you to be fit before transferring the lil ones into you as falling sick might cause infections. U are allow to take Panadol or some Vit C to boost ur immune.

Yes. Hence Day 5 blast transfer usually happens on CD21 +/-. I have been taking folic acid and I started pre pregnancy milk last week. You can google for the benefits and decide.
Okay thanks! I think I have 2 day 5 and 2 day 6 but likely doctor will go with day 5 first I supposed.

I'm on folic for about 2 years already, thanks for Google the pre pregnancy milk.
