I support your decision too. Unless you are looking at multiple kids, it just needs a damn golden embryo to make it.

How many kids are you looking at, by the way? LOL
Hey towkayneo! I want one more, but if God would give me 2 golden embryos, I would take all 3 kids! I love children muchie.....

I very gan chiong, called the clinic today to check on their progress. Seems like the 2 are still doing well. Hopefully by tomorrow, they will give me good news, tell me that my 2 babies are good for freezing. Really keeping my fingers crossed. Every step of the way is like some big battle liddat~~~

Thank you! Will try!

How about you? Trying for your number (4)?
Yeah! I think if I were to wait it out, i think my eggs will deplete soon. My initial plan was to head to BKK to do it cos they are receptive to gender selection, now that there are so many restrictions plus the fear of getting covid, KKH is the only way out.

Usually they will not call you on the status UNLESS 1. you call in and the embryologist will call you back 2. Make a trip down to KKIVF level 3 3. when you are waiting for ET and the embryos seem to disintegrate, then they will quickly ask you to go down for immediate ET.

So sorry to hear that Claire. Grieve for a while but not too long, and then prepare your body for the fresh cycle OK. Hugz

Actually I tried calling ivf centre to ask the status of embryo. They told me only doctor can reveal the status. Is tat true?

I will take no calls to get you to go down earlier as good news. I was told to expect a day 5 transfer and was called on day 2 and 3 for my 2nd and 3rd cycle before cos things were not looking good.

Yes, nurse had explicitly told me that they won't call to tell status of embryo development. It will be discussed only on transfer day by doctor.
When I was with KKH as a private patient, I also didn't get any info from nurses. They are very careful about these things. Even when I did speak to the embryologist (when they had to seek my permission to discard my embryos), it was very difficult to understand her. She spoke super fast, used a lot of technical terms which were quite hard to digest (given the speed of her speech LOL). I think they are operating under a lot of red tape, and also stress la... due to the workload.

With private the experience is much better. The clinic, I can see, always tries to accommodate the patient rather than the other way round. The embryologist called me the day after retrieval to tell me how many were fertilised. Very gentle and sensitive, given my tears and all. On day 3, Tan HH offered to let his embryologist speak to me, so that I could better understand the science behind his recommendations to let the few embryos I have go to day 5, and to freeze them. The embryologist was also quite good. Showed me the pictures of each embryo to explain how they graded each embryo. They really took time to secure my confidence.

I called them on Day 4 and Day 5 to check again, and they entertained me too. I think after this, must buy chocolates to treat the embryologist team LOL

Oh u are under Tan HH. I was under him previously and 2 successful cycles all under him. Too bad he moves on to private and due to finance constraints, I din follow him. But he is really a gd doctor. Very sensitive and nice. I hope miracle can happen for my this third fresh cycle.... Nurse called me to go down for transfer on sat.

Totally agree with you, I am with Dr Tan HH too and I think his embryologist team is awesome. They are very friendly and helpful in explaining to me when I ask a lot of questions. I was very impressed when I asked Pei Fen if I could keep my Embryoscope recording, she helped to whatsapp the video clip to me. I am doing FET in June.
 
Hello Aries, yes I did feel bloated. Not just that, but also sore boobs and mood swings. Don't be surprised if you feel physically not quite well, or just plain emo. There're a lot of hormones in your body, so be kind to yourself.

I find that it helps to rest as and when I feel tired. Drink lots of water. I found that drinking 100 Plus helped, for some strange reason. Whatever it is, listen to your body!
Hi sorry may I know what medicine the doctor prescribed to you that why you feel bloatness and sore boobs?

Hi sisters! When your start do injection ? Can we still do housework like moping floor , handwash squat do my laundry ?
hihi, i’m on the long protocol, will start my injection end Apr. I did ask doc if i can do jogging which he said to go ahead as long as i don’t run a marathon. Housework is medium intensity activity think it’s ok, after egg transfer maybe don’t do squat? put laundry in washing machine to wash. my TCM asks me to avoid activity that put strain on the abdomen area.

oh no.. did you do the hyfosy test to check fallopian tubes previously? How would you compare the pain?

For me i almost fainted from the hyfosy test afterwards.. have not done retrieval before, so getting mentally prepared
For me, hyfosy was more painful than retrieval. Had bad menses like cramps for around 1-2 hrs after hyfosy. Cramps after retrieval were mild for abt 4-5 hrs.

I transferred two early blastocysts today. Just wondering anyone suceed on early blastocyst? I only transferred expanded blastocyst b4...

Oh I didn't know early blast cannot freeze. Its a day what embryo?
I oso din know till yest. Is day 5. Embryologist told me both my early blastocyst half day behind the schedule of becoming a blastocyst. I'm not sure y cannot freeze but if nv put both then will just leave one outside for observation till it become a blastocyst then freeze. I tot just put both in hoping at least one will attach. Previously I failed when transferred a day 6 expanded blastocyst. So thinking putting both have higher chance. But Dr hopes it's not gg to be twins. She said she has alot of patients under her having twins... Doc always dun recommended twins due to complication...

My situation was quite similar to yours but I insisted transferring only 1 because I wasn't keen on taking the risk of twins and knowing my body will suffer if both stick.

Embryologist suggested putting in the other as well but after I decided against it, they tried to culture it for another night but the embryo didn't make it. So I had nothing left to freeze as well and my only hope was the 1 early blast that was transferred.

Good luck okay :)
