I'm due for hCG test on monday, D18. My friend encouraged me to test on D14 which was yesterday. I did. And its BFN ~!! I'm depressed and told her I'm not going to test again till hCG on Mon which is much more accurate than hpt ~ .. I really had a good 2WW, no cramps, no pain, no implantation stain & even the soreness in my breasts has disappeared since early this week. Oh well, I read that some girls do not experience implantation stains but can get pregnant nonetheless .. but I'm still hoping for that little brownish stain which has not appeared. I'm heading back to work on 27 Oct ..
does any of you girls experience soreness in your breasts during 2WW or later part of puregon? I think I started having that a day or two before ER ~
hi babymoo, i'm like liliankoh, also seeing sf loh from kk ~ such a nice and funny dr despite his heavily-packed schedule .. but he's going Thomson Medical Center .. which I'm not at all impressed with .. (i used to see dr WK Tan) .. and not forgetting the ivf blunder they had last year ..
Hi liliankoh, only 2 more than 10mm?? did the dr increase your puregon? how much are you taking? I was on only 150units throughout cause I am PCO and they scared I will have OHSS. In the end, out of 26 follicles, only 6 were retrieved. I was so upset. If yours aint growing fast enough, do email dr loh and ask for his opinion. My girlfriend consulted dr loh and he doubled her last few puregon (she is also PCO) .. she had 24 eggs retrieved, 15 successfully fertilized. I regretted not going to dr loh or maybe perhaps I might have more follicles retrieved. So, do email him if you think you need a 2nd opinion. I find kk ivf doctors too conservative. But of course there are girls who have only 2 eggs retrieved and they got pregnant. In my layman thinking, I just want more picked up after all the jabs I've been through ~ just so i will have more for frozen cycles if my fresh cycle is unsuccessful .. But thank God, 4 out of 6 are good. Now I can only hope the 2 inside me are good too ..
I'm going to be there 9plus .. and i hate monday mornings .. its always so packed. Hope good results for you and me tomorrow!!
Anyone tried seeing Matthew Lau from Kandang Kerbau Hospital IVF centre?
Wanna do my frozen cycle but my Gynae Kelly, has gone for private practise.
Marianne is also leaving at end of yr.
In Kandang Kerbau Hospital, it seems that there is only 1 lady Dr and she is so busy... 1st apt can be as late as in a mths time.
Pls revert comments on any other Dr, anxious..
I went a day earlier for my hCG & my beta was a miserable 1.2 .. failed my fresh cycle & will arrange with Dr Loh for ET of my frozen embryos asap .. So sad ..

I was there at 9plus and i think i saw you! didnt had a closer look cause you only walked past my seat as your name was called. You went into room 3 right? I remembered your styrofoam box !! I came & left in 15mins. I was also in black and dark blue denim skirt, short hair with a black longchamp.
I had scans daily for 3days in a row if I remembered correctly. Then on 3rd scan they decided i was ready and arranged for the night jab.
I was mentally prepared so I'm doing fine. My hubby was more affected. He heartpain the procedures I had to go through and was so sad this whole afternoon. I'm waiting for my AF and will be seeing dr loh this sat morning.
While I want to have my FET asap, I'm also considering going for cycle2 jabs without FET. Cost is my main concern. If I go for FET and fail, then I will have to go Thomson Medical Center for IVF and there is no government subsidy, meaning I have to fork out about $6K in cash ~ .. even with this, the time is also very tight .. if I take prolonged jabs, then I'm probably going to miss dr loh also .. how I wish he aint leaving so soon ... I'm now in a delimma. and my hubby dont really want me to go through another cycle again he said he heart pain for me. So sweet ~
beta reading is the most accurate in determining if one is pregnant or not. Once pregnancy happens, hCG will be released into our blood stream and doubles every day/other day. I guess i would need to have a beta reading of about 100? at least~ .. sigh .. and I was hoping for twins .. I can only hope my next attempt will be a successful one.
Didn't worry...given anaesthesia where cause slept (unconscious)..egg collection process only take 20min+rest in bed 1hr. But the painful part was needle on hand vein.
After the procedures.. I felt discomfort on vaginal & slightly bleeding..
13 eggs! I'm so envious .. hope most of them get fertilized successfully!! all the best to you. Rest well.
