    Thanks dragontail. There are times I feel very very down and times I feel very positive. I keep talking to bubbsicle to grow healthy and let us hear him/her in our next visit.

    I heard some can only hear at 8 weeks plus too so we take comfort in that. we can see the embryo and gynae said it has grown within this 1 week. So I guess now is to pray and be positive!

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Hi ladies, have been following this thread for awhile and would love to join in if you dont't mind. You gals are such a supportive group.

    A little bit about myself, hubby and I are 34 and 32 respectively and have been trying to concieve-ing for 8 months with no success. Did a natural iui (without meds) on Valentines day (romantic i know...) and right now in my two week wait and hoping for the best.

    Hope everyone is having a good day!

    Mxlo, be positive and dont't worry too much and dont't read too much into the Google findings

    Will just freak you out and add on to your stress.

    Lie down more, walk slowly and relax

    Is it ok if we dont use govt grant for iui? Coz worse come to worse hve to use it for ivf...

    Hi maq I got this info from Hey ♥ Baby - Medisave for Assisted Conception Procedures

    <<Medisave For Assisted Conception Procedures (ACP)
    Achieving pregnancy is not always easy, especially as you get older. Assisted Conception Procedures (ACP) such as Assisted Reproduction Technology (ART) treatment can help couples who have difficulty conceiving.
    To help couples better afford the cost of ACP treatments, they can withdraw from their Medisave, up to $6,000, $5,000 and $4,000 for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd withdrawals respectively. They can use it for treatments such as in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) and intra-uterine insemination (IUI).
    Success rates of assisted conception procedures are likely to fall with age. Couples are advised not to delay child bearing and to seek treatment early if they have difficulties conceiving. >>

    This is what I have done so far:
    -went to polyclinic to get referral to Kandang Kerbau Hospital (in order to get subsidy)
    -went Kandang Kerbau Hospital to get the blood test for cd2 & cd21 done
    -done hsg test
    -did a retest for my hub SA test
    -going to do my ultrasound pelvis tomorrow followed by visit to the doctor to review all the test results.

    cos my hub first round of SA test came back with terratoozoospermia, if the retest come back with the same results, then most likely the dr will proposed iui.
    if my results also cmi, then most likely will be ivf

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Hi soursop!

    I did my iui at my gynae in thomson medical. My husband's SA also came back with terratoozoospermia. We were planning on doing iui regardless of the test results though. Gynae said not to waste the washed sperm so might as well just do it since we have been trying for awhile with no success.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    Yah I heard the same thing as poohy that people save the grants for ivf. My iui was pretty expensive though... I think with all the consults, blood test, SA test and subsequent progesterone pills it did go over $1000.

    Yup exactly! My hubby was totally for it. If he had to go in a cup he didn't want any of it to be wasted

    It was not painful so dont't worry about it. More uncomfortable, feels like a pap smear.

    Hi soursop...the jabs so far okay except that I couldnt sleep well at night and quite tired in day. Gets a bit too frustrated easily. .prob mood disorder from the hormones jab. Gonna endure.

    Hehe ivf is much more expensive than iui..the money from the injections goes by 3digits each time I buy. ..combine receipts is 4 digits. So pple save the grant for ivf.
