i got a call at 8.11am, kkivf called n inform me 2cum down 4et, i huh n confirmed 2times my name… i m here n looks like indeed there will be et…
i shake him a bit n told him kk called me 2go down immediately, i will go down alone, he wok up and said he wans 2cum with me n bounce out of bed immediately… he is not well, down with block nose, poor baby.
indeed there were 2embryo at morula stage. dr tan hh looks happy n said good news we can trf 2, but to me i m still worried. my results r really bad, we juz need 1 to suceed n hav a healthy baby! i think we din look 2happy, dr tan keep sayin dun worry. today’s trf is not as smooth as é previous time, he had a hard time placin é right locatñ, n i think it’s coz é nurse is not too familar with é scanning n din exert é right pressure accordingly… dr tan had 2strech out his hand 2position é handheld device to get é scan right b4 he manage 2do the transfer…
results of fresh ivf #2 @kkivf with dr thh
total 13 eggs retrieved n all mature eggs
8 successfully fertilised via icsi
4 embryos at different number of cells stage at d2, but show bi-nucleauity, not suitable for transfer, kept for culture n observation
2 morula stage embryos et d4 5apr, no grading, both look normal, no significant fragmentation, no need for assisting laser hatching
basically é embryologist said bi-nucleauity is not normal, but it can be part of é process when é cells r dividing. so since é embryo can progress 2morula stage dr thh will juz trf n try our best… é embryologist said one is better, but i dun rem which one..
hope my new job starts well on mon n a healthy baby in 9mths!
i read more abit bi-nucleauity n realise it cause a even lower pregnancy rate… no matter wat i still think our 2embees r fighters! they work their way to d4 with not much fragments! if they are meant 2b our babies, we hope they will fight 2é end n be our healthy babies… i made a wish 2my god on fri night, if these embryos are meant to be our babies, please let them fight hard, be healthy n be in our arms!
i also wan 2giv him a big hug n kiss, he hates wakin up early but never fail 2rise or bounce n shine if i m due 2go kk for anythg… how sweet is that, i m quite independent 2do my own inserts n rem instructions 4med, but he never fail 2remind me abt thgs he knows.. like é inserts..
