   Sa carmi sis and my doctor is dra. meguizo. she is actually my 3rd doctor since palipat lipat ako ng doctor. my 1st doc was dr. gergen lazaro then switched to dr. jing fernandez, kay dra fernandez i did almost all ng work up such as hystero, laparoscopy and we also did 7 iui na lahat ngafail  :'( then nireccomend si dr. meguizo and we did ivf and i was hoping mas mataas chances ko sa ivf since my right tube is patent and sabi sakin blastocyst lahat ng embryos ko pero i expected too much and too soon kaya masakit for me and i thought nga sa nababasa ko lang here na maiiyak ka pero once you have experienced na naging BFN iiyak ka talaga sobra :'( :'( :'(. At first nga sis kala ko tataas pa bhcg ko kasi yung first ko is 11.3 then sa second bhcg dun ko na naconfirm na hindi ako pregnant kasi bumaba sya ng 6.5.
   Sis juriel ask ko if do you still remember yung first bhcg mo mataas ba? Ang dami kong what ifs when i had my ivf, like hindi ko nakayanan mag bedpan kaya after an hour tumayo ako and washroom para magpee tapos sana kusa na lang ako nageat ng pineapple pero kasi ang advice naman ni dr sa akin huwag daw ako eat pineapple. Nacoconfuse tuloy ako if i should eat pineapple sa next transfer ko which we plan to have next year january. Kaya i decided to join na here sa girl talk dahil nabasa ko yung success story mo sa carmi and i am hoping to get good advices para tumaas yung chance ko for transfer next year.

^sis pasagot. pineapple core is fine pero yung juice or yung meat nun eh not that really. yung core yung matigas na part. saka in moderation lang. atleast 2lbs or half cup ng sliced core. ako din naman after ang transfer, i rested for an hour or hour and a half sa loob pa rin ng operating room, tiniis ko wag mag-pee, then i peed after ko tumayo. i took the 2ww easy especially the first week. BFP naman ako. had 3 failed iui's before. ang alam ko pag 3 failed iui automatic na ivf na yun eh. pero why ka naka-seven? waste of time and money yun. for me, yung ob ko na mismo nagsuggest na ivf na since 3 failed na and we just use the money para sa ivf.

   thanks for the advice sis prettynvain and i will try to ask my doctor again kung bakit ayaw nya ako pa eat ng pineapple. Hindi ko nga rin alam sis bakit umabot ako sa 7 na iui hoping lang siguro ako and doctor ko before na baka maging pregnant ako if we keep on pushing for iui. Suggest din nga nya before mag ivf na ko sa kanya pero yung mga time na ask nya ko wala pa kaming budget ni hubby so now lang kmi nagdecide mag ivf na. Sa carmi ka din ba nag ivf sis prettynvain?

   yes sis juriel i took crinone also pero 1x a day lang and sa gabi ko sya nilalagay because in the morning utrogestan ang gamit ko and progynova na 2 tabs and i think pcos din ako pero hindi na kami nag increase ng crinone and increase lang sa akin utrogestan on my 2nd week naging am and lunch na. i was wondering sis how were you able to know the grade of your embryos? ako i asked the embryologist sa carmi and he said that he could not grade it kasi wala daw grading sytem sa carmi all he answered was my embryos did great kaya umabot kami ng blastocyst stage and suppose to be ang transfer ko nga talaga is nov.4 pero tumawag si doc sa akin and said nov.5 na lang namin gawin transfer since nagdedevelop pa daw yung mga embryos ko sabi ng embryologist. kaya nga nung nabasa ko story mo sabi ko aask ko talaga mga questions ko and do you mind me asking sis kung ilang embryo ang pinatransfer mo and also why did you plan to stay sa hotel malayo ba yung house mo sis? sorry for my many questions sis i really wanted things to work the next time we do our transfer.

ako sis kasi si doc manalo ayaw nya na itake ang risk kaya ginawa na nyang twice a day ang crinone ko di ako nag utrogestran kasi msa maganda ang crinone direct na unlike sa tabs d ba daan pa sa dugo. ang mga tinake ko lang is metformin, aspirin and crinone and the usual folic acid and obimin, until 2 magpregnancy ako twice a day ng crinone, then nung nagpositive, pinatuloy pa rin ni doc [textspeak!] crinone, halos hanggang 3 months ako nakacrinone twice a day. plus nung nag positive na ako pinagtest nya ako ng apas, and i was positive kaya nakaheparin na ako, duvadilan 3x aday plus aspirin pa.

the grade of my embryo, tinanong namin bago trinasfer and it was only day 2 nga e, di n nila pinaabot ng blastocytes nung nag 4-cell na sya pinatransfer na agad. Actually ang nagharvest ng eggs ko si doc novero kasi umalis nun si doc manalo pero the day itself dumating kaya dalawa silang nandun. then the transfer, supervise ni doc novero si doc manalo kaya dalawa pa rin sila nandun. tapos after the transfer we want to ask the sperm count ni hubby alam kasi namn low sperm si hubby kaya itinanong namin and they gave us the summary of the embryo details and the sperm count ni hubby. kaya we have a pic pa ng embryo na trinansfer nila sa akin.

two embryo lang ang nag fertilize sa akin kaya yung 2 ang transfer, but isa lang din ang kumapit. kaya wala akong reserve embryos. 

hubby and i plan to stay at hotel kasi sa quezon city kami nakatira, ayaw lang namin matagtag talaga pagkatransfer kaya right after the transfer stay ako sa recovery room ng 2 hours saka lang ako tumayo and before the transfer nga pala nagpaaccupuncture ako, if you want before and after transfer yung accupuncture pero kung isang beses lang before ka magpaaccu para relax ang uterus mo kapag nagtransfer. tapos nung pauwi na kami nagwheelchair ako di talaga ako naglakad, the npagdating sa hotel, nagpahanda kami ng wheelchair hanggang sa room, ganun kami ka praning ni hubby na wag matagtag. there's no herm sa pagkamaingat laki rin kasi ng expenses natin diba. kaya lahat ng pag iingat ginawa na namin. wag mastress at sa hotel at least wala ka rin masyadong iintindihin at bedrest ka lang talaga. tapos si hubby minsan iniiwan nya ako sa room kapag bobored sya iiwan nya malapit lahat sa akin the water food, then mag gym sya. yun lang ganda rin kapag sa hotel kesa sa hospitel ng st. lukes.

   Iba iba talaga mga strategies ng mga ob-gyne natin that im sure na kaya hiyangan talaga sa ating mga sis. Utrogestan and progynova ko ginawa rin suppository sis juriel kaya direct na rin siguro and doc also asked me to take duvadilan yan parehas tayo 2x a day and yes aspirin and folic and lots of gatorade. nagaccupuncture din ako before and after pero masakita kasi si dr ancheta magtusok ng needles kaya siguro di ako na relax sa kanya mas sanay ako kay sis liu sa panay. sa qc ka pala sis ako sa san juan and umuwi talaga kami ni hubby pero siya nagdrive para dahan dahan daw at hindi matagtag although dati sabi nya maghospitel nga kami pero parang naging uneasy ako sa idea kasi iniisip ko hospital environment and baka mas hindi ako makarelax and makrest well kaya sabi ko uwi na lang kami since malapit lang naman. naisip ko nga un nung umiiyak na ko dapat nagwheelchair ako palabas hospital and naisip ko nga sa susunod na transfer ko magdiaper ako sis para dun na ko magpee sa bed. suwerte mo sis 2 pa doctors mo that time sa mga nababasa ko dito magaling nga daw at malaki success rate ni dr novero. thanks so much sis dami ako nalearn from you. gagayahin ko mga ginawa mo sa susunod natransfer ko. thank you so much talaga sis juriel and Godbless to you and your family :)

 
   Sis prettynvain tatanong ko nga uli sa doctor ko kung bakit ayaw niya ko pa-eat ng pineapple and parang gusto ko talaga gawin namageat kasi marami kayong nageat and naging positive naman ang results. layo pala ng mga pinaggawan ng mga procedures mo sis and im happy for you kasi lahat ng pinaghirapan at pinagdaanan mo naging positive naman ang result :)


   I am really happy that i joined this forum dami ko nalelearn sa mga sis dito and dami din support nakukuha dito :)  :)

^HK resident kasi ako sis.. kaya my iui's and katakot-takot na work-ups before eh dito lahat sa HK na super mahal.. yung sa Bangkok, si hubby nag-decide why there.. option lang namin dati is Taiwan and HK, tapos bigla niyang sinabi na "ok, we'll do it in Bangkok" so ako, ok sige i-research ko.. isang factor bakit sa Bangkok eh para malayo sa lahat at wala kaming stress totally. nag-enjoy naman kami sa almost two months na stay dun (kase got positive so sabi ni doc he'll let us go lang pag sure na everything's fine with my baby) at halos araw-araw na punta sa hospital.. kasi na-relax kami.. though once lang ako nakapag-massage, oks naman kasi maganda resulta.

Dati sa Singapore(Care) Sis pero failed :( tapos sumunod kong ivf dito na sa atin sa Philippines positive :) first try ivf ko kay doc P. :) tungkol naman sa pineapple core 1month ako kumain buy ka lang sa supermarket bilog na naka slice na kasama yung core sa gitna tapos nakaka 2 slices a day ako. Tapos before embryo transfer hindi na ako kumain ng pineapple. Pero sis ginawa ko lang yan bago mag ivf 2months ko hinanda katawan ko para sa ivf lahat ng bisyo inalis ko tapos lakas ko uminom ng tubig para ma wash out mga toxins at kailangan mo rin mag relax importante un lagi mo isipin na handa kna mag ka baby=) Syempre hindi mawawala ang Prayers.     

Good Luck mga sis

Hi mga sis,
Bakit kumakain ng pineapple core before ivf? Eto yung matigas na part sa middle no?
Mga friends ko naman always say do not drink pibeapple juice or eat pineapples pag ttc ka or preggy kasi it induces menstruation and cleansing kaya pati embryo mo if you are preggy i- eliminate niya.
I SUPER UBER LOVE GIRLTALK!

^actually it's better to eat before the egg retrieval until the first week of your 2ww. it helps in the implantation. the core itself ha, may contents kasi yun na maganda sa implantation. i didn't drank the pineapple juice.. i ate it. you can search the net sa benefits nito. and lahat ng ttc (especially those sa ibang bansa, they really recommend it)

Mga sis, when to eat the pineapple core, during the shot or after the embryo transfer na? And for ilan days?  I agree with the core, but i was told din before that the meat is not allowed after the transfer.  Thanks!

aubrey888, US based kami sis  :)

Thanks for the tips prettynvain and juriel02!

Congratulations on your BFP sis mazelan :)

Sisses, here is my update ----
Just had my egg retrieval friday, I was under anesthesia so I did not feel a thing, but i was sore for 2 days and had cramps after the retrieval.

I took Crinone for the first time Saturday morning, i felt constipated and nauseous that night and had chest pains when I woke up. The clinic advised me to go the the emergency room to have myself checked just to rule out a heart attack. I did not want to go the E.R. because the pain was still tolerable pa naman, but I was more concerned of the warning on the Crinone box about chest pains so I went there narin. Thankfully everything was all good, although I had to have a CT scan since I tested positive on the blood test for a possible blood clot, scary! I was concerned about radiation but the nurse assured me that this will not be a problem since they already harvested my eggs  :-\

Anyway, 8 eggs were harvested and 5 fertilized (through ICSI). No details yet about the quality but we are scheduled for a day 5 transfer on Wednesday!

Please pray for us! Goodluck din to all TTC sisses :)

^ my prayers with you sis miloo...
   Sis do you have APAS? And if you feel constipated pwede naman ikaw uminom ng prune juice. Kasi after retrieval constipated din ako and they allowed me na mag prune juice para mabawasanan ang constipation. Congrats at 5 na fertilized. Kami 6 harvested and 2 lang na fertilized kaya takot din kami nung sabi 2 lang kasi lahat transfer sa akin kung di ako positive back from start ulit kami nun. Prayers din. Everyday pray kami novena kay st. Pio.

@ sis cel_lim: ako after transfer kumain ng core for 5 days lang.
