Hi, my name is Valerie. I got married at 29 years old and my husband and I started trying a couple of years later, thinking that it’d be relatively easy to conceive. However, we were proven wrong when I found out that I had multiple fibroids, blocked tubes and ovulation problems. I underwent a myomectomy and took a break for about 6 to 9 months before actively trying again. After going through multiple assessments and considerations, we embarked on our first IVF journey in 2021. The first cycle yielded 3 blastocysts and we transferred 1 blast. Unfortunately, that did not work out. We decided to embark on another retrieval to yield more eggs as we were only left with 2 blastocycsts and we wanted more blasts before I turned 35. I started to make some lifestyle changes to prepare for the second FET as well. I also did acupuncture and intralipids to increase my chances of success. With God’s grace, Dr Thong’s help and family support, we managed to succeed on our second FET! I am now pregnant with a baby boy, and we are looking forward to his arrival soon in April! To those who are TTC, don’t give up the faith. Baby dust to all! 😊
