Today is a good day, Alhamdullilah, after 29 days of *GnRHa Injection aka Lucrin shots just got a call from the clinic that I’ll be starting my **Gonadotrophin Injection this Friday, that would mean if everything goes well Insyaallah, in less than 2 weeks, I’ll be starting the MAJOR part of the whole program. Butterflies in my stomach just by mentioning it :S
Mum and sis accompanied me to the appointment this morning, love them! So right after, we decided to go to Geylang. Mum wanted to get some blouse just because we’re going on a trip to Malacca next weekend! Woohooo! (don’t we ladies love to go everywhere be it on a holiday, weddings or reunions and have the excuse to buy new blouse, dress, shoes or bags just for it?! ;D)
Finally this year we manage to get the whole family + my Aunt aka mum’s BFF on a holiday! Honestly, for the last few weeks as I’ve been feeling kinda shitty and really down, I even thought of canceling the whole trip! Thank God I didn’t, realizing it now that it would really help me to be prepared for my upcoming surgery. Ok enough talk about it for now, will definitely update as it progresses later.
As you might already notice it, I love taking pictures wherever I go. Most of the time, people around me and the places I’ve been. Even if it means just by going to the market, have lunch or dinner. Honestly I love taking pictures of myself too but I never ever trust people taking a picture of me! Ok I know I am a lunatic sometimes! I always believe they don’t know ‘my angle’ hahaha…creepy right? So these are some of the shots I have today. I LOVEEEEE my iPhone apps!
Foodporn is a must!
Sis & Mum, what will I do without them….:D
Besides chendol whenever you go to Geylang, putu piring is a must too okay!
What better way to quench the thirst with calamansi drink! Slurp!
By this time, decided to feel nostalgic arh konon :P…. You’ll see what I mean with the rest of the pictures.
Shop till you drop AKA helping the economy.
Best place to get your sewing needs….I still don’t have that sewing mojo in me lah! Heh!
By this time, I am tired of waiting and obviously bored, so decided to take picture of my feet…ahem ahem…my bag too lah 😛
Ok that’s it, gotta rest my aching fingers now, till the next entry, if I feel like it.

“Controlled Ovarian Hyperstimulation and Monitoring
a. *GnRHa Injection
GnRHa treatment is given daily to prevent a spontaneous ovulation and to ensure that the ovarian follicles grow in synchronous fashion. It usually starts in the second half of your menstrual cycle and continues for about 14 to 20 days. Some patients may need to take this medication for longer periods.
Blood tests and ultrasound scans will be done to ensure that the optimum response is reached. Once this is achieved, you will proceed to the gonadotrophin injections.
b. **Gonadotrophin Injection
Gonadotrophin is injected daily into the muscle/subcutaneous tissue of your thigh or buttock to stimulate the growth of the follicles in the ovaries. After several days of gonadotrophin injections, an ultrasound scan is performed to determine the number and size of the growing follicles. You will need additional injections if the follicles have not reached the desired size.”
