My IVF Treatment Update & A 2nd Wave of Coronavirus in Hong Kong
Good. Morning guys I hope you're doing well I am, in, a little bit of pain I can't, move my neck pretty, much I decided. To make this tik-tok yesterday, where I fall on the bed and change outfits, and I. Got a bit of whiplash on the way down and, on the way back each, time I, have, really been enjoying making. Tic TOCs I feel like there's not as much judgment you can be very silly and goofy and, I really been enjoying that side of things. This. Is gonna be my very first tik tok video how. Will this come in with a bang I'm gonna try this this. Had a handstand, one on the wall I don't. Even, know if I've been doing it I don't even know if I tried to do a handstand I can't do a cartwheel I was always the kid that couldn't do it when all my friends were doing cool things on the grass so. That's. My time to make up for that and shine with some head stance handstands. Not. My head my hand. Thank. You what. If I put my, pants, on my head and then my sweater. On my, I. Know. How I can attach it. Anyways. I have. Been having a lot of fun with tik-tok I have, to say it's destroyed, my attention. Span that's, why I haven't been so active on YouTube lately I haven't been watching much youtube I think it's because my. Days. Are, quite. My. Days are quite repetitive I spend a lot of time at home it's quite relaxing in, general. So. I don't, tend to watch long, slower, relaxing. Things I need something, very fast and tick, tock it has been that thing so I've been making a lot of tick tock videos shorter. Instagram, videos and that's. Just what I've been enjoying, doing I'm actually about to make another tick tock video helps I have this idea in my head that I want to try so, maybe I'll just show you a little behind-the-scenes. Thing, on how I make, it so I think this vlog is gonna be a daily vlog of sort. Of updates, I'm going to give you an update on my IVF, treatment, and an update, of where Hong Kong's, coronavirus. Wise and, that. Sort of thing we're gonna go out I'm going to show you around Hong Kong - we're gonna get it out of the house and that's, his the Blackbird tick tock all you really need is your phone and nothing else and that's pretty much what I used at the beginning you can lean your phone against something but, if you want things to get a little bit easier and more, convenient, and better lighting you can buy this tripod, say you'll need a stand, and this, attachment, comes all together this, is where you can place your phone it can go forward or backwards, and then, you have this light that you can adjust the brightness and, the warmness or coolness it's able to bend down like this so you can do overhead, shots for. Cooking and stuff like that, DIYs. So, it's just really really, handy, so I'm trying to make a tiny toast, for this one so I'm gonna to make a, ten, per minute a. Tiny. Spatula. Out of tinfoil. All, right oh my ingredients and tools are in place, I. Got. My song and then, you can just go to timer then you can move that to where you want to stop recording so you can record in sessions so I'm just gonna set this up here and. Then. Once you click that it will start the countdown it will give you three seconds before you start. Done, post it now it's time to, actually. Eat, this bread with the leftover, pieces, I've sliced off I've been really into toasted tomato sandwiches, lately basically, it's toast, mayonnaise, like, fresh sweet crisp, tomatoes, whenever they're good and, in season I always love to make this and then a little bit of salt and pepper whatever, seasoning, you want but basically it's bread and mayo and tomatoes and it is so good I always, crave them once in a while it reminds me of my childhood it, reminds me of home, that, is what I'm making now for breakfast I have, a for breakfast that's good for lunch I have a first snack whenever really I'm, using this mayonnaise I found it in Hong Kong it's avocado, oil chickpeas.
Sugar. Water fava, beans protein, powder rosemary. Mustard. A, bunch, of other things but that's the essence of it and it really tastes like mayonnaise I'm pretty sure you can make this on your own but. It's delish. Hostess. Is one of the best things ever. You. Wanna. Dance with me. Makeup. Tutorial time. I've. Already, got my foundation, on you. Know you can tell my, eyebrows done and I'm. Gonna do a, purple. Makeup, look so whenever I do do, my makeup lately I often. Like to go for something I normally wouldn't where I find makeup, to be very therapeutic right now I like to paint my face try, new things just. Like I like doing with cooking Liana I just like trying new things and being, creative and. Taking. Longer at everything I do because it occupies more of my time so I'm gonna do a purple makeup look because I did this once before and I actually filmed, the makeup tutorial, and, then I didn't like the way the rest of the book turned out so I just scrapped it all so. I'm gonna do it again because I posted some photos and a lot of you asked me to do, this makeup tutorial so basically, you're gonna start with your eyelid. Base and then I'm gonna go in with a medium, light purple I'm mixing this color princess. With, this. Purple. Here. From my morphe palette and, that is gonna go over it on my eyelid. And. I'm also gonna put some of my lower eyelid. Then. Taking this deep purple color called violence we're gonna pack. That into our crease, alright, so I'm gonna give you guys a little update on my IVF, treatment, now because some of you were asking me about it and some, of you don't really understand, what IVF. Is, so. I'm not gonna go into too much detail, about that but you can research, it yourself, in general, it just means the egg is fertilized, outside of, the body and then put back in so there's different forms of IVF you can try the, two that I am aware of I'm not sure if there is more there probably, is is natural IVF and HC with the X that we retrieved we opted for half. And half half XE, half natural, IVF, so, I had, my egg retrieval, surgery, last, month and it. Went well they got 29, eggs which is quite a lot but you don't end up with 29. Eggs after being fertilized, the eggs will multiply, in cells from, one to two to four to eight and so on and they grow them for you until day five or six around and on that day they will freeze them until it's time to implant, them back into you not all eggs will survive this process, for, whatever reason, some don't start, multiplying some, multiply, and then they stop some basically.
Not All turn into an embryo in the end we only had a good, eggs that we were able to freeze on day six so it goes down quite a bit and they update you every day on how it's going and graze the eggs so it's quite a. Interesting. Process, to receive those messages and, it's like your babies I don't know it's weird, again. I'll go into it more later. But. Yeah we have eight good eggs that are frozen now and so I need, to wait until my second period my first period came and then on my second, period I'm able to start the medications, the, injections. Again and those will take place for ten days to prepare my uterus and then the implantation, will occur so, I have about a month and a half break, of nothing going on no injections, no no. Medication. Right I want to add some sparkles, to this look so I'm gonna use my wake. Wake wake make. There's. One that's upside down so I don't know if I'm supposed to read it like make. Or wake really, like this applicator, and this one has big, and small, glitters, inside, so. It just looks really pretty, it was recommended to, me by my friend sunny day. And I'm, obsessed, sometimes. I like to put it just in the corners of my eyes sometimes. I like to put it all over today. Is one of those all-over, kind of days but. Yeah so I am. On a break, right now my body isn't really going through anything at the moment I've been skipping a lot because it's my favorite form of exercise, especially right now because my gym is closed and some. Of you guys were wondering why the heck I'm skipping and saying like, aren't. You maybe. You think I am pregnant, or you think it's bad for trying to get pregnant I don't know but. Nothing. Is going on right now and, when. I do, get the implantation, I will not be skipping because, it. Just, isn't a good idea my doctor told me not to then but. During. Pregnancy, you are allowed, to exercise on, woman even run marathons, everyone. Is different it depends on your. Specific pregnancy. It depends on your body and your habits before your pregnancy you're, not going to start anything new and crazy to stress your body but if you are already doing it and your body is used to it and it makes your body feel good then, it is something that you, could maybe do you of course need to consult your doctor and I will be consulting mine through the whole way so while I do appreciate your, concerns, and your advice please, know that. Not. Everything may be applicable, to me in my situation. I'm. Gonna take this same dark purple, violence color and, just line my lower, eyelid, I think, this is gonna be the last update I give you for a while because it's. Still, an only 50% chance, of working. It, may. Work it may not work or it may work and then suddenly it it doesn't continue. To attach and it doesn't work or the, chances of miscarriage are higher in the first trimester, so.
That's, Why a lot of people don't tell, you they're pregnant until three months when everything is more stable, you're gonna go in with a beige liner, on my waterline so I think I will keep things to myself for. Now and I know I've been talking about it so it's like white my suddenly, stopped, but. Because so much can happen, and I will be dealing with my own emotions and, figuring out what to do each time I think, it's best I just leave, it until. All. Right now a little bit of bronzer and using effective beauty. You. Need a sudden, but. Overall I think started this you'll hear the shower in the back girl my husband showering now, overall. I have to say this whole experience has been. Not. As bad as I expected I was really scared about it I thought, it, would completely change me. I know, everyone, is different and reacts to hormones. Differently, depending on what they're taking and how it affects their personal, body but. It's. Yeah it just wasn't as bad as I thought where, I really, felt them was after the surgery I had a good cry after, I came out of the egg retrieval I, was crying. To my doctor as soon as she came in I was like thank you so much, you're. Just so kind with, me and I forget. What I said but I she, was just like. Come. It's gonna be okay and, then one day when Tom made, me breakfast, I started crying it, was you just put some strawberries into a yogurt cup but I just felt I. Don't. Know I've just been really emotional it was a really cute gesture but I've just been really extra I was just really extra motional, as I was coming down. That's. The only thing I really, noticed but overall like meals and stuff it's, more of a mental thing injecting, yourself once, you do it a couple of times you get used to it and it just wasn't as bad as I thought I think, right now because I feel hopeful, and it's something new I feel, ok but maybe if I have to do this several times I will start to feel defeated, and. Feel. A little bit differently we. Will see. I'm. Trying not to get my hopes up too too much, for. Blush I'm using the NARS one in orgasm. Jeffree, star platinum, ice in ice, cold I'm gonna mix in a bit of the lavender snow. Just. To have a little purple, flare to it we, are stepping out today I, got. To take Rosie to her checkup appointment, at the vet and then, to grab some groceries I also want to find a bamboo steamer, because. Steamed veggies taste so much better in that rather than a metal, one and I. Also want to try making dim sum we're also gonna go out for a lunch it's. Just gonna be a. Really. Busy fun exciting day the weather here is really nice and warm I feel, all dolled up I'm, gonna get all dressed up pillow talk lip liner. And. I'm gonna use gloss today on my lips well this is sort of its Charlotte Tilbury these lip, lustre, is sort of halfway between a matte lipstick, and a gloss but, a bit, more on the glossy, side which. Is a nice transition because, I love matte lipsticks and that's what I've been wearing every, day I haven't worn a gloss in so long but. I really like the way this one looks and, I'm. Kind of happy that gloss is having a comeback. Yeah. See, it's like a nice subtle gloss my, whole look is very late. 90s, early 2000. Sits like when I was growing up I my. First makeup, product I used was a purple, shimmery eyeshadow, I've, got lip gloss on I actually pulled out my bell-bottoms. Which. I haven't worn since then and, I'm. Gonna wear a bucket hat too so it's very 90s, early 2000s. All around today ultra, rest I'm going this really cute bucket hat that has lemons, on the inside I guess it could be reversible, too the bell bottoms, are back. Hurt. Them with my compressed shoes. All. Right so. In. Hong Kong we are able to go out we're not in lockdown, we're not having, to do quarantine, we've actually never been in lockdown or, forced to, do porn ever when. The virus broke oh it was back in when, did we have our first big break out, a.
Little. January. Yeah the. People automatically. Started to take precautions, we're a mass stay home as much as possible schools, were canceled pretty much right away and. People. Move their offices to foam as much as they could and they've. Been doing that ever since so we kept it under good control and, because. Of that we've never had to go into lockdown but, then kind of recently we've had our second wave of hits but that wasn't because we opened up too early or, opened, up even though we're never closed but like people started to go out more it wasn't because I happened to earlier was because people. From Hong Kong that went. Abroad or study abroad or work abroad we're, coming back into Hong Kong from places like France or UK or America or anywhere and. They. Brought it back. There, wasn't many local, Clinton cases since then we've had very very few. But. Because of that and because of people going out we did go through a second round stricter, measures have, been put in place over time like bars were closed karaoke. And. Beauty. Salons, and, massage. Places. Were closed and, they're so close they were forced to close on April 10th, and they, were sent to reopen 14, days later but I think that just got extended in schools. As well I think the date now for us to fully open everything, is base Evans but, people can go out if they want to go out they can't gather in groups of more than four and, pretty. Much everything, besides the, places. I mentioned our open restaurants, are operating. At capacity of 50 percent so every other table basically, can be seated I guess in general people are staying home as much as possible and, that if they do need to go out and they wear masks. And, that's what I'm basically going doing - I think that go out an average of once per week to. Grab some whatever I need to grab and. Just, get some air and maybe eat a meal out. We. Just dropped off Rosie I got changed, our outgrow, Suri. It's just looking at this and then really creeping, shepherds tired I don't want to try and make it with this. That's. Not offered. Oh no, this is my weekend, those. Are my favorite, chips. Devour. This whole large bag and like five minutes, oh no you watch - oh. I. Can't stop. Hunger. Table but. Tom can eat like a few and he'll be fine I can't stop. Yeah. He demolished, this this is all that's left. All. Right guys I think that's gonna be it for today because all I'm gonna do is take a bath and. Watch. Something read, a bit and you go to bed, I just finished unorthodox. On Netflix, it was really good I don't, know what I'm gonna go, into next but, yeah I will see you guys very soon with, another video. Good. Night. You.
