Datuk Seri Siti Nurhaliza has often shared about her struggles with infertility, experiencing multiple failed in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) procedures over the years.
Siti, who finally welcomed her first child Siti Aafiyah after an 11-year wait in 2018 via IVF, is undergoing the procedure again for Baby No. 2.
This time round, Siti is capturing this incredibly personal journey on camera, bringing fans as well as viewers wanting to find out more about IVF along for the ride.
"It's basically the same process I went through with Aafiyah. But with her, I didn't feel like crying so much. I've been crying more this time," she says at the start of the 16 minute-long vlog uploaded on her YouTube channel on Jan 11, Siti's birthday.
The vlog documents her journey from implanting the embryo to finding out whether the procedure is successful.
A majority of the footage takes place in a fertility clinic. Viewers get to see her consultation sessions with her doctor and even a glimpse of the embryo implantation process.
A particularly daunting moment in the vlog arrived when Siti, who has just completed the procedure, began taking multiple at-home pregnancy tests.
Taken prematurely, the tests showed no signs of pregnancy initially. Only after a week, did the tests read positive, to Siti's excitement.
Siti confirmed she was pregnant with her second child on Dec 1.
