Also, the embies have to be able to have enough energy within themselves to keep growing, which is another reason why some arrest at day three whereas the 'stronger' ones have the energy to keep dividing and growing, and this energy comes from the egg
Hi everybody, just home from our holiday and very refreshed.
So much has happened I won't even try to catch up.
Sorry to see it's a BFN Leyshoja! I would grow them out to day 5 for all the reasons the ladies have mentioned with an added reason, the embryo switches on it's own genome after day 3 (I think at day 4) so that's where embryos with complex chromosomal abnormalities can be weeded out. However those with only simple chromosomal abnormalities can still slip through and look like great day 5 hatchers as a few of us have learned the hard way.
Welcome back Fudge and good luck for this upcoming stim cycle. It's good to have a BH break sometimes. I would not worry about having frostie envy. I'm awaiting a FET and feel very apprehensive as opposed to a stim cycle where I often feel I have a clean slate and lots of possibility. Grass is always greener hey. And I second the yoga thing. We did plenty of yoga at Byron and it certainly is good for the headspace.
Anyone heard from Butterfly? How did that FET go? Have scrolled quickly through the last several pages and have not seen an update.
Good luck with your FET Luckyme, when is it likely to happen?
Probably transfer on the 22nd if I ovulate on cd13
This test is doing my head in. It's rattling and if you look close there is the tiniest dot where the second line would start. Could be a dodgy test. What on earth is in there that would rattle anyway ??ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1425811808.626341.jpg
Ok I've performed surgery on it and this is it ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1425812084.648144.jpg the dot was a bit of that broken tablet thingy stuck to it. Whyyyyyy torture me like this FRER ??? Another BFN
Reckon it's broken if it's rattling.
My experience with FRER's is I got a very clear positive with a hcg of 10 max, the next day by blood test it was 2. So if there's hcg there, that test will pick it up. Even though they are supposed to pick up 25. Can you possibly wait til the morning and do another one? Understand how frustrating this is.
