    I just don't understand how my friend had 7 embryos frozen on day 3 with Monash yet mine that we're all going well on day 5 could not be frozen as the embryologist said - The remaining embryos were starting to form blastocysts, but did not expand to the quality required for freezing. They need to have the proper structures within them in order for the freezing to be successful which would lead to a good thawing result in future.

    So of course my friends oe embies would not meet that criteria on day 3.

    It feels like a cruel joke.

    Thats brilliant @Caesardust. Fingers crossed you don't need it of course. Have they given you written confirmation of how many straws you have frozen?
    And as for the two on board being sh*te quality. I think not. They were classed 'AB' which is fantastic! Hopefully the grading '2' just means they're growing slow and steady. Nice and consistent.
    I think we need @Bongley to reassure you re her first DSs grading!
    Were you doing Pregnyl boosters?

    BIB hope your session went okay today better than last week's anyway. I'm glad your out of houso territory now you had me worried for a bit. I' ve seen your photos but they are a few months old and your hair looks amazing so I was thinking what's happened to make her let herself go this way ������
    Off topic but today I went to the GP to get my psych referral and the frucking doctor decides he wants to do my BMI I'm sitting there in my post ivf fat pants and thinking about food as I had to wait 1 and a half hours to get into him and he wants to do BMI. I was like "is that really necessary" for a frucking referral. Anyway I got on the scales which is a first for this year and even though I'm still fat I was pleasantly surprised as I thought I would have been fatter. I mean I havent lost weight but i haven't gained ether since lastt year... the doctor did not agree with me and was all like how can you be happy you're in the obese category woman and you need to do x,y and z. But you know sometimes it's the little things isn't it.
    Argh, I so get you hon. Pushing 93 kilos here, and no, I'm not happy about it. But neither am I in the right headspace to do anything about it. Pick your battles people!!!

    Yep...session went better than last week Luv but it still sucked anyway!!!

    Am emotionally drained as per but am looking forward to zoning out at 8.30pm watching The Real Housewh*res(wives) of Beverley Hills as I like to call them!!!

    Yep...it's the little things like not putting on weight (regardless of your BMI) when you've been eating like it's an Olympic event for months on end and you clearly expect to have put on 10 kg's when you step on the scale!!!!

    Oh my hair!!!! My regrowth was absolutely disgraceful Luv!!!! I really was starting to resemble "Shazza" from Houso's!!!!

    @Caesardust CFC are known for being really big into quality control when freezing embryos. This has come up before. As has comparing CFCs stringent freezing standards compared to Australian clinics. Small consolation hey. Humungous hugs, xxx.

    The "2" is just the expansion rate. I personally would be more concerned about the ICM/TE Grades of which yours @Caesardust were Graded AB...well it doesn't come much better than that Luv (only AA which I'd consider an A+) so I'd consider yours highly graded Luv IMO

    @Caesardust im so sorry thst you are sad about no frosties. Thats does very much suck because i know you would gave hoped so much for some.
    But you do have the 2 best embryos from the cycle transferred. So that is definitely a good thing.
    So, it would be 2 blasties out of 7 day fives, if i remember right? Thats almost half, so not super happy great but not too far below average of what you could expect. I know you would have wanted more. And maybe, better to not have poor quality embryos frozen and transferred over n over again. But i get that doesnt help to fix your diasappointment at the moment, so im sorry this happened xox

    @Tahli thanks for explaining. I wish I'd transferred 3 now though.

    @Caesardust so sorry you didn't get any frosties, that really makes the TWW even more intense.
    Yeah my son was from a grade two very early day 5 blastocyst. My FS described it as 'nothing special', thanks doc. Great memory Tahli!

    And they say they hardly ever get AA's from anyone. Which makes sense to me because its rare for any human body or part or cell or whatevs to be textbook perfect no matter who you are. The standards are often averages, which dont actually reflect any real individual human who actually existed. Easy to forget that.
