    Hey Leshoja,

    while 2 is a shock after getting so many numbers, they will only freeze those that are in the top grades.

    Here is the info I go - going by this the only way you're going to get better embies is if they were already hatched, yours are about to

    Our IVF clinic and many others that do blastocyst culture and transfer use a blastocyst scoring system originally developed and published by Dr. David Gardner in the late 1990's.
    There are other grading systems for blastocysts , but this one is most widely used.

    Blastocyst Development and Blastocyst Quality Grading (or scoring)
    There are 3 distinct parts to a blastocyst - the two cell types and the fluid cavity (see picture above).
    As development of blastocysts progresses, cells in the 2 components divide and the fluid cavity enlarges.
    With continued blastocyst development the embryo expands, the shell thins, and it hatches from its shell. Blastocyst Implantation into the lining of the uterus can then begin.
    This blastocyst grading system assigns 3 separate quality scores to each blastocyst embryo:
    1. Blastocyst development stage - expansion and hatching status
    2. Inner cell mass (ICM) score, or quality
    3. Trophectoderm (TE) score, or quality
    Expansion grade
    Blastocyst development and stage status
    1. Blastocoel cavity less than half the volume of the embryo
    2. Blastocoel cavity more than half the volume of the embryo
    3. Full blastocyst, cavity completely filling the embryo
    4. Expanded blastocyst, cavity larger than the embryo, with thinning of the shell
    5. Hatching out of the shell
    6. Hatched out of the shell
    ICM grade
    Inner cell mass quality
    A - Many cells, tightly packed
    B - Several cells, loosely grouped
    C - Very few cells
    TE grade Trophectoderm quality
    A - Many cells, forming a cohesive layer
    B - Few cells, forming a loose epithelium
    C - Very few large cells

    have a great trip chiefsgirl, and good luck. not long to wait to test leyshoja, can understand you not wanting to test in shopping centre toilets!
    tuxcat, we must have been in the same room. Di said there were 17 tests/scans today. busy.

    afm, so far so good. there's 8 follicles, 4 on each side. 2x13, 11, 10, 3x9, 8
    hopefully some will grow over the weekend. likely another scan monday. my meds run out monday. though I suspect I'll have to get more for tuesday. these seem like my usual numbers, so I think there'll be 1-2 eggs (in the 13s most likely). still too early to tell, but this aligns with previous cycles. interesting my right side has the 13s, usually my left is dominant.

    leyshoja, congrats on the 2 frosties too! that's great. I don't think you're going to need them for a long time (siblings later perhaps?). sounds like they all great quality

    @winsor those follicles sound like a really good range! yes, sounds to me like you'll be going to tuesday
    @Luckyme1 I forgot to say, I have done the shopping centre testing it wasn't for such a crucial cycle though.
