    I think it depends on the clinic but they would no doubt be recording it in your records at the very least. I never got grades given to me with mine which in hindsight was a good thing. I didn't need anything else to make me feel like it was never going to work!!! they would just say where it was at - morula, early blast, perfect for where it was meant to be etc.

    ... But am also a tad worried about getting AF any day now & starting everything if I still feel like this? Can't believe we decided to go ahead with an August FET & now I'm sick as a dog days before we start! Sod's law eh..
    Sorry to hear you still feel like crap hon but as far as cycling goes I wouldn't let that stop me. Transfer is another matter though. I was told that if you are feeling really unwell you should reschedule transfer as your body is already busy fighting infection. Big hugs to you Hope you recover soon xxx

Plus some of you have thoughtfully responded to my comments and I respond in my head and think I'll post a reply once I finish reading the 10 pages worth of posts I'm behind on, but then I get distracted and only reply to the last few posts. I don't mean to be a neglectful online friend. This thread is travelling at super lightening speed at the moment (kind of like midnite's second line!!).

    No guilt on The Hub hon We do what we can, when we can Everyone understands, and is in the same boat.

    Depends on where you go hon. At my clinic the lab tech always sat down with me and told me what grade my emby was, and why it was given that grade. So for example, the last transfer I had they said "Look, it's a BC grade. It's a bit dark which is expected due to your age. It's divided to the expected number of cells but is slightly fragmented.." etc.

    Before I knew to ask the tech, in my prior cycle, I went to meet with my FN and asked her. She told me that my emby that cycle was "a AA grade and looked fantastic. Really unusual for someone of your age to get an emby that good..."

    Now, things to bare in mind....

    Even though that miraculous emby looked good, it wasn't. It was a dud. What an emby looks like and what it is genetically are two very different things. In the end it implanted VERY quickly but I had a MC at 8 1/2 weeks.

    The other thing with gradings is that a AA emby can so easily drift away, yet a CC could be a miracle fighter emby. You really can't tell. Plenty of women are holding their babies from lesser grade embies, and yet here I am with empty arms. Also, keep in mind that when you hear a grading, it does taint your expectations and hence your faith in the emby. Right from the start I had no faith my BC emby would take. How sad that I, as that emby's Momma, did not support it. From now on in I choose not to ask for that very reason.

    As far as reports go...I've never received anything on paper, and I've not heard of anyone receiving a copy in writing but for the occasional 'mistake' where it was given to the Momma by accident.

    Oh wow @Charlie74 how good would it have been to read that report. I wish we got a report like that at each cycle as you say its our information.

    QFG labs send a report on how your embryo's are going to your FS every day. They'll also grade them on days 3/5. Those reports will no doubt be in your file. (That's how they did it when I was there...don't think it's changed).

    I also spoke with an Embryologist every day at the lab & got a report/grading about my embryo's verbally over the ph.

    Nothing yet. Just an acknowledgement from the FS. The nurse rarely responds.

    Grr. This process is so stressful and I find myself spending countless hours on google researching it all..
    You don't unless you have them PGD tested Luv.
