    Dont worry mate, taken me like 3 years to figure out this much and most times i still feel like im wandering around blindfolded. And ive noticed embryologists often arent 'people persons'. They're not real good at explaining stuff to normal people or doing all the touchey feely talky stuff. They are good at describing what they can see but theyre not really about explaining the meaning or significance of what they can see. Anyway, i bloody well hope your embies are AAA mate and that they make babies. Baby dust to you xox

    Hehehe, I noticed that with this guy too you took the words right outta my mouth! Hehehe. He didn't tell me what any of it meant and then told me I would have to speak to my specialist for grades etc. It's silly bcos he's supposed to know better than my fs. Anyway let's see. Aww thanks hoping for AAA hehe that made me laugh hehe I keep thinking about energiser AAA batteries lol
    Thanks so much for helping you made me feel much better

    @warratag hey there, i know this thread is prob done and dusted but i was thinking today about fragmentation and another way of explaining it, and i was thinking... when your embryo's cells divide, its a bit like breaking a sausage roll into halves, what you want is to end up with 2 nice even sized pieces (cells) but there's always gonna be a few flakes of pastry that break off in the process too and thats ok. So that would be like low/normal fragmentation.
    But once i remember i was trying to break a Crunchie chocolate bar in half and when i tried to break it into 2 evenly sized pieces, i ended up with shards and chunks of crunchie everywhere (fragmentation ), i did end up with 2 larger pieces than all the rest (cells) but they were unevenly sized (not good cells) and about a third of the crunchie was lost in shards n chunks (high fragmentation).
    So i guess, i kind of think of it like that. You want your embies to divide like a sausage roll and its ok to have some pastry flakes fall off. Its really almost impossible to do it without that happening. But you dont want them to divide like a Crunchie. :-) (Lol im not a dr or anything in case you couldnt tell but this is how i think about it and i was bloody hungry all day today for sausage rolls and crunchies. And ive just made this analogy up myself, its not from a fs who explained it this way so do check with someone/ fs about your embies and fragmentation when you speak to him tomorrow i guess would be your day 5 call, good luck xox)
