Hi Stacey,Hey gumdrops glad you enjoyed your break, im Pretty sure that they wouldn’t have said they were expanding if they wernt, they’re pretty straight forward with their embryo grading and will tell you if they’re not very good from my own experience and from everyone on here, that’s been previously. Each clinic and country grade slightly differently so it can be hard to compare embryos, even by photos for the untrained eye, trust me, I went through dozens upon dozens of embryo photos after my transfer with dogus, checking the photos they gave me of the embryos that where “mine”, so many that infact I came across “my” embryos amongst the hundreds I was looking at 😂 anyway I digress, mine were only taken to day 6 because I couldn’t get there in time for a 5 day transfer, so if mine were a day 5 transfer as they were supposed to be then mine wouldn’t have been as far along in the growing process as they were, so I’d say they would have been at expanded and blastocyst stage on day 5. They chuck out anything they don’t consider good quality, they’re quite ridged with their grading compared to other clinics and many clinics freeze lower grade embryos that really don’t have much of a chance, so you can rest assured that the ones that you have would have looked good under the microscope. Of course perfect looking embryos don’t always make a baby, so that’s hard to get your head around as well, as sometimes the not so perfect ones do Unfortunately its all still a gamble as to which embryos will stick and which won’t and why they do or don’t. Russian roulette really.
well I had my breast scan yesterday and they found some “things” to measure, I’ve been googling images as well lol and I’m pretty sure that one is a straight cyst, although for the untrained eye I’m just hoping. Not sure what the other two spots were though, so if it comes back as needing more investigations then thats pretty much me out I suppose as I won’t be able to get anything done in time for when we leave etc, and if it’s the big C , that, including my age atm would write me off. Anyway hopefully results will be back by the end of the week. Last day of the pill tomorrow as well, so hopefully some type of bleed will happen next week then it’s back off to the dr for the flush 🥴
I know, I shouldn’t torture myself with googling, thank you for reassuring me, it really does help and I do know deep down that Zlin wouldn’t freeze poor quality/slow embryos, I keep telling myself this.
Sorry to hear about your scan, praying that the results come back clear at the end of the week, what an awful worry that must be for you xx
