I have had an up and down day today.
With yesterday's call the embryologist told me that we had 8 grade 1 embryos, four of them with the ideal four cells, the others with varying quantities, and one grade 2 embryo with four cells, we were pretty happy. This morning the call wasn't as good.
Three grade 3s with 7 and 8 cells, 4 grade 2 cells with 7 and 8 cells, and two grade 1s, 8 cells and 10 cells. They called us in today for a 3dt. When we got there the embryologist talked us through the lot of them, including the changes that they had made since the call a few hours earlier.
They have decided to freeze three embryos, and have today transferred the embryo that was measuring 10 cell grade 1 this morning, as that was looking the best at time of transfer. The rest they are keeping out for monitoring, but are not hopeful that they will make it to the blastocyst stage.
In the first instance, we have an embryo on board! Hooray! Pregnancy test booked in for 7th September, so now we enter into yet another 2WW (though this time a little different than all of the others).
But I can't help but feel this sense of dread, that I'm sure many of you are familiar with! I was really gutted after today's phone call, with how the embryos have developed. I don't really have a measuring stick for this as I've no idea what is a normal result to expect, having never done it before. Am I silly worrying about this?
