5 Frosties

After my hubby rang yesterday and put his foot down (see my last post!) the clinic are freezing our embryos and our consultant actually said he was quite happy to because he felt at least one of the three would survive the thaw. Good news this morning is that two more had moved on and become early blasts. So they are freezing 5. The three full blasts 2 are at grade CC and 1 is a CD which I know isn’t great. The other two I don’t know the grade but are frozen. The last one arrested so clearly isn’t being frozen. The embryologist was very negative but I’ve seen success stories of babies from CC blasts.

Does anyone have any success stories?

I’m at least happy that I have these as my backup for if the good quality frostie doesn’t take xx

No advice but I just wanted to wish you luck. I'm glad you stood your ground and won. I wish I'd fought a bit for my 4 discarded embryos; apparently they would have been fine for transfer but not freezing ☹ xx

I think with lower grade blasts you can have 2 transferred at once which gives a better success rate than putting one back at a time, ive seen a few success stories on this happening. have a word with your consultant and see if that's a possibility maybe? I believe in most cases one attaches and the other sort of miscarries but theres a risk of twins/triplets.xxx

Wow brilliant news Orla!! Our NHS consultant told us not to get hung up on grading....easy for them say I know! However he did back that up with the fact he's seen success with good and poorly graded embryos.....its just an educated guess!! They tend to only freeze ones of better grading as these are the ones most likely to survive the process. Well done!xx

Thank you!! I’m hoping with five then we may get one or two cope with the thaw. And if not then nothing lost! We have the good quality one to use first too xx
