Early blastocyst success- it does happen!


At this very moment I am freaking out big time, as my beta HCG shows I’m pregnant.

Having had a mmc at 11weeks last March, I’ve learnt that a positive pregnancy test doesn’t mean much. Yes it means the embryo has implanted but it’s pretty much it. The road is very long and definitely treacherous.

And I’m sorry if you think I’m being negative, but it’s just the truth.

However, I’m happy to say I was wrong when I thought my cavitating morula/early blastocyst wouldn’t implant- IT DID!!!

After the transfer I was so upset because of the ‘bad embryo’ I ended up with, but I want you ladies who are in the same situation that it does happen!!!!

Whether the pregnancy progresses though, it’s a different story.....😉

Right now I can only be happy that I was wrong! ❤️

Yay! Good luck! Sometimes how an embryo looks or being a bit slow just means nothing! Fingers crossed for you that this is your little fighter, it sounds good! xx

I hope you’re right Orla ❤️🤞🏻✨thank you hun xxx

Yayyy! So pleased for you. Wishing you all the best for this one tough cookie!! You deserve it xxx

Thank you penguin dear! It’s so hard to believe though! 🙈xx

I can imagine! Will you do a second beta? Hope that will put you a bit more at ease though I’m sure it probably will never get easier for those who have suffered losses before. Have everything crossed for you hun xxx

Yes I’m doing another one tomorrow...I’ll also check progesterone and TSH (I’m on meds for hypothyroidism) ...I don’t think I will EVER be able to relax 🙈I just need to try take one day at a time ....whens your OTD??? 😍🤞🏻✨wishing you all the best!!!! 🍀🍀🍀🍀🍀🍀

All the best for today’s test! Have everything crossed for you 🤞🏽🤞🏽🍀🍀 one day at a time is a great approach! Ha mine feels like an age away - 13th Dec. I have a lot of anxiety about testing (never had a BFP) so I’ve put that date in a box in the back of my mind! 🙈 thank you for your wishes and look forward to hearing how you get on today xxx

Awww thanks! I won’t have the results until tomorrow 😣I totally understand how you feel, I can’t even get to book the scan 🙈I told my hubby that I won’t look at the screen! I will look away...

You know, before getting my BFP was so used to BFNs that when I actually had my first BFP (my last pregnancy) I tested at 4am while my husband slept and thought I was seeing double! I woke him up asking him to look at the test because I thought I was seeing things lol and it was a strong line on OTD, not earlier...

Anyway, I have everything crossed for you my friend 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🍀🍀🍀🍀🍀🍀🍀🍀🍀✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨

All the best, hope it’s not too anxious a wait til the results tomorrow!

Thank you peanut 🥜❤️

Congratulations darling! I have been waiting for your good news. Told you it didn’t matter if it was morula. So happy for you

Thank you so much hun xx It’s just the beginning 🙈 will see how the situation develops... hope you’re well ❤️

Congratulations xx

Thank you 😊

Congratulations 🥳 lovely news. Wish you all the best 🤞🏻🤞🏻 can I ask what grade your embryo was? xx

Thank you hun! My embryo was a cavitating morula/early blastocyst so couldn’t be graded, as it was just turning into a blastocyst....xx

Thank you for replying. I don’t really understand all this grading. It’s so confusing 🤷🏼‍♀️ xx

Gradings are just a way for embryologists to pick the ‘best looking’ embryo when you have many...so you transfer the one they think has a better choice....but then it’s not always what happens...because at the end of the day they only look at the morphology of embryos and not at what’s inside (the DNA). Good embryos can have abnormal DNA (more often in women aged 35 and over) and vice versa...

*chance, not choice!

That's great news, congratulations! Wishing you a happy and healthy pregnancy. Xx

Thank you so much 😊 xx

Congratulations on receiving your positive beta. Crossing everything that your positive progresses into a health pregnancy and baby xx

Thank you so much hun xxx ☺️

Yay!!! I remember you saying you were so disappointed! It’s such a rollercoaster of emotions! Sooooo up and down, and surprising sometimes! You can get an up when you least expect it! Praying it sticks for you and you have a smooth pregnancy that you can try to enjoy! I can’t imagine the worry of something going wrong but have faith and fingers crossed for this time!! Keep us updated!!

This post has given me some hope. I've just had two cavitating morulas transfered and been told it's a 10% chance of success. Thanks for posting

I’m glad it did! 10% seems a bit low to me....fingers crossed for your BFP hun 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🍀🍀🍀🍀🍀
