I received the official letter in the mail today documenting our embryos, but I have a question. I know that we transferred the only embryo graded as excellent, and then an expanded blast rated good was frozen, but is there a reason why the blast rated as good wasn’t frozen? Was there a 0% chance a transfer with such would have been successful?
Response from the nurse:
They let the embyos develop to day 6 and only freeze if good quality then. You had a BB Blastocyst and a CC Early Blastocyst embryo that were discarded on day 6. I’m sorry there weren’t more for you to freeze. BUT – congratulations on your positive pregnancy! If you want to discuss your report with one of our embryologists you could call the lab at 319-384-5238. Wish you the best!
This really pisses me off. She never did tell me there was a 0% chance those could have turned into healthy babies. From reading others blogs, it seems to me other clinics are a lot more liberal about what they will transfer and freeze. I truly feel like they discarded perfectly acceptable embryos.
