Here's what he told us:
- He thinks we will lose 1 to the thaw, that would have died anyways when we tried to thaw it for transfer. He didn't think we would lose many more on the next thaw, but didn't give us a number.
- It will take 2 weeks to get the results of the testing.
- When asked how many of our 10 embryos does he think will be normal? He said he doesn't know. He said that the sperm is a question mark here. (But - let's be honest, the eggs could be questionable too, although admittedly less likely so). On average the donors have 20% abnormal embryos. (That's great news).
- Should we look at 1 or 2 with CCS? He still thought we should transfer 2 with my history. (Interesting).
- If we transfer 1 normal and we lose it we should start seriously thinking of a gestational carrier. Ouch. Okay.
10 embryos frozen. Eight were frozen on day 5 and two were frozen on day 6. The grades are: 4AA, 5BB, 4BB, 3BB, 2/3, 4AB, 4BB, 2/3, 6BA and 6BA.
I emailed the nurse and said we're going to go ahead with the CCS.
Dr. S was the same as he always has been with us, he answered what we wanted to know, but didn't give us anything more. I find that kind of annoying.
Dad's here tonight and tomorrow, so that's all I can write for today. We're having a good time.
