    I'm so sorry about your job. Stress on top of stress :(
    Sept 2013 started TTC#2 (never got PP period so hoping for the first egg to drop)
    Jan 2014 - diagnosed POF (Premature Ovarian Failure) and told pregnancy not possible without egg donor because my ovaries would never function again with my hormone levels (FSH 136, LH 98.6, AMH <.03, estradiol 0, HCG 7) - using acupuncture, chiropractic care and TCM herbs / supplements
    March 11, 2014 ovulated despite every doctors prognosis!!!
    Oct 2014 hormones (FSH 48, Estradiol 89, HCG 1) not good, but heckuva lot better!

    Nov. 16, 2015 FET of single adopted 5AA embryo - BFN

  • Hi ladies, so I "came out" with infertility yesterday to overwhelming support and love. As a result, a few people contacted me about their embryos. I'm trying not to get too excited (we also started the foster to adopt process on Saturday) but I know you all are pros in the embryo grading department and with IVF. She has 7 embryos 6BB-4AB. I looked at advanced fertility's grading scale and these look kind of midrange? She's already donated 10 to one couple so my fear is they obviously took the highest grades. Can you give me your thoughts on those grades? I haven't spoken to my clinic yet...

    That is exciting!  I'm glad you've found a good direction to move forward.

    It's tough to say, because grading varies (to some extent) from clinic to clinic.  My RE would say that those are great embryos, but I think my clinic rarely gives out A grades.  FWIW, I've never produced anything better than a 5BB+ (or maybe a 5B+B--whatever), so I've done a lot of googling about success with B grade blasts. Apparently they get the job done pretty often. :)  I'm 8dp5dt of the 5BB+ and a 4B+B (I think), and one of them took (I'm assuming not both).   Waaaaaay too early to tell if it will stick, of course.

    That's still a tough decision, though.  Out of curiosity, are all of these embryos from the same donor (17 embryos?!)

    ETA: people debate whether the letter grades or number indicating the stage of development is more important, but the fact that at least one of them made it to 6 (hatched) seems like a very good sign to me!

I looked at advanced fertility's grading scale and these look kind of midrange? She's already donated 10 to one couple so my fear is they obviously took the highest grades. Can you give me your thoughts on those grades? I haven't spoken to my clinic yet...
    That is exciting!  I'm glad you've found a good direction to move forward.

    It's tough to say, because grading varies (to some extent) from clinic to clinic.  My RE would say that those are great embryos, but I think my clinic rarely gives out A grades.  FWIW, I've never produced anything better than a 5BB+ (or maybe a 5B+B--whatever), so I've done a lot of googling about success with B grade blasts. Apparently they get the job done pretty often. :)  I'm 8dp5dt of the 5BB+ and a 4B+B (I think), and one of them took (I'm assuming not both).   Waaaaaay too early to tell if it will stick, of course.

    That's still a tough decision, though.  Out of curiosity, are all of these embryos from the same donor (17 embryos?!)

    ETA: people debate whether the letter grades or number indicating the stage of development is more important, but the fact that at least one of them made it to 6 (hatched) seems like a very good sign to me!


    Well, first of all CONGRATS!! 

    Thank you for your insight. Yes, she actually had 19 embryos. She had two successful singleton pregnancies back to back from them! Thank you! I appreciate your help. 
    Sept 2013 started TTC#2 (never got PP period so hoping for the first egg to drop)
    Jan 2014 - diagnosed POF (Premature Ovarian Failure) and told pregnancy not possible without egg donor because my ovaries would never function again with my hormone levels (FSH 136, LH 98.6, AMH <.03, estradiol 0, HCG 7) - using acupuncture, chiropractic care and TCM herbs / supplements
    March 11, 2014 ovulated despite every doctors prognosis!!!
    Oct 2014 hormones (FSH 48, Estradiol 89, HCG 1) not good, but heckuva lot better!

    Nov. 16, 2015 FET of single adopted 5AA embryo - BFN

    @tortuga47 Glad the response to you coming out was positive.

    My status has changed from being on hold to actively cycling. I am current on Lupron, the devil drug, in preparation for my last FET. AF should come week, and if all goes well (a big, big leap of faith) ET will be between May 11-15. I am trying, though not succeeding well, at being in the moment and taking it one step at a time.
