Our remaining 6 embryos’ storage expires in Jan next year so hubby and I were planning to extend the storage to another year. And then I decided to ask the embryologist for the exact grades of all my embryos. Previously we were given a document with pictures of the 8 blasts and they were just labelled as being ‘very good’ poor ‘average ‘. So I wanted the exact grade which consists of a number and 2 letters. The number refers to size of the embryo and ranges from 1 to 6. 6 refers to a fully hatched blast, 5 refers to a hatching blast and so on. The letters beside the number refer to the grade of the fetal cell and placenta respectively. I got all of this info from a friend and my hubby (from dr google).
So the 2 that were transferred (one of which is my 10.5 month old son) were a 5AA grade. Both were hatching at the time of transfer. The rest were 3AA, 3AA, 4BB, 3BB, 3BB, 3BB.
Interesting stuff. Well 1 more day to the blood test! I’m gonna pee on another digital test tomorrow morning.
