Wanted to update this thread with my results. Those two embryos are now my 2 month old b/g twins. I wonder which embryo was which.

Yay!!!! That's awesome! I hope I have the same results!!!!
Here is our embryo from today, we only had one and I am terrified! It was a late day 4 morula but was starting to blast when they looked again right before the transfer... And they did assisted hatching. I hope this little one sticks! Prays appreciated! This is our last chance!

my only embryo to make it to day 5 - now 21 weeks pregnant!
@fotolori1: good luck!!
@MrsKRB: what did they say about yours? Did they say it was an expanded blastocyst? Or super good quality? Yours doesnt look dramatically different than ours. Just the outer shell.
@MrsKRB: thank you! I have been cramping this afternoon since about 2pm, it is now 7:30, I wonder if that's a good sign?
@fotolori1: it was grade B quality, not hatching. I honestly thought it looked terrible compared to everyone else's beautiful and flat embryos! I think cramping could be implantation or just from the ivf itself, but either way I think it's a good sign

Not going through IVF, but I work in a PGS lab, so I was curious and clicked on this thread. I just wanted to say that it's so cool that you all get pictures of your embryos! I didn't know that centers did that. But it's awesome and you all have such adorable little embryos! Good luck to you all!
@JenGirl: thank you!!!
Love seeing this thread bumped!

I saw this thread bumped and had to add my pic Did a fresh transfer of the hatching blast (on bottom) last Thursday - St. Patty's Day! We were lucky enough to have 3 good enough to be frozen, which is a miracle, considering we didn't even have a blast during our first IVF round.
My beta is not until Monday, 3/28; however, I'm going to POAS tomorrow morning.

This baby (currently 28+5) is from a FET. Frozen at day 4, but grown out overnight to a blastocyst. Expecting a wee girl!
@jaguar: so exciting! She's beautiful!
I love it when this thread pops up! Sending and to everyone! (Ok, it didn't pop up on the boards but something reminded me of this thread and how I've been meaning to respond.)

So here are my two thawed embryos that I transferred back in December. They weren't graded the best and I was feeling very down about them in general. But one of them took and baby girl is due at the end of the month! So I really feel like it doesn't matter how embryos look or how they get graded - they all have chance!
ETA: The embryo on the top... WTF is wrong with it? Why so faint... I agonized over that one the most.
@agold: I'm a scientist and I've worked with a microscope and slides. Maybe that top one was out of focus that's why it's blurry. That's what my guess is. I see the ring around it so the embryo is there.
@bluestriped bee: Thanks for sharing your opinion on it! I came up with so many conspiracy theories about that faded embryo!! I hope you and your babies are doing well!
