Hospital called – our three remaining embryos aren’t suitable for freezing. They only freeze good quality blastocysts and unfortunately those three haven’t made the grade.
I’m disappointed but not surprised – over the course of 5 cycles we’ve only ever had one frostie (which failed to defrost anyway). I can’t help but feel a bit nervous though. Ok, our embryos don’t make it to the freezer because they aren’t good quality. So what does that say about the two I have in the oven at the moment? Does that explain why we’re on our 5th cycle of IVF, despite having seemingly ‘great’ looking embryos transferred every time?
Anyway I have a bad cold and my PMA light is blinking red/empty. I’m bloated, constipated (thanks progesterone!) and my stomach looks like it has been attacked by Lilliputian bows and arrows. This freezer news has made me feel a bit sad.
I think I’ll have a raspberry Magnum.
