Hey Everyone.  I am just curious if anyone has had success with their final embryo.  Our last one didn't take.  It was a day 6 4BC.  This is our last embryo and will be our final chance at having one more baby.  The embryo is a day 6 3BB, I am curious what others experiences were?  Our son came from a day 5 4BB from the same batch, just wondering if because it's the last one if there is even a chance of it taking?

Hi there, you most definitely have a chance. My last cycle we only had 2 blasts. This was our last attempt for a sibling for our twin girls. One was a 3AA on day 5. We transferred it and it was a bfn. Our last embryo was a day 6 4BB. I am 39 weeks pregnant as we speak with a boy. I wish you all the best with your upcoming transfer! Xoxo

Fresh transfer in Feb 2019 = BFN

FET - June 2019

June 25 - transferred one day 6 grade 2 expanded blast

June 29 - POAS...very very faint line!  

July 4 - beta @ 9dpt = 95, beta @ 11dpt = 311, beta @ 13dpt = 646

July 25 - viability scan @ exactly 7 weeks - one baby with heartbeat of 147!  So very thankful.

August 8 - 9 week ultrasound - baby moving around with heartbeat of 170!

August 30 - 12 week NT scan - all looks well with the babe, heartbeat of 155

October 24 - anatomy scan...everything looks great and we are having a babyboy.gif !  So happy!

From memory, from what I've read, for PGS untested going off only the grading, the best best embryos are 50% and the lowest graded ones are 30% chance. They don't like to transfer very very bad looking embryos because they cause blighted ovums. If your clinic thought it was worth freezing, it has a chance.

 

The age of the mother is another huge factor.

Thanks guys.  Our donor was 31 at the time of her IVF, so she was young and out of the batch so far 3 embryos have been used, 2 have become babies and one hasn't worked.  I'm really hoping to have one more baby, but not sure if I'm grasping at straws as 2 babies have already come from this batch.  But thanks for replies!  It gives me a bit of hope that we have a chance with this one!

Hi CJ ...
I really believe it is quite random which embryos take and some of the most average looking ones can create the live birth babies. My first cycle produced 5 perfect hatching blasts and led to a BFN anf miscarriage. My second cycle produced a paltry 6 eggs and led to 5 decent but not 'perfect' embryos. The first transfer led to my now 6 year old bg twins and my subsequent fet my 3 year old daughter. When defrosted she was a 3 BB and the embryologist mentioned she had degenerated cells even but there was a possibility of regenerating herself. Initial HCG was only 26 10dpt but 2 days later she was off to the races. Long story short ... you can definitely have success with multiple enbryos from the same batch - even those graded poorly. I would hazard a guess that the embryo may even have a higher chance if you found previous success with that batch.

From 0 to 3, thanks.  I am such a pessimist.  I feel I am automatically just jumping to the conclusion that the next one will fail.  I would love to have one more baby, so we will see.  Our original batch of embryos had 4 embryos.  The first worked for our donors, the next worked for us and the third one just failed for us.  So far we have had a high take home baby rate, just crossing my fingers that the next one also will work.  I agree that it is all such pure luck and I sometimes feel luck is not on our side.

CJ - I second what others have said! I really believe if the clinic felt it was worth freezing, you're in with a chance. I won't speak to my first batch of embryos, but this one has gotten better (sort of?) with each one thawed. Our "best" embryo resulted in a chemical. Our next "best" resulted in a miscarriage at 9 weeks. And our mid-range embryo (#3 of 6) has me currently pregnant, at just about 19 weeks. I can't speak for the others because we didn't test any, but I think there is only so much they can really tell from grading - the rest is up to luck.
