I am in shock.
To call it shock is probably an understatement. I am also thrilled. I have no idea how I’m going to write this post in a way that makes sense.
Because Molly’s teeny tiny miracle didn’t arrest. It slowed way down in growing, and they thought it would arrest, hence the call on 6/4 informing me that it died. Maybe because it was immature and was taking some time to catch up or maybe it was just napping. I don’t know what embryos do, and I’m not educated enough on this process to give a logical answer so I’m just going with napping. But it caught up, and eventually wound up on time!
I’ve been a “joy” to be around the last 4 days. And by “joy” I mean a total assclown.
She kept an eye on it, took care of it, and today I have been informed that its is a grade 6AA blastocyst! The reason it was given the grade 6, is because its got so much energy and is so happy, it’s already trying to escape from its little shell and wants to implant right away.
It will be frozen, and I will continue to do retrieval until such time as Dr Yelian tells me its time to transfer. How cool is the idea of a hatching embryo you can actually see pictures of?
I don’t even know what to say really. The part that just makes me smile like a lunatic is the term “hatching”. Because its only used when the embryo has a lot of energy and determination, if you know.. cells can be determined.
So without further ado, here is blastocyst number 2. My second little goldfish! A bundle of cells that beat incredible odds thanks to Molly!
