I'm set for transfer on Saturday so my little one will be taken out tomorrow. It's a Blast/Morula.

What success rates have you had in regards to thawing?

I'm feeling a bit anxious atm as it's my only embie, and the fact that out of 11 fertilized from the full stim cycle - I had one AA grade embie transferred (ended in CP) - the rest made it to Blast but not to freeze, bar this one, which isn't a full blast.

Thanks original.gif

Hi BB

Thinking of you with this next transfer and wishing you the best of luck. I believe I have read that the thaw rate is generally stated to be about 90% - but i tried to find that again and couldnt.  Sorry.

I think you are in great territory. You have an 'almost' blast there and they would not have frozen it unless they thought it was worthy of a chance.  

There are so many stories of people having the success they are after with embryos that were not their best.  I hope you add to that statistic.

Mine were all frozen on day 2 but I had a 100% thaw rate - 10 frozen and 10 thawed.

Best of luck wth this cycle Bwok!

We had one fosty which thawed fine
I think it depends on whether your clinic uses new vitrification technique to freeze where thaw rates are 90%+
good luck!

I have had 5 blast frosties, one is still frozen. So far I've had 100% thaw success, though only 1 pg and 1 chem.

Good Luck!

Good luck! I'm thawing my one and only frostie in January and I am already praying every night that they thaw successfully.

I'm in the same position as you Bwok-Bwok. My transfer is set for Monday and I'm so anxious and worried that it won't survive the thaw. It's my one and only frostie.

I've only had one frozen in the past and it didn't survive the thaw so I'm not feeling particularly positive but only time will tell.

Good luck and best wishes, I hope it all goes well for you.

Thanks girls original.gif

The anxiousness has stepped up a notch today - the cramping from the pessaries don't help with it. sad.gif Oh the joys!

Transfer scheduled tomorrow morning - embie thawed nicely and is a 'nice looking blast', so I just need it to hold on until I come and pick it up tomorrow! original.gif

Fingers and toes crossed for you..

Mine thawed nicely too. I am so happy! I was certain I was going to get a phone call this morning saying it didn't survive and I was so nervous the whole drive into the clinic. It wasn't until the embryologist showed me a photo of the embie that I could relax.

Hope to see you in the 2WW group Bwok.

Congrats Milano - I was the same as you with the drive in. When the embryologist came and saw me just before Transfer I did a little *clap hands* when she told me.
