As first timers, we couldn’t be anything but hopeful on our first Embryo Transfer day. I talk about the process of our blastocyst being transferred and how it can all seem overwhelming and confusing - especially when you’re looking at the screen and the doctor is asking “Can you see it?” (No is the answer, but I say yes anyway.)
It's not a straightforward stats game but I get an expert to help us make sense of the numbers as we begin the anxious 10 day wait for positive news.
- *Expert explanation of what a Blastocyst actually is, what the quality coding means and what the chances are of success from Emma Whitney , Embryologist.
- *Day by day what happens up to the Embryo Transfer and then the longest 10 days wait of our lives.
- *What's it like working on 20,000 transfers. A chat with Sonia Fuentes Lorente our ultra positive Embryo transplant nurse.
- *The difficult decisions - 1 or 2 blastocysts and why defrosting an embryo is possibly quicker than turning it round to three in the microwave.
