We got the results of our CGH embryo testing results last week. Out of six embryos tested, we ended up with four normal or euploid embryos and two abnormal or aneuploid embryos. That was great news for us!
They told us to expect half of them to be aneuploid, so we beat the odds!
We are so glad we did the testing! Of the six embryos, we had four highly graded embryos at grade 8 (the highest) and two fair graded embryos at 5. The two abnormal embryos were two of the highly graded ones. Therefore, selecting them for a transfer would have resulted in a 50/50 shot of getting one of the abnormal ones.
It’s sad knowing that two of them are not normal. Normally, you would never know and while information is power, it’s kind of sad in this circumstance.
Here’s what the results look like
Now, the HUGE question is how many will we transfer to our surrogate. One or Two? There are so many factors in this decision and it’s really weighing on me. We have a few more days to decide.
The big day with our surrogate is next week — the transfer is on March 6th. Wish us luck!
