I know I should let this go, but I guess I’m trying to find reasons why it didnt work so I have hope that my next FET will work. This is my 2nd PGS normal embryo that failed. First was a mmc and this one failed to implant. I had my beautiful son in between. This embryo doesnt look right to me, it just looks off. The second they handed me the picture, my stomach sank and I had a gut feeling the cycle wasnt going to work. I asked my RE and it said it was PGS normal and was fine. But that cant be the end all be all, right? My son looked nothing liked this. Does anyone else think something looks wrong with this embryo?

Hi bee. I am very sorry to hear about your FET. I know absolutely nothing about what embryos are supposed to look like. I know the grading they do before PGS testing is mostly a beauty contest: I also know the rollercoaster that IVF is and how hard it can be sometimes with high highs and low lows. Sending strength and positive vibes your way.

I’m so sorry you are going through this. Did they tell you the grade of your embryo? From my understanding, the PGS results are more important than the grade, but neither are guaranteed to result in a successful pregnancy. It’s so hard not having a definitive answer, and IVF is such a hard experience. I wish you peace as you process the news and hope that you find a path forward.
