I’m also really keen to hear how it went. Sounds like you went through a lot with this IVF cycle! And sorry about your family news too- poor you!

I’m sorry about your negative test.  TTC over 40 is hard.  IVF success rates at 43 is less than 5% but if it happens it often takes a lot of transfers.  The one thing PGS does tell you is whether the embryo has the correct number of chromosomes.  At 43 the  aneuploidy rate is 90% or so.  So if you have 8 blastocysts hopefully you have at least 1 euploid one and hopefully that will be the one transferred next. Here a some helpful articles about maternal age and aneuploidy rates.  I found it helpful to do a lot of research so I could have realistic expectations.  Good luck!
