    FROZEN embryo photo gallery

    In this day and age, many if not most of us are given pictures of our embryos as a souvenier. We all know that embryos that have been frozen, if transferred immediately, can look A LOT different than fresh embryos, and can go on to produce pregnancies all the same.

    So I'd like to strike up a Frozen Embryo Photo Gallery here. Please - NO CORRESPONDENCE in this thread. PICTURES ONLY. Keep the thread clean for easy viewing. If you have a comment, please start a new thread.

    Post your picture, and try to give as much info as possible. For example, frozen at blast, transferred several hours after thaw. You could also include how many you tried to thaw.

    I'll go first.


    Here is my single blastocyst, thawed our only one, it was "perfect" when frozen, but was not yet re-expanding at the time of transfer. It was thawed (survived ok) and transferred a few hours later.

    Outcome: ??? Holding on to a little hope!

    Here are my two embies from a BFN transfer in 6/05. The first was an 8 cell, and so was the second at one time. But the second only had a couple live cells.

    Here are my 2. The first one already hatched and the second one was hatching right before it was transferred.

    Both embryos were a little over 3 years old. They were frozen on day 5 as blastocysts during a successful IVF. They were also transported to a new clinic 6 months prior to FET by DH and I. Thawed the night before and none were lost during thaw. New RE said they look great and are of good quality. He also told us the new way to measure embryos is good, fair, and poor. Got BFP on 5dp6dt. Still waiting to see if both took!

    The picture of my u/s is with the embryos. The lower right circle is my uterus. At the left hand top corner is a white spot. Right below the spot are two circles. Those are the embryos.

    Here is ours it is from a donor cycle outcome was Bfn.
    It was from a cancelled fresh cycle and a five day blast 95% expanding at transfer. It was thawed an hour before transfer.
