A Valuable Resource about Embryo Development

Thank you to one of my fellow Dreamers for finding this blog post. The writer explains the development of an embryo from fertilization to blastocyst. It is fascinating to me and bravo to the writer! She does a great job of explaining a complex subject in a simple manner.

After reading this, I feel like I have a much better understanding of what is going wrong with our embryos. I think this is what the doctors meant to say or should have said rather than simply saying that our embryos have 'metabolic issues.' There is no explanation for why this happens. Or how it can be fixed. But at least it makes our issue a little less mysterious. 


  1. ((Hugs)). I remember reading this when I was going through one of my first IVF cycles. It really explains the embryo development process well.

  2. Just wanted to say I am sending you lots of love. <3 <3 <3

  3. This is a great site. I even sent her pictures of my embryo after my FET because it looked nothing like those pictures and she emailed me back right away explaining everything. Sending you lots of hugs!
